BBC One's Killing Eve will end with season four, which is expected to air next year.

But fans of the award-winning cat-and-mouse thriller starring Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh need not worry, as plans for spinoff series to extend the assassin and spy story are in the works, Variety reports.

"Killing Eve has been one of my greatest experiences and I look forward to diving back into Eve’s remarkable mind soon," Oh said of the news. "I'm so grateful for all cast and crew who have brought our story to life and to the fans who have joined us and will be back for our exciting and unpredictable fourth and final season."

Comer added: "Killing Eve has been the most extraordinary journey and one that I will be forever grateful for. Thank you to all the fans who’ve supported us throughout and come along for the ride. Although all good things come to an end, it’s not over yet. We aim to make this one to remember!"

Filming for season 4 was delayed due to the global pandemic, and is now due to commence in June. The final will consist of eight episodes.

Killing Eve is based on the Villanelle novels by Luke Jennings, following an MI6 agent hot on the pursuit of a Russian assassin (Comer) - although their relationship begins to blur the line of professionalism.

Fiona Shaw will be returning to series 4 as Carolyn Martens, along with her daughter Geraldine (Gemma Whelan), and fans are hoping to see Kim Bodnia back as Konstantin.

Killing Eve will conclude next year on BBC One.
