Killing Eve

Back with more costume changes than Jennifer Lopez’s Super Bowl half-time show, the assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is now without a job – and as far as she knows, Eve (Sandra Oh) is out of her life for good.

Ex-MI6 operative Eve is hiding in plain sight, hoping that Villanelle will never find her – until a death sets them on a collision course yet again. Fiona Shaw, Kim Bodnia, Sean Delaney and Owen McDonnell return, while familiar faces Harriet Walter (Succession), Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), and Steve Pemberton (Inside No. 9) join the cast.

After Life

Ricky Gervais is back for a second outing of this Netflix sitcom as nice guy Tony, a small-town journalist who had the perfect life until his wife died from cancer.
