I’ll merely come out and say it: The type from the first season of Emily in Paris was a disappointment.
As thought-about one in all 2020’s most anticipated new releases, it had the entire makings to fill the Increased East Side-sized hole that Gossip Girl left in its wake. Legendary costume designer and Intercourse and The Metropolis fairy godmother Patricia Topic, confirm! Audrey Hepburn look-alike and rising mannequin icon Lily Collins, confirm! A glamorous and overly idealized location, confirm! Nevertheless what followers obtained in its place was a mismatch of cliché storylines, a white-washed stable, a parade of French stereotypes, unrealistic social media expectations and some terribly odd outfit selections. I suggest, does anyone jog in a Chanel eyelet shirt?!
Nevertheless no matter most people exhibits of disdain, everyone, and I do suggest everyone, couldn’t seem to point out away. It was Netflix’s hottest comedy sequence last yr, with 58 million households streaming it in its first 28 days, and the sheer amount of posts, memes and articles that it spawned is nothing if not admirable. So with all this publicity, it acquired right here as no shock that a season two was launched just some weeks after its preliminary launch.
Whereas photos have been slowly trickling in over the previous couple of months, the first trailer for Emily in Paris season two was launched earlier instantly and has already racked up a complete bunch of a whole lot of views. So what’s subsequent for the American expat? It appears further Gabriel drama, perhaps a model new love curiosity, a Roman Trip-esque Vespa and fancier designer garments. The extent of style has however to be determined — I am utterly completely satisfied to report that she has lastly found some jogging-appropriate attire — nevertheless judging from the glimpses we’ve seen, I’m remaining barely optimistic.
