We can't wait: the hit series is going into the next round and we have all the information you need to know about the new season!
It was the most popular comedy series on Netflix of 2020: "Emily in Paris" polarized like no other. Critics described the show as "shallow" and "clichéd", the Mega success remained anyway not from. Wonderful Paris shots, a personable cast and great fashion moments make the series a hit.
The first season came in October 2020, when most of us were lounging on the couch in jogging suits due to the pandemic. What better way to counter the lockdown blues than a relaxed, light series that reminded of traveling and comes along with stylish looks? Just turn on Netflix and dream away. Pure escape from reality.
Darren Star, the creator of the show, is responsible for cult series like "Sex and the City" or "902010". Patricia Field was also involved behind the scenes - she is the styling genius behind the SATC looks and the reason that Carrie Bradshaw is still one of the greatest fashion icons of our time.
What happened in season 1?
Beware, spoilers: Emily Cooper, played by Phil Collins daughter Lily Collins, is a young marketing manager from Chicago who spontaneously takes a job in Paris due to an unforeseeable event. Lack of knowledge of French and her lively, over-motivated nature make her that Entry into the new day-to-day worknot exactly easy. Your boss Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) is anything but enthusiastic about the new employee and makes no secret of her Aversion to Emily.
Outside of the office, however, Emily quickly finds friends: the carefree Mindy, who fled from Shanghai to Paris to escape the expectations of her wealthy family and now makes her way as a babysitter. Also the casual Camille, a true French girl who works in an art gallery.
Ashley Park, who embodies Mindy, is best known for her appearances in Broadway musicals such as "Mean Girls" and "Mamma Mia". Camille actress Camille Razat previously had a few roles in French films - "Emily in Paris" is her first international production and at the same time her breakthrough.
Emily's neighbor Gabriel also quickly becomes an important one Part of their new life. The handsome chef (played by Lucas Bravo, who, in addition to acting, also modeled for Chanel, among others) lives in the apartment below - there is a lot of radio between the two. What Emily doesn't know at first: Gabriel is Camille's boyfriend - of course, emotional chaos is inevitable.
The open end of the first season indicated a sequel - which Netflix officially confirmed relatively quickly. The production company shared a letter on Instagram from Emily's boss, Sylvie, in which she writes that Emily will have to stay in Paris a little longer. Mon dieu, we are excited!
We recommend taking a closer look at the styles of the individual "Emily" actors. Field manages to perfectly match the personalities of the individual characters to capture their fashionable expressions. This is what makes the show so relevant to the fashion industry. Emily's unusual ensembles are peppered with great designer pieces - sometimes even from Field's private wardrobe.
Girly and colorful she runs through them Streets of Paris. She loves patterns, dresses and hats. From bucket hats to berets, everything is included. But not only Emily, but also the supporting actresses are always fashionable. Sylvie is sophisticated, her looks are elegant and figure-hugging. Mindys are colorful, unusual, and resemble Emily's. Camille is the cool girl next door. Muted colors, stylish, french. But the men are also dressed very cool - we especially like the office looks of Emily's work colleague Julian (Samuel Arnold).
What we know about Season 2 so far:
Darren Star stated in an interview with Oprah Daily that the cast would remain the same for the second season. Seemingly there are a few newcomers We can look forward to: Alfie, a sarcastic but charming bank clerk from London, Gregory Elliott Dupree, a young fashion designer and former protégé of Pierre Cadault (we already know him from season 1) and Laurent G, a nightclub owner from St. Tropez. Star also reveals that Make Emily settle in even better becomes: "The city becomes her home … she builds a life there."
Part of the new episodes shouldn't take place in Paris, but at the Cote d'azur, to be more precise, play in St. Tropez. What ends up with Emily there is still unclear. In any case, we are getting ready for bikinis, mini dresses and a huge portion of beach glam. Darren Star told Vanity Fair that, among other things, the film was shot in a luxury hotel that was only open to the crew at the time of filming. "The Four Season’s Cap Ferrat is probably one of the most glamorous places in the world! It was really surreal, "said Star.
We're also excited to see how it is between Emily, Camille and Gabrielgoes on. At the moment there is emotional chaos, but no arguments - most of it is still unsaid. This could change soon. "I honestly don't know if Camille knows what's going on between Emily and Gabriel," Collins told British Vogue. "There are a lot of little moments on the show that make you wonder if Camille even likes Emily. You're not exactly sure […] It's really confusing. I have a feeling the next season will even more love triangle drama give. Although Emily may have a better grip on the situation … Or maybe not."
