Neal, whose previous writing credits include “Sex Education” and “Secret Diary of a Call Girl,” will serve as writer and executive producer on the fourth season of the spy drama, which was picked up last month. Season 4 will go into production later this year.
“Killing Eve smashes television tropes in every way, both on the screen and behind it,” said Sarah Barnett, President, AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios. “We have a remarkable squad of ferociously smart women writers passing the baton to each other on this show, aligned around a coherent vision but bringing it to life with their own specific sparkle and brilliance. Laura Neal is the latest incredible leader of the pack on Killing Eve.
