It was made clear by AMC Networks in March 2021 that the fourth season will be the final installment of the series.

Dan McDermott, president of original programming for AMC Networks, talked about it in a press release. He said,

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.

What are the chances of Killing Eve Spinoff?

In the press release by AMC Networks, it was mentioned that

the company is working with partner Sid Gentle Films Ltd. to develop a number of potential spinoff ideas to extend the show’s iconic universe.

Furthermore, the lead writer of season 4 of the series also hinted at the spinoff at that time. Laura Neal told the media,

I think it’s the end of Killing Eve as we know it, but I wouldn’t be able to say whether it’s the end of the Killing Eve world. I’d love to see something else.

As of now, there are no release dates for the Killing Eve spinoff. However, Deadline confirmed in April 2022 that it is in its early stages of development. Not only this, it was reported that the spinoff will focus on Fiona Shaw’s character Carolyn Mertens’s life as a spy in the Soviet Union.

In the meantime, cast details for the spinoff of Killing Eve have not been revealed.
