According to BBC America’s Anglophenia blog: “BBC America’s Killing Eve will return for its highly-anticipated second season on Sunday, April 7 at 8pm.
“Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer reprise their critically-acclaimed performances as Eve (played by Sandra Oh), an MI6 operative and psychopath assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) in this story of two women, bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act.
“Beginning just 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.”
