Turns Out, We've Been Pronouncing 'Emily in Paris' Wrong This Whole Time

From Good Housekeeping

Sex and the City fans rejoice, Darren Star has returned to the small screen with a romantic comedy reminiscent of Carrie Bradshaw’s love of chic fashion and Paris. Emily in Paris follows young marketing executive Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) after she makes the spontaneous decision to move away for work, putting her life in Chicago on hold. Quickly labeled as the ignorant American who can't speak French, Emily forages ahead at Savoir, the newly acquired French luxury marketing company she agreed to be the liaison of, in the hopes of a promotion when she returns to the Midwest.

But neither her boss Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) nor her neighbor/love interest Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) make the transition easy. Emily finds comfort in her friend Mindy (Ashley Park), but as folks know, the last episode of season 1 leaves everyone in disarray — in other words, we need a second season ASAP.

Here’s what we know about Emily in Paris season 2:

When is season 2 of Emily in Paris premiering?

Emily in Paris has officially been renewed for season 2. Netflix announced the second installment of the show on Instagram with a video of the cast celebrating. There was also a formal letter written by Sylvie letting Emily's boss in Chicago know about the news.

"We are writing to regrettably inform you that Emily Cooper will need to remain in Paris for an extended period of time," the letter reads.

Shortly after the second season of Emily in Paris was announced, Netflix shared an important notice about the proper pronunciation of the show. “Friendly reminder Emily in Paris is supposed to be pronounced with a French accent so 'Emily' and 'Paris' rhyme,” the tweet read.

In other words, the show is pronounced as “Ah-melie in Par-ee."

Before the dramedy premiered on Netflix in October, it was set to air on TV Land and then Paramount Network. But over the summer, the streaming service struck a deal with ViacomCBS to acquire the rom-com’s rights. Now, the series is produced by MTV Studios, Darren Star Productions, and Jax Media.

What’s more, Emily in Paris season 1 was filmed in the City of Lights, meaning production could be delayed because of travel restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic. Still, Darren is crossing his fingers that the cast and crew will be able to safely return to Paris for season 2.

“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.”

What will Emily in Paris season 2 be about?

While the creator has plenty of ideas for season 2 of Emily in Paris, he admits that he hasn’t thought about where all the different characters will end up. But Darren is definitely set on having Emily coming into her own.

"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," he told Oprah Magazine. "She'll have her feet on the ground a little more. She's making a life there."

According to Sylvie's letter, Emily has plenty to tackle in her next chapter: "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."

As for the other personalities on the show, Darren plans on keeping them at the forefront, both at the office and at Parisian restaurants during off-hours.

“We'll see more of Emily's work family, absolutely. Especially Sylvie, who I feel like is so mysterious,” he told Glamour. "I want to understand her more and know more about her, without totally knowing, if that makes sense … Any excuse to see more of Mindy, I am all for.”

How can I watch and stream Emily in Paris?

You can head over to Netflix to watch Emily in Paris. If you’re by your laptop, you can watch season 1 on the Netflix website. Or you can binge all 10 episodes via the iPhone or Android apps. First time users can try the streaming service at no cost for 30 days, after which you’ll have the option to sign up for a plan starting at $8.99.
