The BBC has finally set an air date for Killing Eve.

Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s critically-acclaimed new series will premiere on Saturday September 15th at 9:15pm on BBC One. 

It will continue to air in that time slot every week for the entirety of its eight episode run but if you do fancy a binge, all of them will become available to stream on BBC iPlayer immediately after the end of this first episode.

The show serves as a loose adaptation of British author Luke Jennings's 2018 novel Codename Villanelle, which is in turn a compilation of the four e-book novellas he published between 2014-2016.

We follow bored MI5 desk agent Eve Polastri (Grey’s Anatomy‘s Sandra Oh) as she’s thrown into a brilliantly tense game of cat-and-mouse with psychopathic Russian assassin Villanelle (Doctor Foster's Jodie Comer). 

Killing Eve was first on broadcast on BBC America from 8th April to 27th May where it received rave reviews, it currently stands at a very impressive 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, with particular praise directed at Oh and Comer’s performances as well as Bridge’s writing.
