Stop everything: we have our first look at the final season of Killing Eve, coming early 2022

The official Killing Eve social media pages have released tantalising first look images teasing the fourth and final series of the dark comedy thriller.

The wait is nearly over. The hotly anticipated fourth and final series of Killing Eve will be landing on our screens in early 2022, and we’ve been treated to some exciting, albeit slightly bizarre, first look images to stoke the fire even more.

The six new images re-acquaint us with some familiar faces. Jodie Comer’s Villanelle appears in what appears to be a church, leading a sermon of sorts. Sandra Oh’s Eve, on the other hand (who we last saw walking away from her friend/foe at the end of season 3) stares menacingly at a fishtank and appears in a disguise of a blonde wig and glasses.

Fiona Shaw’s Carolyn Martens can also be seen, ever the straight-talking MI5 agent now deeply embroiled in Villanelle and Eve’s cat and mouse game. There’s also a glimpse of Hélène (Camille Cottin) the high-ranking agent of The Twelve who we’re sure is going to cause even more trouble this season.

A show as tense and dramatic as Killing Eve deserves to go out with a bang in its final season. Who knows what the writers have in store for us this time? But we can’t wait to find out.

In a previous behind-the-scenes clip, we saw a shot of Villanelle in, what looks like, a church. Repenting for some sins or is executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge going back to familiar territory? An Andrew Scott cameo perhaps?

In a very exciting clip posted on show’s official social media channels, we were taken behind the scenes of the hit show and given glimpses of the flawed-but-fabulous assassin and Eve back in action.

Finally, we saw the back of a blonde head. Who is that? They’re wearing a trenchcoat and they’re besides a little girl. The hair is too short to be Villanelle’s so maybe she’s wearing a wig.

But wait.

They turn and we’re almost certain that’s actually Sandra Oh’s Eve in disguise. How intriguing… where is she? Wait, isn’t she on the run? Who is the child?

“Our lips are sealed. Mostly” the caption reads. Helpful…

So what do we know so far about the upcoming series? Well, we know the lead writer of the fourth instalment of the show is Laura Neal, who has previously worked on Sex Education and Secret Diary of a Call Girl. 

Neal will be the fourth female writer to take the lead on the show. Waller-Bridge handed over lead writer duties to Emerald Fennell for season two, and Suzanne Heathcote headed the writing on season three.

Commenting on passing the baton on, Heathcote said: “After the most incredible year on Killing Eve, I’m so excited the next season is going to be led by such a brilliant talent. I cannot wait to see what amazing things Laura’s going to do with this world and the characters in it.”

Comer and Oh have both been confirmed to return, but no further details have been announced yet on what we can expect from the final season in terms of plot.

Without giving too much away from season 3, our protagonists were last seen walking away from each other, turning around for one last look right before the credits rolled. They can’t keep away from one another, so we can only expect them to be drawn back together for this final run.

But will it be a clash or a happily ever after? We only have to wait a few more months to find out.

Killing Eve will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer in early 2022. New episodes will drop weekly straight after it airs on BBC America.
