“Riviera” Renewed for Season 3

The Julia Stiles-led crime thriller has been renewed for a third season at Sky Atlantic. 

According to Deadline, the broadcaster has ordered another eight-part run. Stiles will return as Georgina Clios, and she will also exec produce the forthcoming season. 

The series’ third run will venture beyond France’s Cote d’Azur, taking the drama globally.

“The new series will see Julia Stiles take the glitz and glamour of the Cote d’Azur around the globe as her character Georgina Clios tries to escape the devastation the Riviera has wrought on her,” Sky said when announcing the new season.

“We are so proud of this Sky original series. We set out to make the most glamorous 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,” said director of programming, Zai Bennett.

Stiles added: “You’d think that there was nothing left for the Riviera to throw at Georgina but series three is our most ambitious yet.”

 Filming is set to start in autumn 2019.
