5 Reasons You Won’t Want To Miss The New Season Of Killing Eve

By Corrina | Thursday, 04 April 2019
Following the wave of awards show recognition that its debut season garnered, Killing Eve is set to return this month for another installment of obsessive cat-and-mouse hide-and-seek (with a brutal murder or eight thrown into the mix). Eve (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer) have pursued their, um, “relationship” at the expense of basically everything else in their personal and professional lives (to Eve’s mega-handsome husband, we will miss you). The season culminated in the ultimate face-to-face meeting followed by a breakup of sorts — it’s hard to forgive someone for stabbing you — and it left us wanting more. Here’s why: 
 
Sandra Oh's Golden Globe-Winning Performance

Oh took home a well-deserved Globe for Best Performance in a Television Series---Drama while setting some records at the same time. She was the first Asian actress to host the awards show and the first to win multiple Golden Globes. On top of that, her moving acceptance speech, in which she thanked her parents in Korean, was all anyone could talk about that night.

The Outfits

Whether she’s undercover in a massage parlour, at a hospital, or strolling the streets of Paris in head-to-toe Balenciaga, Villanelle’s obsession with couture clothes (and her inability to actually enjoy her ill-begotten wealth in any other real, stable way) is a serious bonus for the fashion-obsessed (raises hand).
 
The Jokes

Thanks to a fantastic writing team, both Oh and Comer are armed with an arsenal of sarcastic one-liners made all that much better by Comer’s deadpan delivery and Oh’s character’s unapologetic self-awareness.

Villanelle's Limitless Creativity When It Comes To Killing

She’s like the Beyoncé of assassins.
 
The Will They Won't They, Edge-Of-Your-Seat Suspense

Writer and showrunner Phoebe Waller-Bridge crafted a groundbreaking and unique relationship between a female protagonist and her anti-hero nemesis/quasi love interest that kept us guessing all of Season 1 as the stakes (and the body count) rose and rose again. We can’t wait to see what Season 2 brings.
 
Killing Eve returns for a second killer season this Sunday, April 7.
