WATCH: Did you enjoy season one of Emily in Paris?
It’s believed that the 28-year-old British actor will play a fellow non-French speaking expat named Alfie. Described as a “sarcastic and charming cynic”, he refuses to speak French or immerse himself in the country’s culture, making for an antagonistic relationship with Emily. However, as the season progresses, the pair end up growing close.

Also set to join the cast of the second season are Tony-nominated playwright and actor Jeremy O. Harris and French television star Arnaud Binard.
Jeremy will play Gregory Elliot Dupree, a former protégé turned rival of the eccentric fashion designer Pierre Cadault, who viewers met in season one (he was the one that dubbed Emily ‘ringarde’, remember?).

There’s no news yet on an official release date for Emily in Paris season two. Filming for the new episodes is currently underway, and if all goes well, it could arrive on the streaming service in October – exactly a year after season one debuted.
