The wait is almost over: The third season of BBC America's buzzy female assassin drama Killing Eve will premiere this April.

Of course, we don't know exactly when this April and we sort of expected this news was coming, given that the show aired in roughly the same window during its first two seasons. (And the fact that the powers that be hinted as much when they announced the series Season 4 renewal earlier this year.) But, still. It's nice to know for sure. 

And, as the teaser trailer says: Love is worth the wait. 

Killing Eve has been a remarkable little series that could ever since it debuted back in 2018, steadily building buzz, grabbing awards and - most importantly - increasing its viewership season over season. Expectations are pretty high as it returns for its third - and we all have a lot of questions about how it will manage to continue its story. 

Season 2 concluded with assassin Villanelle shooting MI-5 agent Eve Polastri, meaning that both women have officially tried to kill one another at this point, a situation that will probably bring us back to what is basically status quo ante: The two chasing one another all over the globe, attempting to either flirt with, arrest or kill the other. (Or maybe Villanelle is big mad that Eve so openly rejected the idea of running away with her? Perhaps Eve isn't going to be able to handle the fact that she killed a man to save a Villanelle who chose to let her crush become a killer? There are a lot of possibilities, is what I'm saying.)

BBC America's teaser trailer doesn't give away much - it doesn't even contain any actual Season 3 footage. Instead, it's a mix of iconic items from the series' first two seasons: Lipstick with a blade hidden inside, the bright pink anime pig costume head that Villanelle wears to commit one of her most brutal murders, a cake with messy pink icing. All underscored by the sound of Jodie Comer's patented Villainelle laugh. 

"Not. Long. Now," it promises, which you could take as a promise or a threat, depending on how you feel about the show and the characters in it.
