How's this for a Monday afternoon pick-me-up: Netflix has revealed it's hit comedy Emily in Paris has officially started filming for its second season!
On May 3, the streaming platform's Instagram account posted a video that showed various cast members updating fans.
"Bonjour from Paris (and maybe some other areas of France 😉)!" the caption read. "@emilyinparis is officially back in production on Season 2!"
The video kicks off with main star Lily Collins telling fans, "Hey, guys! I have some very exciting news for you..."
The scene then switches to Ashley Park, who states, "Nous sommes de retour."
Lucas Bravo, who plays hunky chef Gabriel, then pops in to translate, "We're back."
The video shows a few other familiar faces, each of whom declare, "we're back!" before Samuel Arnold takes the camera and says, "I cannot wait to get back on set with everybody!"
Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, who plays boss lady Sylvie, sings "so excited to go back to the set."
"Can't wait to see more of Paris," shares Bruno Gouery. "Au revoir."
"You can't wait, I can't wait," Camille Razat teases. "It's gonna be fun."
The show premiered in October and became an instant sensation, with 58 million households worldwide tuning in within one month of its debut.
"As an actor, an artist and a creative, the most meaningful gift is to connect with people through your art in some way," Collins gushed of its popularity during the pandemic. "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."
Despite the success — the comedy was even nominated for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy, with Collins nabbing a Best Actress nom — some criticized the series for portraying the French in a cliché way.
"The show is a love letter to Paris through the eyes of this American girl who has never been there. The first thing she is seeing is the clichés because it's from her point of view," creator Darren Star explained to The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm not sorry for looking at Paris through a glamorous lens. It's a beautiful city, and I wanted to do a show that celebrated that part of Paris."
