It is reported that filming on the fourth season of Killing Eve has been postponed indefinitely in the wake of the Covid-19 emergency.

US entertainment trade website Deadline.com, which first reported the story, says the plan was for filming to begin on the Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh-starring series in August, but a new start date will now have to be decided.

"The main reason for the delay is because Killing Eve is a jigsaw of European location shoots, many of which have been rendered difficult at this time due to the pandemic," it says.

Deadline adds that the delay "will almost certainly push back its premiere date in 2021".

A spokesperson for the hit series said: "Killing Eve shoots across multiple European locations. Due to the uncertainty of the world as a result of Covid-19, no shooting schedules for Killing Eve season four have been locked in at this point and there are various scenarios in play."
