WARNING: This section contains spoilers from Killing Eve season 1

Killing Eve season two will be set exactly 36 seconds after the dramatic finale to the first outing in which Eve stabbed Villanelle before instantly regretting the decision.

Audiences saw Villanelle manage to escape from Eve after she was tracked down to her apartment in Paris.

Season two will see Villanelle now on the run and Eve still hunting her down under the guidance of her boss Carolyn Martens (Fiona Shaw), who was revealed to be doing some double-dealing herself and part of a wider conspiracy.

Villanelle will still be carrying out hits in fabulous haute couture across the world in some glamorous locations as per usual with Eve hot on her trail.


Season two sees writer and actress Emerald Fennell replacing Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Killing Eve’s showrunner after the latter stepped down.

Speaking about the change in showrunner, star and executive producer Oh said: “It has shifted, but I do feel strongly that Emerald and Phoebe come from the same place.

“They have similar sensibilities, so it was a natural transition. The voice continued, and then, of course, Emerald has her own voice.”

She continued to Ad Week: “And I feel like the entire cast really got deeper engaged with the dynamics between the characters.”


Teasing on Villanelle’s development in season two, Comer told Variety: “She can’t physically do the things that she usually does, and she’s not used to having that limitation, and she’s completely helpless.

“We see her at a stage where we’ve never really seen her before in how she tries to scrambles her way out of this. Of course, within the second episode her injury becomes a big part of the story.”

The Doctor Foster actress went on to say: “Her own mortality kicks in. It was interesting because it was another part of her we hadn’t explored. It was more fascinating, in a way, to discover how that would mentally affect her.”
