Killing Eve season 2 trailer

The first trailer for Killing Eve season 2 has been released.

The new episodes will finally resolve the major cliffhanger that ended the first season, continuing the story between Sandra Oh’s MI5 officer Eve and psychopathic killer Villanelle (Jodie Comer).

The first season, co-written and executive produced by Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge, was widely praised by critics when it aired last year.

It became the second-biggest boxset to air on BBC iPlayer, with more than 40 million requests since it arrived on the streaming service.

Also set to return are Fiona Shaw, who plays Carolyn Martens, the head of the Russia Section at MI6 and Eve’s boss.

Last December, Comer confirmed filming had finished on the second series after six months.

Killing Eve season two will premiere on BBC America on 7 April at 8pm.
