If you were a fan of Killing Eve then you're going to want to tune in to Phoebe Waller-Bridge's newest series, Run.

The series is set to follow childhood sweethearts Ruby Richardson (Merritt Weaver) and Billy Johnson (Domhnall Gleeson) as they reunite to complete a pact they made 17 years earlier.

All that time ago, they had promised each other that if either of them texted the word 'RUN' and the other replied with the same word, they would drop everything and meet in New York, at Grand Central Station, and travel the world together.

True to their word, the pair do just that - but how will they both feel leaving their normal lives behind and ditching everything and everyone just like that?

And more importantly, what triggered Billy's message that sent the pair on this spontaneous journey?

Not only is Killing Eve creator Waller-Bridge an executive producer of the exciting new series, but the show also looks like it's set to be similarly fast paced and frantic, with an underpinned romantic tension that is difficult to ignore.

The show was first announced back in 2018, and drew further comparisons to the assassin drama as it branded itself a "badass romantic comedy thriller".

Killing Eve is coming to the UK this summer. (

Phoebe is also set to appear in the show herself as quirky character Laurel, who meets the pair on their travels.

Meanwhile, Mad Men's Rich Summer, The Good Wife's Archie Panjabi and Coroner's Fiona and Tamara Podemski will also feature.

Like Killing Eve, the show - also created by Fleabag's Vicky Jones - is set to debut on HBO before arriving on Sky two days later for UK fans.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is co-creator of the series (

And Vicky and Phoebe aren't the only *seriously* talented women working on the series, as Emmy-nominated Australian director Kate Dennis (who also worked on The Handmaid's Tale), has directed the pilot episode, too.

Run will air on Sky Comedy on 15th April and will be available on Now TV.
