Netflix says oui.
Minor spoilers ahead.
Netflix’s Emily in Paris is the frilly, sexy, and ridiculous escape the Internet can’t stop talking about.
From the creator of Sex and the City and Younger (Darren Star), the comedy series follows Emily, played by Lily Collins, a rising marketing whiz who uproots from Chicago to Paris for an unexpected new role. She eventually obtains the social media following to document the move, and the vibrant wardrobe to dress for it, but she doesn’t speak a single word of French. As she stumbles her way through her posh, icy workplace and her new Parisian stomping grounds, she makes some friends along the way, like Mindy (Ashley Park), the stylish au pair; Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), the dreamy chef who lives downstairs; and a handful of French lovers.
By the end of the 10-episode series—spoiler alert!—Emily and Gabriel finally spend the night together after he breaks things off with his girlfriend, Camille (Camille Razat). But, they can’t stay together because he’s leaving for Normandy to start his own restaurant. In the final scenes, though, the plans change and Gabriel is able to continue working at his bistro in Paris, which is great news for Emily … until Camille finds out and seems to want to reunite with her old flame.
“Can we talk?” she texts Emily in a cliffhanger ending. Uh oh. Where can the story continue on from here? Here’s what we know so far.
Netflix has officially renewed Emily in Paris for a second season.
The streaming company cheekily announced the news on November 11 with Savoir (the company Emily works for) letterhead, featuring a note from Emily’s boss, Sylvie Grateau (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu).
“We hope that by extending her time in Paris, Emily will further the relationships she has already made, delve deeper into our culture, and perhaps pick up a few words of French,” she wrote.
The cast also virtually reunited to break the news in a joint video.
Darren Star already has plans for what’s next.
Even before Netflix officially renewedthe series, Darren Star was brainstorming what’s next for Emily and co.
“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.”
Collins, who is also a producer on the series, told Vanity Fair that Netflix is waiting to see how the show is received after the premiere.
Star also told E! News, “I don’t know about season two yet, but I think Emily has some surprising tough choices. The show’s so much about the culture undermining her expectations of how things are and how things seem. And everything will not be as it seems. It’s always about challenging her American worldview. We certainly have a lot of forks in the road and a lot of places to go.”
