We all knew when Killing Eve would return for a second season it would be just as explosive and talked about as the first.
But one thing we’ve learnt after the first episode (Saturday, June 8th) is that the most talked about moments don’t necessarily come where you expect.
Here is everything you need to know about Villanelle’s pyjamas, which sent the internet on a search mission to find them!

In episode 1 of the second season, we see Villanelle (Jodie Comer) recovering from her violent interaction with Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh).
Whilst being treated in hospital, she donned a pair of fellow patient Gabriel’s comic book pyjamas.
As they were fit for a child, this obviously became a comic moment in the show. But the creators of Killing Eve could have never predicted that so many people would actually covet a pair just like Villanelle’s.
Are they real?
Most of the outfits seen on Killing Eve have been from designer brands. Think the iconic pink Molly Goddard dress!
But sadly for those looking for a pair of Villanelle’s pyjamas from season 2, they’ll have to look elsewhere as these pyjamas were custom made for the show.
But some lucky fans of the show are being treated to their own pair by the show’s creators, so here’s hoping if they’re popular enough they’ll release them to the general public!

Who made them?
In an interview with Elle, costume designer Charlotte Mitchell revealed how and why they made Villanelle’s comic book pyjamas from scratch.
Charlotte said the script intended for the pyjamas to be Spider-Man pyjamas, but issues with branding made it too difficult to use. So Charlotte created her own!
We looked around for fabric and found this amazing comic book fabric, which was a stretchy Lycra, so I could make them tighter and tighter. I added the red trimming on the sleeves.
