The second season of Killing Eve will receive its UK premiere on BBC One on Saturday June 8th at 9:15pm, it has been announced.
Following the broadcast of the season premiere on BBC One, all eight season two episodes will be made available to stream on BBC Three (via BBC iPlayer). The series will also continue to air in its Saturday slot on BBC One.
Killing Eve follows Eve, a bored MI5 security officer whose desk job does not fulfil her fantasies of being a spy. When Eve is tasked with tracking down Villanelle – a fearsome assassin clinging to the luxuries her violent job affords her – before she can strike again, the two women are thrown into a cat-and-mouse game that turns the traditional spy-thriller on its head. The drama series, which was created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is produced by Sid Gentle Ltd and stars Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw.
Season two picks up just 36 seconds after the end of the final episode of season one. Villanelle has disappeared and Eve is left reeling, having 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. Joining the cast for season two is Nina Sosanya, Edward Bluemel and guest star Julian Barrett. The series is based on the novellas by Luke Jennings. The executive producers are Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris and Gina Mingacci.
