AMC Networks announced today that AMC will simulcast Season 2 of the critically acclaimed BBC America series Killing Eve, starring Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice Award and SAG Award-winner Sandra Oh and breakout star Jodie Comer, on Sunday, April 7 at 8/7c.
“When we launched Killing Eve on BBC America last year we had high hopes, but no idea it would become this obsession,” said Sarah Barnett, President, Entertainment Networks for AMC Networks. “We believe we’ve just hit the tip of the iceberg in terms of potential viewers and we want to expose this brilliant series to the largest audience we can. That’s what’s behind this move… to have a big, premium network like AMC introduce this fantastic storytelling to an even broader array of viewers and fans.”
Based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings, Killing Eve revolves around Eve (Sandra Oh), an MI6 operative, and psychopath assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) in this story of two women, bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act. In the second season, the action picks up just 36 seconds after the end of the final episode of season one. Villanelle has disappeared and Eve is left reeling, having no idea if the woman she stabbed is alive or dead. With both of them in deep trouble, Eve has to find Villanelle before someone else does. Unfortunately, she’s not the only person looking for her.
Killing Eve won the TCA Award for “Best New Show” in 2018 and is the top drama on Metacritic’s “TV Shows Mentioned On Most Critic Top 10 Lists – 2018.” The series finished its first season with an unbroken record of weekly ratings growth – something no other show on television has accomplished in the history of Nielsen live+3 ratings.
