What ‘Emily in Paris’ is about?
Emily in Paris stars Lily Collins as young women Emily Cooper who moves to Paris to provide an American point of view to Savoir, a French marketing firm. She struggles to find balance while experiencing a culture clash with her “boring” and mundane U.S. upbringing.
The rom-com series opened to mixed reviews and aggregated just 63% score on Rotten Tomatoes. “As disheartening as it sometimes is to read these things, it’s also a gift,” Collins, 32, previously told Vogue Arabia of the criticism show received from the critics. “You’re being allowed to improve.”
Despite mixed reviews, the series has been nominated for two Golden Globes (Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress – Television Series, Musical or Comedy) and two Emmy Awards (Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Production Design).
According to series creator Darren Star, the show’s second outing will dig deeper into Collins’ character and her experiences. He also said that the next is a stronger season than its predecessor.
The first season of Emily in Paris is streaming on Netflix. You can watch it before the second season arrives.
