The cat and mouse chase continues! Sandra Oh's Killing Eve will be back on your screen two weeks sooner than originally scheduled. The season three trailer just dropped today and there is tons in store.
According to Deadline, the BBC drama will return on April 12 rather than the original date of April 26.
The shift was done with the interest of keen viewers in mind, as well as the excitement from the network to release Eve and Villanelle's next adventure.
Deadline writes that Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios, released a statement to viewers.
“We know how adored this series is and we know how keen people are for great content right now,” Barnett said. “This season of Killing Eve digs deep psychologically, and with actors like Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw the results are nothing short of astonishing. We literally couldn’t wait for fans to see it.”
BBC America also announced the new release date on the YouTube video with the trailer for season three.
The trailer opens on Villanelle (played by Jodie Comer) dressed up in a clown costume, which hints at Eve (Sandra Oh) quite literally making a clown out of her assassin.
Villanelle proclaims, "I am so much happier now she's dead. I am moving up in the world."
But after a bunch of shots of various characters screaming including both Eve and Villanelle, the plot quickly changes. Eve isn't as dead as Villanelle once thought.

Now, Deadline confirms that a fourth season is coming too, which will continue "the story of two women with brutal pasts, addicted to each other but now trying desperately to live their lives without their drug of choice."
The first two seasons of the spy thriller series followed the two women who develop a relationship they never expected.
Eve is a British intelligence investigator tasked to find and capture assassin Villanelle. But the tables turn when Villanelle ends up developing an obsession with her hunter, and in turn, Eve develops obsessive feelings as well.
The cat and mouse chase ends up turning a mission to kill each other into one of passion and romantic interest.
Killing Eve first premiered in 2018 and was Oh's first lead role after leaving Grey's Anatomy as Cristina Yang in 2014.
The Ottawa born actress will soon havecalled The Chair which comes from the creators of Game of Thrones. She will executive produce and star in it, using experience she has as co-executive producer of Killing Eve.
