Killing Eve finally gets a BBC premiere date

We frankly can't wait for Killing Eve - we mean, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Sandra Oh and psychopathic assassins... what's not to love?

While the good folks over the pond have already seen the series, us poor folks in the UK have had to wait for what feels like a million years to see it.

Well, wait no longer (almost), as the new BBC series has finally landed an air date, and it's incredibly soon - September 15, in fact.



Even better though, the entire series will drop on BBC Three iPlayer on that date. Well, we suppose that sort of makes up for the wait.

The BBC show was renewed for a second season even before the show premiered in the US, so the broadcaster seems pretty confident in it.

Still, it seems pretty justified, especially as Killing Eve currently holds a 97% score on Rotten Tomatoes, so we imagine it's going to be pretty good.

The show is an adaptation of the Villanelle novels, and centres around the cat and mouse game between MI5 Officer Eve Polastri (Grey's Anatomy's Sandra Oh) and a serial killer (Doctor Foster's Jodie Comer). The series is written by Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Earlier this year, Oh opened-up about the lack of roles she got offered after leaving Grey's Anatomy, explaining: "I can talk about the things that didn't come my way that I think should come my way, but it's just like - it's a f**kin' waste of time."

She also admitted to being shocked after landing the lead in Killing Eve after years of being stereotyped, adding: "It's like, 'Oh, it's so easy! They just called you!' Right? In a way, yes, that's true. But in another way, it took 30 years to get this call."

Killing Eve will premiere in the UK on September 15.
