This week on AMC Networks, the series finale of "Luther," the season two premiere of "Riviera," and all-new episodes of "NOS4A2," "Fear the Walking Dead, and "The Son".
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Season two of Sundance Now's "Riviera," premieres on Thursday, June 20th. In the season premiere, Georgina makes a turbulent return to the Riviera, determined to conceal Adam's murder from the Clios family, only to find a sinister message waiting for her: someone knows her secret. Georgina sets out on a quest to confront her accuser that brings her into contact with the intriguing Daphne Eltham.
"Riviera's" highly anticipated return picks up in the immediate aftermath of the explosive first series finale, where the Clios family is faced with the tragic death of one of their own. Only this time, the blood is on the hands of our female protagonist, Georgina (Juila Stiles).
As Georgina tries to find a way to live with her crime, secrets from her past wash up on the sandy shores of the Cote d'Azur that force her to explore her turbulent childhood against her will. Following an unprecedented and unavoidable visit to her childhood home, Georgina returns with a refreshed sense of self to re-establish her power and position in the family alongside her charismatic confidant, uncle Jeff (Will Arnett).
Georgina very quickly becomes acquainted with the Eltham family, an English dynasty that sail in to the Cote d'Azur providing its shores with a dose of new money and glamour. She goes on to form relationships with the whole family, some that appear genuine from the outset and others that unravel around her as secrets, old and new, become exposed. Juliet Stevenson takes on the role of Lady Cassandra Eltham and is joined on the Riviera by her children, the impossibly stylish Daphne (Poppy Delevingne) and the brooding Nico (Jack Fox) and Daphne's husband Raafi (Alex Lanipekun).
Elsewhere in the Riviera, the rest of the Clios family is still reeling from Constantine's death. Christos (Dimitri Leonidas) is on the brink of losing everything, Adriana (Roxanne Duran) loses herself in a dangerous affair and Irina struggles to find her lost son, Adam.
The Riviera has never been so tempestuous. Torn between her past and her present, can Georgina navigate her way to safer waters, or will she lose her place in a world that she has grown to control?
The final season of AMC's "The Son," continues on Saturday, June 22nd at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the all-new episode, "The Bear," Young Eli's tribe encounters soldiers that make an unexpected offer in 1852, while in 1916, Pete makes a decision that could tear the family apart.
Based on Philipp Meyer's New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel of the same name, season two of "The Son" concludes the journey of the iconic "First Son of Texas." Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan) will stop at nothing to secure his legacy against the backdrop of the nascent oil industry of 1917. His tools are deceit, fraud and murder -- weapons he wields with the effortless skill of the Comanche warrior he once was. But the biggest challenge he faces will be quelling a civil war under his own roof, triggered by his idealistic son Pete (Henry Garrett). Eli knows the ultimate prize of American dynasty is nearly in his grasp, and time is running out. Meanwhile, in 1851, young Eli (Jacob Lofland) is now married and a respected warrior among the Comanches, but tragedy forces him into a leadership position as the vast Comanche empire crumbles around him. Broadening the scope, a 1988 timeline is introduced, bringing the McCullough saga into the more immediate past. Here, at age 85, Eli's granddaughter Jeanne Anne McCullough (Lois Smith) is confronted with a long-buried family secret.
The Season 5 finale of "Luther" premieres on Sunday, June 23rd at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America. Reeling from the death of his friend, Luther races to save the others from Cornelius's terrible retribution. With Luther's increasing absence from the case, Halliday heads the hunt for a killer on the loose - a killer determined to complete his final macabre masterpiece.
Season 5 of "Fear the Walking Dead" continues on Sunday, June 23rd at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In this week's episode, "Skidmark," Charlie makes a friend, while Strand, Wendell, and Sarah's rescue mission hits a snag. Elsewhere, Alicia, Luciana, and Morgan struggle to fulfill their mission.
In "Fear the Walking Dead" Season five, the group's mission is clear: locate survivors and help make what's left of the world a slightly better place. With dogged determination, Morgan Jones (Lennie James) leads the group with a philosophy rooted in benevolence, community and hope. Each character believes that helping others will allow them to make up for the wrongs of their pasts. But trust won't be easily earned. Their mission of helping others will be put to the ultimate test when our group finds themselves in unchartered territory, one which will force them to face not just their pasts but also their fears. It is only through facing those fears that the group will discover an entirely new way to live, one that will leave them forever changed.
AMC's new supernatural horror series, "NOS4A2" continues on Sunday, June 23rd at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. In the fourth episode, "The House of Sleep," Vic seeks the Wraith and learns she must trust her gift, while a body surfaces in Haverhill.
"NOS4A2" stars Emmy(R)-nominated actor and producer Zachary Quinto ("Star Trek," "American Horror Story") and rising star Ashleigh Cummings ("The Goldfinch"). Emmy(R)-nominated director Kari Skogland ("The Handmaid's Tale," "Sons of Liberty") directed the first two episodes of the series. The cast also includes Olafur Darri Olafsson ("Lady Dynamite"), Virginia Kull ("The Looming Tower"), Ebon Moss-Bachrach ("The Punisher") and Jahkara Smith (aka Sailor J). The series is executive produced by showrunner Jami O'Brien ("Fear the Walking Dead," "Hell on Wheels"), Lauren Corrao, co-president of Tornante Television, and Joe Hill. The series is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television.
Based on the 2013 novel by Joe Hill, "NOS4A2" introduces Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings), a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. This ability puts her on a collision course with the evil and immortal Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto). Manx is a supernatural villain who feeds off the souls of children and then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland - a twisted place of Manx's imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims - without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.
