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.

Lily Collins is eager for more.
“I really hope we get to go into more episodes, because there’s so much that it leaves you hanging with. Emily has had to kind of pivot so many times in this experience already that I think she’s ready and able to kind of just go with it and see what happens,” Collins told BAZAAR.com. “But I kind of love that Emily’s going into all these new situations just open-minded, and she’s not judging it, and she’s not judging herself.”
She also told Vanity Fair, “I would love nothing more than to be able to go back to Paris and do [a new season].” Apparently, Collins, Star, and the crew were inspired with more ideas as they filmed Season 1 in the French capital.
“There were so many situations that we were like, ‘Okay, write that down. That’s going to happen in season two,'” Collins added. She also noted that there could be potential for Emily to go abroad to a nearby country. “That would be so much fun,” she said.
