Emily in Paris season 2 is on its way, bébé! The sophomore installment of the series promises more glamour, romance and marketing mayhem. Who's anxious to return to the City of Lights?

The Netflix series follows Emily Cooper, played by Lily Collins, a Chicago-based marketing executive who moves to France and adjusts to her new life abroad. It’s filled with enviable fashion and beauty looks, love interests (Chef Gabriel, anyone?) and, of course, Emily's super-chic iPhone case that has created a buzz. 

"I couldn’t be happier to be back in Paris for season 2 to continue to grow and learn even more about this beautiful city and all of its character with Emily," Collins revealed during an Academy of Television Arts & Science panel in 2021. 

Though critics have derided the show, it’s quickly become a hit. Considering it was streamed in 58 million households in its first month alone, it's safe to say this Ms. Cooper is on-trend and here to stay. If you're curious about what will unfold next for the savvy businesswoman in the City of Love, read on.

'Emily in Paris' season 2: everything fans need to know

Emily is truly living every traveler's dream. This season, she will be spending time in Paris, of course, but she'll also be making her way into neighboring French cities. Viewers can even expect Ms. Cooper to jet to St. Tropez. We're searching for our passports just thinking about these dreamy locales!

Perhaps what viewers are just as excited to see is more diversity in the next installment of Emily's story. Having been criticized for a lack of diversity in season 1, the show's heavyweights responded graciously and admitted that the storyline could benefit from different viewpoints. 

"Paris is one of the most diverse cities in the world. We have so many ways of thinking, so many different nationalities, so many different neighborhoods," Lucas Bravo (Chef Gabriel) told Cosmo UK. "A lifetime wouldn't be enough to know everything that's going on in Paris."

When is season 2 of 'Emily in Paris' coming out?

Just in time for the holidays, Emily in Paris will return to Netflix on December 22. If you're in need of a marathon or two while getting cozy at home, Emily and co. will keep you occupied. Grab a blanket, whip up a hot chocolate bomb and enjoy.

Watch the 'Emily in Paris' season 2 teaser...

Take it all in folks! There's new fashionable moments, glamour and snap-worthy scenes. Though we're not treated to much in the way of plot, we're still excited nonetheless. 

...and the official 'Emily in Paris' season 2 trailer

"I used to be so decisive, then I moved to Paris and my life has just been chaotic and dramatic...and complicated," Emily confesses in the latest season 2 trailer. It sounds like a recipe for an addicting TV binge. 

This time, viewers are given more insight into the season's plot, and it has an awful lot to do with the hunky, hunky Gabriel and a new love interest! Have a look below. 

Who will be joining the 'Emily in Paris' season 2 cast?

Camille Razat, Ashley Park, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, Samuel Arnold and Bruno Gouery will return. Don’t worry Gabriel fans, of course Lucas Bravo will reprise his role within the juicy love triangle. William Abadie, who plays Emily’s client Antoine Lambert, has been promoted to a series regular, so we can expect a lot more of him in the episodes ahead. 

Alongside the season one favorites, Emily in Paris season 2 will welcome several new cast members, including a new love interest for Emily. American actor and playwright Jeremy O. Harris will guest star as Gregory Elliott Dupree, an iconic fashion designer, as will French actor Arnaud Binard as Laurent G, a Saint Tropez nightclub owner.

Arguably the most exciting new factor to look forward to is the inclusion of Lucien Laviscount, who you may recognize from Katy Keene and Scream Queens. The actor will play the recurring, sarcastically charming Alfie, a 30-year-old Londoner who might turn that Emily-Gabriel-Camille love triangle into a quadrangle. (Oof! That's going to be a headache.)

What will happen in 'Emily in Paris' season 2?

In season two, Emily is apparently going to be “more a part of the fabric of the world she’s living in”, Darren Star told OprahMag.com.

“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.”

The second season won't focus on Emily being a fish out of water, it will be all about her living in Paris, and hopefully, we’ll see her getting the hang of her new location and even the language. Star has also said he wants Emily to get closer to more of the other characters and hopes we can learn more about the backstories of the people she works with.

Collins spoke to Vanity Fair about season 2 and said: “There were so many experiences where we were like, ‘Does Emily go abroad? Do you think Emily takes the Eurostar and hops out and goes to Belgium or she goes to London?’ That would be so much fun.” 

Heartthrob Lucas Bravo has also hinted at what he thinks could happen next and it seems like Camille and Emily could become a thing?! We're certainly anxious to see how that plays out!

How will 'Emily in Paris' season 2 differ from the first?

If you ask Camille Razat, she has high hopes for Emily's next adventure. 

"It's much more complicated," she revealed to People. "There are much more emotional scenes. My character is even more important. I think season 2, it will be better than season 1, actually." 

Behind-the-scenes of 'Emily in Paris' season 2

On September 24, 2021, Netflix decided to whet our appetites with a sneak peek of Emily in Paris season 2. Decadent scenes! Over-the-top outfits! Potential love interests! We can barely contain ourselves. 

"More looks, more Emily, more PARIS!!! Season 2 first look photos are giving us everything," the platform said on Instagram.

'Emily in Paris': BTS with Lily Collins

The titular character gave fans a sneak peek at what's to come a little over a month before the premiere. In November 2021, Lily Collins shared a few snaps on her personal Instagram account with co-star Ashley Park as the Eiffel Tower hangs in the distance. 

"Queens of hearts. BTS Season 2 @emilyinparis… coming December 22!!" she wrote while donning a red and white heart dress. Park is wearing a glitzy suit with a statement necklace that's just as shiny as the City of Lights itself. 

Naturally, the outfits are top-notch. When in the hands of designer Patricia Field—who made her claim to fame in a little show called Sex and the City, you might've heard of it—anything can happen. 

"I have a tendency of making up these outfits that are not necessarily something you've seen before, but still hold some interest," the designer tells InStyle. "Because that's what lasts in a wardrobe."

To tide us over for the remainder of weeks before Season two lands, Lily Collins shared even more Emily outfits and even a picture with her fellow Savior colleagues/  costars Julian (Samuel Arnold) and Luke (Bruno Gouery.)

She showed off Emily's 'très chic' style, one outfit saw her in a white, sleeveless blazer and very on-trend pearl necklace, and the next in a ruffle blue skirt and lilac patent boots.

Lily captioned the pictures: "@emilyinparis reporting for duty. One month until we’re back at Savoir! Let the countdown begin..."

'Emily in Paris' award nominations

Despite some disgruntled viewers who weren't as taken with the comedy as others, Emily in Paris went on to earn two Golden Globes nominations, one for TV Series (Comedy or Musical) and Best Actress in a TV Series (Comedy or Musical) for Lily Collins. 

In July, the Netflix show also swept up two Emmy Award nominations: Outstanding Comedy Series and Production Design for a Narrative Program.

As Emily has been advised, "If you're going to do Paris for one year, for God's sake, do it right."

Emily, we'll see you soon!
