A British comedy-drama spy thriller, 'Killing Eve' has struck the right chords with viewers as two women — equally obsessed with each other — go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.​ Starring Sandra Oh as Eve Polastri and Jodie Comer as Villanelle, the series is all set for its fourth installment, and fans can't wait to watch it.

After it was renewed in January for Season 4, executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle expressed her excitement and said, "I am beyond thrilled that we can continue our extraordinary journey. It is a testament to everyone involved that we have been picked up so early – the magnificent actors, writers, directors and production team. We are extremely lucky to work with such fierce and dedicated people."

Release date

‘Killing Eve’ Season 4 was renewed back in January, however, there is no confirmation on the date of its release. With the coronavirus crisis, all TV productions are shut down at the moment and there is no speculated date about when it will be back on the screeners. Going by its earlier schedule, all three seasons have got an April release. If there is no delay, it's possible the show may come back in April 2021.

Plot​​

The third season gets a slow start but finally, after eight long weeks, reveals the answers behind Carolyn Martens's (Fiona Shaw) son, Kenny Stowton's mysterious fall to his death. 

The series takes quite a turn after that teasing final scene between Villanelle (Jodie Comer) and Eve (Sandra Oh), where the two once again almost let go of each other and walk their own opposite ways, but then paused and turned around. Their smiles said it all and while Season 4 might begin with them caving into the chemistry they have given us for three years now, it will be fun to watch what hassles The Twelve has planned for them.
