An Emmy-nominated hit thriller show featuring Grey’s Anatomy star Sandra Oh is coming to Netflix. She played Cristina Yang on ABC’s venerable medical series for the first ten years of its run, leaving after season 10. But Oh soon found herself in the middle of another hot show, signing on to star alongside Jodie Comer in an acclaimed BBC thriller series, which itself ran for four seasons between 2018 and 2022.


Comer and Oh’s four-season cat-and-mouse game indeed made for compelling television, and now their exploits are headed to streaming, as all 32 episodes of Killing Eve come to Netflix in the US beginning on April 15 (via Collider).


Why Killing Eve Should Have Ended After Season 2

Starring Oh as an MI5 officer locked in a deadly dance with Comer’s cold-blooded assassin, Killing Eve landed with a bang in 2018, netting Oh an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, and another for Phoebe Waller-Bridge for Outstanding Writing For a Drama Series. Killing Eve season 2 went on to receive even more acclaim, as Comer won the Emmy for Lead Actress, while the show got a nomination for Outstanding Drama Series.


Those first two seasons of Killing Eve arguably should have been the whole of the show’s run, however, as the ongoing globe-trotting, erotic cat-and-mouse between Oh and Comer began wearing thin by season 3. Overall, the show holds a respectable 80% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but its reception took a nose-dive after the highs of the first two seasons, bottoming out in Killing Eve season 4, with a brutal 53% fresh rating.

While Comer and Oh remained strong throughout Killing Eve‘s run, its writing lost its sharpness in later seasons, as fresh ideas gave way to tired tropes. Waller-Bridge provided a steady hand in the show’s outstanding first season, establishing Comer’s Villanelle as a formidable villain, while introducing Oh’s Eve as a complex protagonist. Emerald Fennell took the reins as main writer for season 2, keeping up the show’s quality, but her departure marked the beginning of the end. Netflix’s subscribers can soon relive all of Killing Eve, but they might want to jump ship after season 2.
