Emily will remain in Paris, apparently, after Netflix renewed the romantic comedy series for a second season.
Netflix announced the renewal on Wednesday, November 11 via Instagram and a fictional letter from Emily’s boss, Sylvie Grateau, indicating that Emily’s time in Paris would need to be extended, despite her “overconfident manner” and “lack of prior experience in luxury goods marketing.”
“She has nonetheless managed to charm some of our hard-to-impress clients during her short time at Savoir,” Grateau wrote.
No premiere date, official cast, or plot details have been confirmed.
Emily In Paris was created, written, and executive produced by Darren Star (Sex in the City, Younger). It stars Lily Collins 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 – and of course, she meets resistance, work colleagues, and new romances.
The first season ended with a cliffhanger, with Emily finding herself in an even stickier romantic situation than before.
Collins herself is a producer of the series. Ashley Park, Philippine Leroy Beaulieu, Lucas Bravo, Samuel Arnold, Camille Razat, Bruno Gouery, Kate Walsh, William Abadie, and Arnaud Viard also starred on the show.
The first season, which was filmed around France and in Paris, premiered on Netflix on October 2, 2020 and was met with criticism, particularly over its portrayal of Parisians and the City of Lights. – Rappler.com
