Jodie Comer, as devastating serial killer Villanelle, is holding a tuning fork during Handel, and Sandra Oh, the Villanelle-obsessed MI5 agent Eve, is resplendent with a backdrop of Verdi’s Requiem.
We can’t even, guys. We can’t even.
Like, it’s thrilling. It’s thrilling Killing Eve is back. And it’s thrilling for us that the return of one of the best shows on TV has been announced with a fanfare of some of the best choral music ever written.
Cue Villanelle, in side profile, holding an incredibly sharp tuning fork, edited with a sharp cut on ‘Hallelujah!’ to reveal Eve and Villanelle side-by-side in red dresses made of dramatic, floating fabrics.
All v. dramatic. Once the date of the season premiere is announced in the trailer – 26 April 2020, yay! – Eve Polastri (Oh) is dramatically reintroduced with a towering climax from the Verdi.
Gahd, we’re shook.
