10 TV Shows and Movies Like Emily in Paris to Watch After You Binge Season 2 

Season 2 just got here and, yes, we’re already talking about shows like Emily in Paris. But with the nature of streaming, it’s going to be binged and over with before you know it. Please, you’re telling me you’ve been waiting over a year to find out what happens between Emily (Lily Collins), Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), and Camille (Camille Razat) and you’re actually going to pace yourself between episodes? You know as well as I do that you’re going to watch all 10 new episodes of the soapy Netflix series in, like, two days max.

Frankly, you should! Despite some awards-season controversy, there’s a lot to love about this fashion-forward dramedy following an achingly American 20-something who moves to Paris for her dream job and instantly finds herself in the midst of a sexy, sordid love triangle. Just don’t think too hard about how she grows her social media following….

So yeah, it’s only natural to speed through season two the second it drops on December 22. But what to watch after? Well, here are nine TV shows like Emily in Paris (and one movie) that might just be able to hold you over until season three.

If you want to get your fix in under two hours…

The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

Obviously, The Devil Wears Prada sprinted so that Emily in Paris could traipse around France in a red beret. Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway) is basically a less sunny version of Emily Cooper who chose a career in the New York fashion scene over a glamorous French marketing agency. Only, instead of a Sylvie Grateau (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu), Andy’s boss is Runway editor in chief Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), who is even more intimidating.

If you’re digging creator Darren Star’s vibe…

Younger (2015–2021)

Emily in Paris creator Darren Star definitely has a distinct, cotton-candy style that never fails to entertain. A series on his roster that you can check out after watching Emily in Paris is Younger. In the TV Land series, which ran for seven seasons, Sutton Foster plays Liza Miller, a 40-year-old who gets a job as a publishing assistant in NYC by pretending to be in her 20s. For some reason, this lie ends up bleeding into her personal (i.e., sex) life as well.

This is also the show to choose if the friendship between Emily and Mindy Chen (Ashley Park) is your favorite aspect of Emily in Paris. Liza finds a Mindy of her own in her coworker and greatest champion Kelsey, played by Hilary Duff.

Available to watch on Hulu

Sex and the City (1998–2004)

Darren Star is also the creator of a little-known gem on HBO called Sex and the City… ever heard of it? It ran for only six seasons and spawned two movies, a prequel series, and a newly minted revival that can be streamed on HBO. No big deal.

In case you somehow aren’t aware, Sex and the City follows Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), a columnist documenting the trials and tribulations of dating in New York City, based on the sex lives of her and her best friends, Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis), and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon).

Honestly, Carrie Bradshaw’s closet may be the only one on TV that rivals Emily Cooper’s, which makes sense, given that both series share legendary costume designer, Patricia Field.

Available to watch on HBO Max

The Carrie Diaries (2013–2014)

A Sex and the City prequel of sorts, The Carrie Diaries followed a younger Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) as she navigates friendship and relationship drama in high school. Though Emily Cooper is probably closer in age to SATC Carrie than high school Carrie, her rose-colored optimism is much more on par with the protagonist of this two-season series.
