Netflix has renewed Darren Star’s Emmy-nominated romantic comedy series “Emily in Paris” for a third and fourth season.
It comes after the second season of the Darren Star-created series premiered on December 22. The second season received 107.6 million hours of viewing in its first week, placing it second on Netflix’s Global Top Ten list for English-language series, trailing only the second season of The Witcher, which received 168 million hours.
The series was also the most popular comedy series on the streaming service in 2020, with 58 million households watching the first season in its first month.
Emily (Lily Collins), a driven twenty-something marketing executive from Chicago, is abruptly sent to a job in Paris after her employer acquires a French luxury marketing firm. She is given the duty of redesigning the company’s social media strategy, and she begins a new life in Paris full of experiences and obstacles as she juggles winning over her colleagues, meeting friends, and navigating new romances. Emily travels from Paris to the French Riviera, including Saint-Tropez, in Season 2.
After landing her dream job in Paris, Collins’ titular character, an ambitious marketing executive from Chicago, is followed in Emily in Paris.
Season two finds her more clearly entrenched in life in Paris, and she is improving her navigational skills but still grappling with the quirks of French life. Emily is determined to focus on her profession, which is becoming more complicated by the day, after stumbling into a love triangle with her neighbour and first true French friend. She meets a fellow expat in French class who both irritates and intrigues her.
The next season will be shot in the spring or summer at the Paris Studios on the outskirts of the French city. Other locations, such as London, are being investigated.
“Emily in Paris” even overtook “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Criminal Minds” on Nielsen’s list of the top 10 most-watched streaming shows for the week following its premiere. Two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program were also given to the show.
Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, Ashley Park, Lucas Bravo, Samuel Arnold, Bruno Gouery, Camille Razat, and William Abadie star in the show, which also has a recurring cast that includes Kate Walsh.
Star, whose credits include popular shows like “Sex and the City,” “Beverly Hills, 90210,” and “Melrose Place,” is set to conclude production on his new Netflix comedy “Uncoupled” later this month and then devote himself to creating Season 3 of “Emily in Paris.”
The series has been panned for its stereotypical and idealised depiction of France, with French minister Jol Giraud mocking a scene in which Emily travels by train to Saint-Tropez, while the second season also enraged the Eastern European community with its depiction of Petra, a Ukrainian shoplifter, which was deemed offensive by the country’s culture minister Oleksandr Tkachenko.
MTV Entertainment Studios, Darren Star Productions, and Jax Media are the producers of the show. Tony Hernandez of JAX Media, Lilly Burns of JAX Media, and Andrew Fleming are among the executive producers. Tony Hernandez and Lilly Burns (Jax Media), as well as Andrew Fleming, are among the executive producers. Producers include Raphael Benoliel, Stephen Brown, Collins, Shihan Fey, and Jake Fuller.
