Killing Eve has returned with Sandra Oh's Eve and Jodie Comer's Villanelle going head-to-head one last time in the fourth and final season of BBC One's award-winning drama.


Joining Oh and Comer once again are supporting cast members Fiona Shaw as Carolyn and Kim Bodnia as Villanelle's handler Konstantin – with the actor recently teasing that the new episodes will contain an emotional 'father-daughter' scene between himself and Comer's character.

Season 4 is penned by Sex Education's Laura Neal and also includes several brand new characters, including We Are Lady Parts' Anjana Vasan as an undertaker-turned-assassin.

Sandra Oh plays Eve Polastri

Killing Eve

Who is Eve Polastri? Our heroine Eve returns for a fourth season, now jaded and no longer working for the British secret services. Instead, she's working at a private security firm but spending most of her (and her handsome colleague Yusuf's) time on the tail of The Twelve, and determined to track down Villanelle's former boss, Helene.
Where have I seen Sandra Oh before? The Golden Globe-winning actress is best known for her most iconic role: the over-achieving Cristina Yang in the US medical drama Grey's Anatomy, a role she played from 2005 to 2014. Her other screen credits include The Princess Diaries, Sideways, Sorry, Haters, S**tty Boyfriends, and Hard Candy.
