It doesn’t take long to realize that Emily in Paris (Lily Collins) has no idea what she is doing. The Netflix show follows a distraught young American who enters a culture she has made no effort to familiarize herself with; when she first meets her downstairs neighbor, Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), he tells her he’s a Norman, and this woman says bluntly, “Oh, I know this beach; Save Private Ryan, no? really Do you want the French to think that you are an ignorant American who draws the story of his country from a 1998 Tom Hanks film? Maybe check with yourself before referring to a WWII battle that killed thousands of people.
Despite Emily’s blunders, you have to admit her trip is comparable to any American who studied abroad in Europe when he was young and stupid. Yes, Emily is meant to be a mature Chicago woman with mastery and disdain for Lou Malnotti’s deep dish. But she’s leading a glamorous life in Paris in 2020, while the rest of us are given fall-themed masks provided to us by Instagram. As my friend Laura put it on Twitter, “Emily in Paris, let’s stay in hell”.

Not only does this tweet describe the experience of watching the show, but at the same time it admits that the show is our best option to escape real life in 2020. Emily can run around Paris and eat out; having awkward and inappropriate interactions with your boss; and hit many mediocre carefree men in the world. She doesn’t need to quarantine for two weeks before going to her parents’ house for the weekend or wearing a mask because she’s making one of her dozens of terrible choices. Emily is free to be an ignorant American in Paris, and that’s reason enough to watch this show.
Now the real question is, when will there be more?
Season 2 has yet to be confirmed.
As Vulture Notes, it’s not really up to Netflix to give the go-ahead for a second season of the show. It was originally developed for TVLand, then transferred to Paramount Network. ViacomCBS made a deal with Netflix to stream the show there, but as Good Housekeeping reports, the power of renewal might reside with ViacomCBS, not Netflix.
As for Collins, she’s ready to dive into next season. “We are all extremely grateful,” she told HarpersBAZAAR.com. “And the cast and crew, we’re really hoping to get the green light for season 2.”
But there is hope, and the storyline could be refreshing and bizarre.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Bravo hinted at the possibility of a second season. He said the first season had “planted some seeds on different characters.” This is where it gets interesting: “Like Camille, when she kisses Emily on the mouth, and she says, ‘I’m not sorry.’ And then when they’re in bed, and I like the photo, they’re all little seeds, ”he explained.“ Anything can happen between the three of them. I think Darren wants this second season to be really open-minded. “
In an interview with Vogue UK, Collins said, “there are tons of little moments where you say to yourself ‘… does Camille love Emily? “You can’t really have 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 bond [with Gabriel], and I don’t want to hurt you, but… Oh my God! So, you know what, this is really confusing. I feel like the next season is only going to create more love triangle drama, although maybe Emily will have a little more control over the situation… Or maybe not. “
I don’t know about you, reader, but I really wasn’t sorry when that Emily-Camille kiss happened. Are Bravo and Collins suggesting the show could take on a polyamory plot? Emily said, “I generally prefer men.” So there is some room to mix things up, Em? Dear god, hopefully.
Escape is the call, after all.
Well done, who said Cosmo he is fully aware that French critics panicked this show, sees the value in his escape. And that could very well mean that we will have more.
“People want to travel,” he says. “Reality is so tough these days, and we’ve been through such a tough time that I think the show is so light, so colorful, fashion, romance, travel,” the actor said. “Darren Star’s vision is so colorful and vivid and funny. People needed something to escape.”
It’s pretty clear we’re going to need something light, fun, and meaningless to distract us for a while. It could just as well be Emily going around Paris!
Emily will grow up a bit in season 2.
If and when Emily returns, creator Darren Star says she’ll be more settled into life in Paris than she is now. “In Season 2, she will be more of the fabric of the world she lives in. She will be more of a city resident,” Star told OprahMag.com. “She will have her feet on the ground a little more. She makes her life there.”
Does that mean it will be less of a nuisance for Americans? Time will tell us!
That is going to take time.
Emily in Paris was actually filmed in Paris, and with the pandemic erasing the works of literally everything, that could mean a delay in filming for a second season. Some casts are starting to film in small quarantine pods, but time will tell if Collins et al. do the same.
Until then, bye, Emily! Read a history book!
