BBC America has released a new trailer for the second season of its breakout hit Killing Eve, and it looks just as deliciously twisted as ever. Here, we see a little more Villanelle’s (Jodie Comer) plans after having been stabbed (whoops!) by Sandra Oh‘s Eve in the Season 1 finale. The women are still very much obsessed with one another (though what that actually means we don’t yet know), and there look to be even more outrageous turns and — of course — fashions in the upcoming season. The first season of Killing Eve was not only a breath of fresh air narratively, it was a visual feast as well.

As I wrote in the post for the first Season 2 trailer, “During the Killing Eve panel at this year’s Television Critics Association press conference, the cast and Fennell gave us a few hints about the new season (which we were able to see the first two episode of), as well as explaining the ongoing dynamic between Eve and Villanelle. We’ll have more of that for you as the premiere draws closer, but suffice to say that if you loved Season 1, so far, Season 2 seems like it will be more of the same greatness (thanks also to its absolutely stellar cast). One thing I did not get clarification on was if I should be afraid for the precious Niko, though — when I asked a question about him, Sandra Oh only smiled …”
Check out the trailer below for Killing Eve Season 2, which also stars Fiona Shaw, Darren Boyd, and Owen McDonnell. The series is executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci and lead writer Emerald Fennell. Sandra Oh and Francesca Gardiner are co-executive producers, and Elinor Day serves as series producer. Damon Thomas returns to direct and is also executive producer, with Lisa Brühlmann and Francesca Gregorini also directing.
Killing Eve premieres Sunday, April 7 on both BBC America and AMC.
