Season three of Killing Eve will be airing on BBC America in the US on Sunday, April 12 at 9pm Eastern Standard Time.

The premiere has been brought forward by three weeks after AMC Networks Entertainment Group confirmed the news.

Killing Eve season three was originally supposed to air on April 26 but due to the coronavirus outbreak and a mass lockdown, AMC Networks decided to bring the premiere date forward.

The BBC iPlayer in the UK will be airing the show early as well with the first episode hitting the streaming platform on Monday, April 13.

Season three consists of eight episodes, like its predecessors and will be broadcast on a weekly basis.

Episodes of season three will be dropping on BBC iPlayer from 6am BST on Mondays in Britain.

This is the first time British and American broadcasts for Killing Eve have been so close together with the show airing Stateside before coming to the UK.

However, there will only be a matter of hours in the difference between transmission on both sides of the Atlantic.

Who is in the cast of Killing Eve season 3?

Grey’s Anatomy star Sandra Oh will be reprising her critically acclaimed role as the titular Eve Polastri.

Joining her will be Doctor Foster and Thirteen actress Jodie Comber as the bonkers hitwoman Villanelle.

Owen McDonnell is putting on the mantle of Eve’s long-suffering husband and secondary school teacher Niko Polastri again.

Season three will be picking up from the shocking cliff-hanger which saw Villanelle shoot Eve in the back and leave her for dead.

The show will see Villanelle continue her various hits as fans find out about Eve’s fate.

Also, the new series could address whether MI6 operative Hugo (Edward Bluemel) did get bumped off or made it out alive.

Perhaps season three could also look into the nefarious and shadowy syndicate known only as the Twelve.

Vanderpump Rules' Lala Kent Breaks Down in Tears Over Postponed Wedding Due to Coronavirus: 'It's Okay to Be Sad'

Even though she knows it’s for the best, Lala Kent is struggling with the reality of having to postpone her wedding.

The Vanderpump Rules star became emotional while discussing the decision to move her wedding with fiancé Randall Emmett from April to July in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

“I’m going through my planner and I put my wedding day on April 18 in pen because I didn’t think I would need to erase it at any point,” Kent said on the latest episode of their podcast Give Them Lala… with Randall. 

Kent broke down in tears as she recalled having to cancel all of the couple’s pre-wedding plans and honeymoon.

“It’s okay babe,” said Emmett, trying to comfort Kent. “It’s okay to be sad. I don’t think people realize how devastating it is for someone to have a wedding [canceled].”

While the couple acknowledged that others have been affected far worse by the fallout from the coronavirus, they admitted that they have been extra emotional during this time.

“I’ve watched you cry and you’ve seen me upset,” said Emmett. “We had a full-out cryfest a week ago when we first made the decisions [to postpone].”

“I don’t think anyone is prepared for this,” he added.

Earlier this month, the couple exclusively told PEOPLE that their nuptials are on hold until the summer.

“We have decided to move the date of our wedding to July given the unfortunate circumstances of what is going on,” the couple said in a statement. “We are obviously saddened by this but for the ultimate safety of our families and guests, we have made the decision to wait and see how everything progresses. Safety will always be our number one priority.”

On their podcast, the couple said that while this isn’t what they envisioned for their wedding day, they are still looking forward to getting married.

“No matter what day we choose, it’s still going to be [special],” said Kent.

“I love you and I know it’s sad. We love each other and we’re here and we’re safe. At the end of the day, a lot of people would pick this spot,” said Emmett.

The couple got engaged in September 2018 during a romantic trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

“This weekend has been an amazing one for the two of us! It was definitely the most romantic moment of my life. Every detail of the surprise was stunning and I’m still in shock,” Kent told PEOPLE after Emmett’s proposal.

Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

Home Before Dark: Is Home Before Dark based on a true story? The incredible story

Apple TV is going to be releasing a fresh new drama series called Home Before Dark, which sees a nine-year-old girl called Hilde Lisko (played by Broklynn Prince). Hilde and her family relocate to her journalist father Matthew’s hometown where she starts investigating a long-forgotten case. However, thanks to her unwavering determination, the child journalist goes on a mission to find out the truth.

The show will be coming out on Apple TV globally on April 3 with episodes dropping on a weekly basis.

A trailer for Home Before Dark shows Hilde and her family moving to a quiet town and upon arrival getting a warning from the sheriff not to make any trouble.

Things take a turn as Hilde starts to dig into what seems like a missing person’s case after she unearths an old videotape from the 80s, which features her father as a child.

Before long, Hilde is clashing with local law enforcement as she tries to find out what’s going on.

She also gets into trouble for skipping school to interview a murder suspect.

Home Before Dark makes for a gripping new drama which will have viewers hooked from the get-go.

  • For All Mankind Apple TV Plus release date: How many episodes?

Is Home Before Dark based on a true story?

Home Before Dark has been inspired by real-life child journalist Hilde Lysiak, who reported on murder which happened close to her home.

The series was written by Dana Fox and Dara Resnik, who have created a compelling 10-part drama.

However, only elements of the show are based on facts, such as Lysiak scooping her local newspaper on a murder story, her father quitting journalism and the schoolgirl’s determination to continue reporting the news.

Other aspects are creative licence but at its heart, Home Before Dark is about the pursuit of the truth.

Apple has already given Home Before Dark a renewal for season two in January, months before the show’s premiere.

In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, Home Before Dark composer Nathan Lanier spoke about working on the show.

Lanier said: “I think the core of the story is about uncovering the truth and lots of times in life there are lots of hidden truths.

“The music plays on this a lot, this steady ticking clock element that moves us through the story as we learn new things about our characters and the story.”

He continued: “Another element in terms of the show that we wanted to add – John and Dana and I talked about this early on – one of the principal themes of the show is empowering children and giving them a voice.

“We thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be great to literally give them a voice in the score?’ And so, we put together a children’s choir and had kids sing on the score.”

The musician went on to say the show wasn’t a children’s TV series per se but a programme featuring kids with a dark tone.

Hilde Lysiak is a 13-year-old child journalist and the creator of local news publication Orange Street News which she started in 2014.

But it was in 2016 when she reported on a murder case close to her home, which thrust her into the spotlight.

Lysiak pipped her local newspaper to the post by breaking the story first with the help of her father Matthew, who had formerly worked for the New York Daily News and would take her into the newsroom.

They also recorded a short video from the crime scene breaking the story as she vowed to continue and investigate further.

She has also given a speech a commencement speech at West Virginia University’s Reed College of Media about the future of journalism, becoming the youngest person America to do so.

In the speech she called on reporters to focus on fact-based reporting and not to allow personal politics to influence a story when covering the news.

She said: “That’s why I’m very careful to keep my political opinions to myself. I know that as soon as I lose the trust of my reader, I might as well find another job.

“But as long as I have that trust, I can keep going and so will you.”

GMB: Edwina Currie stuns fans as they spot ‘mystery man’ during interview ‘Who is that?’

Good Morning Britain has been working hard to bring original content and exclusive guests to the show since the UK’s lockdown. Every day, many panellists are brought onto the ITV show via video link, and today was no different. This morning saw hosts Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard speaking to Adrian Chiles and Edwina Currie.

However, in the middle of the interview, Ben and Kate noticed a man was descending the stairs which were situated behind Edwina.

Kate pointed out: “Edwina, I think a member of your household has just come downstairs.

“You might want to check they are dressed because they might not realise they’re going to be live to the nation!”

As everyone on the phone call laughed, Ben pried: “Who’s that lurking behind you?”

Edwina responded, chuckling: “That is former detective super intendant John Jones from the MET – who had his birthday yesterday.”

Positioning her head in front of the camera to cover him up, she added: “I’m kind of trying to hide him!”

“Yes, he looks very suspicious lurking behind you,” Ben added. “I’m assuming he was never undercover because he’s pretty useless so far!”

Kate pried further, demanding answers: “What is going on? Why is he there, Edwina?”

Prompting the former politician to respond: “I don’t think he understands what Skype is all about.”

Kate queried: “Does he think it’s a telephone call, and he’s strangely invisible?” to which the man shouted: “Yes!”

The hosts then pushed past this hiccup, and went back to Adrian – who clarified things for viewers, as he pointed out: “I don’t think Edwina mentioned: She’s actually married to that man!”

Fans of the show were beside themselves, as they spoke out on Twitter, with one writing: “Bloke coming down the stairs looking dishevelled in Edwina Currie’s house, hope it’s her husband #GMB.”
