Will Emily have a better chance at living the Parisian life in season 2?
In Paris, Emily dropped on Netflix early this month, and the world couldn't stop talking about it for all the reasons.
From Emily's chic fashion pieces designed by Patricia Field to the controversial plot that irked some French viewers, Emily In Paris is undeniably one of the most popular releases this year.
Created by Sex and The City's Darren Star, the comedy-drama follows a young American girl who moves to Paris.
Later on, she finds out that the picturesque city may not be as dashing as she expected.
After a very successful season 1, will season 2 follow soon? Let's find out.
Netflix is yet to renew Emily In Paris for season 2 as of this writing. We know fans are already dying to get a season 2 announcement, especially with season 1 leaving Emily in disarray. However, it's good to keep in mind that the streaming giant often takes at least a month before renewing a show.
Netflix often examines a show's performance on the platform within the first 30 days since its premiere. The show barely spent two weeks on the platform since its release on October 2, 2020.
Despite the show raising French eyebrows, there's no denying that Emily In Paris has caught the viewers' attention. Hence, we're confident that season 2 announcements will be here very soon.
We're still waiting for the season 2 announcement, but creator Darren Star has already given us some hints should they receive the renewal soon.
“If we get picked up, I hope we’ll be back in Paris next spring, and things will ease up a little bit,” Darren said via Glamour. “I think hopefully we’ll be in a better place by next spring. I really hope so.”
Hopefully, the show gets the greenlight asap, and the team would be able to follow anticipated filming schedules so we could see fresh new episodes around the last quarter of 2021.
Emily In Paris follows Emily, a young American girl from Chicago who moves to France to pursue a career opportunity.
Her task is to bring an 'American point of view' to a French marketing firm, Savior.
Soon she finds out that the scenic city is not as warm as she thinks, and the people are not as receptive to her presence as she hoped to.
She's branded as an ignorant American who couldn't speak French. Her fastidious boss seems to disagree with everything she does and says.
Season one introduced us to Emily and all the awkwardness she had to face in the city of love, juggling her career, relationship, and friendship.
Luckily for Emily, her Parisian life's set to get better in the upcoming 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," says Darren via Oprah Magazine. "She'll have her feet on the ground a little more. She's making a life there."
We're also expecting to see more of Emily and Gabriel's blossoming love story after sharing an intimate moment towards the end of season 1.
Emily In Paris has generated a lot of buzz, both for the good and the bad reasons.
While girls drooled at Emily's OOTD or melted before Gabriel's gaze, some French people slammed the show for portraying 'outdated stereotypes.
Nevertheless, all of these contributed to the show's increase in viewership.
Nothing has been confirmed yet, but we're likely to see major cast reprise their roles for season 2.
The main cast includes Lily Collins for the titular role, Emily, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu as Sylvie Grateau, Ashley Park as Mindy Chen, Lucas Bravo as Gabriel, Samuel Arnold as Julien, Bruno Gouery as Luc, and Camille Razat as Camille among others.
