Killing Eve will be back on our screens in the spring, and we could not be more excited.
BBC America has confirmed that the highly-anticipated second season will get underway on Sunday, April 7th at 8pm/7c.
Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer reprise their acclaimed performances as Eve (Oh), an MI6 operative, and psychopath assassin Villanelle (Comer) in this story of two women, bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act.
What's more, Killing Eve Season 2 will pick up in the immediate aftermath of Killing Eve Season 1 Episode 8.
Villanelle has disappeared, and Eve is left stunned, with no idea if the woman she stabbed is alive or dead. One thing is for sure:
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.
“Killing Eve is picking up exactly 36 heart-thumping seconds after the events of the season finale,” said Sarah Barnett, President of AMC Entertainment Networks.
“This new season is packed with superlative performances and is as twisty, subversive, darkly funny, nerve-wracking and pleasurable as our fans could desire.”
Along with returning stars Oh, Comer and Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter), new additions to the cast include Nina Sosanya (Good Omens) and Edward Bluemel (A Discovery of Witches) in series regular roles, with Julian Barratt (Mindhorn), Henry Lloyd-Hughes (Indian Summers) and Shannon Tarbet (Genius) set to guest star.
Killing Eve has been a roaring success for BBC America since it premiered last April.
It has been nominated for a Golden Globe®, and a Critics’ Choice Award, with Sandra Oh, nominated for Emmy®, Golden Globe®, Critics’ Choice and SAG® awards for her performance as Eve, and Jodie Comer nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award for her work as Villanelle.
The series finished its first season with an unbroken record of ratings growth in the key adults 25-54 and 18-49 demos – something no other show on television has accomplished in the history of Nielsen live+3 ratings.
The finale delivered series highs with 1.25 million viewers in live+3, up 86 percent from premiere, with 545,000 adults 25-54 and 378,000 adults 18-49, up 127 percent and 100 percent from premiere, respectively.
The season finale in May was also the #1 most social drama of the day.
