Will Arnett and Poppy Delevingne join cast of Riviera for series 2
Filming has started on the second series of hit Sky Atlantic drama Riviera, with the show’s returning cast joined by a host of new stars.
The first season of Riviera attracted an audience of 2.3m per episode, making it Sky’s most successful original commission to date.
Series two sees Julia Stiles, Lena Olin, Roxane Duran and Dimitri Leonidas return to the Cote d’Azur, where they are joined 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).
Picking up where the first series left off, season two sees the Clios family contend with the devastation caused by Constantine’s death, while Georgina (Stiles) is focused on getting away with murder.
The introduction of an aristocratic English family, the Elthams, only serves to complicate matters. Juliet Stevenson plays Lady Cassandra Eltham while Poppy Delevingne and Jack Fox are her children Daphne and Noah.
Georgina, meanwhile, is reunited with her charismatic uncle Jeff (Arnett) and becomes entangled with the handsome and mysterious Noah (Fitoussi).
'The ultimate in escapism'
Filming starts today on location in Nice. We can expect Riviera back on our screens – providing you have access to either Sky Atlantic or a NOW TV Entertainment pass – in 2019.
Julia Stiles said: “It’s thrilling to return to the Riviera and to welcome such incredible new talent to the show. Georgina’s past catches up to her in season two and the drama only intensifies.
“She is reunited with her mysterious yet charming uncle, someone who sees through her armour. Will is perfectly cast in that role and I am excited to explore how far Georgina will go to protect her new life.”
Sky's head of drama, Anne Mensah, said: “Riviera is the ultimate in escapism, a cinematic journey into the extraordinary world of the rich and powerful seen through the eyes of our anti-heroine, Georgina.
“The Elthams will bring a fresh rush of aristocratic British elegance to sit alongside the new money European luxury of the Clioses, while the introduction of Georgina’s uncle Jeff gives us the opportunity to explore more of her dark backstory. We are thrilled these characters will be brought to life by such incredible acting talent.”
