A first look at the fourth and final season of ‘Killing Eve’ has been revealed, as well was an early 2022 air date.
The first two episodes of Jodie Comer’s final turn as the psychopathic assassin Villanelle will air on BBC America on February 27 at 8pm Eastern Time, and will be available on BBC iPlayer in the UK immediately afterwards. Further UK broadcast details are as yet unclear, but in the US, episodes will debut weekly on AMC, starting on February 28 at 9pm ET. The entire season will be available to stream a week early on the AMC+ platform, beginning on February 20.
Deadline reports that the hit show’s last outing will see Villanelle and Sandra Oh’s titular Eve “in very different places”, with the latter out for revenge after the events of the season three finale, while the former is striving to prove that she is not a “monster”. Both Oh and Comer have won multiple awards for their portrayals in the humorously-inflected cat-and-mouse drama. Alongside a number of new photos, a teaser trailer for season four has also been released – you can watch it below.
The season began filming in October. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who penned the show’s first season, remains as an executive producer for season four. BBC America are apparently exploring multiple possibilities for a spin-off after ‘Killing Eve’ ends. Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar last month, Comer confirmed she felt the time was right to wrap up the series she made her name with back in 2018.
“I’m trying not to think about it too much, honestly,” said the Liverpudlian. “It’s sad, you know? I’ve been with this character for a really, really long time. I would rather we ended on a good note and kept our integrity, instead of going on and on, and being kicked out the door.”
Speaking about rumours that the mooted spin-off could be a movie, Comer went on: “I don’t think so. I think they’re kind of keeping their options open, like, who knows what the future holds? But for sure the thing I will miss the most is not having to apologise – all the mischief I get away with, there’s something so fun about that.”
