WATCH: Killing Eve will end with season four

Another added: "So I guess this show really isn’t worth fighting for, huh? Wish you could share even 1% of the love the fans have for it. During this pandemic, other shows have excelled in keeping the audience entertained with new content, lives, interviews... so sad you let this one slip away."

The series follows MI5 agent Eve who, after getting sick of her boring desk job, joins a task force determined to find a mysterious female assassin committing murders, seemingly at random. The assassin in question, Villanelle, is a fashion-conscious sociopath who becomes as fascinated with Eve as Eve is with her.

Are you sad to see the show end?

Jodie Comer, who plays Villanelle, previously opened up about playing the role, telling the BBC: "I wasn’t influenced by anyone, I just ran with it and tried not to put her in a box. I think what people have enjoyed about her is that they find humanity in her. 

"I’ve always tried to lean into the scenes and the story in a way which feels truthful. I’ve never stuck to any boundaries. There is a lot of myself in her with regards to the comedy and her sense of humour. Probably a little too much actually. But I hope that’s what makes her fun to watch."
