Your favorite guilty (or perhaps not-so-guilty) pleasure is back when the second season of “Emily in Paris” hits Netflix on Dec. 22. And, ever the fashion icon, Emily (Lily Collins) has the perfect accessory to go along with the show’s imminent return – a brand new trailer.
The trailer looks and sounds like everything you loved about the first season of “Emily in Paris.” Saucy banter, funny hats and existential distress take center stage, most notably in a stroll through a stately graveyard, leaving one to wonder whether Jim Morrison’s bones are nearby.
Creator and showrunner Darren Star returns alongside star and producer Collins. Collins appears in the show along with returning series regulars Philippine Leroy Beaulieu, Ashley Park, Lucas Bravo, Camille Razat, Samuel Arnold, Bruno Gouery, and William Abadie, recurring guest star Kate Walsh, and new cast members Lucien Laviscount, Jeremy O. Harris, and Arnaud Binard.
According to the official synopsis, this time around Emily is “getting better at navigating the city but still struggling with the idiosyncrasies of French life. After stumbling into a love triangle with her neighbor and her first real French friend, Emily is determined to focus on her work — which is getting more complicated by the day.”
She also meets a fellow expat while studying the language in her French class, someone who (according to the official synopsis) “both infuriates and intrigues her.” So, yes, her intention to focus on work (and learning the language) could get derailed very quickly by sexy entanglements. We are already clutching our baguette, carbs be damned!
The fizzy “Emily in Paris” was, according to Netflix, the streaming giant’s most-viewed comedy series of 2020. And with the show returning just before the extended Christmas break, it could wind up being one of 2021’s most-viewed comedy series too. Because, really, once you’ve run out of Christmastime classics to watch, throwing on “Emily in Paris” could be just the seasonal treat you need.
