Emily in Paris debuted in October 2020 and immediately landed in Netflix's Top 10 list. It also generated a ton of buzz and criticism on social media, some positive and some negative. The show received several surprise Golden Globe nominations, including Best Actress for Collins.

The Netflix Original comedy-drama series created by Sex and the City creator Darren Star. One of many, Darren Star is also an executive producer on the series, with production for the Original handled by his own company, Darren Star Productions.

On November 11th, 2020 Netflix confirmed that Emily in Paris would be getting another season. In the video posted to various social platforms, the cast comes together saying the word “Deux” which is French for two.

Emily in Paris Season 2: Release date

Due to the Covid Pandemic, the filming for the second season was postponed, which will resume only after May 3rd, 2021, as reported by Darren Star. If the pandemic doesn’t create any more troubles and the proposed plan is executed, the filming might be wrapped up by July 2021, after which the post-production will start. Calculating everything, we assume that the show might hit Netflix by early 2022, according to Oracle Globe.

Emily in Paris Season 2: Plot

Emily in Paris season 2 should pick up where season 1 left off. Emily had finally earned her boss Sylvie's respect, thanks to the successful Pierre Cadault fashion show, and saved her job in Paris, said Tom's Guide.

But her love life became even more of a complicated mess. To recap: Emily was caught in a love triangle with her hot downstairs neighbor, chef Gabriel, and his girlfriend Camille — who just happened to befriend Emily, unaware of the growing chemistry between the other two. Meanwhile, Emily had several men circling her, including her flirtatious client Antoine and the fashion businessman Mathieu Cadault.

In the finale, Gabriel broke up with Camille so he could move to Normandy to open his own restaurant. Emily blew off a trip to St. Tropez with Mathieu to say goodbye to Gabriel, and the two ended up in bed together. The next morning, she discovered Antoine was investing in Gabriel's Paris restaurant, so Gabriel wasn't leaving after all. Camille texted Emily about the news, asking if they could talk. So, what's in store for season 2? As creator Darren Star told TVLine, "What happens in the next chapter, I think, can be a real exploration of how does the relationship between these three characters evolves... Season 2 will open up some interesting and surprising relationship avenues."

The show received a ton of flack for Emily's naivete and complete lack of language skills. In season 2, Star told OprahMag.com that Emily will grow up a bit. "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. She'll have her feet on the ground a little more. She's making a life there."

Let's hope she learns more than the word for "two."

Emily in Paris Season 2: Production status

Since season 1 was filmed in the City of Lights, production could be delayed because of travel restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic. Still, Darren is crossing his fingers that the cast and crew will be able to safely return to Paris in the near future for season 2, cited by Good Housekeeping.

“If we get picked up, I hope we’ll be back in Paris next spring and things will ease up a little bit,” he told Glamour in October. “I think hopefully we’ll be in a better place by next spring. I really hope so.”

Following Emily in Paris's Golden Globes nomination, Lily spoke with Deadline about the next season and she's also optimistic about returning to set.

“We’re aiming to hopefully be going back soon. Hopefully in springtime. We’re trying to move forward. Again everything is [COVID-19] pending," she told the outlet. "When we got confirmed for season 2 it made us all even more excited and even more anxious to get back. Of course, there are so many regulations right now and we want to be safe, but we want to get back.”

At the original time of publishing this season 2 preview, Emily in Paris has been available to stream on Netflix for a little under two weeks. In that time the Original series became the most popular series on Netflix in multiple regions before being dethroned by The Haunting of Bly Manor.

Despite a controversial start to life on Netflix, with many French critics calling out the series for its stereotyped portrayal of the French, Emily in Paris gained monumental coverage and fandom. Darren Cross, the creator of the show, shrugged off these criticisms and just said he was glad people were watching the show.
