The creator of the Netflix show Emily in Paris reminds us how to pronounce the title.


The creator of Emily in Paris reminds us how to pronounce the Netflix show’s name.

Before we can say “bonjour” to Emily in Paris season two, we need to figure out how to pronounce the show’s name.

For those who need a refresher, Netflix claimed in a tweet in November 2020 that we’ve been mispronouncing the show’s name all along.

That’s inconvenient, mon Dieu!

The streamer wrote in a tweet at the time, “Friendly reminder Emily in Paris is supposed to be pronounced with a French accent so ‘Emily’ and ‘Paris’ rhyme.”

But, before you start saying “Emily in Par-ee,” keep in mind that the show’s creator, Darren Star, told Entertainment Weekly in an interview that this isn’t always the case. “For those who like to pronounce it that way, I’m all for it,” Star said.

“But Emily is in Paris for me,” says the narrator.

The fact that Lily Collin’s character, Emily Cooper, is supposed to be annoying was also clarified by Star.

“I can see why that irritated people,” Star explained.

“However, it’s all part of her learning curve, and that’s where the show’s tension is.”

When season two premieres on December 22, let’s hope Emily has grown up a little.

With 58 million views in just one month, Emily in Paris became Netflix’s most popular comedy series in 2020.

The series drew a lot of attention, but it also drew a lot of flak.

“That’s like writing to a focus group,” Star says of bringing it back to the writer’s room.

“It’s never how anything good gets done,” says the creator.

However, there is one criticism that Star addressed: “Why do all the French people speak English to each other when Emily isn’t around?” Because the series was originally intended to air on Paramount Network rather than an international platform, the creators decided that having the French speak English rather than having subtitles was the best option.

However, Star hinted that this is about to change.

“We spend a lot more time with our French characters this season, and when they’re not with Emily, they’re speaking French,” Star explained.

“I think it’s fantastic that American audiences don’t mind subtitled foreign shows.

In fact, they prefer the realism of characters speaking in their native tongue when it makes sense.”

So you’re saying we’ll be able to hear Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) speak French?
