The crazy world of Killing Eve is coming to a stop with the fourth season now. The cat-and-mouse thriller show has been loved for three season also earning Jodie Comer an Emmy in the mix. The show will soon start filming season 4 in the UK and across Europe early this summer and the eight-episode run will premiere in 2022.
The third season of the Sid Gentle-produced drama premiered in April 2020 and Covid-19 has delayed production of the show that was originally adapted for television by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Sex Education’s Laura Neal is lead writer exec producer of the fourth season, which is also exec produced by Waller-Bridge, Oh, Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Gina Mingacci and Damon Thomas. The series is financed and distributed by Endeavor Content.
The network and production company didn’t disclose specific spinoff ideas and sources suggest that there’s nothing firm in the pipeline but it’s clear that the AMC Networks-owned is keen to extend the Killing Eve universe.
There’s plenty of characters that could be spun off – it’s highly unlikely that Comer or Oh would front a standalone spinoff – including The Twelve, the shadowy organization that is association with Villanelle or The Bitter Pill, a group of investigative journalists that help Polastri investigate.
“Killing Eve exploded in popular culture and attracted a dedicated and committed fan base from its very first episode. Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s brilliant adaptation of the source material, the unforgettable characters given life by Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, and the entire cast, along with our partners at Sid Gentle Films, have delivered a one-of-a-kind roller-coaster ride that has taken our breath away,” said Dan McDermott, president of original programming for AMC Networks. “We could not be more thankful for the extraordinary talents and efforts of everyone involved, particularly Sandra and Jodie, who made Killing Eve much more than a television show. We look forward to what is sure to be an unforgettable final season and to exploring potential extensions of this compelling universe.”
