Killing Eve is a British spy thriller television series, produced in the United Kingdom by Sid Gentle Films for BBC America and BBC Three.

The series follows Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), a British intelligence investigator. She has to capture or kill psychopathic assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer). As the chase progresses, the two develop a fascination with each other which verges on obsession. The relationship moves to and fro during the series. The consequences of some of Villanelle's murders drive the events scripted. Villanelle is Russian-trained, yet politics is in the background of the series. The relationship between the two women is the real driving force. The fourth series[3] premiered on 27 February 2022 on BBC America, 28 February 2022 on BBC iPlayer and 5 March 2022 on BBC One and concluded on 10 April 2022.[4]
