What is Riviera about?
The French-set crime drama follows super wealthy newly-wed Georgina Clios, an American art curator whose life transforms after the death of her billionaire husband Constantine in a yacht accident. As she seeks to uncover the truth about her husband’s sudden death, Georgina becomes entangled in a world of deceit and crime.
***Warning: spoilers ahead for Riviera series one***
Season two picks up where season one ended – with the wider implications of Constantine’s yacht accident still taking their toll, and the new episodes will show the aftermath of the series one finale cliffhanger in which Georgina killed master manipulator Adam.
The second series will see Georgina contend with new arrivals, the Eltham family, a dynasty with many a secret. We will also learn more about the troubled past Georgina left behind in America and she has a new love interest in the form of the dashing and mysterious Noah.
Will Georgina be able to get away with murder? And can she retain her power within the Clios household and her position at the top of the art world?
