Lily told Deadline that she’s honored to be part of a project that “provided people with some much-needed relief during a trying time.” “Not only did playing Emily teach me more about myself, but also about the world around me. I couldn’t be happier to be back in Paris for Season 2 to expand upon those lessons, to continue to grow, and learn even more about this beautiful city and all of its characters with Emily,” she said. 

The romantic comedy series follows Lily as Emily, an ambitious 20-something marketing executive from Chicago who flies to Paris after her American company acquires a French luxury marketing company. She’s flown in to revamp their social media strategy. Emily struggles to assimilate even as she tries to forge relationships inside and outside work. 

The first season, which debuted in October 2020, was watched over by 58 million fans and became Netflix’s most-watched comedy series of 2020 . The series, despite being met by criticism, received two Golden Globes nominations.

A release date for the second season has yet to be announced.  - Rappler.com
