Starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, Killing Eve centres on two women; Eve (Oh) is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle (Comer) is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Penned by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) and based on the novellas by Luke Jennings, Killing Eve follows these two women, equally obsessed with each other, as they go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.

Killing Eve is the only new ad-supported drama in more than a decade to show consecutive ratings growth over its first four episodes across total viewers and both key demos. Sunday night’s fourth episode delivered 892,000 total viewers and 386,000 adults 25-54 in Nielsen live+3 ratings.

“We could not be prouder of Killing Eve, or more pleased and gratified by the viewer response to this kick-ass thrill ride of a show,” said Sarah Barnett, president of BBC America. “From our first conversation with Phoebe, to casting Sandra and Jodie, this has been a joy every step of the way and we so appreciate the fan and critical response to this unforgettable first season. We can’t wait to share these final four episodes and are already looking ahead to season two.”
