It took me a while to finally sit down and watch Killing Eve. I had heard nothing but praise for the series after its debut, but simply did not have the time to give it a look. When I finally did, I was thrilled to see the hype was justified. The show really is that good, and it's not like anything else on TV right now. Blending tones, from dark drama to laugh-out-loud humor, Killing Eve draws you in and doesn't let up.

At the end of season 1, MI5 officer Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) finally caught up with Villanelle / Oksana Astankova . (Jodie Comer), the highly effective (and deadly) assassin she'd been tracking the entire season. Both women are obsessed with each other, and that obsession appeared to finally be coming to a head in a big, romanti moment. But it wasn't – not quite. Instead, Eve stabbed Villanelle, and Villanelle then managed to escape.

Season 2 will delve even further into Villanelle's mysterious backstory. "What we really explore is these flickers of moments, where we feel like we're getting in there of who she was and is," Jodie Comer said recently. "She is forced into situations where she has to try and be honest, and I think that's really interesting for the audience to see."

According to TV Guide, the second season will pick up literally 30 seconds after season 1 ended. There's also going to be a new female assassin thrown into the mix, which will apparently complicate matters for both Eve and Villanelle. "Of course, what is without a doubt is that Eve has a particular sense for women and female assassins," said executive producer Emerald Fennel. "So what is really interesting is saying well, what do we do when somebody else comes along? Do we find out that Eve is a female assassin expert or is she a Villanelle expert? What does that mean for her, for Carolyn, for her job... Suddenly there's someone between them for the first time."

Killing Eve season 2 premieres April 7, 2019.

Eve (Sandra Oh) is a bored low-level MI5 security employee, working a simple desk-job that don't come close to fulfilling her secret desire of being a spy. Meanwhile, Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is a dangerous, capricious and dangerous assassin who enjoys a life of luxury afforded by her violent job. When Eve connects a string of murders all across Europe to Villanelle, she's hired to track the killer. The two end up obsessed with each other and enter into an epic and dangerous game of cat and mouse.
