BBC America has released a creepy new teaser trailer for the second season of “Killing Eve” just in time for Valentine’s Day, taking the whole love and obsession thing to another, totally demented level.
Set to premiere on Sunday, April 7, Season 2 of the cat-and-mouse spy drama picks up immediately following the cliffhanger stabbing of the Season 1 finale, but if the new teaser is any indication, that act of violence has only strengthened Eve and Villanelle’s mutual obsession and bonded them even more permanently than before.
“Sometimes when you love someone, you do crazy things,” Villanelle (Jodie Comer) says in the clip.
Eve (Sandra Oh), meanwhile, seems to be losing grip slightly after nearly killing someone for the first time. She spends the teaser doing totally normal things like interrupting proposals with literal blood on her hands, bursting out into laughter seemingly at random, and gently caressing knives while chopping carrots.
“Killing Eve” stars Oh and Comer as, respectively, an MI6 operative and a psychopath assassin bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act. Season 2 will pick up just 30 seconds after the end of the final episode of season one, with Villanelle having disappeared and Eve left with 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.
“I think what is most interesting about Eve stabbing Villanelle at the end of series one is Villanelle’s reaction to that and how she perceives that,” Comer told reporters earlier this week, ahead of the second season. “I think it affects them and changes them in a way that neither of them are quite expecting.”
“You see them [both] vulnerable in slightly different ways,” added Oh. “Because they’ve crossed a line and there’s kind of no going back. We have a lot of energy at the beginning of the series that pushes both them into a different place of vulnerability.”
Following the first season’s critical and commercial success, Season 2 is set to air on both BBC America and AMC, beginning with the season premiere on Sunday, April 7 at 8/7c.
