‘Emily In Paris’ Creator Teases Season 2 Storyline
*Spoilers for Emily in Paris ahead.*
Fans have been bingeing the rom-com fashion fest that is Emily in Paris since it landed on Netflix last week, lusting over the hunky French love interests, covetable designer outfits and dreamy Parisian locations.
While season 2 of the Lily Collins-starring show hasn't officially been confirmed (we give it a matter of days), the show's creator Darren Star has already dropped some hints of what he'd like the second instalment to be about.
You listening, Netflix?
For those who haven't watched it yet, Emily in Paris follows Emily Cooper (Collins), a young marketing exec from Chicago who moves the French capital for an exciting job opportunity when her company acquires a French luxury marketing firm.
Confronted with the bright lights of the city and all its sparkling, romantic splendour, the 20-something (who doesn't speak a word of French) faces a culture clash and has to learn to adapt to her new life - and fast.
Tasked with revamping the company's social media strategy, Emily struggles to prove herself at work , all while dealing with the complicated issue of a love triangle involving her new friend Camille and hunky French chef (and her neighbour), Gabriel.
Speaking to Oprah Magazine, Star - who is also behind hit HBO show Sex and the City - revealed that him and his team are already making plans for season 2.
Sharing some of his hopes for Emily, he told the outlet: "In season 2, she's going to be more of a part of the fabric of the world she's living in. She'll be more of a resident of the city.
"She'll have her feet on the ground a little more. She's making a life there."
Star - who also penned 90210 - also addressed the major cliffhanger that season 1 ended on while speaking to TV Line.

With Gabriel and Camille's relationship on the cusp of a breakup after the chef decides to move to Normandy to open a restaurant, Emily and Gabriel spend his final night in the city together.
It's only the next day that Gabriel reveals he is staying after winning investment - which is good news for Emily, but makes things all the more complicated with the issue of the love triangle. Will Gabriel and Camille stay together now? What does it mean for Emily's relationship with the chef? And her friendship with Camille?
While Star didn't give to much away, he told the outlet: "Nothing is sort of exactly as it seems to [Emily] and I think a lot of her ideas about life are constantly tested. And they will be next season, as well."
He went on: "What happens in the next chapter, I think, can be a real exploration of how does the relationship between these three characters evolve.
"That, to me, is such a fun thing to explore in Season 2, because these are not Americans. They're French people. To me, a big part of the show is looking at everything through a different lens. Season 2 will open up some interesting and surprising relationship avenues."
Lucas Bravo, who plays the Gabriel, also gave his thoughts on why he decided to stay in Paris.
"I think Emily gave him purpose again, and he had enough strength around her that he felt like he could go further with his restaurant project and actually make it happen, [whereas] he didn't have that strength before with Camille," he said. "Based on that, he sees Emily as his pillar, his main inspiration, his strength."
"And she's also the reason why he knows [Antoine, the investor]. She's the reason why he's going to have another opportunity, and she's connected to everything that is happening. So she's, obviously, the main reason he's so happy about staying."
Hmmm, we're so excited to see how this progresses.
Now, Netflix - just give them the green light already!
