Based on novellas by Luke Jennings, the first series followed MI5 officer Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) as she pursued international assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) across Europe.

The new trailer shows Polastri on the hunt for Villanelle once again, after the psychopathic killer goes on the run from hospital.

The first series was adapted by RTS award-winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who acts as an executive producer on series two with writer-actor Emerald Fennel taking over as lead writer.
