The hit BBC assassin-drama starring Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh has been given an official air date for British audiences.

It's not long until Killing Eve series two hits our screens, as the new UK air date has been confirmed.

The hit BBC drama starring Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh was first teased back in February and premiered on BBC America in April.

Watch a trailer for the show above.

Since then, British fans have been desperate to find out when we can expect the second season of the BAFTA-winning series on this side of the pond.

Find out everything we need to know about it so far including its release date, cast and characters, plot and reactions here...

See the first trailer, which was revealed earlier this year:

When will Killing Eve air on UK TV?

The show aired on BBC America on 7 April 2019, and has now been confirmed to arrive in the UK on Saturday 8 June at 9.15pm.

As Radio Times reported, speaking at the Hewlett Memorial Lecture, the BBC’s director of content Charlotte Moore told fans they would “not have to wait so long next time”.

Who stars in Killing Eve season 2?

The second season of the hit show will of course witness the return of Sandra Oh as Eve Polastri and Jodie Comer as Villanelle.

The series also welcomes new MI5 recruits Hugo, who is played by Edward Blackwell and Jess, who is played by Nina Sosanya.

According to IMDb TV fans can also expect to see Mighty Boosh's Julian Barratt make an appearance in the first episode of the second season.

See the main cast members we know of starring in season 2 so far below:

Sandra Oh - Eve Polastri

Jodie Comer - Villanelle

Sean Delany - Kenny Stowton

Fiona Shaw - Carolyn Martens

Nina Sosanya - Jess

Edward Blackwell - Hugo

Susan Lynch - Anna

What can we expect to happen? *SPOILER ALERT*

Eve stabs Villanelle at the end of season one, and season 2 picks up from where it left off... well, literally 30 seconds after anyway.

As we all know by now, Villanelle recovers from her stabbing and the obsession between the pair continue as Eve is tasked with finding the Russian assassin.

However, as the latest teaser seems to confirm, Eve seems torn between her job and protecting Villanelle.

What are the reactions to Killing Eve season 2 so far?

The early reactions are in and so far, so good, but they warn us the season will be brutal and unexpected.

Chris Evangelista from Slashflim said: "Killing Eve is better than ever".

Brad Travers from Indie Wire says: "Season 2 tends to act a little more like Villanelle than Eve."

So, we've got teaser trailers, a release date (sort of), and the cast.

There's only one thing left... for it to hit our screens!
