Yesterday, we confirmed that Phoebe Waller-Bridge's latest project, Run, would be screening in the UAE one day after it debuts in the US. Now, we have news that the third season of Killing Eve will be available to screen on Wavo at the exact same time as it is shown stateside.

Wavo, OSN's streaming service, will be showing the brand new series from Monday, April 27. The popular show will air at 10pm (ET) on Sunday, April 26. Given the time difference, that means the show will be available to steam from 7am on Monday, April 27 here in the UAE – an episode for the most dedicated of fans to watch before work, perhaps?

A trailer for the new series dropped on Valentine's Day, but it tells us very little except to expect the return of Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer).

Fans were also teased with a series of stills, with the tweet: "You deserve this. xx." In the images, it is immediately clear that Eve has survived being shot by Villanelle at the end of the second series, as she appears in the promotional photos.

In one image, Villanelle is dressed as a clown, we also see the titular Eve in a kitchen, MI6 boss Carolyn Martens (Fiona Shaw) with a sports' fan's foam finger and the return of Konstantin (Kim Bodnia).

In a second tweet, Eve is seen out and about in the countryside and her husband, Niko Polastri (Owen McDonnell) appears to be with, or at least near, her in a separate shot; Villanelle is walking through a European city and Eve comes face to face with Carolyn.

Waller-Bridge was behind the first series of Killing Eve, adapting the series of novels by Luke Jennings. The second series was written by Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman) and the third has been helmed by Susanne Heathcote (See, Fear the Walking Dead).

"Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Emerald Fennell have delivered two addictively entertaining seasons," Sarah Barnett, the president of entertainment networks for AMC, said of the show in a statement. "As we did last year, we're renewing Killing Eve right out of the gate, now with Suzanne Heathcote as lead writer, as a sign of confidence – we adore this show as much as our fans do. Killing Eve doesn't do anything in a templated way; we love giving opportunity to three genius women to make their mark."
