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…
