Well, in some good news, the people behind the incredible Killing Eve are bringing forward the release date for its third season.

ABC, who broadcasts the show in Australia, has announced it will air the latest instalment from April 13.

It will be available on iView at the same time as it premieres in the US before it gets broadcast on regular TV on Sunday, April 19 at 9.30pm.

The eight-part series, which was created by Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge, was originally set to hit screens in the US on 26 April and June or July for the UK.

"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."

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

The trailer and pictures that have been officially released confirm what we were all hoping and praying - Eve ain't dead.

Another thing we 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."

If you need a little self-isolation pick me up, the latest season will not be the last of Killing Eve. The show was renewed for a fourth season in January, and the smart money says we can expect that to be released in the US in April 2021.

Hopefully that means it will land in Australia around the same time.
