When is the Killing Eve season three release date and will will it air in the UK?

As the show is made by BBC America, it will be released in the US before the UK.

It has been scheduled for release on AMC and BBC America on April 26 at 10pm. It is likely that it will be released in the UK around two months later - so we are looking at a possible June release date.

What happened at the end of Killing Eve series two?

The last series of Killing Eve ended with a huge cliffhanger, meaning viewers are clamouring to find out what happened next.

Vilanelle left Eve for dead in the final scene, but not before she had imagined the pair of them running away to Alaska together.

Executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle told The Hollywood Reporter: "We've sort of toyed with whether or not they'd do a Thelma and Louise, but then we go, well then what do they do?"

"I think Eve would very quickly realize that she had been deluding herself about the reality of what that life would actually be, and I personally don't think that Eve would ever go with her."
