Killing Eve creators announced a fourth and final season of the BBC drama back in January 2020, before the third season had even hit our television screens after meeting resounding success.
Season three wrapped up in May 2020, leaving fans of the show patiently waiting almost two years for the series' dramatic conclusion.
Finally, with season four right around the corner, we're ready to take a deep-dive into what fans can expect from Killing Eve's grand finale.
You can watch the teaser trailer for season four below:
When and where can I watch season four?
After dropping that highly intense teaser trailer back in December, Killing Eve creators announced that season four will officially begin on 27th February on BBC America and will air weekly.
However, UK fans will have to wait a day after our American counterparts to catch it, with it streaming on BBC iPlayer from 28th February.
Who is returning for Killing Eve season four?
Needless to say, Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer will return as Eve and Villanelle - we can't imagine the series without them.
Also returning are Fiona Shaw as MI6 agent Carolyn Martens, Gemma Whelan as Carolyn's daughter Geraldine, Kim Bodnia as Villanelle's father Konstantin, and Camille Cottin as high ranking member of The Twelve, Hélène.
Meanwhile, Jamie (Danny Sapani), Bear (Turlough Convery) and Audrey (Ayoola Smart) – are still alive so may make an appearance.
As for Eve's husband Niko (Owen McDonnell), he didn't die at the end of season three after looking like he'd met his maker. However, he did seem to have just about enough of Eve when the series wrapped.
Aside from returning characters, there will also be some new faces with The Tragedy of Macbeth's Robert Gilbert and actress Anjana Vasan cast as series regulars.
Gilbert will play ex-army lad Yusuf, who teams up with Eve on her latest mission of revenge while Vasan will play a new assassin-in-training named Pam.
What will happen this season?
In the final moments of season three, Villanelle and Eve found themselves on the Tower Bridge and we watched in suspense, half expecting one to push the other over the side.
In the end, the pair turned their backs to one another and slowly walked away, but not before one final glance back at each other. We were left to wonder whether this really was the end for the two women.
Looking to season four, a plot synopsis from BBC America reads: "Eve is on a revenge mission, while Villanelle has found a brand-new community in an attempt to prove she’s not a ‘monster.'
"This season follows our extraordinary women, each driven by passion, revenge and obsession, building towards a messy, nuanced and totally glorious series finale."
One thing is for certain, Eve and Villanelle's relationship will remain central to the story.
Who's writing the final season?
The first series was led by Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the second by The Crown's Emerald Fennell and the third by Suzanne Heathcote.
Following tradition, the series has enlisted the help of Sex Education writer Laura Neal for the fourth and final season.
Announcing Neal's involvement, AMC president Sarah Barnet said at the time: "Killing Eve smashes television tropes in every way, both on the screen and behind it.
"We have a remarkable squad of ferociously smart women writers passing the baton to each other on this show, aligned around a coherent vision but bringing it to life with their own specific sparkle and brilliance.
"Laura Neal is the latest incredible leader of the pack on Killing Eve."
Will there be a Killing Eve spin-off?
With the end in sight for the BBC thriller, some have speculated that a Killing Eve spin-off could be in the works.
Not to get your hopes up too much, but Dan McDermott, the president of original programming for AMC Networks, said in March 2021 that his team are "exploring potential extensions of this compelling universe."
Please don't play with us, Dan!
We're not sure where producers plan to go with a spin-off, but we'll just have to watch season four to find out!
Season four of Killing Eve will air on BBC One and BBC America on February 27.
