                            'Killing Eve' season 2: Release date, cast, plot and everything else you need to know

'Killing Eve' had managed to strike a wide fanbase globally ever since the release of the BBC America thriller featuring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, so it really came as no surprise when a second season was announced. But now, owing to the recently released trailer of season 2, excitement and anticipation has built up primarily because (spoiler alert!) Comer's Villanelle is very much alive and back to continue teasing and tormenting Oh's character Eve Polastri.

So before your mind goes all sorts of crazy trying to figure when the season is premiering and other details, worry not, cause we have it all covered for you.

Oh, who has wowed and amazed us consistently as Dr. Christina Yang in the hit drama 'Grey's Anatomy' is back to reprise her role as MI6 agent Eve Polastri, while Comer from 'Doctor Foster's' is returning with a revamped and revved up version of the assassin that is Villanelle. Every Potterhead's not-so-favorite aunt from the 'Harry Potter' franchise, Aunt Petunia aka Fiona Shaw will be joining the cast once again as Carolyn.



 

 

As for newcomers that fans can watch out for, there are plenty of interesting characters added to the already riveting plot. W1A's Nina Sosanya and Edward Bluemel are joining the second installment of the show too, alongside 'The Mighty Boosh's Julian Barratt.

The first season of 'Killing Eve' is based on Luke Jennings's 'Codename Villanelle' novella series, but as for the main plot for the second season, nothing has been confirmed apart from Oh revealing how things are only going to get much darker for her character as she gets trapped further and further in Villanelle's games. Even Phoebe Waller-Bridge who was critically acclaimed for her direction of the first season isn't returning this time but worry not. Season 2 is in the safe hands of the ever so talented Emerald Fennell, who is known for her works in the BBC's ratings smash 'Call The Midwife' and several books on children's fantasy and adult horror. Waller-Bridge is still onboard as an executive producer though.



 

 

As the trailer suggests, the action for the second seasons picks up exactly where the frustrating cliffhanger of the first season's finale left off. We see Eve telling someone on the phone that she has found Villanelle, but might have killed her, and the very next moment, all our questions about Villanelle's mortal status are answered. Injured and barely capable of movement, the assassin is far from ditching her trickster days as she keeps luring her prey, Eve, with far darker and sinister motives this time.
