We knew Netflix wouldn’t give up on a goose that lays golden eggs like Emily in Paris, and so it was. After the success (and the rain of criticism) of the first season, considered by some as a superficial product linked to a stereotypical image not only of the French but also of Europeans, the streaming giant announces filming of the second season in a video that sees all the protagonists, from Lily Collins to Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, rejoice at the idea of being able to return to the set again.
The series, conceived by Darren Star, the same as Sex and the City, it will resume the story where it left off, concentrating filming in Paris, Saint-Tropez and other French locations not yet revealed to the press.
