The news of Villanelle, Eve et al's return was announced just one episode into the second season (for North American fans - it's still not out here yet) on the official Killing Eve Twitter account.

Sarah Barnett, President, Entertainment Networks for AMC Networks, confirmed the news fans had been hoping for.

In a statement to Metro, she said:

"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.

"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."

 

In the meantime, Irish fans who are waiting for season two don't have too long to go.
