The highly anticipated TV series, 'Salade Grecque' or 'Greek Salad' will continue the story of Xavier (Romain Duris) and Wendy (Kelly Reilly), and their children Tom and Mia, who are now in their 20s. This series delves into the themes of heritage, family, culture, and the experiences of European youth today. The story begins with a frenzied dinner, where Tom discovers that his daughter has stopped her studies to aid immigrants. The family is then faced with living with young people from all over Europe, much like Xavier and Wendy did 20 years ago. The series will be set in Athens, Greece, where the family has inherited an apartment following their father's death.
Director Klapisch preferred to create a sequel with the first-time heroes, Xavier and Wendy, on the back burner.

With its unique blend of contemporary issues, Greek culture, and family drama, 'Salade Grecque' promises to be a compelling series that will captivate audiences around the world.
