When Emily in Paris Season 1 was released last year in October 2020, smack dab in the middle of lockdown, it reminded people of a time when things were normal and made them eager for things to get better and go back to the way they were. Now that we’re in 2021 and the lockdown has eased, Emily in Paris returns with Season 2 and it has fans excited for what’s to come!
Last season we left our uber fashionable marketing maven, Emily Cooper, acquainting herself with French culture, trying to fit in at her new job at Savoir and trying not to let lust (love?) ruin her newfound friendship with Camille. With a season finale that left us on a cliffhanger let’s find out what’s in store for us in Season 2!
Season 2 Ticks All Of Our Boxes!
Emily in Paris Season 2 will air on December 22nd 2021 and will comprise of ten, 30 minute long episodes. However, we’ve been sleuthing online to find out what to expect and we’re going to let you know three of our most anticipated episodes from the show!
Episode 3: Bon Anniversaire!
Last year there was some confusion about how old Emily Cooper was in the show. Lily Collins who plays Emily Cooper in the show, accidentally revealed in an interview with British Vogue that she believed Emily was fresh out of college and maybe this was her first year after graduation and she thought she was 22 years old. However, this made fans question the likelihood of such a scenario because it seemed unrealistic that a 22-year-old could be so well-respected at her company and already have a master’s degree to her name. Many fans had thought her to be a millennial career woman probably in her thirties and were left confused about what Emily’s age actually was. However, this season all questions will be laid to rest as Emily will be celebrating her birthday in the third episode and we’ll finally find out how old she actually is!

Episode 4: Jules & Em
The fourth episode will introduce us to Emily’s new love interest Julien (Samuel Arnold), who’s going to give our favourite chef, Gabriel, a run for his money! We absolutely love, love triangles and we can’t wait to see how this plays out!
Many fans are speculating whether Julien’s inclusion is a result of the ‘racial reckoning of 2020’ which highlighted the need to be more inclusive of all races in TV shows so that the cast is more diverse. That’s also one of the reasons why this season supporting characters from the show (Sylvie, Mindy, Julien, Luc) will have storylines of their own this season and will illuminate their personalities, whilst also introducing some new faces to the cast (Lucien Laviscount as potential love interest Alfie; Jeremy O. Harris as Gregory Elliott Dupree, a fashion designer and former protégé of Pierre Cadault; and Arnaud Binard as Laurent G., a nightclub owner who has a surprising connection to the main character)- to be inclusive of all genders, races and sexualities!
Episode 7: The Cook, the Thief, Her Ghost and His Lover
We can already tell that this will definitely be one of the juiciest episodes o the season! Will Camille finally find out about Emily’s betrayal? Will Gabriel be the one to come clean and will that result in Emily and Camille’s friendship going south or will they survive this thunderstorm?! Only time will tell, but we have our tissues ready for the tears, just in case…
