Here's what we know. Minor spoilers ahead.
Netflix's Emily in Paris is the frilly, sexy, and ridiculous escape the Internet can't stop talking about—for better or worse.
From the creator of Sex and the City and Younger (Darren Star), the comedy series follows Emily, played by Lily Collins, a rising marketing whiz who uproots from Chicago to Paris for an unexpected new role. As she stumbles her way through her posh, icy workplace and her new Parisian stomping grounds, she makes some friends along the way, like Mindy (Ashley Park), the stylish au pair; Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), the dreamy chef who lives downstairs; and a handful of French lovers.
By the end of the 10-episode series—spoiler alert!—Emily and Gabriel finally spend the night together after he breaks things off with his girlfriend, Camille (Camille Razat). But, he's set to leave for Normandy to start his own restaurant. In the final scenes, though, the plans change and Gabriel is able to continue working at his bistro in Paris, which is great news for Emily ... until Camille finds out and seems to want to reunite with her old flame. "Can we talk?" she texts Emily in a cliffhanger ending.
After Netflix viewers binged (and hate-watched) their way through the series, Emily earned two 2021 Golden Globe nominations—a surprise that caused an uproar as the nominee pool was glaringly lacking in diversity. Later, the show also earned an Emmy nod. Still, the show will continue on for a second season, which was announced at the end of last year.
Here's what we know about Emily's next chapter.

Emily is “still exploring” her romantic prospects.
“I don’t know what they’re writing right now, but I think it would be a little early for Emily to lock something in,” Collins told Deadline of the future of Emily’s romance with Gabriel (or anyone).
“I think she’s still exploring the prospects,” she added. “Honestly I think Emily doesn’t even know [what will happen], and that’s the beauty of the way that they write the show. She has yet to find all the qualities she maybe is looking for. But that being said, there is that connection with Gabriel, but now she has Camille in that love triangle, so I think there’s still experiences to be had, adventure to be had and she’s still finding herself.”
