Killing Eve, the buzzy little murder drama that could, will be back on our screens in just a few short months, and we can’t wait to find out what’s next.

It’s almost here: Killing Eve, the buzzy little murder drama that’s won Golden Globes and Emmys for its female leads over the past two years, will be back for its third season this April.

Thank everything, right?

Season 3 will officially kick off on Sunday, April 26 at 10pm ET. The show will once again be aired on both BBC America and its parent network AMC, giving the little female-led assassin series that could its best chance at reaching a wider audience.

(Fun fact: Killing Eve is one of the few series that’s actually increased its audience year over year since its debut in 2018, a trend which is almost unheard of in this Peak TV era. Get it, ladies.)

Following the Season 2 finale, fans have once again been left waiting to find out what happens in the wake of a brutal cliffhanger – this time, Villanelle shot Eve and left her for dead. (Back in Season 1, it was Eve who stabbed Villanelle before watching the assassin flee.)

Now, it sounds as though both women are living something like separate lives. Sure, that may be because Villanelle thinks her attempt to kill Eve was successful and that her former crush/rival/target is really most sincerely dead. And Eve, for her part, may be in something like the MI-6 version of witness protection. But, still. We haven’t seen either of these women attempt to live lives without the other – or, perhaps more correctly, without their obsessions with one another – since the series started.

Of course, without even thinking about it, we know that these two will cross paths again eventually – it’s sort of the point of the show, after all – but it should certainly be interesting to see what they both do in the meantime. (Not to mention: How, exactly, Eve manages to survive her gunshot would. Villanelle doesn’t miss unless she wants to.)

Thankfully, we won’t have to wait that long to find out.

Next. It’s true: Jodie Comer’s performance on Killing Eve has no equal. dark

Killing Eve returns Sunday, April 26 at 10pm ET on BBC America. Mark your calendars and stay tuned to Culturess for all the latest news on the show.
