The upcoming Season 4 of Killing Eve will be the last.
We’ve known for a while it was coming, but BBC America has started to roll out the promotion for Killing Eve‘s final bow.
Under the supervision of new lead writer Laura Neal (Sex Education), as is the show’s tradition, Eve and Villanelle will star in eight final episodes. Neal wrote two for Season three, as well as collaborating with the then lead writer Suzanne Heathcote on the finale. She is also an executive producer on the season four.
Here’s the synopsis:
After the emotional climax of Season Three, Eve, Villanelle and Carolyn are in very different places. Following Eve and Villanelle’s exchange on the bridge, Eve is on a revenge mission, while Villanelle has found a brand-new community in an attempt to prove she’s not a “monster.”
Having killed Paul, Carolyn goes to extraordinary lengths to continue to chase down The Twelve and the person that ordered Kenny’s hit.
This season follows our extraordinary women, each driven by passion, revenge and obsession, building towards a messy, nuanced and totally glorious series finale.
As well as Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh, both Fiona Shaw’s Carolyn and Camille Cottin’s Hélène are confirmed as returning. While there’s no actual footage, there is an atmospheric teaser. You could see it as a visual “save the date” invitation:
Killing Eve begins its final season across the pond on Sunday 27th February with a double-episode premiere on BBC America. The show will also stream on AMC+ one week early, for those who can’t wait.
We’re still waiting on a UK airdate, but hopefully it will be forthcoming soon!
