The sunny place for shady people: Riviera returns with first-look image for the second season of the highly anticipated Sky original production

“Riviera is not about the male moguls in this world, it’s the women who are driving this show.” – Julia Stiles

It’s recognised as the perfect combination of wealth, power and glamour, but underneath the murky waters of the Cote d’Azur lies a turbulent world of deceit, murder and manipulation. It can only be the return of Sky original production, Riviera, coming soon to Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW TV on the 23rd May, 2019.

Season one of Rivera was Sky’s most successful original drama to date, and the first look image gives fans a taste of what to expect from season two with more glamour, intrigue, and betrayal: all set against the gorgeous backdrop of the playground of the super-rich.

About the show:

Behind every great fortune is a great crime, and the second season of Riviera sees Georgina ( Julia Stiles) focused on trying to get away with murder as she fights to retain power within the Clios household and her position at the top of the elusive art world.

Picking up immediately from the shocking ending of season one, with the Clios family still reeling from the devastation caused by Constantine’s mysterious death, Georgina continues her battle for dominance and control with Irina Clios ( Lena Olin ) and her children Christos (Dimitri Leonidas) and Adriana (Roxanne Duran).

She must also contend with new arrivals, the Eltham family. A dynasty who sail in to the shores of the Cote d’Azur, 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 (Poppy Delevingne) and the brooding Nico (Jack Fox) and Daphne’s husband Raafi (Alex Lanipekun).

Meanwhile, Georgina is reunited with her charismatic uncle Jeff (Will Arnett) and we learn more about the troubled past she left behind in America. She also becomes entangled with the handsome and mysterious Noah (Grégory Fitoussi).

Riviera is a Sky Original Production in association with Altice Studios. Produced by Archery Pictures and Primo Productions, the Executive Producers are Kris Thykier, Paul McGuinness and Cameron Roach for Sky. International distribution is being handled by Sky Vision.
