Let the cat-and-mouse games start again.
Killing Eve, the thrilling and addictive TV series that had us all in the throes of obsession will return on the ABC in three weeks.
And in excellent news for Australians, we won’t have to wait like we did with season one, because our national broadcaster will fast-track the new episodes so they’ll be available at the same time as in the US and the UK.
New episodes of Killing Eve will drop on iview on Mondays from April 8.
The TV broadcast will follow from April 19 if you’re not keen on that newfangled streaming thing the kids keep going on about.
Starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, Killing Eve enthralled audiences the world over with the story of Villanelle (Comer), a sociopathic assassin and Eve (Oh), the unlikely MI6 agent tasked to find her.
The first series saw Eve chase Villanelle’s body trail all over Europe before a tense confrontation in Paris.
The second season picks up moments after we last saw that heart-racing sequence — Villanelle is stumbling through the street with a knife wound while Eve has to leg it back to London to face her husband and her boss after going, well, a little off-book.
Stabbing people, even assassins, is frowned upon.
Created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge from a book series by Luke Jennings, Killing Eve caught fire because of its complex depiction of flawed female characters, and the very, very bonkers dynamic between Eve and Villanelle, two characters who are seemingly opposites but are inexplicably drawn to each other.
The series was such a hit, the American broadcast saw ratings increase as the first season went on — a near impossibility. Oh went on to win to a Golden Globe for her performance.
The first season is available to binge now on iview.
