The news was shared on the official Twitter account for the show, revealing the new season will drop at 9pm on Sunday, April 12 on BBC America and AMC.
That’s two weeks before it was originally intended!
Check it out:
The end of season two saw a lot of things, but mainly Sandra Oh’s Eve being left for dead after Villanelle shot her in Rome.
It was your classic cliffhanger and by all accounts, unless season three is only one episode long or takes a major turn, surely she’s going to survive.
The shooting came after some kind of admission of love from Villanelle who told Eve “You love me. I love you, I do. You’re mine. You are. You are mine.”
And now we’re all desperate to see what happens in Killing Eve season 3.
Previously we were told to expect the new season later this year, though exactly when was a mystery.
Not much is known about season three, though it will be written by Suzanne Heathcote, who previously worked on Fear the Walking dead.
Season two was helmed by Emerald Fennell and before her, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who shared her excitement for season three, writing:
“I’m very excited that the Killing Eve baton is being passed onto another incredible writer for season three. We can sleep soundly knowing these characters are safe in Suzanne Heathcote’s hilariously murderous hands.”
Meanwhile, two actors from The Crown will be joining the cast, in the form of Dame Harriet Walter and Danny Sapani. Very nice.
Season three is expected to drop on the iPlayer in the UK after it has been shown in full in the US on BBC America – annoying but under the circumstances I’ll take it.
