Killing Eve is an English dark comedy show whose first season was aired on 8th April 2018. The drama premiered on BBC One in the United Kingdom while it streamed on BBC America in the United States. Fortunately, all three released seasons have been successful in receiving positive reviews from critics as well as from the audience. The series has got impressive 8.7/10 stars on TV.com while 8.7/10 stars on the IMDb.
The series has been honored with several awards like Golden Globe for Sandra Oh (who plays Eve), an Emmy for Jodie Comer (Villanelle), Baftas for Fiona Shaw (Carolyn), and for best drama show. The BBC has disclosed that Killing Eve was the top series on the network in 2019 as it got more than 40.4 million views on BBC iPlayer.
However, after the conclusion of season 3 in 2020, show lovers are enthusiastically waiting for season 4. They are craving to know the Killing Eve season 4 release date. If you too want to know the updates of the upcoming season then take a look at what we have discovered so far –
Are We Getting To Know Killing Eve Season 4 Release Date?
Unfortunately, neither the BBC nor the creators have announced the release date of season 4. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the shooting dates of season 4 have been switched. So, definitely, the upcoming season will take a longer time to arrive.
Starting three seasons were aired in the United Kingdom in each spring and they were filmed a year ago in the duration of summer and winter. But in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic arrived which spoiled every plan and forced the production units to shift the filming dates. So, season 4 is not going to arrive in the spring of this year.
A trusted source, Deadline validated in July 2020 that the filming of Killing Eve season 4 episodes were planned to start from August 2020 in Europe, but it got suspended and after that, the next dates of filming weren’t told. While conversating with BT.com scriptwriter Isis Davis, cleared that the filming dates of season 3 are not yet planned.
She mentioned “I don’t think anyone really knows. With the new rules, and with Boris Johnson saying we’re going to hit a second peak, I don’t think anyone in the industry knows what’s going on apart from writers because all we can do is write. For the production side of things, everyone’s unsure.”
How Will Killing Eve Season 4 Plot Be?
At the ending of season 3, we have seen an emotional interaction between Eve and Villanelle. However, we didn’t see what actually occurred after that. If you are thinking that everything will perfect between duo then you may be wrong according to Comer.
She confirmed, “I’m not sure I see a true happy ending for Villanelle because I think her own worst enemy is herself and we all know that’s impossible to get away from.”
Villanelle has come to the conclusion that now she will leave the profession of a murderer while Carolyn will deny appeals of providing his services as a double executive for MI6, probably we will get to see the path that she is going to adopt in the future. Will Carolyn stay alive till the conclusion of season 4 as she has become cruel murder in season 3 or she is going to face consequences for her extemporary murder?
What about Konstanin – Are we going to chase him to Cuba and explore if he really murdered Kenny(Sean Delaney)? We pray that he survived a heart attack.
Who Are The Screen Writers For Killing Eve Season 4?
Laura Neal is the main script maker for season 4. She will also serve as an executive producer of the show. Bafta award-winner Kayleigh Llewellyn who has made scripts for BBC drama In My Skin has been also included in the team of writers. Isis Davis has also got the role of writer for season 4. She has acted in several television shows and films like EastEnders, Silent Witness, and The Secret Garden.
