“Emily in Paris” is officially coming for a second season. Netflix has renewed its popular romantic comedy series in less than two months after the show's first season arrival.
The romantic comedy was originally developed and greenlighted by Paramount Network but moved to Netflix over the summer and paved its way into Nielsen’s list of the top 10 most-watched streaming shows for the week after its premiere.
The series is created, written and executive produced by Darren Star with Lily Collins starring in the lead role as Emily and also producing the show.
The renewal came in the form of a letter from Emily’s fictional boss Sylvie Grateau (see below).

Nous sommes désolées! We are writing to regrettably inform you that Emily Cooper will need to remain in Paris for an extended period of time. Despite her overconfident manner and lack of prior experience in luxury goods marketing, she has nonetheless managed to charm some of our hard-to-impress clients during her short time at Savoir. Call it bonne chance, or American ingenuity – I’m leaning towards the former – her results are impressive.
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.
We will work in conjunction with you on applying for a work permit on her behalf to prolong her time here.
We love having Emily in Paris!
But please don’t let her know that.
