Jodie Comer will be return as the world's most entertaining serial killer, Villanelle

Killing Eve series two isn’t too far away… here’s everything we know so far about its return…

It will be on next year

Killing Eve - Jodie Comer

Villanelle (Jodie Comer)

The first series of the British-made drama for BBC America, based on Luke Jennings’ Codename Villanelle novellas, made its debut on BBC1, and as a box set on BBC iPlayer, in September.

“It’s a genre-busting series that’s had viewers hooked and craving more,” says Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content. “We’re really excited to have it back next year.” If you’ve not watched series one, catch it now on BBC iPlayer.

Jodie and Sandra are back for Killing Eve Series Two

What’s on telly tonight? Our pick of the best shows on Saturday 3rd November including final episode of Killing Eve

They’re back!

Doctor Foster star Jodie returns as ruthless but strangely likeable Villanelle, with Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) reprising her role as her nemesis, security operative Eve Polastri. Their cat-and-mouse game will again be at the heart of the new series but can Jodie give us any more clues? “I don’t think I can,” she laughs. “The show picks up from where the first season left off, 
but other than that…”

And this very intriguing character also returns…

Killing Eve

Fiona Shaw was brilliant as Carolyn Martens in series one, now she’s back for the second run

Fiona Shaw is also back as Carolyn Martens, head of the Russian section of MI6. Meanwhile, there’s no official confirmation yet, but fans are hoping Kim Bodnia will return as Villanelle’s ex-handler Konstantin.

Last Tango in Halifax’s Nina Sosanya and A Discovery Of Witches’ Edward Bluemel join the cast, but their roles are under wraps for now. The Mighty Boosh star Julian Barratt has landed a guest role.

There’s a Call the Midwife connection!

Emerald Fennell

Call the Midwife star Emerald Fennell is penning Killing Eve Series Two

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) adapted the first series of Killing Eve and returns for series two in an executive producer role, with Call the Midwife star Emerald Fennell taking over as lead writer. Jodie admits the change did unsettle her at first.

“It initially worried me, because Phoebe is so unique and her voice is so distinctive,” she says. “You think, ‘Oh God – is anyone else going to be able to take the reins?’

“And you have Emerald, who is so brilliant and also a very close friend of Phoebe, so they have a very similar sense of humour, and Emerald really understands the characters and the tone of the show. I’ve been really excited by the script and where the characters go.”
