Killing Eve has been the most extraordinary journey and one that I will be forever grateful for…Thank you to all the fans who’ve supported us throughout and come along for the ride. Although all good things come to an end, it’s not over yet. We aim to make this one to remember!”

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) created the series, based on the Villanelle novels by Luke Jennings. Waller Bridge also served as showrunner for the first season, followed by Emerald Fennell (The Crown) for the second season and Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) for the third season.

Buckle up!”

Killing Eve exploded in popular culture and attracted a dedicated and committed fan base from its very first episode…Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s brilliant adaptation of the source material, the unforgettable characters given life by Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, and the entire cast, along with our partners at Sid Gentle Films, have delivered a one-of-a-kind roller-coaster ride that has taken our breath away.
