Killing Eve Season Two Will Be Released In The UK Next Month
*** WARNING - SPOILERS FOR SEASON ONE OF KILLING EVE ***
The much-anticipated second season will be available to watch in full on iPlayer next month, while an exact TV schedule is expected to be announced shortly.
The second season will pick up exactly 36 seconds on from the dramatic closing scene of season one, in which Eve stabbed Villanelle - who then miraculously disappeared in typical Villanelle style.
In the trailer for the new season, we see Villanelle clambering out of a hospital bed before walking down a quiet suburban street wearing a cartoon-themed onesie - clutching the side where Eve stabbed her.
Later, she's rooting around a drawer in someone's kitchen looking for a kitchen knife.
"What for?" someone off-camera asks her.
"To stab you with," Villanelle replies with that trademark creepy smile.
Eve, meanwhile, is on the prowl for the elusive Villanelle, and is still receiving those creepy gifts - this time it's a floral funeral tribute spelling out her name.
"Why are you and Villanelle so interested in each other?" asks Eve's mysterious and potentially untrustworthy boss, Carolyn.
Phew #KillingEve series 2 is just as dark & twisty & starts 30 seconds after the end of series 1... No BBC TV start date revealed but full series on iPlayer in June. Also, Jodie Comer joked they'd all come (unplanned) as bridesmaids :point_down::heart: pic.twitter.com/0xKYyq1roA

That is one of the most interesting aspects of the show - the peculiar mutual fascination that Eve and Villanelle have for each other.
Another key reason the show has been so successful is because of the absolutely spellbinding performance of Jodie Comer, who plays the devilishly intriguing assassin - Villanelle.
The 26-year-old's captivating performance was recognised at the BAFTA TV awards on Sunday, where she scooped the best actress prize.
Her acceptance speech was the first time many viewers had heard her speak with her natural Scouse accent, which seems almost odd after seeing her effortlessly flick between accents from across Europe in the show.
Speaking at a Q&A, Comer revealed that the talent was nurtured in her youth, but she still has to work hard at them.
According to the Evening Standard, she said: "Growing up, me and my dad would always like, if there was an advert on the TV with a silly voice on, we'd always impersonate it around the house just joking around, and I think through doing that I've now got an ear for it.
"I mean, some are a lot harder than others, don't get me wrong, and you have to concentrate and work (on them).
"But for me it helps me because when I'm doing my own accent I find it harder to separate myself from the character, for some reason, I don't know why.
"But you also don't see a lot of Scousers on the telly so maybe we need to change that up a little bit."
I think I speak for all of us when I say we can't wait to see this particular Scouser back on our screens.
