And will we be going back to Paris for another crazy season?
*Major spoilers for season 1 of Emily in Paris below!*
Here's everything you need to know about Emily in Paris season 2.
Have any official pictures of Emily in Paris season 2 been released?
Fans of the show got a sneak peek at what's to come in a series of pics posted to the official Emily in Paris Instagram account. The post was captioned, "more looks, more Emily, more PARIS!!! Season 2 first look photos are giving us everything 😍."
The first picture featured Emily, Mindy, and Camille as they stared off into the distance rocking the chicest ensembles. Other shots included Emily talking on a video chat and her standing in front of the Eiffel Tower with Alfie. These sneak peeks have us so excited for season two. We can hardly wait!
Are there any behind-the-scenes pics?
There were tons of pictures taken by photographers as the cast and crew filmed season two in Paris and the South of France. As per usual, Emily was serving the fashion looks she's become synonymous with.
Was season two filming affected by the COVID-19 pandemic?
Season one of Emily in Paris was released in October 2020, at the height of the pandemic. With stay-at-home mandates and international travel restrictions becoming a worldwide new normal, Emily in Paris star Ashley Park opened up about what it was like filming season two in a foreign country during a global pandemic.
"We just can't even believe that we got to go back to Paris and we actually finished filming the whole season. It was very ... it was a lot," she in an interview with People. "We were going into a country that was still on lockdown. I think we were just happy that we finished the second season, everybody was safe and we finished the entire thing."
Are there any new characters?
As Emily continues to make her way through Paris in season two, new faces are joining in on the fun, including a new love interest that will certainly stir things up.
TVLine has announced former Katy Keene star Lucien Laviscount will play Alfie, "a sarcastic and charming cynic who refuses to speak French or immerse himself in French culture. He and Emily have an antagonist relationship that evolves into something more as the season progresses."
Meanwhile, Jeremy O. Harris will be playing Gregory Elliott Dupree, "an iconic fashion designer and former protégé of Pierre Cadault. With larger-than-life style and personality, Gregory always travels with a collection of gorgeous clothes and gorgeous men. Pierre and Gregory were close, until Gregory’s unexpected and dramatic exit from the atelier left them bitter rivals."
Arnaud Binard will play Laurent G, "he charming and gregarious owner of a popular Saint Tropez nightclub. A party boy who never grew up, Laurent agrees to promote one of Emily’s brands. But Emily soon learns that his connection to Savoir is more complicated than marketing."
With so much drama already, we can't wait to see how these new characters shake things up even further.
Has Emily in Paris season 2 wrapped filming?
Time to say bonjour once again to Paris! Emily in Paris officially wrapped production on season 2 and the cast was super excited to film together again. Netflix released a video revealing that filming began in the city of lights on May 4, based on a letter from Sylvie.
"Je serai brève. We are writing to inform you that Emily Cooper's new work permit has been approved with a start date of May 3, 2021," the letter read. "As per our prior correspondence, she is an asset to SAVOIR and we hope she continues to have impact with our clients who are very particular about the results they expect from our agency."
Thankfully, production on season 2 went smoothly. According to a photo posted to Lily Collins' Instagram, filming wrapped as of August 4, 2021. In the snap, Lily poses with her "partner in crime," Ashley Park, who plays Mindy on the show.
Since filming wrapped on schedule, we can most likely expect the next season to drop on Netflix in 2022.
Is Emily in Paris season 2 happening?
"We hope that by extending her time in Paris, Emily will further the relationships she has already made, delve deeper into our culture, and perhaps pick up a few words of basic French," Sylvie wrote in a letter. "We will work in conjunction with you on applying for a work permit on her behalf to prolong her time here. We love having Emily in Paris! But please don’t let her know that."
Fans will get the chance to go back to the City of Lights with Emily again as she continues to work for Savoir and find out who she really is supposed to be with in Paris.
When will Emily in Paris season 2 be released?
At their annual TUDUM fan event on September 25, 2021, Netflix officially announced that season 2 of Emily in Paris will hit the platform on December 22, 2021. The series' official Instagram account also dropped another teaser trailer the same day. "Your French holiday awaits!" the end of the clip reads.
Will Emily have to choose between Gabriel and Mathieu next season?
Season one's major cliffhanger left fans wondering which guy she would pick: Gabriel or Mathieu. While we certainly have our own opinions on the matter, the cast and creators also have their own idea on how it will all go down.
"[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," creator Darren Star told 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."
He also noted that Gabriel's new deal with Antoine might cause some trouble between him and everyone else.
"I think that Antoine is an untrustworthy guy and his motives…I don’t trust him. I think it’s a dangerous combination working with Gabriel," he said.
Speaking about Gabriel, if you're hoping for more of his relationship with Camille, it looks like they might have to go back to the beginning to work things out.
"I think in his mind, yes, I think he’s broken up with Camille. They’ve been fighting a lot lately and he feels very emasculated by the fact that her family wants to help him. And he always wanted to be that self-made chef, and he’s been feeling so little for so long that, now that they have broken up, I don’t think he wants to get back to that, or at least they deserve to have a conversation about it. I think he’s really drawn to Emily and all the opportunities that are coming with her," star Lucas Bravo told Collider.
How will Camille react to Emily and Gabriel?
The two BFFs have laid on the same bed, (accidentally) shared a kiss, and walked the streets of Paris together, but will Camille and Emily still be close after the news of what went down with her and Gabriel is revealed?
"I think he didn’t properly broke [sic] up with me, which is a problem. Which is not cool. And I think he needs to see me face-to-face, and tell me why he’s leaving me. And if he’s really truly leaving me, we understand that we have an issue together," Camille Razat told Collider. "He needs to tell me properly. He needs to end it properly."
"I think that Camille may be more upset with Emily. 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," she continued. "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."
What will Emily in Paris season 2 be about?
There's no doubt that we'll be seeing more of Emily as she tries to balance her brand new life in Paris with all the craziness as Savoir. Not only does she have a lot of work to do to prove Sylvie that she has what it takes to work there, but her relationship with Mathieu might also make things a bit complicated.
Also, who can forget Gabriel and Camille. Antoine revealed that he purchased the restaurant for Gabriel so he can stay in Paris. Talk about awkward, especially since they just had sex together. And to make things even crazier, Camille sent a text to Emily with the good news followed by a "Can we talk?" message. Does she know what went down? Or does she just want to talk to her American BFF over trying to find a way to get back with Gabriel?
Series creator Darren Star gave us a big hint in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
"I think they had a really wonderful moment together, but what's the intention? That the idea that Gabriel thinking this was a farewell. But I don't think Gabriel would have split up with his girlfriend if he wasn't moving away. There's no way Emily would have been with Gabriel thinking that he was still with Camille. So I think that the question is where does it go from here? Where Emily is with Gabriel is really unexpected. She's left at a very unexpected place," he said. "I think that [Emily and Mathieu's] relationship is something that's right now. As far as he's concerned, he's committed to full steam ahead, he revealed."
Looks like we're going to have to wait until season two to find out who she picks.
