BBC America has given Killing Eve an early pickup for Season 2. The good news comes ahead of its series premiere this weekend.

Based on the 'Villanelle' novellas by Luke Jennings, the thriller follows two opposing spies. On one side is Eve, a sharp MI-5 security services officer who is stuck at a desk job that doesn't fulfill her dream of being a spy. Opposing her is Villanelle, a psychopathic, yet intelligent, killer who loves the luxuries her violent job provides her. By the nature of their occupations, these two relentless women become equally obsessed with each other, and face off in an epic cat and mouse game of tradecraft.

While the series has yet to debut, it has garnered a healthy amount of early critical praise, which the cable network has attributed to today's renewal. Look for the premiere this Sunday, April 8 at 8:00pm on BBC America.
