Killing Eve season 2 trailer: Kitchen knives and a collapsing Villanelle
The first trailer for season two of BBC America’s critically-acclaimed Killing Eve has been released—and the obsession between main characters Eve Polastri and Villanelle shows no signs of letting up.
Series one of Killing Eve, based on Luke Jennings’s Codename Villanelle book series, received rave reviews and picked up a number of awards, including Sandra Oh winning a Golden Globe for her role as Eve, since its release in April 2018.
The season two trailer for the drama, which combines black comedy and psychosexual elements, shows that Villanelle (Jodie Comer) survives being stabbed by Polastri in the first series finale—only to collapse after getting out of a hospital bed.
Killing Eve follows two women, MI5 agent Polastri and psychopathic assassin Villanelle, who quickly become obsessed with each other. It has attracted a large LGBT+ fanbase.
Killing Eve season two: Trailer shows the obsession continues
“I found Villanelle, I think I might have killed her,” says Polastri at one point.
In another clip, Villanelle is seen looking for a kitchen knife, before saying to an unknown recipient: “[It’s] to stab you with.”
Villanelle, meanwhile, can be heard saying: “Sometimes when you love someone, you do crazy things.”
A US release date has been set for Sunday 7 April on BBC America. Producers have yet to confirm a date for the UK launch.
The soundtrack for the trailer is Skylar Grey’s 2014 cover of Robert Palmer’s track “Addicted To Love.”
