These days, it's tough to travel amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, so Emily in Paris — which premiered via Netflix on October 2 — gave viewers a way to escape from the craziness of the world and feel like you were able to visit another continent.

In the dramedy, Emily Cooper — who is played by Lily Collins — is sent to Paris, France, for her job and quickly discovers that learning the language is hard. Fortunately, finding friends is an easy feat. Along the way, Emily gets cozy with some men and also continually proves to her boss, Sylvie, that she is a marketing wizard.

Even though the show — which Darren Star wrote and produced — got some criticism for the plot, the characters and the French/Parisian stereotypes, people couldn't help but think about Emily's intense chemistry with chef Gabriel or how she managed to snag big clients at her firm all while dressing super chic.

At the end of the day, Collins, 31, doesn't mind what people have to say about her character. In fact, she had the best response when dealing with the haters. "As disheartening as it sometimes is to read these things, it's also a gift," she told Vogue Arabia. "You're being allowed to improve."

"Director Darren Star championed my opinions and opened me up to an experience that was so rewarding and empowering," she gushed.


Star, 59, also responded to the critiques, saying, "The first thing she is seeing is the clichés because it's from her point of view. I wanted to do a show that celebrated that part of Paris.

"I wanted to showcase Paris in a really wonderful way that would encourage people to fall in love with the city in a way that I have," he told The New York Times.


Star has yet to confirm that season 2 is *officially* green-lit, but he does have a couple of ideas in mind when it comes to Emily's future in the City of Lights.

Mindy Chen, who is played by Ashley Park, revealed she is hopeful that her character finds someone special during season 2. “I know I’m in good hands. I trust what’s planned,” she told “But a love interest would be fun! But the most important thing to me is the friendship with Emily."

There *Will* Be A Love Triangle

"Emily is going to have a lot of complicated choices with a lot of the men in her life. Certainly with Gabriel, who’s been the primary relationship, but also her primary relationship is also with Camille, who she really became very good friends with — and I think Emily’s the kind of girl that would never want to betray a friend. So I think it’s given Emily a real moral dilemma," Star told Collider. "We haven’t really seen the potential of Emily and Mathieu's relationship yet. I think Emily’s is going to have some surprising choices to make next season."

As for Gabriel and Camille? "I think in his mind, yes, I think he’s broken up with Camille. They’ve been fighting a lot lately and he feels very emasculated by the fact that her family wants to help him. And he always wanted to be that self-made chef, and he’s been feeling so little for so long that, now that they have broken up, I don’t think he wants to get back to that, or at least they deserve to have a conversation about it. I think he’s really drawn to Emily and all the opportunities that are coming with her," he added.

"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," Star told "She'll have her feet on the ground a little more. She's making a life there."

Emily Might Travel More

Collins is hoping that Emily will explore Europe in the future. "At some point, I was joking with Darren and said, 'Couldn't they just, like, hop on the Eurostar and, like, have a British excursion?'" she told Harper's BAZAAR. "I think it could be Emily going to all these different places. It's Emily in … and then insert the city. She could just take the train and go all over Europe, and Mindy and her could go together.

"I think that there's so much personality that we can dive into more in the second season if we get to go," she added.

“We have a great world of characters that we’ve established,” Star told Vanity Fair. “I’d like to explore so much more of the supporting cast, like Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, who plays Emily’s boss Sylvie. I think we’ve just scratched the surface of who she is and what makes her tick."

At the end of the series, Gabriel, who is played by Lucas Bravo, keeps his restaurant open and doesn't end up moving to Normandy. However, Bravo would love to see him thrive in a new environment. "I hope he's going to get a brand-new restaurant where he will be able to bloom and do what he wants," he told "Because he was still a little constricted in the old one. I just want to see his creative mind at work in a new place, backed up by Antoine."

Gabriel was able to stay in town after Antoine — Sylvie's lover — helped him pay his bills, but this might not work in Gabriel's favor. "I think that Antoine is an untrustworthy guy and his motives … I don’t trust him. I think it’s a dangerous combination working with Gabriel," Star said.
