Season 3 of BBC America and AMC’s critically acclaimed series Killing Eve will debut two weeks earlier than planned as a treat for fans.

On Friday, March 27, the show’s Twitter page shared the good news along with a video. “Ahhhhhhhhhhh. #KillingEve returns two weeks early, Sunday, April 12 at 9pm on @BBCAmerica and @AMC_TV,” the caption reads. Originally, the show was set for an April 26 premiere date on both AMC and BBC America.

The video offers a look into what’s coming in the next chapter as psychopathic assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) goes on with living life believing ex-MI6 agent Eve (Sandra Oh) is dead after she shot her in Season 2. Meanwhile, Eve believes Villanelle will never find her, but it’s clear that won’t be the case.

Season 3 will see a “personal death” occur for either Eve or Villanelle that will set them on another collision course. The journey back to each other will cost them friends, family, and allegiances, including parts of their souls.
