Emily Cooper’s Parisian adventure continues with a new season.
Netflix has announced that Emily in Paris season 2 will be released December 22, and dropped a new trailer. It’s plain to see that season 2 will also be filled with fabulous fashion and complicated romance
Season 2 picks up right after the end of season 1: Emily just slept with Gabriel, thinking he was leaving for Normandy in the morning. However, an investment from Emily’s Savoir client, Antione, keeps Gabriel in town. Combine that with Emily’s upcoming trip to Saint Tropez with Mathieu Cadault, and “her life is in chaos,” as creator Darren Star told Entertainment Weekly this month. “I don't think she's a person who's ever been involved in any sort of messy relationship. And the more she tries to control things, the more they actually get out of hand.”
However, Emily has developed some more maturity and familiarity with French culture in season 2. Star said, “In season 2, she’s going to be more of a part of the fabric of the world she’s living in. She’ll be more of a resident of the city. She’ll have her feet on the ground a little more. She’s making a life there.”
Emily’s life will only get more complicated as more characters are introduced into her love life. Lucien Laviscount, Jeremy O. Harris, and Arnaud Binard all joined the cast for season 2. Laviscount will play Alfie, an Englishman who refuses to engage with French culture or speak French. Harris will play a fashion designer, and Binard will be a party boy owner of a nightclub in Saint Tropez.
And that’s not all. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Lucas Bravo (who plays Gabriel) hinted at a possible relationship between Emily and Camille. He said that season 1 “planted a few seeds about different characters…Like Camille, when she kisses Emily on the mouth, and she’s like, ‘I’m not sorry.’ And then when they’re in bed, and I’m liking the picture, it’s all little seeds. Anything could happen between the three of them.”
Lily Collins also hinted at the possibility of a relationship with Camille, although she really doesn’t know what’s up next for her character’s love life. She said, “I don’t know what they’re writing right now, but I think it would be a little early for Emily to lock something in. I think she’s still exploring the prospects. Honestly, I think Emily doesn’t even know [what will happen], and that’s the beauty of the way that they write the show. She has yet to find all the qualities she maybe is looking for. But that being said, there is that connection with Gabriel, but now she has Camille in that love triangle, so I think there’s still experiences to be had, adventure to be had, and she’s still finding herself.”
The theme of seeking out new experiences seems to be the theme of season 2, as Sylvie tells Emily in the trailer, “If you're going to do Paris for one year, for God's sake, do it right.”
