If you're still mourning the end of Sex And The City, then you've probably already binged the first season of Darren Star's latest series, Emily In Paris, which tells the story of a different gorgeous, young, fashion-forward woman (Emily, instead of Carrie and co.) in another sexy, exciting city (Paris, obviously, instead of New York City). The first season dropped on Netflix last month.
In the show, Lily Collins stars as Emily Cooper, a young woman from Chicago who lands her dream job and moves to Paris to work at a French marketing firm. There, she's tasked with bringing an "American perspective" to the company (because the American perspective isn't already shoved down the throats of people around the world enough, apparently?). The show is as earnest as it is delightfully absurd and it manages to strike the kind of tonal balancing act that made Darren Star's other shows (Sex And The City and Younger) so addictive. Clearly, we're already thirsty for a second season of the show.
Here's everything we do know about Emily In Paris Season 2.
It's officially been renewed!
Grab your berets, people, because we're going back to Paris. Netflix released a statement about the renewal back in November.
And Darren Star is already talking about the Season 2 storylines.
The show literally just got renewed, but its creator is already talking about the plot for the next season. "In Season 2, she's going to be more of a part of the fabric of the world she's living in. She'll be more of a resident of the city," he told OprahMag.com. "She'll have her feet on the ground a little more. She's making a life there."
Darren Star also apparently "let on" to OprahMag.com that his writing staff is already thinking ahead to the second season, which is a great sign for the show's future.
Filming was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, but they're back now!
Filming the second season was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has obviously thrown a wrench in many productions. But after months of being on pause, the show announced that they're back to work with a super cute Instagram announcement (from Sylvie!) that read:
"We are writing to inform you that Emily Cooper's new work permit has been approved with a start date of May 3, 20201. As per our prior correspondence, she is an asset to SAVOIR and we hope she continues to have impact with our clients who are very particular about the results they expect from our agency.
As we often work with very unique brands, we hope that Emily continues to immerse herself culturally here in order to not make any egregious faux pas. We will continue to keep you updated on her progress and accomplishments im the coming months."
Emily could travel more internationally in Season 2.
If Lily has her way, Emily could take advantage of her access to other European countries in Season 2.
"There were so many situations that we were like, 'Okay, write that down. That’s going to happen in season two,'" Lily told Vanity Fair. "Also, there were many experiences where we were like, 'Does Emily go abroad? Do you think Emily takes the Eurostar and hops out and goes to Belgium or she goes to London?' That would be so much fun...I'm like, 'Darren [Star], there are so many opportunities to just travel internationally when you're here.'"
And there could be even more love triangle action in store.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Lucas Bravo, who plays Gabriel, hinted that there could be even more layers to the Gabriel, Camille, Emily love triangle. "We planted a few seeds about different characters. Like Camille, when she kisses Emily on the mouth and she's like, "I'm not sorry." And then when they're in bed and I'm Liking the picture, it's all little seeds. Anything could happen among the three of them. I think Darren wants this second season to be really open-minded," he said.
The second season could give more attention to the arcs of supporting characters.
"We have a great world of characters that we've established," Darren Star told Vanity Fair of his plans for Season 2. "I'd like to explore so much more of the supporting cast, like Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, who plays Emily's boss. I think we've just scratched the surface of who she is and what makes her tick.…I certainly have a lot of thoughts about where I'd like to see things going, and I know that there's a lot of stories to tell.…I don't believe, as an American, you're ever at home in Paris. In terms of a second season, there are certainly a lot of roads to follow."
