Two years on from becoming Sky Atlantic's most-watched original series, Riviera is one day away from coming back for a second season.

To get you all excited, the broadcaster has released a clip of the first episode of season 2, and Julia Stiles' Georgina is in trouble...

Of course, she's trying to get away with the murder of Iwan Rheon's character Adam Clios in season 1, so you can't expect things to be all sugar and rainbows for her. But by God, that is one creepy bird caged up in her living room...

That's not the only problem facing our problematic heroine this season. The Elthams, an aristocratic English family with secrets of their own, are going to come onto the scene and cause all sorts of mischief.

Arrested Development legend Will Arnett is also making his debut as Georgina's charismatic uncle Jeff, which is excellent news. Meanwhile, World War Z actor Grégory Fitoussi will make his appearance as a handsome and mysterious love interest called Noah.

Stiles has described Arnett's character as "someone who sees through her armour. Will is perfectly cast as her mysterious and yet charming Uncle and I am excited to explore how far Georgina will go to protect her new life".

Other new faces joining the show include Poppy Delevingne (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Juliet Stevenson (Truly, Madly, Deeply) and Jack Fox (Kids In Love).

Riviera returns to Sky Atlantic on Thursday, May 23 at 9pm and is also available on NOW TV.
