Watch 'Killing Eve' season two trailer
The full cast has not yet been announced, but Sandra (Eve Polastri) and Jodie Comer (Villanelle) will reprise their lead roles. Fiona Shaw will also return as the mysterious MI6 operative Carolyn Martens.
BBC America revealed in a press release that the new season will open just 36 seconds after the end of the previous season.
"Beginning just 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," the release reads.
"With both of them in deep trouble, Eve has to find Villanelle before someone else does…But unfortunately, she’s not the only person looking for her."
The first season left many threads open. Who are the mysterious twelve who send Villanelle to do their bidding? How will Villanelle and Eve respond to each other if they meet again in the future? Who is Konstantin (Kim Bodnia) really, and what is Carolyn's (Fiona Shaw) deal?
Will Eve and her husband Niko (Owen McDonnell) stay together? There is really a lot to fill in, a lot. If you want to get as close to the truth as possible, "Killing Eve" is based on Luke Jennings' crime novellas; there are two books so far: "Codename Villanelle" and "No Tomorrow".
KillingEve Season 2 premieres on BBC America April 7 at 8/7c.
