The 4th season of the British spy thriller Killing Eve aired on BBC America on February 27, 2022, and said goodbye to screens with the season finale on April 10, 2022. Killing Eve Season 5, on the other hand, is in the spotlight these days, as the Season 4 finale made our jaws drop. But will there be a 5th season of Killing Eve? Or has the series been canceled? Here is everything we know about the British series.
Killing Eve is based on the Villanelle novel series by Luke Jennings and was produced by Colin Wratten and Elinor Day. Executive producers include Phoebe Waller-Bridge, whom we know for her role in The Fleabag, Emerald Fennell and Sandra Oh, who also plays the role of Eve Polastri in the series. The series also stars Jodie Comer as Oksana Astankova / Villanelle, Fiona Shaw as Carolyn Martens, Kim Bodnia as Konstantin Vasiliev and Owen McDonnell as Niko Polastri, among many others.
Killing Eve first aired on BBC America on April 8, 2018 and revolves around Eve Polastri, a British intelligence investigator tasked with catching the psychopathic murderer Villanelle. However, over the course of the series, the two develop a mutual obsession. Without much ado, let’s get straight to the latest news about Killing Eve Season 5.
Is There Killing Eve Season 5?
We’re sorry to inform Killing Eve fans, but there isn’t Killing Eve Season 5. In fact, it looks like there will never be a 5th season of the spy thriller series. The BBC series was canceled in March 2021, two months after BBC America announced the launch of Season 4. Unfortunately, however, no reason for the cancelation was announced.
We suspect that the reason for the cancelation of Killing Eve is the mixed reviews that the last two seasons received. We know that seasons 1 and 2 were highly praised by both critics and viewers. Lead actresses Sandra Oh and Judie Comer won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress and the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, along with the other slew of awards the series received.
However, the positive reviews that Killing Eve received decreased with time, as well as the awards that the series received. To be precise, in seasons 3 and 4, Killing Eve won only one award, the Location Managers Guild Awards, although it was nominated for many awards. Therefore, there might have been a significant drop in ratings, which may have led to the cancelation of the series.
Is Killing Eve on Netflix?
The answer to this question is: No. Killing Eve isn’t available on Netflix. So how can you watch the series? You can stream the first 3 seasons of the series on Hulu. If you have a cable provider that has access to BBC America, you can also watch the series on demand. You can also stream Killing Eve on Amazon Prime and watch it on AMC+.
Who Are The 12 in Killing Eve?
The 12 in Killing Eve, also known as Dozen Incorporated, is a shadowy organization that uses assassins to commit murders. In other words, it’s the antagonist in the series. The organization communicates with its assassins by sending postcards that reveal the location of the next attack. Villanelle was one of those assassins hired by The 12, but she didn’t know she was involved with the organization.
Who Killed Villanelle?
The controversial finale of Killing Eve showed viewers the tragic end of the main character Villanelle. She was shot by an unknown assassin after killing all the members of The 12. However, it was later revealed that the assassin who killed Vilanelle was Carolyn. She killed Vilanelle to secure her way back to M16 by getting rid of The 12 and everyone associated with the group.
