BBC America Renews ‘Killing Eve’ for Season Two

Pick Up Comes 3 Days Before the Series Premiere

BBC America picked up drama “Killing Eve” for a second season, days before its April 8th debut. It stars Sandra Oh (“Grey’s Anatomy”) and Jodie Comer (“The White Princess”) and revolves around a psychopathic assassin and the woman charged with hunting her down.  
 
The logline: Based on the novellas by Luke Jennings, ‘Killing Eve’ centers on two women; Eve is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade security services operative whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle is an elegant, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. ‘Killing Eve’ topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.
