The long-awaited show,  Emily In Paris, is now streaming on Netflix and was released on October 2, 2020, directed by Darren Star, known for creating popular hit shows such as Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place.

Emily In Paris is a dramedy (drama/comedy) show about Emily Cooper, a young woman from Chicago, who moves to Paris to pursue her dream job with a French marketing firm. 

Emily Cooper is played by the English-American actress, model, and writer Lily Collins, who has played major roles in movies such as Mirror Mirror, Love Rosie and To The Bone. 

Upon her arrival, Emily’s new boss and coworkers are disappointed with her inability to speak French. Emily’s old manager was supposed to be there,  but due to her s pregnancy, she canceled and sent Emily in her stead.  

Fans are going crazy wondering if there will be a second season of Emily in Paris. Seventeen Magazine comments, “The good news is that Lily Collins, who plays Emily, is ready for more.” Lily said herself in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, “ All of us are incredibly grateful, and we’re hoping to get the green light for Season 2.”

Although this series is very entertaining, it makes you want to travel and explore Paris yourself. Emily in Paris is a definite recommendation for fans of drama and comedy.
