Coming soon: Riviera Series 2
Format: 10 x 60'
Broadcaster: Sky Atlantic
Set in the sun-soaked south of France, the second series picks up in the aftermath of the shocking first series finale, with returning cast members Julia Stiles, Lena Olin, Roxane Duran and Dimitri Leonidas joined by Will Arnett, Juliet Stevenson, Poppy Delevingne, Jack Fox and Grégory Fitoussi.
While the Clios family contend with the devastation caused by Constantine’s death, Georgina’s focus is on getting away with murder. However, things become even more complicated with the introduction of the Elthams, an aristocratic English family with secrets of their own. Juliet Stevenson takes on the role of Lady Cassandra Eltham and is joined on the Riviera by her children, the impossibly stylish Daphne (Delevingne) and the brooding Nico (Fox).
Meanwhile, Georgina (Stiles) is reunited with her charismatic uncle Jeff (Arnett) and we learn more about the troubled past she left behind in America. She also becomes entangled with the handsome and mysterious Noah (Fitoussi).
This new season promises to give fans even more of what they love, with more glamour, more intrigue and more betrayal: all set against the gorgeous backdrop of the playground of the super-rich.
Filming is currently taking place location in Nice with the series set to return to Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in 2019.
The first season of Riviera was Sky’s most successful original commission to date with a total audience of 2.3m per episode, and over 20m downloads and views.
