The seductive cat-and-mouse game returns to Aotearoa, on demand just when we demand it most.
At a time when we need good TV more than ever before, BBC and TVNZ On Demand have performed an act of dazzling mercy by announcing the early release of the third season of Killing Eve. Take and eat; this is Sandra Oh’s blood, given for you for the forgiveness of sins.
The seductive cat-and-mouse game will continue with season three, and a fresh feel with British writer Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) coming aboard as lead writer and executive producer for the brand-new season.
The above trailer gives fans everything they need: a status update on the relationship between Eve and Villanelle and a slew of outrageous new outfits and disguises for Jodie Comer. The cliffhanger ending of the last season saw Sandra Oh’s Eve left for dead by Villanelle, and the first images of season three seem to hint that neither woman is doing great after the complicated, bloody ‘break-up’.
Twitter was understandably excited at the news, giving thanks for the worthy distraction at a moment when distraction is more valuable than ever.
The third season of Killing Eve will be available on TVNZ On Demand from April 13.
