Killing Eve: Season 2 (2019)


Season 2
Killing Eve

Critics Consensus

With the titillating cat-and-mouse game still rooted at its core, Killing Eve returns for an enthralling second season of considerably higher stakes, hilariously dark humor and a captivating dynamic between characters, solidifying its position as one of the best spy thrillers out.

Critic Reviews for Killing Eve Season 2

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (17)

Jodie Comer has perfected the psychopath. She's mesmerising as the ruthless assassin Villanelle in this thriller.

It still feels so fresh. Comer is as marvellous as ever, particularly when Villanelle is posturing (she acts acting so brilliantly); her petulant charm never fails.

Jun 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Yet as the season inevitably outgrows the cat and mouse premise that sustained series one and Eve and Villanelle became more intimately acquainted, a slight flakiness start to intrude.

Jun 10, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Last series we saw a slightly softer side to Villanelle in her interactions with the young girl she abducted. Here [Jodie] Comer gives us an anti-heroine who's battered, scared, in pain, exhausted and outmanoeuvred. She's excellent.

Jun 6, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The show knows when to lighten the serious life-and-death stuff with a wicked joke or gag, and it knows when to speed up the electrifying action. And just when we'll been lulled into something resembling comfort, bam!

If Eve is our frayed tether to reality, Villanelle embodies the entitled, otherworldly glamour of both being in her line of work and taking pride in it.

Watching Season 2 is like a second helping of an uncommonly delicious and hard-to-find dessert - not strictly necessary, but the pleasure of gobbling it up negates the minor downsides of excess calories and diminishing returns.

Aug 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Killing Eve remains far and away one of the smartest, funniest, British dramas on television.

Jul 29, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The strongest aspect of this second season is its unwillingness to reiterate or re-establish motive, instead twisting and growing to a dizzying finale.

Jul 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Killing Eve tramples the tropes and stereotypes of spy stories and femininity with bankable style and flair.

Audience Reviews for Killing Eve: Season 2

  • 2d ago
    Pales in comparison to Season One. Lacks all the wit and charm that PW-B brought. Disappointing.
  • Aug 03, 2019
    One of my favourite series. Love the story, characters and terrific acting.
  • Jul 29, 2019
    A fresh look into female dynamics that proves to be both infuriating and satisfying in the darkest of ways. The guilt of appreciating these murderous characters is alleviated with it quick, witty humor. BBC knocks it out of the park with this surprisingly sapphic hit.

    Just when you thought you've seen it all! Female killer like you've never seen before. The romance and charm is irresistible!
  • Jul 23, 2019
    In my opinion I love the shiw,. I think Killing Eve is entertaining, interesting, fun completely binge worthy. I would love to see another season.
  • Jul 23, 2019
    Season 1 blew me away and each episode followed into the next with non stop pacing. But Season 2 has a new show runner and the magic is lost! Still good TV, but not great TV that season 1 is. Season 3 will have another different showrunner so I hope it doesn't go further down hill.
  • Jul 11, 2019
    Second season even better than the previous one. Continuation of fascinating game between Eve and Villanelle. Visuals are aesthetically pleasing. Great job Jodie Comer in creating Villanelle!
  • Jul 11, 2019
    Pretty Good. Lost my attention a bit throughout the season though. Not quite as intriguing as season 1.
  • Jun 17, 2019
    Brilliant in every way

    Needs a little more Oh
