Oui, oui, we’re ready for Emily in Paris season 2 (and we don’t have to wait long). The Netflix romantic comedy has started filming in France — and this time, Emily (Lily Collins) will speak a little more French and “assimilate” more into Parisian culture, according to creator Darren Star. And he’s teased some “unexpected storylines” as far as Emily’s love life goes.
Earlier this year, Netflix revealed that Emily in Paris was the streamer’s most popular comedy in 2020, reaching 58 million households across the globe in its first 28 days. The show also generated a ton of buzz (not all positive) on social media, plus some Golden Globe and Emmy nominations.
The show centers on Emily Cooper, a 20something Chicago marketing manager who unexpectedly lands her dream job in Paris. She arrives, ready to revamp the social media strategy at a French luxury marketing firm, but finds strong opposition from her tough boss, Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu), and snobbish co-workers. It doesn’t help that she doesn’t speak French.
