Killing Eve

Story by Jack Foley

THE third series of Killing Eve will be available to stream in the UK exclusively on BBC iPlayer from Monday, April 13, 2020 – the day after it launches on BBC America.

Episodes will drop weekly and be available to stream every Monday from 6am. Killing Eve will air on BBC One on Sundays at 9pm, starting from Sunday, April 19.

Killing Eve is BBC iPlayer’s biggest non-continuous drama programme of all-time – with nearly 110m requests to view both series one and two to date. The award-winning hit show stars Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw and is based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings. It is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd for BBC America and distributed by Endeavor Content.

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content, said: “The fierce women of multi-award-winning Killing Eve are returning exclusively to BBC iPlayer and BBC One once again, to entertain the nation with more explosive action and breath-taking cliff-hangers. I promise you that series three of this unmissable drama has been worth the wait!”

The third series continues the compelling cat and mouse story of two women with brutal pasts now trying desperately to live their lives without the other. For Villanelle (Comer), the assassin without a job, Eve (Oh) is dead.

As for Eve, the ex-MI6 operative is hiding in plain sight, hoping that Villanelle will never find her. All seems fine until a shocking death sets them on a collision course yet again. The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family and allegiances. And perhaps a share of their souls.

Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Fiona Shaw, Kim Bodnia, Sean Delaney and Owen McDonnell return with new cast additions including Dame Harriet Walter (Succession), Danny Sapani (Harlots), Gemma Whelan (Game Of Thrones), Camille Cottin (Call My Agent), Steve Pemberton (Inside No. 9), Raj Bajaj (A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding), Turlough Convery (Ready Player One), Pedja Bjelac (Harry Potter) and Evgenia Dodina (One Week And A Day).

The BBC has also acquired the fourth series of Killing Eve, which will see Laura Neal as lead writer and will be produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd.

Series one and two of Killing Eve are available to watch now exclusively via BBC iPlayer.
