Based on the “Codename Villanelle” novellas by Luke Jennings, Killing Eve centers on two women; Eve (Sandra Oh) is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade security services operative whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is an elegant, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.
Nina Sosanya (Good Omens), Edward Bluemel (A Discovery of Witches), Julian Barratt (Mindhorn), Henry Lloyd-Hughes (Indian Summers), and Shannon Tarbet (Colette) are joining Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, and Fiona Shaw in Killing Eve Season 2.
Killing Eve capped its incredible first season with an unbroken record of weekly ratings growth in the key adults 25-54 and 18-49 demos – something no other show on television has accomplished in more than a decade. Killing Eve was commissioned in 2016 for BBC America by President and GM Sarah Barnett, and Nena Rodrigue, EVP of Original Programming, Acquisitions and Production.
Killing Eve is executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci and Emerald Fennell. Sandra Oh is co-executive producer. Elinor Day serves as series producer. The series is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd. and distributed by Endeavor Content. Damon Thomas returns to direct and is also executive producer, with Lisa Brühlmann and Francesca Gregorini also directing.
