Watch: Teaser trailer for season two of Killing Eve is released

Killing Eve was the breakaway success of the television world last year and has amassed a myriad of fans.

Created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the BBC series stars Sandra Oh as Eve Polastri, an MI5 officer who is entrusted to hunt down the ruthless assassin Villanelle who is played by actress Jodie Comer. A cat and mouse game ensues as does a story of obsession, intrigue and drama.

Fans were left on a cliffhanger at the end of season 1 when Eve Polastri stabbed Villanelle, who then flees her Paris apartment. The trailer opens with Eve telling her superiors she is worried she "might have killed her".
