Season 2 of “Emily in Paris” has begun production in Paris, St. Tropez, and other locations in France today, officially announced by Netflix.
The first season of the comedy, which stars Lily Collins and hails from the creator, writer, and executive producer Darren Star (Younger, Sex and the City), captivated members around the world. During a recent Academy of Television Arts & Science panel on the series, we revealed that 58 million households around the world chose to watch Emily in Paris in its first 28 days, making it Netflix’s most popular comedy series of 2020.
“As an actor, an artist, and a creative, the most meaningful gift is to connect with people through your art in some way,” Says Lily Collins. “It’s an honor to be associated with a project that provided people with some much-needed relief during a trying time when everyone was looking for a reason to smile and laugh. Not only did playing Emily teach me more about myself, but also about the world around me. I couldn’t be happier to be back in Paris for Season 2 to expand upon those lessons, to continue to grow, and learn even more about this beautiful city and all of its character with Emily.”
Darren Star adds “From the beginning, we always wanted to create this beautiful cinematic view of Paris. The timing of the series release was fortuitous for us as everyone around the world was able to become armchair travelers and live vicariously through our cast. We could not be more proud and are excited to bring more joy to our fans as we start production on Season 2.”
