At the original time of publishing this season 2 preview, Emily in Paris has been available to stream on Netflix for a little under two weeks. In that time the Original series became the most popular series on Netflix in multiple regions before being dethroned by The Haunting of Bly Manor.
Despite a controversial start to life on Netflix, with many French critics calling out the series for its stereotyped portrayal of the French, Emily in Paris gained monumental coverage and fandom.
As of November 11th, the series had featured in the top 10 on Netflix US for a combined 29 days. In the UK, that number is even bigger with it still being featured in the top 10 list for 40 days consecutively.
Although, a second season may not be watched by many French subscribers.

What to expect from the second season of Emily in Paris
In an interview with Oprah Magazine, creator Darren Star gave some insight on what to expect from the second season of Emily in Paris:
In season 2, she’s [Emily] 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.
After the way the season ended, it definitely appears that Emily is enjoying her life in Paris.
Emily and Gabriel finally gave in to their attraction to each other, so expect to see their budding relationship explored in season 2. With Camille, Gabriel’s ex, still on the scene we can expect to see some potentially awkward moments.
We may also see some more of the supporting cast explored, as Star expressed in another interview with Vanity Fair.
Which cast members will be returning for season 2?
We can expect to see the following cast members return in season two:
- Lily Collins – Emily Cooper
- Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu – Sylvie Grateau
- Ashley Park – Mindy Chen
- Lucas Bravo – Gabriel
- Samuel Arnold – Julian
- Bruno Gouery – Luke
- Camille Razat – Camille
- William Abadie – Antione Lambert
When is the Netflix release date for Emily in Paris season 2?
To state the obvious Emily in Paris is filmed in Paris. This means the logistics of having an entire cast and crew film a television series in a separate country, in one of the busiest cities in the world, during a pandemic, is extremely challenging or nigh impossible.
Judging by the production, and release of the first season, we have a rough idea of when we could see a second season of Emily in Paris. Filming for the series took place in Paris in August 2019, with additional scenes filmed in Chicago in November. The series then dropped in October 2020, marking 14 months between the start of filming and the series release.
We’re currently predicting a late 2021 release date but there’s also the possibility it may not drop until early 2022 depending on production schedules but we’ll keep you posted.
