Killing Eve - Season 2

While American Killing Eve fans have been enjoying weekly episodes of the cat-and-mouse espionage thriller’s second season since April, the wait here in the UK is enough to stoke up your inner Villanelle. But try and rein in those violent impulses – the delay is almost over, with the BBC at long last revealing its UK air date. It starts on BBC One on Saturday 8 June at 9.15pm.

Even better, the full series will once again arrive as a boxset on the iPlayer, so you can binge it all to your heart’s content.

The second season will continue the tangled web weaved between Sandra Oh’s spy Eve Polastri and Jodie Comer’s ruthless assassin Villanelle, a mutual obsession sure to spin off in twisted new ways in the latest set of episodes – especially since Season 1 ended SPOILER WARNING with Eve stabbing Villanelle. Ouch. While the show’s creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge has stayed on in a producer capacity, Season 2 features a new lead writer in Emerald Fennell – here’s hoping it can keep that sharp, witty, and subversive streak so inherent in Bridge’s writing.

Now to wait for details of the already-confirmed Series 3...
