As you’ve probably heard already (from us), the Killing Eve season three premiere has been pushed up two weeks early, airing April 12 at 9pm EST on BBC America. The KE Twitter page has already shared two character teaser trailers, for Eve and Villanelle.
What’s MI6 head honcho Carolyn Martens (Fiona Shaw) up to? We first see her in a bath, running a meeting from under bubbles. Eve (Sandra Oh) is a little caught off guard when walking into this, with Martens saying, “I have all my best thoughts in the bath.” Makes sense to us.

This clip reveals a new character, too. You may recognize Inside No. 9‘s Steve Pemberton at 00:11. He says to Martens, “I’ve heard you’ve been very naughty.” Again, completely unfazed, she replies, “Have I?”
It was previously announced in March, that Pemberton and six other actors are joining the KE roster. It’s not clear what exactly his role is in this cat and mouse chase, but he seems to be comfortable enough to razz Martens… and get away with it. As far as we know, earlier in the clip she threatens to have someone killed.
Let’s just say, you don’t want to get on her bad side.
And what about Eve’s on-again, off-again husband Niko (Owen McDonnell)? He got a shout out on Twitter, too:

He seems to have done the smartest thing out of everyone: just drive away.
When KE returns on April 12, you can look for returning cast members Sandra Oh as Eve, Jodie Comer as Villanelle, Kim Bodnia as Konstantin, Sean Delaney as Kenny, and the three actors highlighted above.
As well, there will be some new faces, including Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), Camille Cottin (Call My Agent), Evgenia Dodina (One Week and a Day), Predrag Bjelac (Harry Potter), Raj Bajaj (A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding) and Turlough Convery (Ready Player One).
