What To Expect From Emily In Paris – Season 2?
The creator Of Emily In Paris, Darren Star, has hinted at many possibilities for the show. In one of the interviews with Oprah Magazine, Darren has hinted that we will see Emily growing up as obvious as it sounds. Darren quoted that Emily will be a bigger part of the fabric world she is currently living in. She will finally become a resident of the city. Learning to keep her feet on the ground, she will finally have a life there.
In another interview with Glamour, Darren has also stated that the audience will learn more about the supporting characters. He quoted that they will see more into Emily’s work-family. He specifically mentioned Sylvie, who is quite a mysterious character in the first season and needs more exploration.
Previously, Darren stated that he is not looking for Emily to be paired-up as she is still meeting new people. But, a recent interview with Cosmopolitan suggests that Darren might explore the relationship between Emily and Camille. Especially in the previous season when Camille kissed Emily, and she wasn’t sorry about it.
On the other hand, in an interview with Vogue U.K., Lily Collins herself suggested there is still no vibe on whether Emily likes Camille. She still might see her as a friend, especially since Camille still has feelings for Gabriel. Collins believes the series will focus on this new love triangle and see Emily taking bigger and more responsible roles. At least, that’s what she believes.
In another interview with Deadline, Lily Collins reinstated that though the series is looking to focus on the character’s relationship, Emily might not be ready for it. She stated that her character is in the dark about what to do next in her life. Collins believes that relationship is too early for the character to be locked in. She is yet to explore yet. Collins believes the beauty of the show and Emily’s character is that she doesn’t know what she wants. She is still looking for the characteristics of a person she is looking for. Being locked up with Gabriel and then Camille altogether, she still has some experiences to go on, so that might be too early.
