Our Favorite Psychopath, Villanelle, Is Back In The New Trailer For Killing Eve Series Two

The long-awaited second series of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s thriller will return on April 7.

Killing Eve will return for its highly-anticipated second season on April 7 at 8 pm on BBC America. The series will see Sandra Oh, who scooped the best actress award for the series at the Golden Globes, reprise her role as MI6 operative Eve. While Jodie Comer will return as psychopath assassin Villanelle in the story of two women, bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act.

The trailer hints at a possible romance between the two protagonists whose twisted cat and mouse relationship kept viewers hooked throughout the first series.

The obsession between the two is foreshadowed by Eve’s boss, Carolyn Martens (Fiona Shaw) questioning Eve and Villanelle’s complicated relationship as she asks “Why are you and Villanelle so interested in each other?

Annoyingly, BBC One hasn’t announced when the series will be shown in the UK. But BBC director of content Charlotte Moore confirmed during the Steve Hewlett Memorial Lecture back in October that fans won’t have to wait “quite so long” as they did for the first series, which arrived on UK screens six months after its BBC America debut.

Sarah Barnett, President of AMC Entertainment Networks said the second series will pick up where the series one finale left off. Villanelle has disappeared, and Eve has no idea if the woman she stabbed is alive or dead. With both of them in deep trouble, Eve has to find Villanelle before someone else does… but unfortunately, she’s not the only person looking for her.

She said:

Killing Eve is picking up exactly 36 heart-thumping seconds after the events of the season finale. “This new season is packed with superlative performances and is as twisty, subversive, darkly funny, nerve-wracking and pleasurable as our fans could desire.”

Roll on April!
