News has finally arrived to confirm what many of us expected, that ‘Killing Eve’ season 4 has been delayed indefinitely.
Filming was initially expected to begin in August on track for the usual spring launch the following year. However, due to the fact that a key part of the show is the multiple European locations with lots of outdoor filming and lots of different countries, this is a show likely to be heavily effected by the pandemic.
In the best case scenario, they are able to film in the autumn/winter and make a summer 2021 release date, but even that seems unlikely as no shooting schedules were even in place.
Unfortunately, it is more likely they won’t shoot until early 2021, meaning an autumn/winter 2021 (or spring 2022) release may be more realistic, but anything could happen in this uncertain time.
The show itself may benefit from a break to rework the scripts, hopefully ensuring that Sandra Oh is much more central as Eve this season following the backlash to the all white writers room and Oh’s criticism of the usually all white cast for an Asian led show (and alps simply the middling reviews to a season 3 that barley featured its lead character).
Jodie Comer has also been at the centre of a storm recently as it was revealed she is dating a Donald Trump supporter, leaving her huge fan base devastated and many proclaiming this makes her hypocritical for positioning herself as an LGBTQ ally. Comer also had a movie delayed yesterday, as ‘The Last Duel’ was delayed almost a year to October 2021.
Hopefully this delay also means the scripts won’t be altered to accommodate the virus, and will allow for the very intimate scenes fans desperately want to see between ‘Villaneve’.
One thing is for certain, it is never dull being a Killing Eve fan.
