Hold the phone guys, we now know when Killing Eve season two is going to air. Drumroll please the hotly-anticipated series will be returning to our screens on June 8 at 9.15pm on BBC1. (Yes, that’s not long at all! And no, we can’t contain our excitement!)

Best of all, just like last year, the whole series will be able to stream on BBC iPlayer immediately. And it's guaranteed to be popular, as BBC executive Charlotte Moore revealed during the launch for the second season there had been more than 49 million download requests for the first run (yep, more than any other programme).

The second series will have a lot of living up to do, after creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge and co swept up at the TV Baftas, winning three awards for best drama series, best actress (Jodie Comer as Villianelle) and best supporting actress (Fiona Shaw as Carolyn Martens).

When is Killing Eve season 2 on in the UK?

The same as last year, UK viewers have had to wait sliiightly longer for the drama, which retruns on June 8 at 9.15pm (on BBC1). Killing Eve was shown in America from April 7 on BBC America. Viewers in Australia and New Zealand have already started watching the second series, too.

How do I watch Killing Eve season two?

Either on BBC1 on Saturdays at 9.15pm - or you will be able to binge watch the whole thing on BBC iPlayer. Hurrah!

Is there a trailer for Killing Eve season two?

Yes, there been a couple of American trailers - but the BBC have treated UK fans to their own separate trailer, which you can watch below.

What happened in the Killing Eve season one finale?

Spoiler alert: obviously. In the last episode of season one - entitled God, I’m Tired - Villanelle kidnaps Konstantin’s daughter (in return for the cash and passport Eve found in Anna’s apartment). Konstantin is shot - then, crucially, Eve is fired. But Eve still can’t get enough and follows Villanelle back to her apartment. It looks like they’re going to hook up - until Eve stabs the assassin.

Who is in the cast of Killing Eve?

Jodie Comer will return as Villanelle, and Sandra Oh will continue in her role as Eve. Owen McDonnell will continue to play Eve’s husband Niko Polastri.

Fiona Shaw is also back for series two as MI6 boss Carolyn Martens, with Sean Delaney as her son/employee Kenny Stowton.

Last Tango in Halifax star Nina Sosanya joins the cast as MI6 agent Jess, and Edward Bluemel also joins the MI6 team as a character called Hugo. The Mighty Boosh actor Julian Barratt will play a character called Julian, and Adrian Scarborough is set to play a character called Raymond.

How many episodes are in season two?

There are eight episodes in season two, just like there was in season one. They’re all titled (in order!) Do You Know How to Dispose of a Body?, Nice and Neat, The Hungry Caterpillar, The Hungry Caterpillar, Desperate Times, Smell Ya Later, I Hope You Like Missionary!, Wide Awake and You're Mine.

Will there be a Killing Eve season three?

Yes! It’s already been commissioned, even before the second season got to air. President of Entertainment Networks for AMC Networks Sarah Barnett told BBC America why the decision to renew Killing Eve was taken, saying, ‘We love having this show and the brilliant Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw on our networks. Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Emerald Fennell have delivered two addictively entertaining seasons (and) as we did last year, we’re renewing Killing Eve right out of the gate. Now with Suzanne Heathcote as lead writer, as a sign of confidence – we adore this show as much as our fans do. Killing Eve doesn’t do anything in a templated way; we love giving opportunity to three genius women to make their mark.'

Sandra Oh Jodie Comer Killing Eve

Eve and Villanelle's first meeting wasn't like your typical dinner party. Their power dynamic all turned a bit sour when Villianelle brought a knife to Eve's neck and pushed her against the fridge. Casual.
