The series, which stars Sandra Oh as MI-5 agent Eve Polastri and Jodie Comer as psychopathic assassin Villanelle, was a critical darling in 2018; it even made our Top 5 Favorite TV Shows Of 2018 List.
Killing Eve was renewed for Season 2 before Season 1 even aired and the gamble paid off. Fans turned out in droves for the BBC America series which features two strong female leads and combines action, humor and suspense in a seamless way.
