Killing Eve

The release date for Killing Eve season three has been brought forward to get us through coronavirus lockdown. Here’s everything we know about the next step of the killer series. 

Ever since the BBC teased us with a teeny-tiny trailer in January, Killing Eve fans have been impatiently waiting for a first proper look at season three. Now, the BBC has shared the first full-length trailer, along with the announcement that the release date is being brought forward.

Just to very quickly recap: season two ended on a cliffhanger, with Villanelle (Jodie Comer) leaving Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) for dead. Since then, the show has won multiple awards, attracted critical acclaim around the world and been commissioned for two more seasons (details on Killing Eve season four are here). So something tells us that the dramatic final scene wasn’t the last we’re going to see of Eve.

On Valentine’s Day, Comer shared first-look photos of the season – and they were actually a little bit terrifying.

Villanelle is known for her flamboyant wardrobe (we all know and love that pink tulle dress) and her multiple disguises (remember the murderous little piggy in Amsterdam, anyone?). And it looks like Comer is continue to have fun with the makeup and wardrobe departments. The actor uploaded a before and after shot of filming, which showed her wearing a creepy clown disguise. She then pointed fans in the right direction to get more photos and another teaser trailer. 

She wrote: “Early makeup call for this clown. Before and after pics from shooting @killingeve season 3. I’ll let you decide which is which. Head over to our page for all the latest info on our new season, coming to you soon.”

Of course, we couldn’t click onto to the Killing Eve Instagram quick enough…

Alongside a full shot of Comer wearing the clown outfit, we can see that Eve is alive and well… chopping up meat in a kitchen. We also see the return of Fiona Shaw as Carolyn Martens and Kim Bodnia as Konstantin. All of our favourites are back and it’s going to be just as gripping and darkly hilarious as ever. 

Now, a full-length trailer has been shared. BBC America released the video along with the news that the UK release date has been brought forward to Monday 13 April (it was originally 26 April).

As you can see, Villanelle actually thinks that Eve is dead, and claims she is “moving up in the world”. When Konstantin tells her that Eve is alive, it looks like Villanelle returns to England to face her. There are plenty of screams, plenty of beautiful outfits and plenty of filming locations.

We. Cannot. Wait.

Killing Eve season 3 will premiere on BBC iPlayer in the UK at 6am on Monday 13 April.
