It would not take lengthy to understand that Emily in Paris (Lily Collins) has no concept what she’s doing. The Netflix present follows a clueless younger American girl who walks right into a tradition with which she’s made no effort to familiarize herself; when she first meets her downstairs neighbor, Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), he tells her he is from Normandy, and this girl straight-up says, “Oh, I do know that seaside; Saving Personal Ryan, proper?” Um, do you actually need French individuals pondering you are an ignorant American who will get her nation’s historical past from a 1998 Tom Hanks film? Possibly examine in with your self earlier than flippantly referencing a World Warfare II battle that killed hundreds of individuals.
Regardless of Emily’s fumbles, it’s a must to admit her journey is relatable to any American who studied overseas in Europe after they have been younger and silly. Sure, Emily is meant to be an grownup girl from Chicago with a Masters diploma and disdain for Lou Malnotti’s deep dish. However she’s dwelling a glamorous life in Paris in 2020 whereas the remainder of us are getting themed face masks shilled to us by Instagram. As my good friend Laura put it on Twitter, “Emily in Paris, remainder of us in hell.”
Not solely does this tweet describe the expertise of watching the present, but it surely concurrently accepts that the collection is our greatest choice for escaping actual life in our current circumstances. Emily will get to run round Paris and go to eating places; have awkward, inappropriate interactions together with her boss; and bang many mediocre males with out a care on the planet. She would not should quarantine for 2 weeks earlier than going to her dad and mom’ for the weekend or put on a masks as she makes any of her dozens of horrible decisions. Emily is free to be an ignorant American in Paris, and that’s purpose sufficient to observe this present.
Now, the true query is: When will there be extra?
Season 2 is formally confirmed.
On Wednesday, November 11, Netflix confirmed Emily in Paris would return for a second season with a unusual observe penned by Emily’s long-suffering boss Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu).

Nous sommes désolées! We’re writing to regrettably inform you that Emily Cooper might want to stay in Paris for an prolonged time period. Regardless of her overconfident method and lack of prior expertise in luxurious items advertising, she has nonetheless managed to allure a few of our hard-to-impress purchasers throughout her brief time at Savoir. Name it bonne likelihood, or American ingenuity—I’m leaning in the direction of the previous—her outcomes are spectacular.
We hope that by extending her time in Paris, Emily will additional the relationships she has already made, delve deeper into our tradition, and maybe decide up a couple of phrases of primary French.
We’ll work along side you on making use of for a piece allow on her behalf to lengthen her time right here.
We love having Emily in Paris!
However please don’t let her know that.
Earlier than the renewal information, creator Darren Star told E! News he has some concepts for the subsequent season. “I believe Emily has some stunning powerful decisions,” he stated. “The present’s a lot concerning the tradition undermining her expectations of how issues are and the way issues appear. And every part won’t be because it appears. It is at all times about difficult her American worldview. We actually have a variety of forks within the street and a variety of locations to go.”
Filming might begin this spring.
Emily in Paris was truly filmed in Paris, and with the pandemic gumming up actually every part, it has been onerous to inform when manufacturing on season 2 would start. In an interview with Deadline, Collins talked about a tentative plan to begin capturing within the spring: “We’re aiming to hopefully be going again quickly,” she stated. “Hopefully in springtime. We’re attempting to maneuver ahead. Once more, every part is Covid pending. After we acquired confirmed for season 2 it made us all much more excited and much more anxious to get again. After all, there are such a lot of laws proper now and we wish to be protected, however we wish to get again.”
The script may very well be refreshingly queer.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Bravo hinted at the potential for a second season. He stated that the primary season has “planted a couple of seeds about totally different characters.” That is the place it will get fascinating: “Like Camille, when she kisses Emily on the mouth, and she or he’s like, ‘I am not sorry.’ After which after they’re in mattress, and I am liking the image, it is all little seeds,” he defined. “Something might occur between the three of them. I believe Darren needs this second season to be actually open-minded.”
In an interview with Vogue U.K., Collins stated, “there are tons of little moments the place you’re like, ‘…Does Camille like Emily?’ You possibly can’t actually get a vibe, and I really feel like that ambiguity is what retains Emily intrigued. I believe anybody in that place can be like, you are my good friend, however now I’ve this romantic connection [with Gabriel], and I do not wish to harm you, however… Oh my God! So, you recognize what, it is actually complicated. I really feel like the subsequent season will solely create extra love triangle drama, though perhaps Emily can have a little bit little bit of a stronger deal with on the scenario… Or perhaps not.”
I do not learn about you, reader, however I undoubtedly wasn’t sorry when that Emily-Camille kiss occurred. Emily did say, “I normally favor males.” It there a little bit room to combine issues up, Em? Expensive god, let’s hope so.
Collins would not know a lot concerning the season 2 plot proper now.
In that Deadline interview, Collins stated she’s at midnight as to what’s subsequent for her wacky character’s romantic life, however she reminded us that Camille remains to be within the image. That is simply my opinion (and I am not alone), however Emily in Paris hasn’t made many developments for range. Might we no less than get a little bit shoutout for polyamory?
“I do not know what they’re writing proper now,” Collins stated, “however I believe it might be a little bit early for Emily to lock one thing in. I believe she’s nonetheless exploring the prospects. Truthfully, I believe Emily would not even know [what will happen], and that is the fantastic thing about the way in which that they write the present. She has but to search out all of the qualities she perhaps is on the lookout for. However that being stated, there’s that reference to Gabriel, however now she has Camille in that love triangle, so I believe there’s nonetheless experiences available, journey available and she or he’s nonetheless discovering herself.”
Expertise? Journey? (Cough) please make it homosexual.
Season 2 might discover Emily’s previous.
We undoubtedly acquired our fill of Emily fumbling round Paris in season 1, and it appears season 2 will ship much less fumbling and extra precise plot: “The primary season, we solely had ten episodes to essentially discover her new pals at work and who she meets outdoors of labor, so I am excited to dive deeper into these backstories and spend extra time intermingling the 2 teams of those that she meets,” Collins stated. “Now that we have seen her with all these ‘Parisisms,’ perhaps we get to truly get to a bit extra of her backstory, and expertise that with among the different characters.”
Emily will develop up a bit in season 2.
If and when Emily does return, Star says she’ll be extra settled into life in Paris. “In season 2, she’s going to be extra of part of the material of the world she’s dwelling in. She’ll be extra of a resident of the town,” he told OprahMag.com. “She’ll have her ft on the bottom a little bit extra. She’s making a life there.”
Does this imply she might be much less of a humiliation to Individuals? Time will inform.
Within the meantime, au revoir, Emily! Learn a historical past e-book!
