When is Killing Eve expected to air in the UK?

Unfortunately for British fans it could come months after the US release, not the initial days or weeks we were hoping for.

The Guardian reports that a spokesperson for the BBC has explained that Killing Eve will be delayed in order to host all eight episodes on iPlayer at the same time.

“BBC America are playing it out in weekly episodes,” they said.

“This means we have to wait until BBC America have premiered all of the weekly episodes – which as commissioning broadcaster they are entitled to do – 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.”
