Netflix announced it with a very funny letter.
Very good news for fans of Emily in Paris. The series, starring Lily Collins, will have second season. The news was confirmed by Netflix through its social networks.
The series, which premiered in October this year, has become one of the most popular of the main streaming platform.
Its creator is Darren Star, the same one who was in charge of another very remembered series, Sex and the city.
In fiction, Collins, the daughter of Phil Collins, leader of the Genesis group, takes on the shoes of Emily, a young American who was hired by a Parisian marketing agency.
To announce the news that the story will have a second part, Netflix wrote a formal letter from Emily’s French boss, Sylvie Grateau (played by actress Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu), informing her American boss, Madeline Wheeler (Kate Walsh) , that the young woman will have to stay with the team in Paris for a while longer.
“We are writing to inform you, unfortunately, that Emily Cooper will have to stay in Paris for an extended period. Despite her lack of experience in the marketing of luxury goods, she has managed to charm some of our customers,” reads funny letter.
“We hope that by extending her time in Paris, Emily will nurture the relationships she has already established, deepen our culture and perhaps learn a few words of basic French.” the letter continues.

Since its debut last month, Emily in Paris it was a huge hit on Netflix. Meanwhile, the French press was not very kind to the program, and local specialists criticized the show for “perpetuating the stereotypes of the French, glorifying an unrealistic version of Paris, and its absurd plots.” They didn’t like it at all.
The ten-episode series has sparked a debate about the vision it offers of Paris and its people.
The first season was filmed almost entirely in France, above all, it is said, in “exteriors” of Paris.
The new episodes will have the original cast, which includes Ashley Park, Lucas Bravo, Samuel Arnold, Camille Razat, Bruno Gouery, William Abadie and Arnaud Viard.
“The show is a love letter to Paris through the eyes of this American girl who has never been there”, Star defended herself in statements to The Hollywood Reporter.
“The first thing she sees are the clichés. It’s about your point of view. I don’t regret looking at Paris through a glamorous lens. It is a beautiful city and I wanted to do a show that would celebrate that part of Paris, ”he added.
As for the second season, he has not yet decided whether the coronavirus pandemic will be included in the story.
As part of her work schedule, Star also has the seventh and probably final season of Younger in the works on TV Land and is preparing a spin-off starring Hilary Duff.
