Netflix Has Renewed Emily In Paris For A Second Season
Netflix has confirmed the news that viewers have all been dying for: Emily in Paris is getting a second season.
Considering the first instalment was a massive hit with some people (despite some backlash from actual Parisians), it was only a matter of time before the streaming service gave us the goods.
The news was broken on Netflix's Twitter account, where they shared a promotional video and wrote: "Emily in Paris will return for Season 2!"
The clip showed all of our favourite characters from the show, and ended teasing: "Deux is always better than un."
There was a lot of speculation that the series was returning after a fictional letter written from Emily's Parisian boss Paris Sylvie Grateau (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) was sent to her American boss Madeline Wheeler (Kate Walsh).
It said: "We are writing to regrettably inform you that Emily Cooper will need to remain in Paris for an extended period of time."
For those who haven't watched it yet, Emily in Paris follows Emily Cooper (Lily Collins), a young marketing executive from Chicago, who moves to the French capital for an exciting job opportunity after her company acquired a luxury French marketing firm.

Confronted with the bright lights of the city and all its sparkling, romantic splendour, the 20-something (who doesn't speak a word of French) faces a culture clash and has to learn to adapt to her new life.
Tasked with revamping the company's social media strategy, Emily struggles to prove herself at work, all while dealing with the complicated issue of a love triangle involving her new friend Camille and hunky French chef (and her neighbour), Gabriel.
This big news has been a long time coming after the show's creator dropped a hint that he was working on the second season.
Darren Star told Oprah Magazine: "In season 2, [Emily'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. She'll have her feet on the ground a little more. She's making a life there."
Darren is keen to explore the love triangle that developed all through season one and no doubt there will be many twists, turns and drama in the follow up.
The show didn't go down well with Parisians, who took exception to the way their city was portrayed.
According to the New York Times, French radio station RTL wrote: "Between the beret, the cocktail dresses, and the impeccable streets, Parisians had a hard time recognising their everyday life."
Viewers also found the plot hard to believe that a 20-something woman with a double-digit follower count could be recruited to lead a social media team and suddenly get thousands of loyal supporters.
