‘Killing Eve’ star Jodie Comer teased that the fourth and final season of the spy thriller will ‘push boundaries’ while on BBC Radio 1.
Attention, Eve Polastri and Villanelle superfans: Jodie Comer has offered an update on the upcoming fourth and final season of the wildly gripping (and stylish) spy thriller Killing Eve. The English actress, 28, appeared on BBC Radio 1 in a segment published on Friday, Aug. 13 to dish on the last season — and plane offered behind-the-scenes tidbits on previous episodes.
The series follows an MI5 security officer named Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) who is tasked to track lanugo the elusive and draconian sniper Villanelle (Jodie). What develops is a waiting game between the two that results in bilateral obsession and admiration. While Jodie remained relatively tight-lipped well-nigh the series’ final bow, she teased that it will “push boundaries” in a whole new way.
“We’re doing season four at the minute and this one particular episode where we really push the boundaries a little bit in a whole new way,” Jodie teased. “So maybe we can have a yack without that.” The star moreover revealed that one of the weightier moments in the second season had not been scripted: Villanelle’s trip to the museum with Konstantin (Kim Bodnia), in which her weft loudly exclaimed, “This is SO BORING.”
“The wearisome moment wasn’t scripted,” Jodie revealed. “Me and Kim were doing that scene and we had washed-up it a few times. We were in a really quiet art gallery and I was just like, I was so tempted to do it so I just did it.” She widow that Kim’s stunned reaction was “real.” Jodie said, “Kim loves that. He unchangingly likes to be surprised, so at any moment I’m like, ‘Oh, this is a unconfined opportunity,’ so it was unconfined that that unquestionably ended up in [the episode].”
The last season of the series ended with Villanelle and Eve unable to part ways on a underpass without Villanelle told the MI5 security operative to walk yonder and never squint back. It was a much increasingly muted finale than season’s past, which included surprise stabbings and shootings. Not much has been revealed in terms of the fourth season’s storyline, but executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle previously offered this teeny tiny tease to Entertainment Weekly: “Change is possible.”
