Nina Sosanya, Julian Barratt and Edward Bluemel join Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer in the series.

The second season will pick up "exactly 36 heart-thumping seconds after the events of the season finale," said Sarah Barnett, President of AMC Entertainment Networks. "This new season is packed with superlative performances and is as twisty, subversive, darkly funny, nerve-wracking and pleasurable as our fans could desire."

The series, produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd. and based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings, recently finished production in Europe.
