The cruel irony of enjoying Emily in Paris in the middle of a global pandemic is that the romantic comedy from Sex and City creator Darren Star, which stars Lily Collins as the titular Emily, will instantly make you want to book a one-way ticket to France.

But so long as transatlantic flights are out of the question for most, the Netflix series—with its gorgeous shots inside of the Palais Garnier, on the banks of the Seine, and of course, in front of the sparkling Eiffel Tower—is more than enough to satisfy a little wanderlust from the comfort of your own living room.

It's an extremely bingeable series, so if you've blown through the first season, and are wondering if Emily's Parisian adventures will get a second chapter, here's what we know so far.


Netflix has confirmed the show will be back for another chapter.

The streaming giant confirmed the news that Emily in Paris would be returning with a playful Twitter post. Watch the video here:

Season one does end of a cliffhanger.

No spoilers here, but when Emily and co. return to the small screen, there is plenty of story left to tell.

“The first season, we only had ten episodes to really explore her new friends at work and who she meets outside of work, so I’m excited to dive deeper into those back stories and spend more tie intermingling the two groups of people that she meets…” Collins said in a recent interview about next season's plot. “Now that we’ve seen her with all these ‘Parisisms’, maybe we get to actually get to a bit more of her backstory, and experience that with some of the other characters. But you always know with Emily you’re going to have humor and you’re going to have adventure. There’s going to be no shortage of that coming up—and great fashion.”

It's unclear how the pandemic will impact production on a future season.

Season one of Emily in Paris was shot entirely on location in Paris, and new episodes of the series will depend on the cast's ability to travel and work in Europe.

But, Ashley Park, who plays Mindy in the series, is excited at the prospect of more for her character. Prior to the Netflix announcement, she told T&C that she "would love for there to be another season."

She added, "The way that season one ends, after you watch the 10 episodes, you're like, 'How are there not already 10 more episodes?!'"

And Star is optimistic that filming will resume soon. “If we get picked up, I hope we’ll be back in Paris next spring and things will ease up a little bit,” he told Glamour in October. “I think hopefully we’ll be in a better place by next spring. I really hope so.”

Lily Collins also spoke with Deadline about wanting to get back to set.

“We’re aiming to hopefully be going back soon. Hopefully in spring time. We’re trying to move forward. Again everything is [COVID-19] pending," she said. "When we got confirmed for season 2 it made us all even more excited and even more anxious to get back. Of course, there are so many regulations right now and we want to be safe, but we want to get back.”

The show picked up multiple Golden Globes nominations.

It's nominated for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy, and Collins received an individual nod in the Best Actress in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical category. But the acclaim is a bit controversial. While extremely popular, the first season wasn't exactly a critical darling, and some have argued that other, snubbed series are perhaps more deserving of a nomination.
