The UK finally has a premiere date for Killing Eve season two, and it’s coming sooner than you think.
BBC revealed that the long-awaited follow-up will be uploaded – in its entirety – onto their online streaming service this June.
The series, which stars Sandra Oh as a desk-bound M15 officer who attempts to track down a notorious, psychopath assassin – played by Jodie Comer – premiered its second season in the U.S. at the start of April.
The finale will air on 26 May. But don’t worry, it’s already been renewed for a third instalment with a new showrunner.
The show’s lead writer, Emerald Fennell (who replaced creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge for the second season), said in a statement: “It’s been such an exciting year for me on Killing Eve. I think it’s cool that this tradition has been built into this untraditional show.
“Inheriting some of Phoebe’s characters was a treat – I can’t wait to see what Suzanne [Heathcote] does next.”
Waller-Bridge, who still remains as a producer on the show, also praised Heathcote.
“I’m very excited that the Killing Eve baton is being passed onto another incredible writer for season three,” she said. “We can sleep soundly knowing these characters are safe in Suzanne Heathcote’s hilariously murderous hands.”
Killing Eve received universal acclaim for its first season and was subsequently nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the Emmy Awards, making Sandra Oh the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated for the award.
She lost out to Claire Foy for her performance in Netflix drama The Crown, but she did receive a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Critics Choice Award, all for Best Actress.
Season two of Killing Eve airs every Sunday on BBC America. Watch the trailer below.
