What is Riviera season 3 about?

Set a year after the end of season two, the new season will see Georgina’s, “loyalty, courage and resilience tested to the extreme,” according to Sky, with the character having abandoned the Riviera to start a new life, leaving behind all the damage and devastation.

Now a “rising star in an international art restitution” – and going by the name Georgina Ryland  – the new season follows our heroine as she searches for stolen artworks around the world, taking her to such far-flung and exotic locations as Venice and Argentina.

The season also introduces Gabriel Hirsch (Rupert Graves), a “charismatic” individual who accompanies Georgina on her adventures.

Stiles herself stated, “The expansion of this season, in terms of the gorgeous new countries we visit, as well as our new cast members, means the web is even more tangled for Georgina. I am thrilled to navigate this gilded conspiracy through her eyes and with Rupert Graves by her side.”

Riviera season 3 locations

Series three will see Georgina escape the French Riviera in favour of a host of exotic locations. For her to take a detour to Venice is certainly a bit different, but a trip to Argentina just highlights the new heights that series three will reach.

There’s been no word on other locations and to what extent the Côte d’Azur will feature, but you can imagine Georgina will be greeted by a breadth of intriguing new characters along the way.

Who is in the Riviera season 3 cast?

The major addition to the Riviera cast is Rupert Graves, best known for playing DI Lestrade in Sherlock, who will play Gabriel opposite returning star Julia Stiles.
