Here's ​Everything You Need To Know About Series Two Of Killing Eve

BBC dram Killing Eve was renewed for a second series in America before the show had even been streamed in the UK and after a successful stateside debut in April.

The eight-part series was developed for television by Fleabag's Pheobe Waller-Bridge adaptation of the Codename Villanelle novella series from English author Luke Jennings.

The unsettling drama has been hugely successful on BBC iPlayer and follows the relationship between a bored MI5 officer, Eve Polastri and assassin Villanelle.

Eve is played by Grey's Anatomy actress Sandra Oh, and Villanelle is played by Doctor Foster's Jodie Comer.

The success of the first series in America led to a second series being commissioned before it had been streamed here in the UK.

BBC America president Sarah Barnett said: "The early response to Killing Eve has been incredible - for that reason, as well as the fact that we wholeheartedly love this original, funny, thrillingly entertaining series, we are delighted to move ahead with a second season before we even premiere."

If you've already binge watched series one, we have all the information you need on the second series.


As Pheobe Waller-Bridge is currently filming a new series of Fleabag the writing responsibility has been passed on to Emerald Fennell, but Pheobe will stay as an Executive Producer.

Emerald will be well known as Nurse Patsy Mount from Call The Midwife, but since 2012 she has had four books published.

Filming on the second run of Killing Eve has already begun, with shooting taking place in Amsterdam, London and Paris, so expect to see the show back on your screens in Spring 2019.

As filming has already started we could expect to see a short teaser trailer dropping once the series has finished it's run on terrestrial TV, in November.

Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer will be returning as Eve and Villanelle and mysterious operative Carolyn will also be making a come-back played by Fiona Shaw.

The trio will be joined by W1A's Nina Sosanya and Edward Bluemel and surprisingly The Mighty Boosh's Julian Barratt will make a guest appearance during the run.

After the cliffhanger of the final episode we're unsure which direction series two will go.

There are a few questions we need answering, like who are the mysterious organisation known as 'The Twelve' and why do they send Villanelle to exact their bidding?

Or Will Villanelle and Eve meet up again and what will happen when they do, will they team up?

Killing Eve is available to stream on BBC iPlayer and also airs on Saturdays at 9.15pm on BBC One
