Razor-sharp spy-thriller Killing Eve is returning to TV screens just in time to relieve the lockdown boredom – read on to find out how to stream season 3 from anywhere in the world.
Based on the Villanelle novels by Luke Jennings – the show has been a massive success worldwide, thanks to stand-out performances from Sandra Oh (Grey's Anatomy) and Jodie Comer (My Mad Fat Diary), its modern and subversive plot, and it's super-smart dialogue provided by Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
First premiering in 2018, the show follows Eve Polastri (Oh), an MI5 intelligence operative who has been given the mission of capturing psychopathic assassin Villanelle (Comer); as the chase has progressed, the two have developed a mutual obsession. Fans of the show have been left on tenterhooks after season 2 ended on a major cliffhanger with fans questioning what happened to Polastri.
While it's fair to say that season 3's reviews haven't so far been quite as sparkling as the praise dished out to Killing Eve's previous seasons, if you've followed the show this far you'll nevertheless be itching to see how the story unfolds.
