Killing Eve will arrive on iPlayer, in full, on September 15th

Killing Eve has set its UK release date, at long last. The assassin thriller, penned by Fleabag and Crashing‘s Phoebe Waller-Bridge, will debut on BBC One on September 15th at 9.15pm. After that premiere has broadcast, all eight episodes will appear on BBC iPlayer as a box set.

Killing Eve garnered much hype when it aired in the USA on BBC America, so it’s well worth marking this date in your calendar and preparing for a bloodbath of a binge-watch.

And if you’re wondering what the story is all about, the Beeb’s press bumf tells us this:

“Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) is Eve, a bored MI5 security officer whose desk job does not fulfil her fantasies of being a spy. Jodie Comer (Doctor Foster) is Villanelle, a fearsome assassin clinging to the luxuries her violent job affords her. When Eve is tasked with tracking down Villanelle before she can strike again, the two women are thrown into a cat-and-mouse game that turns the traditional spy-thriller on its head.

“Heading up an ensemble cast, the pair are joined by Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter) as Carolyn Martens, David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral) as Eve’s colleague Bill, and Kim Bodnia (The Bridge) as Konstantin. Further casting includes Darren Boyd (Fortitude) as Frank Haleton, Sean Delaney (Midsomer Murders) as Kenny Stowton, Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Downward Dog) as Elena Felton, and Owen McDonnell (Paula) as Niko.”

That date again is September 15th. We’re really looking forward to this one…
