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 could go abroad.
For a possible second season, Collins imagines Emily in more places across Europe, and not just Paris. “At some point, I was joking with Darren and said, ‘Couldn’t they just, like, hop on the Eurostar and, like, have a British excursion?'” she told us. “I think it could be Emily going to all these different places. It’s Emily in … and then insert the city. She could just take the train and go all over Europe, and Mindy and her could go together.”
She added, “I think that there’s so much personality that we can dive into more in the second season if we get to go.”
