Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer And Fiona Shaw Return For A Second Series Of The Darkly Funny BBC Thriller 'Killing Eve'

Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer return as (respectively) a British intelligence agent and a psychopathic professional killer for the second series of 'Killing Eve.'

With 'Call the Midwife’s Emerald Fennell' assuming control over the rules from Phoebe Waller-Bridge as lead writer, the new series sees the return of greater part of our favorite characters (considering the fact that Comer’s deadly assassin Villanelle didn’t kill them off) in notwithstanding a few fresh out of the box new faces.

3.7 million viewers tuned in to watch the first episode on BBC One, and 2.6 million individuals urged the boxset for the second series in the first thirty-six hours of it being made to the public.

Even astonishing is the fact that 18,000 people have just flown through the entire series, bingeing it right away by any means.

So who is in the series’ ensemble.
