A new Killing Eve spin-off is reportedly in the works, which should satiate our hunger for captivating spy thriller and Jodie Comer's impeccable accents.

According to Deadline, BBC America and AMC Networks are in the early phases of development on the project, which will follow Fiona Shaw's cutthroat character, Carolyn, as she rises through the British Secret Service.

What will be the focus of the Killing Eve spin-off?

There have been hints of a Killing Eve spin-off in the past. In March 2021, Dan McDermott, AMC Networks' president of original programming, said, "We look forward to what is sure to be an unforgettable final season and to exploring potential extensions of this compelling universe."

However, Villanelle (Comer) and Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) are unlikely to return due to the show's new focus, but we can't rule them out completely at this point.

The show's co-writer Laura Neal told the Radio Times: “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.’”

When to expect the Killing Eve spin-off

Initial rumors about a follow-up came in the form of a Killing Eve film, with critics suggesting it could follow in the footsteps of Peaky Blinders — the BBC show ran for six seasons before it was announced that a Peaky Blinders film would follow — but this latest news has somewhat ruled out the production of a feature-length production, at least for the time being.

The Killing Eve spin-off series has yet to be greenlit, so it may be years before we see it on our televisions, but it gives fans of the program something to look forward to. Meanwhile, you may watch Killing Eve on BBC iPlayer as many times as you like.
