Emily in Paris has been renewed for a second season, and all I can say is Je suis vraiment enthousiaste (I’m so excited)!!
The first season of Emily in Paris burst onto the scene at exactly the time when I was about at the end of the Netflix library. I had watched darn near everything available, and I decided to watch Emily in Paris on a whim.
Je suis si content de l’avoir fait (I’m so glad I did!!), because this show was exactly the quirky rom-com series that my soul needed at the time.
Netflix decided to renew the show for a second season, less than two months after the show premiered on the streaming network.
When Emily in Paris dropped, it was an instant success with online viewers. It even unexpectedly beat out Grey’s Anatomy and Criminal Minds for that same week!
The show also made the Nielsen’s Streaming Top 10 List — which is pretty huge.
If you haven’t seen the show, it is about a 20-something marketing executive who lucks into a position in one of her company’s newly acquired Paris divisions.
She doesn’t know how to speak the language, her new colleagues don’t like her, and she goes through a bit of culture shock, as she doesn’t quite know the French way of doing things. BUT, Emily eventually finds a couple friends, struggles with new romantic relationships, and learns to navigate her way through life in Paris.
The renewal of Emily in Paris was announced in a hilarious tongue-in-cheek letter that is supposed to be from Emily’s Parisian boss, Paris Sylvie Grateauk, to Emily’s American boss, Madeline Wheeler.

Nous sommes désolées! We are writing to regrettably inform you that Emily Cooper will need to remain in Paris for an extended period of time. Despite her overconfident manner and lack of prior experience in luxury goods marketing, she has nonetheless managed to charm some of our hard-to-impress clients during her short time at Savoir. Call it bonne chance, or American ingenuity – I’m leaning towards the former – her results are impressive.
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.
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.
There is no word yet on WHEN the second season of Emily in Paris is going to premier, but we will definitely keep you updated!
