Netflix’s lineup was topped off with a new romantic comedy series on October 2, 2020. At the time, Emily in Paris was the streaming service’s latest Original and kept subscribers quite busy. The series immediately grew into a huge success and was in Netflix’s top ten for weeks. A month later, in November, it then became clear that a second season would follow. In this article, you can read everything we already know about the second season of Emily in Paris.
In the first season of Emily in Paris, we were taken into the life of Emily, played by Lily Collins. The young American woman leaves her roots to work for a marketing company in France. However, Emily doesn’t speak a word of French and soon runs into the necessary cultural differences.
Maker Darren Star, also known for Sex and the City and Younger, among others, had a plan in his head for a sequel right before it was clear there would be one. “In the second season, she will be more a part of the world she lives in. She will be more of a resident of the city. She’ll have a little more footing, she’s really living there now.” So the big culture shock will be a thing of the past in Emily in Paris Season 2.
According to Collins (Emily), we might also learn more about her past in the second season. “In the first season we only had ten episodes to really get to know her new friends at work and who she meets outside of work. So I’m really looking forward to delving deeper into the backstories and more time file to mix the two groups of people she meets.” Although Collins then immediately indicated that she doesn’t know what exactly is in the scripts.
Cast of Emily in Paris Season 2
The second season of Emily in Paris means a return of the same cast. That means that we will at least see Lily Collins (Emily), Ashley Park (Mindy) and Lucas Bravo (Emily’s new love) back. The same goes for Emily’s colleagues Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, Samuel Arnold and Bruno Gouery.
