‘Emily in Paris’ has been renewed for a second season: here’s everything we know so far

Emily in Paris season 2

If you're finding yourself reading this article, then we can only assume you're one of the many people worldwide (whether you're admitting it, or not), who have sunk their teeth into the sugary and highly controversial Netflix series that is Emily in Paris. Following the experiences of American marketing executive, Emily Cooper, as she moves to – you guessed it – Paris, to join luxury firm Savoir; those of us who have accepted our love for the show are waiting eagerly for news of a season 2.

Now, the news we've all been waiting for has been confirmed. Emily in Paris has been confirmed for a second season, and we might just have to book a (future) trip to Paris to celebrate. The announcement that Netflix's wildly popular show would be picked up for a second season comes less than two months since the show hit our screens, confirming its success.

The cast shared the news with fans in the form of a fictional letter from Emily's boss Sylvie.

While we wait in anticipation for a release date, we've rounded up everything we know so far about the hit-series' second season – spoilers included.

When can we expect a season 2?

Although a release date for the second season of Emily in Paris is yet to be confirmed, Darren Star has definitely hinted that season 2 will be filled with opportunity for Emily's character to grow.

"I don't know about season two yet, but I think Emily has some surprising tough choices. 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 in the road and a lot of places to go," Star shared in the interview with E! News.

What will happen to Emily and Camille's friendship?

Her first real French BFF, Camille and Emily's friendship goes from strength to strength – that is, before the American realises she has feelings for her boyfriend, Gabriel. When speaking to Collider, actress Camille Razat shared that her character Camille will probably be more upset with Emily than Gabriel once she discovers their affair, "because she was so nice to her, and she just welcomed her. And in that matter, I think Camille will be mad for a little amount of time, but she really loves Emily."

"So she’s just going to, as an adult, just discuss that with her, and try to understand why they did this. And how are they going to manage this? Because obviously, I think Camille, anyways, wants to stay friends with Emily."

Although initially, Emily and Camille's relationship seems platonic, several fans have pointed out that there might be a big part of the story we could be missing. Lucas Bravo, the actor behind Gabriel hints at this theory, sharing with People, “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. “Anything could happen between the three of them. I think Darren wants this second season to be really open-minded.”

Will Emily choose Gabriel or Mathieu?

At the end of the season finale, we left our girl Emily in quite the dilemma – with a looming decision on her hands to choose between her neighbour and secret love interest, Gabriel, or her boyfriend Mathieu. While we all have differing opinions on her decision, there's no denying that Emily's situation is one we never want to be faced with. As it turns out, the show's cast and creators tend to agree.

"[Emily is going] to have a lot of complicated choices with a lot of the men in her life. Certainly with Gabriel, who’s been the primary relationship, but also her primary relationship is also with Camille, who she really became very good friends with — and I think Emily’s the kind of girl that would never want to betray a friend. So I think it’s given Emily a real moral dilemma," Star revealed to Collider.

"We haven’t really seen the potential of [Emily and Mathieu's] relationship yet. I think Emily’s is going to have some surprising choices to make next season."
