Is Season 2 confirmed?
On November 11, Netflix confirmed the renewal of the second instalment of Emily in Paris.
Before the official confirmation news, creator Darren Star told E! News: “I think Emily has some surprising tough choices.” he resumed, “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 on the road and a lot of places to go.”
When is Emily in Paris Season 2 releasing?
Production kicked off in April in the south of France. Darren Star (via Vanity Fair) said: “We took over what is probably one of the most glamorous places in the world, the Four Seasons’ Cap Ferrat hotel, where we were staying and filming.”
He resumed, “The hotel was essentially closed except for us. We had our writers room in a villa on the property, so it actually was surreal—everything in France was shut down at the time.”
On August 4, 2021 filming officially wrapped. Given how the show finished filming so quickly and yet Netflix has not made any official announcement regarding the release of the second season. Nonetheless, we expect to see season 2 arrive at the end of 2021 or in early 2022.
The cast of Emily in Paris Season 2
The cast members for season 2 will remain the same as the previous season including Lily Collins (as Emily Cooper), Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu (as Sylvie), Ashley Park (as Mindy Chen), Lucas Bravo (as Gabriel), Samuel Arnold (as Julien), Bruno Gouery (as Luc), Camille Razat (as Camille), Kate Walsh (as Madeline Wheeler), Arnaud Viard (as Paul Brossard), Jean-Christophe Bouvet (as Pierre Cadault), and Charles Martins (as Mathieu Cadault).
William Abadie (as Antoine Lambert) is promoted to be a regular cast member of the series. Whereas some new cast members have been added. They are: Lucien Laviscount (as Alfie),Jeremy O. Harris (as Gregory Elliott Dupree), Arnaud Binard (as Laurent G), Lee Aaron Rosen (as Pete Dalrymple), and Maja Simonsen (as Juliana).
In season 1, we got to see Emily being clueless around Paris and season 2 will bring us more actual plot. Star Emily Collins told Deadline, “The first season, we only had ten episodes to really explore her new friends at work and who she meets outside of work, so I’m excited to dive deeper into those backstories and spend more time intermingling the two groups of people that she meets.” She resumed, “Now that we’ve seen her with all these ‘Parisisms,’ maybe we get to get to a bit more of her backstory, and experience that with some of the other characters.”
In a chat with Cosmopolitan, Bravo dropped few hints that there’s a high chance to see a queer relationship in the upcoming season. He mentioned that the previous season has “planted a few seeds about different characters.”
He continued: “Like Camille when she kisses Emily on the mouth, and she’s like, ‘I’m not sorry.’ And then when they’re in bed, and I’m liking the picture, it’s all little seeds,” he explained. “Anything could happen between the three of them. I think Darren wants this second season to be really open-minded.”
Also in an interview with Vogue U.K, star Lily Collins explained, “There are tons of little moments where you’re like, ‘…Does Camille like Emily?’ You can’t really get a vibe, and I feel like that ambiguity is what keeps Emily intrigued. I think anyone in that position would be like, you’re my friend, but now I have this romantic connection [with Gabriel], and I don’t want to hurt you, but… Oh my God! So, you know what, it’s really confusing. I feel like the next season will only create more love triangle drama, although maybe Emily will have a little bit of a stronger handle on the situation.”
