Bloodied, well-dressed and sporting a manic laugh, the first pictures released of Villanelle show the second series of Killing Eve is unlikely to disappoint.
Although the series of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Golden Globe-nominated, cat-and-mouse drama Killing Eve is not due to drop until April 8, 2019, eager fans were given a taste of what’s to come in a trailer from the BBC, which gives a glimpse of some of its most popular shows.
In the trailer, Villanelle is pictured with a wide grin, seemingly oblivious to the grazes all over her face.

Starring Jodie Comer as hired killer Villanelle and Sandra Oh as MI5 agent Eve Polastri, series two will pick up 36 seconds after the events of the finale. It ended with an injured Villanelle on the run after the explosive confrontation with nemesis Eve, and the MI6 agent determined to find her before somebody else does.
In the first images released from filming Jodie as Villanelle is pictured covered in blood, while another still shows Sandra as Eve hugging her knees in a bath.
In an interview with Vogue last year, Comer revealed the best part of playing the ‘charismatic, cold-blooded killer’ was that the character was “just so full of life [so] to be able to explore that and not hold back, to just push it and push it and push it”.

Teasing the show, chief writer and executive producer Emerald Fennell told Entertainment Weekly: “Eve has done something, which may have changed her forever, that will have repercussions with every relationship in her life.”
