Killing Eve has had some great talent attached to it over the years, with Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge working as the head writer on the first season of the show, and Oscar-nominated Emerald Fennell writing the second season.

Suzanne Heathcote took over for the third run and finally Laura Neal will write the final instalment.

This follows the show's tradition of having a new head writer each season.

"Thank you to all the fans who’ve supported us throughout and come along for the ride.

"Although all good things come to an end, it’s not over yet. We aim to make this series one to remember!"

Season 4 of Killing Eve will air on BBC One next year. You can currently watch series 1-3 on BBC iPlayer
