‘Killing Eve’ Season 2: Villanelle and Eve Go Crazy for Each Other in New Trailer (Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

BBC America has released a creepy new teaser trailer for the second season of “Killing Eve” just in time for Valentine’s Day, taking the whole love and obsession thing to another, totally demented level.

Set to premiere on Sunday, April 7, Season 2 of the cat-and-mouse spy drama picks up immediately following the cliffhanger stabbing of the Season 1 finale, but if the new teaser is any indication, that act of violence has only strengthened Eve and Villanelle’s mutual obsession and bonded them even more permanently than before.

“Sometimes when you love someone, you do crazy things,” Villanelle (Jodie Comer) says in the clip.

Eve (Sandra Oh), meanwhile, seems to be losing grip slightly after nearly killing someone for the first time. She spends the teaser doing totally normal things like interrupting proposals with literal blood on her hands, bursting out into laughter seemingly at random, and gently caressing knives while chopping carrots.

“Killing Eve” stars Oh and Comer as, respectively, an MI6 operative and a psychopath assassin bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act. Season 2 will pick up just 30 seconds after the end of the final episode of season one, with Villanelle having disappeared and Eve left with no idea if the woman she stabbed is alive or dead. With both of them in deep trouble, Eve has to find Villanelle before someone else does… but unfortunately, she’s not the only person looking for her.

“I think what is most interesting about Eve stabbing Villanelle at the end of series one is Villanelle’s reaction to that and how she perceives that,” Comer told reporters earlier this week, ahead of the second season. “I think it affects them and changes them in a way that neither of them are quite expecting.”

“You see them [both] vulnerable in slightly different ways,” added Oh. “Because they’ve crossed a line and there’s kind of no going back. We have a lot of energy at the beginning of the series that pushes both them into a different place of vulnerability.”

Following the first season’s critical and commercial success, Season 2 is set to air on both BBC America and AMC, beginning with the season premiere on Sunday, April 7 at 8/7c.

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

The smash hit first season of “Killing Eve” went out on a massive cliffhanger, with one act of violence that both inextricably linked the show’s two central characters while also permanently complicating the relationship. And Season 2 wastes no time delving into the consequences of that moment.

Set to return in April, the second season picks up just 30 seconds later, with both Eve (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer) reeling in the aftermath of the potentially fatal stabbing. Villanelle is on the run with a knife wound to nurse, while Eve has to come to terms with the fact that she might’ve just killed someone.

“I think what is most interesting about Eve stabbing Villanelle at the end of series one is Villanelle’s reaction to that and how she perceives that,” Comer told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour on Saturday. “I think it affects them and changes them in a way that neither of them are quite expecting.”

Comer said audiences will see the typically in-control Villanelle “in a very different light” because, for the first time, “she has no control of the situation.”

But Villanelle won’t be alone in her moment of instability. Even though Eve and Villanelle don’t cross paths in the series very often, their stories became forever intertwined from the moment Eve took on the case in Season 1.

“You see them [both] vulnerable in slightly different ways,” Oh said. “Because they’ve crossed a line and there’s kind of no going back. We have a lot of energy at the beginning of the series that pushes both them into a different place of vulnerability.”

Season 2 will also introduce a new, potentially complicating twist to the Eve-Villanelle relationship that neither saw coming — a new assassin.

“Suddenly there’s someone between them for the first time,” teased executive producer and writer Emerald Fennel, who took over as showrunner for creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge for Season 2.

“With everything in this show, it comes down that core, which is the gravitational pull that Eve and Villanelle feel towards each other,” Fennel said. “What was fascinating was saying What do we do when somebody else comes along? Is she a female assassin expert, or is she a Villanelle expert? And what does that mean for her job?”

As for whether the two women — one a potentially psychopathic assassin, the other the spy obsessively trying to hunt her down — can find a way to resolve their relationship without the violence escalating even further, Oh and Comer said it remains to be seen.

“It’s something that we don’t have the answer to,” Comer said. “It’s something that we’re also figuring out and finding all the pieces to as we’re playing all the scenes on set, which is actually really exciting.”

“How can you come to terms with something — a relationship — that seems to be impossible?” added Oh. “That’s something that I think we’re trying to figure out daily.”

Golden Globes Slip 5 Percent in Early TV Ratings

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Sunday’s 2019 Golden Globes dipped in early TV ratings, posting a 12.7 household TV rating/21 share from Nielsen. The overnight rating is down almost 5 percent from 2018, the share is even.

Last year’s Golden Globes, hosted by Seth Meyers, earned a 13.3 household TV rating and 21 share from Nielsen. Though those results was even with 2017’s data, when all markets were tallied and timezones adjusted, last year’s overall Globes viewership sank 5 percent from 2017 (19 million vs. 20 million).

In other words, this initial -4.5% could change too. It’s worth noting here that the Seattle market is currently excluded from the 2019 numbers, making this a 55 vs. 56-market comparison. That’s imperfect, but the lone omission is unlikely to change the trajectory of these returns.

This year’s Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh-hosted special had the big advantage of an NFL Playoffs lead-in. And that game went down to the wire, too, with the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles earning a road win off a double-doink field-goal attempt by Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey.

Despite the year-over-year decline, NBC’s Globes were TV’s highest-rated non-sports show since March’s Oscars.

While shedding 4.5 percent of the prior year’s overnight rating is never a good thing, things could be worse. The latest Academy Awards (-16%), Grammys (-20%), Emmys (-10%), CMAs (-24%) and AMAs (-21%) were all down double digits from their respective previous installments.

Fast-national Nielsen numbers for the entire broadcast will be available in a few hours, but those are not adjusted for the different time zones. So for now (and for a few hours), the metered markets stats are the best we’ve got. Final figures are expected later today.

Stars Were Born at the Golden Globes – But They Sure Weren’t the Ones We Expected

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

For about three hours and five minutes on Sunday night, the 76th Annual Golden Globes ceremony was making a pretty good case that the Globes are a lot more interesting when they’re about politics or movements — or, really, anything but awards.

It was a pretty mundane Golden Globes show, until the moment when Gary Oldman opened the envelope for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama, and didn’t read the name of Lady Gaga.

Instead, Glenn Close was the winner for “The Wife,” an indie film from Sony Classics that has been seen by a fraction of the audience for Lady Gaga’s performance in “A Star Is Born.” It was the biggest shock of the night — hell, the biggest shock in a few years at the Globes — and it led to an outpouring of emotion and a rousing speech that may actually put Close in the center of the best-actress conversation from now on, rather than on the periphery.

After all, she’s never won an Oscar despite a brilliant four-decade career – and after Sunday, who wouldn’t want to see her on the stage of the Dolby Theatre in February?

Close’s win was something rare at the Globes: a victory that has the potential to change awards season. And it gave the show a sense that something had actually happened.

The moment was followed by Rami Malek’s passionate speech after he won the drama-actor award for playing Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and then by “BoRap” upsetting “A Star Is Born” in the Best Motion Picture – Drama category. Awards season suddenly turned upside down.

Could Malek win an Oscar, too? (Yes, he could.) Could “Bohemian Rhapsody” be a true contender to win Best Picture? (Let’s not get ahead of ourselves — it’ll have to get nominated first, and that’s not a sure thing at all, even now.)

It was a weird, delicious, baffling ending to what had been a fairly mundane Golden Globes show, a blast of unexpectedness that shows that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is as odd as ever.

And it gave a badly needed jolt to a show that had until then seemed far less vital and purposeful than last year’s Globes, in which the birth of the #TimesUp movement turned the show into a black-clad statement of purpose, or the 2017 show, when a fiery anti-Donald Trump speech by Meryl Streep galvanized the room and overshadowed a record number of wins by “La La Land.”

This year’s Globes gave us a pair of subdued hosts in Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, a decent joke about the Oscars hosting situation, a few political comments, some expected winners, a handful of minor upsets and, for more than three hours, not much else.

Apart from the jolt of Glenn Close and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the difference in this show was perhaps epitomized in this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient, Jeff Bridges. His two predecessors in winning that award, Streep and Oprah Winfrey, raised the roof with their cries for change.

Bridges, in the way that we’ve all come to love, was goofy and endearing and as cosmic as his “Big Lebowski” character, the Dude, as he gave Buckminster Fuller what was probably his first-ever awards-show shout-out and then compared everybody in the room to the little rudders that help big rudders turn oil tankers.

“We can turn this ship toward the way we want to gooooo, man!” he said, beaming. “Toward love!”

So that was this year’s Golden Globes. Like Bridges, Samberg and Oh tried to steer things toward love in their snark-free opening monologue, and then the HFPA handed out more dollops of love for about three hours, ending with the unexpected ones.

But while Glenn Close and “Bohemian Rhapsody” came out as the big winners and “A Star Is Born” took a hit on a night it was expected to dominate, most of the top Oscar contenders did what they needed to do.

“Roma,” which wasn’t eligible in the best-picture categories because it’s in Spanish, won the foreign-language film award and also, crucially, took the Best Director Globe. “Green Book” won an expected award for supporting actor Mahershala Ali, added a slightly surprising one for its screenplay and then took the big one, Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

And the two films that lost to “Green Book” in that category, “Vice” and “The Favourite,” did what they needed to do — winning top acting awards for Christian Bale and Olivia Colman — even if they didn’t do as well as their creators would have liked.

Colman in particular came in as an unknown quantity to too many voters — but she was so endearing and sassy in her acceptance speech that she essentially delivered a promise that nobody will regret voting for her over the next few weeks.

On the drama side — classifications are fluid at the Golden Globes — “A Star Is Born” was the night’s biggest flop, though it did win the Best Original Song award, and “Bohemian Rhapsody” the biggest winner. But Barry Jenkins’ lyrical “If Beale Street Could Talk” stayed in the game courtesy of a supporting-actress win from Regina King.

The view from this corner is that Close’s award has the potential to be an actual game-changer, that Rami Malek is a serious contender to win the Oscar, and that “Bohemian Rhapsody” will go down as one of those oddball HFPA choices that only grows more baffling in retrospect.

But let’s give the voters credit: They shook things up on Sunday night, and a free-for-all of an awards season is even wilder now than it was before.
