What will happen in Emily in Paris season 2?

Season 1 saw Emily, an ambitious twenty-something marketing executive from Chicago, unexpectedly land her dream job at the Savoir Agency in Paris, where she is tasked with revamping their social media strategy. 

Viewers saw Emily's new life in Paris filled with intoxicating adventures and surprising challenges as she juggled winning over her work colleagues, making friends, and navigating new romances. 

Season 2 sees Emily more entrenched in her life in Paris. She’s getting better at navigating the city, but still struggling with the idiosyncrasies of French life. After stumbling into a love triangle with her neighbour, Gabriel, and his girlfriend Camille, she’s determined to focus on her work.

But it’s not going to be easy.

“Emily has to make a very distinct separation between her personal life and her professional life,” says Collins of season 2. “Camille is one of her closest friends in Paris, and she’s also a colleague and client at Savoir. 

“Pursuing Gabriel would potentially interfere with both a friendship and her career, which continues to be extremely important to Emily.”

Also important to Emily this season is Alfie (Lucien Laviscount), a British expat she meets in French class. 

“[He] comes from London and unlike Emily is totally disinterested in Paris,” says series creator Darren Star. “He really doesn’t want to be here, doesn’t find the country appealing, and is only here for his job. When they meet in French class, they’re really opposites, but they’re still both outsiders in a new city. That connects them.”

Whether she’s travelling to St Tropez, visiting Versailles, or strolling through Père Lachaise, the new season is what all Emily in Paris fans have been waiting for.
