Sandra Oh in Killing Eve

BBC America

After a successful eight-episode first season, "Killing Eve" is returning to BBC America in April.

The Golden Globe-nominated drama series will continue to follow MI5 officer Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer), the psychopatic assassin she's tied to. It will pick up "exactly 36 heart-thumping seconds after the events of the season finale," according to AMC Entertainment Networks President Sarah Barnett. The exec teased that Season 2 will be "twisty, subversive, darkly funny, nerve-wracking and pleasurable," plus "packed with superlative performances," per Deadline.

The show has been a wild ride so far, and both lead actresses have received praise from critics for their work on the show. Oh, in particular, has been lauded; she earned nods Emmy, Golden Globe, SAG, and Critics' Choice award nods.

"Killing Eve" also stars Fiona Shaw, while Nina Sosanya and Edward Bluemel have joined as series regulars. Additionally, Julian Barratt, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, and Shannon Tarbet will guest star in Season 2.

The twisty fun begins again when "Killing Eve" Season 2 debuts on Sunday, April 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America. We hope you're ready for it.
