Emily In Paris is back for season deux! Netflix announced today that filming has begun on a new season of the hit series starring Lily Collins, and it all kicked off with this letter from Emily’s boss, Sylvie Grateau, chief marketing officer of Savoir, who know’s a thing or two about how to grab our attention.
The letter “written” by Sylvie, reads:
“To: Madeline Wheeler, C/O The Gilbert Group
Je serai bréve. We are writing to inform you that Emily Cooper’s new work permit has been approved with a start date of May 3, 2021. As per our prior correspondence, she is an asset to SAVOIR and we hoe she continues to have impact with our clients who are very particular about the results they expect from our agency.
As we often work with very unique brands, we hope that Emily continues to immerse herself culturally here in order to not make any egregious faux pas. We will continue to keep you updated on her progress and accomplishments in the coming months.”
We love that even in fictional press releases, Sylvie (played on the show by Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) manages to shade Emily’s struggles to assimilate to French customs.
Emily In Paris was Netflix’s most popular comedy series of 2020, the streamer revealed, with over 58 million households viewing the show within 28 days of its premiere. Collins plays the titular Emily Cooper, a young American social media marketing executive who lands a surprise job in Paris and is completely unprepared for the relationships and cultural differences she encounters.
Of the new season, she says, “It’s an honor to be associated with a project that provided people with some much-needed relief during a trying time when everyone was looking for a reason to smile and laugh. Not only did playing Emily teach me more about myself, but also about the world around me. I couldn’t be happier to be back in Paris for Season 2 to expand upon those lessons, to continue to grow, and learn even more about this beautiful city and all of its character with Emily.”
The second season of series will film in Paris and St. Tropez, among other locations. A premiere date for season two has not yet been announced.
