The series, Deadline reports, follows Eve (Oh), a somewhat despondent MI5 security officer who finds a new purpose in life after being assigned to take down meticulous, merciless killer, Villanelle (Jodie Comer). Eve quickly learns, however, that tracking a skilled assassin is harder than it looks in spy flicks —and that it also pins you as the perfect target. That's bad news for Eve, but it's great news for the rest of us who have been dying to see Oh take on a more prominent leading role for years. Plus, if her appearance in Catfight demonstrated anything, it's that she can throw down with the best of 'em.
BBC released an official trailer for Killing Eve on Thursday, and it does not disappoint.
And, what's not to be excited about? From the looks of things, Oh got to spend fall in France during shooting. C'est magnifique!
Equally thrilled about the new series is creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), who told THR she's "quivering with excitement about working with Sandra."
"I have been a huge fan of hers forever and am pinching myself that she is playing our Eve," Waller-Bridge added. "She is going to be so badass in this role."
Unfortunately, we're going to have to wait until spring to see Oh jump into action. Killing Eve is set to premiere on BBC America on April 8.
