If you’re a fan of spy shows, you probably have the same issue as us: It gets tiring watching the same hypermasculine, martini-drinking leading man every time. Thankfully, BBC's newest spy show, Killing Eve, has the fierce female leads we've been lacking.

Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Fiona Shaw, Jodie Comer, Sandra Oh, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Sally Woodward Gentle of BBC America's 'Killing Eve' pose for a portrait during the 2018 Winter TCA Tour at Langham Hotel on January 12, 2018 in Pasadena, California © Getty Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Fiona Shaw, Jodie Comer, Sandra Oh, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Sally Woodward Gentle of BBC America's 'Killing Eve' pose for a portrait during the 2018 Winter TCA Tour at Langham Hotel on January 12, 2018 in Pasadena, California

Eve, played by Sandra Oh, is a somewhat accidental secret agent who becomes obsessed with stopping a highly trained and emotionally disruptive female assassin (Jodie Comer). Before she can stop herself, Eve ends up in a heart-pounding, high-wire act of lethal consequence.

Executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle, writer/showrunner/executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and actors Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and Fiona Shaw of 'Killing Eve' speak onstage during the BBC America portion of the 2018 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena on January 12, 2018 in Pasadena, California © Getty Executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle, writer/showrunner/executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and actors Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and Fiona Shaw of 'Killing Eve' speak onstage during the BBC America portion of the 2018 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena on January 12, 2018 in Pasadena, California

Killing Eve is dark and smart and turns the male-dominated genre on its head.
