European crime drama Riviera, featuring Julia Styles, is back for its second season at SBS later this month.
This aired internationally in May. Double episodes will air each week.
Riviera’s highly anticipated return picks up in the immediate aftermath of the explosive first series finale, where the Clios family is faced with the tragic death of one of their own. Only this time, the blood is on the hands of our female protagonist, Georgina (Julia Stiles). As Georgina tries to find a way to live with her crime, secrets from her past wash up on the sandy shores of the Cote d’Azur that force her to explore her turbulent childhood against her will.
Following an unprecedented and unavoidable visit to her childhood home, Georgina returns with a refreshed sense of self to re-establish her power and position in the family alongside her charismatic confidant, Uncle Jeff (Will Arnett). Georgina very quickly becomes acquainted with the Eltham family, an English dynasty that sail in to the Cote d’Azur, providing its shores with a dose of new money and glamour. She goes on to form relationships with the whole family, some that appear genuine from the outset and others that unravel around her as secrets, old and new, become exposed. 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), the brooding Nico (Jack Fox), and Daphne’s husband Raafi (Alex Lanipekun).
