Killing Eve ‘could go on’ without stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer


The hit BBC Killing Eve series could continue without its main ladies.

The beloved drama with a dark edge has always followed the cat and mouse game between the obsessive Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) and the psychopathic assistant Villanelle (Jodie Comer).

However, showrunner for round three, Suzanne Heathcote has hinted that the series will not necessarily always focus on the characters.

Speaking to, Heathcote was interviewed without any of her lead actresses.

She replied, “It’s such a rich world and there are a lot of beloved characters.

“It’s both challenge and joy and so you know, who knows?

“Who knows where it will go, but it will be something completely unexpected. “

Could Killing Eve work without Jodie Comer?

Suzanne will not lead the already confirmed fourth round, because Sex Education producer Laura Neal will take the reins of the series.

Anticipating Neal’s tenure on the show, Heathcote said, “She’s so bright and has the most amazing ideas, her brain just goes to places no one else could imagine.

“I know season four is going to be great. “

Carolyn Martens (Fiona Shaw) has a new sworn enemy to Paul (Steve Pemberton)

The current race is focused on Eve reuniting former boss Carolyn Martens (Fiona Shaw) to find those responsible for the murder of their beloved Kenny Stowton (Sean Delaney).

Heathcote recently explained why it was right for fan favorite Kenny to meet his shocking death in the first episode of the season after fans were horrified at how brutally he was sent.

Other returnees for the third round include Kim Bodnia as old master of Villanelle Konstantin Vasiliev and Owen McDonnell as Eve’s separated husband Niko Polastri.
