On March 25, Netflix announced some of the best news we've heard this year: all four seasons of Killing Eve would be landing on the streaming platform soon. We're still in disbelief about this good news and are looking forward to binge-watching the complete series when it arrives on Netflix this April. If you're just as over the moon about this news as us at Netflix Life, you absolutely must continue reading to find out all the juicy deets about the show's upcoming Netflix release.

Killing Eve is hands down one of the best spy thrillers in TV history. If you're a die-hard fan like me, you probably agree and have watched the series too many times to count. It's okay. I'm just as guilty... It's such a good show! Well, except for the fourth season. How did that song go in Encanto? "We don't talk about Bruno no, no, no!" Well, we don't talk about Killing Eve season 4 either because it simply didn't happen.

Unlike many other licensed content on Netflix, this will be the spy thriller's first time on the streaming platform. Since the show's ending in April 2022, we have been patiently waiting for it to be added to our favorite streamer. It's been a long time coming, but Netflix has finally acquired streaming rights. So, are you ready to find out when exactly it will make its way to the streamer? Well, here you go!

When is Killing Eve coming to Netflix?

Drum roll, please! All four seasons of the popular British spy thriller series are set to arrive on Netflix on Monday, April 15, 2024. It's unclear what time the complete series will land on the streamer, but our guess is at 12:00 a.m. PT/3:00 a.m. ET since that's when Netflix usually releases new content on its platform. Now that you know when Killing Eve will come to Netflix, it's best that you clear your schedule for this day. There might be other new releases on Netflix on April 15, but Killing Eve should definitely be at the top of your watchlist. Those other shows can be watched on another day. I'm just saying.

We know that not everyone is familiar with this spy thriller, so we'll give you a little rundown on what the show is about, who stars in it, and more.

What is Killing Eve about?

Like many other TV shows, Killing Eve is based on a book. In fact, it's based on the Villanelle book series by British author Luke Jennings. It follows British Intelligence operative Eve Polastri, who is given the task of tracking down the psychopathic female assassin Villanelle, who works for a secret assassin organization called The Twelve. But what was supposed to be only another job assignment turns into something entirely different: a mutual obsession between the two that threatens to destroy both of their lives and what they've worked for. Throughout four seasons, viewers watch Eve and Villanelle go head-to-head in an intense game of cat and mouse. But you can't help but root for them to get together.

Grey's Anatomy star Sandra Oh plays the leading role of Eve Polastri. For her portrayal, she won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Drama and was nominated for three Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Thirteen actress Jodie Comer stars as the psychopathic female assassin Villanelle. She also won several prestigious awards for her acting work in the spy thriller, including the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Joining them in the cast are other talented actors such as Fiona Shaw, Kim Bodnia, Darren Boyd, Owen McDonnell, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, David Haig, Sean Delaney, and many others.

The show is rated TV-MA, meaning it's meant for mature, adult audiences only. It was given this maturity rating for sex, smoking, and graphic violence, which seems appropriate given the show's subject matter. As I mentioned earlier, I watched this show in its entirety multiple times, and I definitely wouldn't recommend watching it with younger kids around. It's not a kid-friendly show at all.

If you take a look at the season 1 trailer below, you'd understand why this show isn't appropriate for kids.

Killing Eve seasons 1 through 4 are slated to land on Netflix on April 15. Make sure to save the date!
