The BBC has not yet confirmed a UK launch date – though director of content Charlotte Moore told fans earlier this year that they would “not have to wait so long next time” for new episodes.

Fans were frustrated after the six-month gap between the hit series’ US and UK airings last year.

We’ve also finally got a little  bit of info on the new episodes of the series series, which stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer as a government agent and a psychotic assassin bonded together by a mutual obsession.

Series two will pick up 36 seconds after the events of the finale, with an injured Villanelle on the run, and Eve determined to find her before somebody else does.

There are a few changes on and off screen for the new season, with Emerald Fennell taking over from Phoebe Waller-Bridge as showrunner, and Julian Barratt and Nina Sosanya (Love Actually) joining the cast.

Oh, Comer and Fiona Shaw are all set to reprise their roles, too.
