Killing Eve's fourth season will be its last, BBC America has confirmed.
The BBC drama was renewed for a fourth season, which will have eight episodes, with production starting later this year.
As reported by Variety, star of the show, Sandra Oh, said: "Killing Eve has been one of my greatest experiences and I look forward to diving back into Eve's remarkable mind soon.
"I'm so grateful for all cast and crew who have brought our story to life and to the fans who have joined us and will be back for our exciting and unpredictable fourth and final season."
Jodie Comer, who plays the hit-woman Villanelle, also spoke of her part in the show.
She said: "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!"
Season four production was delayed last year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, but it looks like as lockdown restrictions in the UK and Europe continue to ease, progress is starting up again.
Laura Neal will be head writer and executive producer. Each season, a new head writer is announced, meaning that Neal will be following in the footsteps of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Emerald Fennell and Suzanne Heathcote.
The show was a cult hit from the very beginning, with a dedicated army of fans. On the off-chance that you've been living under a rock and not yet watched it, Killing Eve follows the stories of detective Eve (Sandra Oh) and her assassin/rival/love interest Villanelle (Jodie Comer)
Dan McDermott, president of original programming for AMC Networks, said: "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.
"We could not be more thankful for the extraordinary talents and efforts of everyone involved, particularly Sandra and Jodie, who made Killing Eve much more than a television show. We look forward to what is sure to be an unforgettable final season and to exploring potential extensions of this compelling universe."
