Killing Eve to Stream Sooner

TVNZ OnDemand will stream season three of Killing Eve from April 13, two weeks earlier than planned.

It follows US cable channel AMC’s decision to launch the hitwoman series ahead of schedule, to help fill the gap left by The Walking Dead ending prematurely amid so many viewers being confined to their homes because of COVID-19.

The publicity promises a “fresh feel” with British writer Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) signing on as lead writer and executive producer.

Killing Eve is the story of two women, bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act: Eve (Sandra Oh), an MI6 operative, and Villanelle (Jodie Comer), the beautiful, psychopathic assassin that she has been tasked to find. This third season continues 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 – each other. All seems fine until a shocking and personal death sets them on a collision course yet again.

“We know how adored this series is, and we know how keen people are for great content right now,” Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios 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.”

Here’s Digital Spy’s take on how the season may progress.

No word yet on a broadcast date. TVNZ 2 ran the previous season 9.30 Mondays, where it struggled to capitalise on its on-demand popularity, but this year has opted to fill the TWD slot with Grey’s Anatomy.

  1. Hope it’s being put on TVNZ 1 at 8.30 Fridays when Call the Midwife ends, where it’s rated higher.

  2. Being Eve will remain a TVNZ 2 property, Sheldon, just not a priority.
