From the third installment of Stranger Things to The Hills reboot, the universe is giving us a lot of reasons to put our DVRs in overdrive this year. And come spring, the broadcast gods will award us with another can't-miss show: season two of Killing Eve.
The suspenseful cat-and-mouse series, which follows M15 agent Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) as she attempts to track down unhinged assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer), is so gripping that three days before it had even made its TV debut last year, BBC America announced that the show was being renewed for a second season.
So what can we expect from season two of the hit series? The season-one finale wrapped with a pretty big cliffhanger that left audiences with a number of questions (and high blood pressure)—the largest of which was (spoilers ahead!): What happened to Villanelle?
Well, a newly released trailer for BBC Drama's 2019 shows appears to give a few clues. In it, you can see Villanelle is alive and well—but Eve seems to be back with her husband.
In another teaser that's not available to embed yet, Villanelle stares directly into the camera and says, "I hope you haven't forgotten about me." That seems to indicate that the antagonist will make a fiery return to the second season. (See that here.) In another, Eve is asked, "Why are you two so interested in each other? What really happened in Paris?"
These newly released stills from the second season also appear to indicate that the high-stakes chase between Eve and Villanelle will pick back up in season two:
Unfortunately, that's all we have to go on, so far. So while most of what's in store for season two is still largely a mystery, here's what we do know about the return of the series:
The release date: Trailers for the series hinted that the show would drop in 2019, and thanks to a list of TV premiere dates from The Hollywood Reporter, we now know that the first episode of the second season will air on Sunday, April 7, at 8:00 P.M. ET.
The cast: The show's leads, Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, will reprise their roles as Eve Polastri and Villanelle, respectively. Fiona Shaw will also rejoin the cast this season as mysterious operative Carolyn. Newcomers to the show include Nina Sosanya (Good Omens) and Edward Bluemel (The Commuter), according to Deadline.
How you can watch: If you don't have BBC America, then no worries. AMC announced on January 30 that it will simulcast season two of Killing Eve. Essentially, this means AMC will be playing the new Killing Eve episodes in tandem with BBC America. So now you have two ways to check out the show!
Is it spring yet?
