‘Killing Eve’ To End With Upcoming 4th Season. Spin-Off Ideas In The Works.
AMC Networks, who co-own BBC America with BBC Studios, have announced the critically acclaimed ‘Killing Eve‘ will end with the upcoming eight-episode 4th Season.
The fourth (and now final) season of ‘Killing Eve’ is scheduled to begin production early this summer, filming in the U.K. and locations across Europe with a view to premiering in 2022. However, AMC is working with partner Sid Gentle Films, who produce the drama, to develop a number of potential spinoff ideas to extend the show’s iconic universe.
“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.”
The series star Golden Globe, SAG and Critics’ Choice Award winner Sandra Oh, Emmy and BAFTA winner Jodie Comer, Emmy nominee and BAFTA winner Fiona Shaw and BAFTA nominee Kim Bodnia. Laura Neal (‘Sex Education’, ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl’) continues the ‘Killing Eve’ tradition of a new lead writer every season, following Waller-Bridge, Emerald Fennell and Suzanne Heathcote. Neal is also an executive producer on season four.
“We have been unbelievably blessed to work with extraordinary human beings throughout the life of Killing Eve,” adds Executive Producer Sally Woodward Gentle. “From the magical Phoebe, to the delectable Emerald, Suzanne and now Laura, headed by the super-powers of Sandra, Jodie, Fiona and Kim, and with brilliantly talented directors and crew. No one knew what an adventure we were embarking on and there’s so much more to come. Buckle up!”
Executive producers for the upcoming season are Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas, Laura Neal and Sandra Oh. Killing Eve is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd. for BBC America. The series is financed and distributed by Endeavor Content.
“Killing Eve has been one of my greatest experiences and I look forward to diving back into Eve’s remarkable mind soon,” commented star Sandra Oh. “I’m so grateful for all cast and crew who have brought our story to life and to the fans who have joined us and will be back for our exciting and unpredictable fourth and final season.”
