New Episode Of Killing Eve Season Three Is Now On BBC iPlayer

Many, many months have passed since we left Killing Eve's titular hero lying on the floor in Rome after season two aired last spring.

But now Sandra Oh will return as her M15 agent Eve Polastri to let us know what happened after that tense stand-off with Villanelle (Jodie Comer), as the first episode of season three has just been added to BBC iPlayer for your viewing pleasure.

While American viewers were treated to the new series yesterday, the UK has now followed suit, with the first of eight episodes having been added to BBC iPlayer today.

Each new episode will arrive on the iPlayer at 6am on Monday mornings going forward - so if you're really keen, you can bring your Monday alarm forward a bit and start the next seven weeks on a good foot.

The new series was originally supposed to hit screens in the US on 26 April before being rolled out across the pond this summer.

However, those dates were all brought forward as creators couldn't wait for fans to see it - literally.

Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios, told Deadline: "We know how adored this series is and we know how keen people are for great content right now.

"This season of Killing Eve digs deep psychologically, and with actors like Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw the results are nothing short of astonishing. We literally couldn't wait for fans to see it."

Given that many of us are all cooped up at home, this really could not have been a better decision.

For season three, Suzanne Heathcote - who previously worked on Fear the Walking Dead - has taken over from Emerald Fennell as lead writer and executive producer.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who wrote the first season and is an executive producer, said: "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."

Sarah Barnett also said in the lead-up to series three: "How could we not have massive confidence in Killing Eve? It has won big in every major award show and is the highest growing show on US television for six years.

"The reason for this series' emphatic embrace is the brilliant women who breathed it into being: Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Emerald Fennell, Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Fiona Shaw and it's fairy godmother, executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle.

"Season three lead writer Suzanne Heathcote takes Eve, Villanelle and Carolyn to places more thrilling, twisted and surprising than ever. Our addicted fans will not be disappointed."
