It was previously thought that the UK release date of the show come straight after the US premiere, but all is not quite as it seems.

Now, the BBC have confirmed the UK air date is "unlikely to be before early June".

As reported by The Guardian, a spokesperson for the BBC has explained that Killing Eve will be delayed in order to have all eight episodes on iPlayer at once for maximum binge-ability.

โ€œBBC America are playing it out in weekly episodes,โ€ they said.

โ€œThis means we have to wait until BBC America have premiered all of the weekly episodes โ€“ which as commissioning broadcaster they are entitled to do โ€“ before we can begin our transmission, otherwise we would be premiering episodes before them."

They added: "The decision to make it a box set was based around how we thought audiences would enjoy the programme. We are still experimenting with different release models and we know last time audiences really loved the fact we did this as a box set so they could binge.โ€
