Starring Jodie Comer as psychopathic assassin Villanelle and Sandra Oh as MI6 agent Eve Polastri, series one of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s drama was a major hit – and now it is back for a second series with a brand-new showrunner.
You might think that UK viewers would get first-look at Killing Eve, which is made by BBC America and is based in England.
However, the drama has actually already aired internationally, beginning on 7th April 2019 on BBC America and AMC in the US with weekly episodes; and the new series also kicked off in New Zealand on 8th April at 9:35pm on TVNZ 2, and on 19th April at 8:32pm on ABC in Australia.

if you’re planning on watching, I’d recommend finishing the season without watching the last 10 mins of ep8!

Killing Eve Trailer Just for British fans, take a look at this trailer from the BBC ahead of the UK release.
Actress and writer Emerald Fennell has taken over the reins from Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Killing Eve’s lead writer for the second series.
She is probably best known to viewers as Nurse Patsy Mount from Call the Midwife or as Ada Lovelace from Victoria, but we’ll soon be seeing her as Camilla Parker-Bowles in series three of The Crown. Previous writing credits include episodes of the TV series Drifters, but she is a relative newcomer to the screenwriting business.
Killing Eve season 2 filming locations Paris, Amsterdam, the Forest of Dean, London, and Rome Filming for series two of Killing Eve took place across Paris, Amsterdam, the Forest of Dean, London and Rome.
Gare de l’Est doubles up as Gare du Nord in the opening episode of Killing Eve season two, when Eve is fleeing the city after stabbing Villanelle in her apartment.
Villanelle can be seen strolling around the canals of Amsterdam and visiting the Rijksmuseum, where she sees a gruesome work of art by Jan de Baen, Corpses of the de Witt Brothers. The painting inspires her, erm, creative murder of a man in the city’s red light district.
Later, Villanelle can be seen drowning her sorrows and almost killing a girl for skipping the toilet queue in the nightclub Shelter in Overhoeksplein. The club is especially striking with its through-the-floor entrance, which has the effect of the ground swallowing her up.
Forest of Dean, England
When Villanelle is brought on board by MI6 to question another female assassin, she is taken to Gloucestershire’s Forest of Dean to avoid detection.
Carolyn Martens can be seen fencing (another brilliant character quirk) at the rather grand Westminster School Sports Centre in London, and when Villanelle stuffs her face with pasta at a restaurant with Aaron Peel, they are sitting in the City Social in the financial district’s Tower 42.
