UK thriller Riviera has been renewed for a third season.
Julia Stiles plays Georgina Clios, a U.S. art curator who attempts to uncover the truth about her husband’s death in the series. It also features Lena Olin, Adrian Lester and Iwan Rheon.
Stiles said, “You’d think that there was nothing left for the Riviera to throw at Georgina but series three is our most ambitious yet. I am thrilled to be a part of this incredible drama for Sky Atlantic. The chance to deliver another season of Riviera is exciting and I am grateful to our audience for coming along with us on this journey.”
Zai Bennett, Director of Programming, Sky Entertainment added, “We are so proud of this Sky original series. We set out to make the most glamourous show in the world and now we are taking that glamour to a host of new locations which will provide even more intrigue, danger and beauty.”
Executive producer Kris Thykier, said, “The first season of Riviera was Sky’s most successful original series of all time with 20 million downloads in the UK, we hope that season two can build on this success and are thrilled to be going into production on a third series. Working with Sky has been an amazing experience and we are incredibly grateful for their unbridled enthusiasm and overwhelming support for the show.”
SBS has screened the first season of Riviera, but yet to screen season 2.
