There’s still time to catch up on Season 1! Netflix’s wacky comedy is back for a second season. It’s said to have more fun, more fashion, and more faux pas this time around, but let’s hope it’s not forgettable. The idea of an American moving to France for employment appears to be a one-and-done proposition at first inspection, so it will be fascinating to see if the next attempt is as hilarious as the first.
When the first trailer for Emily in Paris, a new Netflix series, was released in September 2020, the internet declared it to be your next TV obsession almost immediately. Emily in Paris was the next best thing to savoring a croissant and a coffee along the Seine in a designer dress rather than the same pair of sweatpants during a year without much, if any, travel or life as we knew it during a year without much, if any, travel or life as we knew it. Which is why according to actor Lily Collins, season two would not address the coronavirus outbreak.
Emily In Paris, a hit Netflix romantic comedy-drama developed by writer, director, and producer Darren Star, who also created the hit comedy-drama Sex and the City, premiered in October 2020. Collins discussed the upcoming second season with Variety, and how, unlike other dramas set in the present day, Emily In Paris season two will overlook the epidemic.
“Season 1 allowed us an escapism when it came out that it felt it was something that needed to continue — not addressing it because it brings a sense of escapism and joy and laughter in a time that we need it the most.” Collins stated.
Emily In Paris’ producers appear to be eager to continue delivering that escapism that Collins mentioned, which is a decision that most fans will undoubtedly appreciate. It’s unclear whether the show will continue to disregard the epidemic and its consequences in future seasons (assuming there are any). Emily In Paris, on the other hand, is clearly taking steps to appeal to a broad audience and maintain the feel-good aspect in the face of global events.
Season Two, Episode One will be available on Netflix Dec. 22, 2021
