Killing Eve has been highly successful in both the United States and the United Kingdom, receiving critical acclaim for both the first and second series, particularly for its writing and the lead actresses’ performances. The first series had unbroken weekly ratings growth, among adults especially. It has received several accolades, including a Peabody Award and the British Academy Television Award for Best Drama Series. Both Oh and Comer have won multiple Best Actress awards for their roles, with Fiona Shaw winning one for Best Supporting Actress as Carolyn Martens.
By January 2020, Killing Eve had been renewed for both a third and a fourth season.
Bored with her protection guard role within the British intelligence agencies, Eve Polastri is overly interested with assassins, particularly female assassins, their psychologies and methods of killing. After brashly investigating behind-the-scenes in relation to a witness she is handling, she is fired from MI5 but recruited by a secret division within MI6 chasing an international assassin, to her delight. Dubbing the assassin Villanelle, Eve crosses paths with her and discovers that members within both their secret circles may be more connected than she is comfortable with, but forms an attraction and obsession for Villanelle that is more enthusiastically reciprocated; both women begin to focus less on their initial missions in order to desperately seek more about the other.
Sally Woodward Gentle, of Sid Gentle Films, optioned Luke Jennings’ Codename Villanelle in 2014, saying that “the notion of a female assassin was not unique,” but that Jennings’ take was “fresh, intelligent and tonally much bolder than others”, adding that she was particularly interested because “It wasn’t exploitative. We really enjoyed the character of Villanelle and the inventiveness of her kills, but we were particularly engaged with the mutual obsession between the women”. Jennings’ story began as a four-part novella published between 2014 and 2016. Following the stage success of Fleabag, Phoebe Waller-Bridge was recruited to write the show, which was then commissioned by BBC America in November 2016.
