She’s back for amour and coming in haute! Emily in Paris S2 to drop this December 22, on Netflix.
About Emily in Paris, S2:
Now more entrenched in her life in Paris, Emily’s getting better at navigating the city but still struggling with the idiosyncrasies of French life. After stumbling into a love triangle with her neighbor and her first real French friend, Emily is determined to focus on her work — which is getting more complicated by the day. In French class, she meets a fellow ex-pat who both infuriates and intrigues her.
The Emmy-nominated series, Emily In Paris, returns to Netflix this December. In 2020, Emily In Paris became the most-watched comedy series on Netflix, and for good reason! With her gorgeous outfits and her chaotic energy, not to exclude her steamy romance with Gabriel, Emily’s glamourous life seemed so much more interesting than ours! So what does Season 2 have in store for us? Here are a few reasons why this show should be on your priority list this December:
1. An Even More Glamorous Wardrobe
The first season had Emily in a series of regular, if not out-of-control, outfits. While some people may have disagreed and found the choices to be just a little over the top, we didn’t. Neither did the creators and the actors, it seems! Because it has been confirmed that Emily’s wardrobe this season will be full of the same over-the-top fashion pieces, and we are a hundred percent here for it! Paparazzi caught some shots of the cast while filming in July, you can catch a glimpse of some of the outfits here.
2. The Possibility of a Queer Relationship
There just might be a treat in store for the queer fans, and for the fans who already ship Camille and Emily. Lucas Bravo got the fans excited when he hinted at the possibility of a queer relationship in an interview with Cosmopolitan. His words were that the first season has "planted a few seeds about different characters." Now it gets interesting here because, if you remember, back in season one when Camille kisses Emily on the mouth, she goes, "I'm not sorry." And then when they post a picture together in bed, and he likes the picture, which sprouts a whole lot of seeds in fans' minds. According to him, "Anything could happen between the three of them. I think Darren wants this second season to be really open-minded. Even Lily Collins acknowledged this line of thought in her interview with Vogue U.K. Now let's just hold our breath and hope this turns out to be actually true!
3. Some New Faces in The Cast This Season
The handsome Lucien Laviscount will be joining the cast this season as yet another love interest for Emily. And he's just as much a Francophile as her, if not more! He will be playing Alfie, a Londoner who "refuses to speak French or immerse himself in French culture." We all love a good enemies-to-lovers trope, which is where Emily and Alfie's relationship seems to be headed towards.
Continuing this thread of an absolutely bonkers cast, Netflix also announced, back in May, that Jeremy O. Harris and Arnaud Binard will also guest star in the latest season. O. Harris, the writer of the movie Zola, will be playing an iconic fashion designer, Pierre Cadault's former protege and now bitter rival. We also have Arnaud Binard in a flashy role as Laurent G, "the charming and gregarious owner of a popular Saint Tropez nightclub."
4. A Little More Background Into Emily’s Life
It seems like we will be getting more insight into Emily's life prior to her coming to Paris. The season 2 script might feature some flashbacks from as far back as Emily's childhood! The Emily of season 2 appears to have developed some much-needed maturity, hinting that this season will be stronger than the last. It simply makes it all the more exciting to be able to dig deep and get some insight into the two vastly different worlds she has experienced and the groups of people that she has met and will meet in the future.
5. A Little More French
Last season, Emily was a clueless American who arrived in Paris, with pre-conceived notions about the city; just like everyone else. To that effect, she only found herself alienated because she didn't do her homework before coming. Luckily, now it sounds like she has been forced to learn a few more words in the local language. French is regarded as the most romantic language in the world and for good reason! We definitely can't wait to hear more French being spoken and to watch Emily try really hard to immerse herself in the French culture and language.
We don't know about you, but we are definitely super excited about this new season and will be adding it to our Netflix alerts so we don't accidentally miss it. Here's to hoping we get a 3rd season after this one!
Au revoir, dear readers!
