TV: How good does Sky Atlantic's Rivera 2 look?!
Series two of the Sky original Production Riviera is coming to Sky Atlantic this May, and we thought we’d remind you just how good it looks.
The Cote d’Azur is about to get even more stylish as a host of new faces join the cast of Sky Atlantic’s record breaking drama, Riviera.
The second series of the Sky original production sees returning cast members Julia Stiles, Lena Olin, Roxane Duran and Dimitri Leonidas joined in the sun-soaked south of France by Will Arnett (Arrested Development), Juliet Stevenson (Truly, Madly, Deeply), Poppy Delevingne (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Jack Fox (Kids In Love) and Grégory Fitoussi (World War Z).
This series picks up in the aftermath of the shocking first series finale. 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 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 (Julia 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).
The first season of Riviera was Sky’s most successful original commission to date with an audience of 2.3m per episode, and over 20m downloads and views in total. Riviera 2 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.
Riviera 2 launches Thursday 23 May, on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.
