Chuck on your best striped tee and don a dodgy French accent: Netflix have officially announced Emily In Paris season 2! Following on from the super successful first season dropping last month, the streaming service revealed on Twitter, "Béret exciting news. Emily in Paris will return for season 2. Oui oui!"

The news perhaps wasn't that surprising, considering the show's creator, Darren Star, already seemed pretty confident it would return. "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 previously told "She'll have her feet on the ground a little more. She's making a life there."

But still, we're excited!

It looks like Netflix are too, after they also shared some behind the scenes secrets about the character on Twitter, such as the meaning behind her name.

"Friendly reminder Emily in Paris is supposed to be pronounced with a French accent so 'Emily' and 'Paris' rhyme," they explained, before adding, "I said what I said."

And because the internet is, well, the internet, fans of the show quickly mocked the tweet, coming up with their own versions of the show name.

"Your Emily in Paris name is your first name plus a city that somewhat vaguely rhymes with it. I'm Ryan in Lyon," one person wrote. Another added, "Emily in Swansea would be a better fit."

Someone else said, "How about Gary in Paris?"

This is the stuff we live for.
