Missing Younger? Or any number of feel-good shows that have been delayed? Well, Emily in Paris might be for you. From creator Darren Star (who’s also responsible for creating the hit series Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place, Sex and the City and Younger), Lily Collins stars in Emily in Paris as Emily Cooper. When she picks up and moves to Paris for the job opportunity of a lifetime, Emily takes on the daunting task of bringing an American perspective to a French marketing firm, all while also balancing the culture shock, rocky new friendships and rockier new romances.
Emily in Paris was originally slated to debut on the Paramount Network, but due to rebranding, the cabler opted to ship the romantic comedy to Netflix. But that’s good news for us since we’ll now be able to watch all 10 episodes in a single sitting. Judging by the caliber of Star’s past work, all of which are pop culture phenomenons in their own right, binge-watching will be the preferred method of viewing Emily in Paris. For a binge-worthy feel-good show, you won’t feel guilty about spending a whole day watching, check out the new series on the first Friday of October.
