Great entertainment is often about escape, and there is no better way to escape feelings of isolation or boredom than with the thrill of a spy chasing a hitwoman around the world. Killing Eve delivers exceptional entertainment with a show that is far from typical or predictable. It already has two seasons to catch up on, and a brand new third season that is premiering now. That makes Killing Eve the perfect choice to binge and make it your latest obsession. Here's all you need to watch Killing Eve online & without cable.

What is Killing Eve

If you aren't already in the know, Killing Eve is a TV series that mixes spies with dark comedy to produce a special blend of tension and laughter. The show is based upon writing by author Luke Jennings, who created the Villanelle series back in 2014. Villanelle is a codename for a hitwoman named Oksana Astankova, and she pursues, and is pursued by, MI6 agent Eve Polastri. Killing Eve is available to watch on BBC American and AMC in the United States and BBC iPlayer in the U.K.

Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer star in this exciting series, playing Eve Polastri and Villanelle respectively. These two are the heart and soul of the show, and the ways they portray their focus, obsession and attraction towards one another is mesmerizing. Other than Carolyn Martens, an MI6 chief played by Fiona Shaw, expect a mostly rotating cast of characters in a series where no one is safe, or off limits.

Will there be a fourth season of Killing Eve ?

Yes, according to Entertainment Weekly, BBC America has renewed Killing Eve for a fourth season. The novel series on which the TV show is based had three books, Codename Villanelle, Killing Eve ; No Tomorrow, and Killing Eve : Endgame. The TV series has plenty of room to create their own stories, so there is no clear endpoint in sight.

Killing Eve has broken ground in many areas. The show has two strong female leads, and they blend a direct obsession with outdoing the other with an underlying curiosity and desire towards each other. Killing Eve also has a new woman head writer for each new season, with Suzanne Heathcote taking over for Emerald Fennell and Phoebe Waller-Bridge in season three. Killing Eve has a formula that can keep it fresh and different with each new set of episodes.

How to watch Killing Eve from anywhere, even outside of the United States

Villanelle can't be bound by borders, and neither should you. Killing Eve is a popular exciting show the world over, but live streaming on U.S. services isn't available in some countries. That could mean that you have limited options to see Killing Eve live and online. That's because streaming services often block their feeds if you're not in America. However, your streaming subscriptions don't have to get stopped at Customs.

One way to get things working like you are used to is by using a VPN, which is short for "Virtual Private Network". It sends your internet traffic from far away through a specific set of servers, then pops it back into the United States. It can also give you security and peace of mind on open WiFi connections, because a VPN protects you against snoopers on any network.
