There are few programmes which can confirm we are in fact in the golden age of television moreso than Killing Eve.

To mark the arrival of an impending season two to our screens over the coming weeks, show stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer arrived in contrasting ensembles at last night's premiere in Hollywood. Oh, whose rise to household name-dom has been coming for 15 years, won a Golden Globe for her role in the show's first season, opted for a plunging white suit, her signature style.

Comer, on the other hand, nabbed a BAFTA nomination for her role as a Russian assassin obsessed with the eponymous Eve, chose a strapless black midi dress with a V-shaped back embellished with colourful sequins by Victoria Beckham, accessorising with a pair of half moon earrings.

Irish actress Fiona Shaw, from Cork, also stars as MI6 boss said the sophomore season will bring "even more thrills" that its debut. "You wouldn’t have thought you could have many more but there are."

The female-led cast have been vocal in their appreciation and support for one another, especially as the show continues to grow in popularity and boost each actresses profile even more.

"‘I did have a moment last year at the Critics’ Choice Awards. I was with Phoebe, Sandra and Fiona and I was like, 'This is so f**king cool'. To be on set not just with women, but these women in particular - being encouraged by them, learning from them and laughing with them - it’s just special," Comer told Elle.
