New Killing Eve series 3 trailer confirms Eve Polastri's survival

It also looks like Villanelle hasn't lost her penchant for dressing up in elaborate costumes...

Killing Eve's second series ended with rather a shocking moment - with Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) apparently shot dead by Villanelle (Jodie Comer).


Ending on such a bombshell ensured fans were left desperate for another season as soon as possible, and that third run is coming soon, with Suzanne Heathcote providing the scripts.

Of course it was always unlikely that Eve would actually be killed off, and a new trailer for the upcoming third run confirms that - with Oh returning in the lead role.

It appears that Villanelle is originally unaware of her rival's survival, however, with the trailer beginning with a voiceover from the assassin in which she muses, "I just had a really bad break-up. When I think about my ex, I realise I am so much happier now she's dead."

As well as featuring many returning faces, including Fiona Shaw's Carolyn and Kim Bodnia's Konstantin, the trailer poses several questions: how did Eve survive? How will Villanelle react to the news? What will happen when they come face to face again?

One thing that we know for sure is that it looks like Villanelle hasn't lost her penchant for dressing up in elaborate costumes - an early moment in the trailer sees her don a clown costume and terrify some children.

It certainly looks like being an intriguing third series...
