SUNDANCE NOW COMES ABOARD SEASON TWO OF THRILLING CRIME DRAMA SERIES "RIVIERA" STARRING JULIA STILES

New Season Welcomes International Cast Including Will Arnett, Juliet Stevenson, Poppy Delevingne, Jack Fox, Grégory Fitoussi and Alex Lanipekun

NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 5, 2018 - Sundance Now, AMC Networks' premium streaming service, announced it has come aboard season two of the thrilling crime drama, "Riviera." The series, which is currently shooting on location in Nice, will be available to stream on Sundance Now in 2019. Joining the cast for season two is Alex Lanipekun ("Homeland," "The Borgias," "24"), as well as the previously announced Will Arnett ("Arrested Development"), Juliet Stevenson (Truly, Madly, Deeply), Poppy Delevingne (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Jack Fox ("Dracula"), and Grégory Fitoussi (World War Z). They'll join returning cast members Julia Stiles, Lena Olin, Roxane Duran and Dimitri Leonidas, picking up in the aftermath of the shocking first season 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 brooding Nico (Fox), the impossibly stylish Daphne (Delevingne) and Daphne's husband Raafi Al Qadr (Lanipekun) who hails from Qatari wealth.

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).

"'We are delighted to welcome a second season of 'Riviera' to Sundance Now. It is an addictive series with a compelling narrative, a gorgeous setting, and an all-star cast - it's no wonder that season one resonated with our members in such a powerful way," said Jan Diedrichsen, General Manager of SundanceTV and Sundance Now.

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 armor. Will is perfectly cast in that role and I am excited to explore how far Georgina will go to protect her new life."

"Riviera" also welcomes back acclaimed Belgian director, Hans Herbots (Rellik) in the role of lead director. Sue Howells is on board as Series Producer for Season 2.

"Riviera" is a Sky original production in association with Altice Studios. Produced by Archery Pictures, Primo Productions and Sky, the executive producers are Kris Thykier, Paul McGuinness and Cameron Roach for Sky. International distribution is being handled by Sky Vision.
