After Netflix revealed that Emily in Paris has not only been renewed for a third season but fourth as well, it sparked outrage on Twitter.
Somehow, Emily in Paris has become one of the most polarizing shows since its debut in 2020. Whether you love it, hate it, or love to hate it, there's no doubt that the series has become a huge success for Netflix – and Lily Collins – who stars as main character Emily, and is also a producer on the show.
If you haven't seen it yet, you're missing out. The show follows Emily Cooper, who moves from Chicago to Paris to join the marketing agency Savoir, as she struggles with embracing a new culture, making friends, and juggling relationships.
What is worth noting is that Emily is messy. She will sleep with your boyfriend, steal your accounts at work, and lie. But at the same time, she comes off as a sweetheart who has zero bad intentions.
Emily Cooper is Gen Z's Carrie Bradshaw. The main character we all eventually grow to dislike, no matter how hard we try to follow their perspective. Both Bradshaw and Cooper share questionable choices, a love for toxic relationships, and a wardrobe that is wilder than ever. The latter is a result of Costume Consultant Patricia Field, who is involved in Sex and the City, Emily in Paris, and most recently And Just Like That.
Whether it is candy-colored accessories, berets, or fingerless gloves, the fashion has been just as polarizing as the show itself.
The series has received plenty of criticism for its portrayal of the French. It is stereotypical and at times, borderline offensive, but the was still watched by over 58 million people in its first 28 days. For context, it ranks as Netflix's 13th most popular show, after other hits including Squid Game, La Casa De Papel, The Witcher, Stranger Things, Sex Education, and You.
No matter how much you dislike the show, Emily will be back with plenty more cringe-worthy outfits, poor decisions, and hot love interests – and millions of people will continue watching.
My only advice if you hate the show so much is: don't watch it.
