If you like Emily in Paris, I’ve made a list of shows like Emily in Paris on Netflix for you. Emily in Paris follows the life of Emily, an American girl who got a job as a replacement of her boss at a French-based fashion firm, Savoir despite not being able to speak French. Although people have raved about how much they love the series, a lot of people—French people have complained about the lack of research and the constant racial discrimination in the series.
However, Lily Collins, the actress who played Emily took to social media to apologize for the numerous blunders the producers made, promising the second series would be better than the first.
If you’ve watched the first season and you enjoyed the mixture of romance and comedy then I’ve found better tv series for you.
