Killing Eve season 2 trailer reveals Villanelle’s obsession
The second season of Killing Eve is coming April 7, and to help tide you over, BBC America has released one final trailer, chocked full of all the tension and humor that’s become synonymous with the thriller. You can check it out in the post below!
Based on the novellas by Luke Jennings, BBCA’s Killing Eve centers on two women: Eve, a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade security services operative whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy, and Villanelle, an elegant, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.
The first season of Killing Eve capped with an unbroken record of weekly ratings growth in the key adults 25-54 and 18-49 demos, which has not been accomplished by another series on television in over a decade. Oh received an Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category for her role as Eve Polastri, with Phoebe Waller-Bridge nominated for Outstanding Writing for a Drame Series. The Television Critics Association named Killing Eve the Best New Show when the first season aired.
Damon Thomas has returned to direct the second season and will executive produce with Lisa Brühlmann and Francesca Gregorini also set to direct.
Killing Eve is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd and executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, and Emerald Fennell with Sandra Oh co-executive producing. Elinor Day serves as series producer.
The second season of Killing Eve kicks off on April 7.
