Fans of the hit BBC series Killing Eve have expressed their sadness after it was revealed that its upcoming fourth season will be its last.

The Bafta-winning cat-and-mouse drama, devised by Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge, first began on BBC Three in 2018.

The dark thriller, based on the novels from British author Luke Jennings, sees investigator Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) chase down the elusive and psychopathic assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer).

The programme has since garnered a huge fanbase and a cult following, with the fourth season renewed prior to season three’s premiere in April last year.

News of its fourth season was announced on Killing Eve’s official Twitter account on Tuesday, accompanied by the confirmation that it would begin filming in the summer.

“Anything worth having is worth the wait,” the tweet reads.

Oh commented on the news by describing the show as “one of my greatest experiences”, while Comer said it has been “the most extraordinary journey” which she “will be forever grateful for”.

“Although all good things come to an end, it’s not over yet. We aim to make this one to remember,” she added.

Meanwhile, followers of the show said the announcement was “sad”, with many left in denial:

The fourth season is due to air next year, with reports already surfacing of spin-off series being explored.
