It may be a little while yet until we get to watch the third season of Killing Eve, but to keep our appetites whet the BBC has offered us a first look at the upcoming series.

Season 3 is coming to the UK this summer.

Season two left us with a lot of questions after a dramatic finale in which assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) shot Eve (Sandra Oh) and seemingly left her for dead following a tense stand-off in Rome.

While the pictures are clearly quite tantalising, they don't reveal much about what we can expect plot-wise from the upcoming series, which will air on BBC America in April before coming to BBC One in June or July.

Indeed, some unofficial snaps taken from filming at London's Liverpool Street Station potentially reveal more significant plot points from the new season - but don't go looking at those if you don't want any spoilers.

Villanelle has always been a master of disguise.

What we do know is that 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."

Hands up if you're exciting for season 3.

We also know this season will not be the last of Killing Eve - which should be a comfort to you if you decide to binge your way through the third season as soon as it is dropped on iPlayer.

The show was renewed for a fourth season last month, and the smart money says we can expect that to be released in the US in April 2021 and in the UK in June/July 2021.

Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios (joint-owners of BBC America) said: "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.

Looks like Eve hasn't been killed, surprise surprise.

"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."
