Killing Eve Sets Season 2 Premiere Date

Yesterday was a good day for Killing Eve fans as BBC America has announced the premiere date for Season 2.  The critically acclaimed series will return April 7

The premiere date was announced via the network’s official Twitter. The announcement featured a short video of Eve (Sandra Oh) running her hands through her hair in slo-mo thought while a voice asks, “Why are you and Villanelle so interested in each other? What really happened in Paris?”

The thriller follows British intelligence agent Eve Polastri (Oh) in pursuit of psychopath assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer). Oh and Comer will reprise their roles as the mutually obsessed women. The second season will pick up right where the Season 1 finale left off — with Villanelle gone after being stabbed by Polastri.

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.”

The eight-episode season will feature new cast members including Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Shannon Tarbet, Nina Sosanya, Edward Bluemel and Julian Barratt.

Killing Eve return Sunday, April 7.
