Killing Eve season 2 return date: Fans go wild as BBC announce hit show will return on 8 June
Killing Eve season 2 will be released on 8 June.
The BBC has announced the second season of hit series Killing Eve will begin on on BBC One on 8 June .
On Twitter the broadcaster shared a video showcasing the complex relationship between characters Villanelle, played by Jodie Comer, and Eve, Sandra Oh.
The tweet read: “YAAAAS, IT’S OFFICIAL! New #KillingEve. Saturday 8 June, 9.15pm. See you then.”
In the video Villanelle is heard saying: “Sometimes when you love someone you will do crazy things.”
She later says: “I know her [Eve] better now – better than anyone.”
Fans immediately responded with their excitement ahead of the new series, with one person saying: “Whoa BBC One for season 2? Yesssss!!! more people need to be watching #KillingEve.” [sic]
Others wrote: “Yay! About time . . . !” and: “Hopefully I will have given birth by this time so I can watch it in my hospital bed.” [sic]
Season two of the hit show has aired in the US already, with UK fans delighted that it will now be shown here.
The season two trailer recently dropped, showing Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer back as Eve and Villanelle, along with Fiona Shaw as the mysterious Carolyn.
The new trailer sees Villanelle on the run, after a horrific stabbing she suffered last season from Eve herself.
Alongside the short trailer, BBC America tweeted: “Sometimes they see red. “The wait makes them blue. Eve and Villanelle. Are ready for you.”
Killing Eve series 2 was confirmed earlier this year, with BBC America president Sarah Barnett saying at the time: “The early response to Killing Eve has been incredible.
“For that reason, as well as the fact that we wholeheartedly love this original, funny, thrillingly entertaining series, we are delighted to move ahead with a second season before we even premiere.”
