Episode 1 has been requested 864,000 times, adding to the 3.7 million who tuned in to watch the series opener on BBC One.
The box set for series 2 has also been requested 2.6 million times in the 36 hours since it was released.
The full second series of the Bafta-award winning series dropped on BBC iPlayer on Saturday evening – as Jodie Comer’s ‘Villanelle’ and Sandra Oh’s ‘Eve’ returned to our screens on BBC One.
BBC iPlayer data shows that 18,000 people have already finished the whole second series.
Charlotte Moore, BBC Director of Content, said: “We know people loved the first series of Killing Eve and so it’s no surprise audiences have flocked to series two. The first episode of the second series is already on track to be one of our biggest episodes ever and we expect it to keep on growing. And it’s amazing to see that 18,000 people haven’t been able to stop themselves from bingeing the whole second series!”
The first series of Killing Eve, which is also available on BBC iPlayer is still the BBC’s biggest ever box set, with 53 million requests since it first arrived in September last year. It has received a further 676,000 requests over the weekend.
