‘Hi guys, I have some very exciting news for you,’ the Golden Globe nominee told followers before the scene skipped to Ashley Park and Lucas Bravo.

‘Nous sommes de retour,’ said Park, who plays Emily’s friend Mindy Chen.

She let Bravo, the man behind Emily’s crush Gabriel, translate, announcing ‘We’re back!’ which prompted a celebratory dance from Ashley.  

William Abadie (Emily’s client Antoine Lambert) popped up quickly before Samuel Arnold (Emily’s high drama co-worker Julien) told everyone ‘I cannot wait to get back on set with everybody!’

Philippine Leroy Beaulieu, who plays Emily’s tough boss Sylvie, offered a sing-song message, cooing: ‘So excited to go back to set,’ while Bruno Gouery, who plays co-worker Luc, said he ‘can’t wait to see more of Paris.’

Camille Razat – who plays Emily’s love rival and the girlfriend of Gabriel – finished things, smiling and telling the camera: ‘You can’t wait? I can’t wait! It’s gonna be fun.’

Emily In Paris, which was created by Sex And The City’s Darren Star, received mixed reviews upon its October 2020 release, with some celebrating the show as good, old fashioned escapism while others critiqued the series for being vacuous.

Rachel Handler at Vulture had a cutting take, writing: ‘Darren Star has done it yet again: centered an entire show on a thin, gently delusional white woman whimsically exploring a major metropolitan area in wildly expensive couture purchased on a mid-level salary.’

Emily In Paris faced a bit of controversy after earning a Golden Globe nomination.

Afterwards it was revealed that the show may have wooed members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the voting body behind the awards, with a lavish trip to Paris.

In February the Los Angeles Times reported that ‘more than 30’ of the HFPA’s 87 members were flown out to visit the set of the series while it was filming in 2019.

During the trip the group was reportedly treated to two nights at the $1400-a-night, five-star Peninsula Paris hotel as well as a meeting and lunch at the historic and private Musée des Arts Forains, all courtesy of Paramount Network.

Both critics and casual culture connoisseurs were surprised to see Emily star Lily Collins and the series earn nods while things like Michaela Coel’s I May Destroy You and Black ensemble casts like Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Judas And The Black Messiah, and One Night In Miami were overlooked in the main categories.

And even some inside the organization are saying they agree with the criticism.

‘There was a real backlash and rightly so — that show doesn’t belong on any best of 2020 list,’ another member of the HFPA admitted to the LA Times.

‘It’s an example of why many of us say we need change. If we continue to do this, we invite criticism and derision.’
