As of Monday afternoon, it was not yet clear which cast members — including lead Gérard Depardieu (Life of Pi, The Man in the Iron Mask) and co-star Benoît Magimel (The Piano Teacher, Little White Lies) — were returning for the sophomore season.
The series, which Netflix premiered in May, tells the story of Depardieu’s Robert Taro, Marseille’s current mayor, who is at odds with his successor, Magimel’s Lucas Barrés.
Tele-Loisirs, a French TV magazine, was first to report the renewal news.
The first season of Marseille is available to stream on Netflix.
