We bet you were excited while watching the premiere of the BBC America’s new drama series Killing Eve. The ten-episode first season of the show comes to an end May 27, 2018. However, most of the viewers likely wonder whether there will be a second season of Killing Eve on BBC America? Fortunately, you may relax since the network has already announced the renewal of the drama series for another round yet before its premiere.

Sarah Barnett, BBC AMERICA President, announced the decision on April 5, 2018. In fact, two possible reasons played in favor of renewal. First, the show’s premiere has received the universal acclaim. Secondly, Killing Eve has its roots in a series of novels by Luke Jennings. As a result, there is enough source material for another television adaptation.
The Pilot episode has garnered less than half a million viewers (0.423) with a 0.10 demo rating among adults 18-49. However, it’s worth mentioning that BBC America can’t boast with the impressive figures of their shows. As a result, the more precious factor for the network is the response from critics and viewers, which was excellent in the case of Killing Eve. On Rotten Tomatoes, the drama holds a score of 8.48/10 and a 100% approval rating among critics, while the viewers have evaluated the first round of Killing Eve at 4.3/5/87%. We see almost the same data on Metacritic, 83/100 and 7.0/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. An overall score of Killing Eve on IMDb is also high, 8.3/10 > 700 votes.
Sarah Barnett said that she was thrilled by watching the play of the title characters, Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer. She also stated that this drama series is ideally fitting the network’s lineup. Therefore, they have opted to give an early renewal for Killing Eve. We hope that we would see more season of this exciting series in the future as well.
What’s The Show Killing Eve About?
If you haven’t seen this masterpiece freshman on BBC America, we’d suggest you read a brief overview of Killing Eve below. Otherwise, you may scroll down to find out more about the likely release date for another installment.
The story focuses on Eve Polastri, quick-witted and intelligent MI5 operative. She aims to track down a sophisticated killer nicknamed Villanelle, who is a psychopathic assassin. In their cat and mouse game, each woman is obsessed with the other. But their collision must end with someone’s victory, or not?
On The Possible Release Date For Season 2
Though BBC America has given an early renewal for their freshman Killing Eve, the network has yet to say any words on the likely release date for a next season. We, frankly, doubt that the next chapter could start this summer. Most likely, it’s a better time to start the production of the 2nd installment. As a result, Killing Eve Season 2 could premiere this fall or, in the worst case, in the winter of 2019. In any case, we are looking forward to the official news from BBC America. We’ll update this article when the network announces any particular data on the subject. For now, stay tuned for updates. We’ll keep you informed.
