Cancel your social life and jump on the bandwagon, as Twitter can't get enough of new BBC thriller, Killing Eve.

The show has been a huge hit over in the States, and it has now finally made its way to our tellies ready for an autumnal binge watch.

Killing Eve stars Jodie Comer as assassin Villanelle and Sandra Oh, who you will recognise as Grey's Anatomy's Cristina Yang, as Eve Polastri. There's also a trailer to give you a taste for what's in store.


Without giving too much away Eve is an MI5 agent trying to track down Villanelle in the thriller-comedy hybrid, which has been written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

It's based on Luke Jennings' Codename Villanelle novellas, and the critically acclaimed TV show has a 97 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Killing Eve is currently airing on BBC One at 9.15pm on Saturdays, but if you're too impatient to wait for a new episode each week, you can watch the series all in one sitting over on iPlayer.

The thriller has sent Twitter into meltdown as viewers heap on the praise for both the writers, producers, and the actors - there's even a trending hashtag.

"Two episodes into and it's brilliant. #PhoebeWallerBridge keeps writing incredible telly from a female perspective and @jodiecomer is a thoroughly believable psycho. It has grit, drama, wit and a excellent cast. This is what the @BBC is for," exclaimed one person.

And another declared: "Binged all of @KillingEve in one sitting. Incredible. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is such an exciting creative talent. In awe. Plus @IamSandraOh & @jodiecomer are proper, proper badass."

beyond brilliant, sublime acting - gripping storyline!"

"@KillingEve what a show! Well done to all involved. It's got it all drama, great acting, great storytelling and very funny in a dark way as well. More in the same vein (pardon the pun)," added a fourth.

If you have already finished the series, then you will be pleased to hear that a second season has been confirmed by the BBC, although there is no premier date just yet.
