Emily In Paris creator already has *a lot* of ideas for season two
‘In terms of a second season, there are certainly a lot of roads to follow’
If you love typical trash TV, you’ve probably got into Emily In Paris on Netflix. It’s been heavily criticised for being cliche and stereotypical, but the easy viewing and delightful shots of Paris mean we’re still going to binge watch it as soon as possible. Meaning, you’re more likely that not already pining for an Emily In Paris season two.
Whilst the show hasn’t yet been confirmed by Netflix as having a season two on the way, the producer and creator already has plans for new episodes and Lily Collins (who is a producer and plays Emily) is keen too. Netflix is still waiting to see how the show performs in its first couple of weeks – but it’s gone straight into the top 10 list worldwide and has got everyone talking – so it’s looking very good.
In the meantime, here’s what’s been said about a possible Emily In Paris season two.
The show creator has said season two of Emily In Paris will have ‘surprising relationship avenues’ and Emily will be ‘making a life there’
Without any spoilers, let’s just say season one of the series ended on a cliffhanger. So it’s only fair that it can’t end there, right? Lily Collins has previously said she “would love nothing more than to be able to go back to Paris and do [a new season]”.
In an interview, she added that the writers have already found they had so many ideas some had to kept on the back-burner. She said: “There were so many situations that we were like, ‘Okay, write that down. That’s going to happen in season two’. Also, there were many experiences where we were like, ‘Does Emily go abroad? Do you think Emily takes the Eurostar and hops out and goes to Belgium or she goes to London?’ That would be so much fun.”
Speaking to OprahMag, producer and creator Darren Star said there’s much more to come for Emily. He said: “In season two, 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.”
Speaking to TVLine, Star added that there’s more to come in the triangle of Emily, Gabriel and Cami in new episodes. He said: “Nothing is sort of exactly as it seems to [Emily]. And I think a lot of her ideas about life are constantly tested. And they will be next season, as well.
“What happens in the next chapter, I think, can be a real exploration of how does the relationship between these three characters evolve. That, to me, is such a fun thing to explore in season two, because these are not Americans. They’re French people. To me, a big part of the show is looking at everything through a different lens. Season two will open up some interesting and surprising relationship avenues.”
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Star said it’s not just the main characters who have more to show. He said: “We have a great world of characters that we’ve established. I’d like to explore so much more of the supporting cast, like Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, who plays Emily’s boss. I think we’ve just scratched the surface of who she is and what makes her tick. I certainly have a lot of thoughts about where I’d like to see things going, and I know that there’s a lot of story to tell.… I don’t believe, as an American, you’re ever at home in Paris. In terms of a second season, there are certainly a lot of roads to follow.”
