Tv Season Info

Killing Eve centers on two women; Eve is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn't fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.

All Critics (54) | Top Critics (23)

It's a surprisingly fresh, taut and entertaining take on a thoroughly durable genre.

Killing Eve is subversive at its most basic level, taking the classic good-guy-chases-villain template and placing two women in the primary roles.

Killing Eve is a funny, witty, bright show about a hilarious, soulless maniac who waxes people to pop music. It feels like an upper, but somehow, it didn't trigger my conscience.

Killing Eve is a helluva good time, it's already more interesting than many of its genre peers, and the first season illustrates a self-awareness essential for its survival. The show may follow a formula, but there's nothing routine about it.

[Sandra] Oh brings the same blend of determination and exasperation that made her Dr. Christina Yang the heart and soul of "Grey's." Waller-Bridge's killer dialogue serves Oh and her opponent, Jodie Comer, well.

This seductive thriller with a murderous heart has a great cast and brutal antihero. What's not to like?
