Showrunner Darren Star revealed that there will be a lot more relationship drama in the upcoming season saying,
“Emily is going to have a lot of complicated choices with a lot of the men in her life. Certainly with Gabriel, who’s been the primary relationship, but also her primary relationship is also with Camille, who she really became very good friends with — and I think Emily’s the kind of girl that would never want to betray a friend. So I think it’s given Emily a real moral dilemma”.
He further continued, “We haven’t really seen the potential of Emily and Mathieu’s relationship yet. I think Emily’s is going to have some surprising choices to make next season”.
Lily Collins also spoke about what she expects to see happen in season 2 and quipped, “I really hope to see Emily spend more time with her co-workers at Savoir outside the office and get to know them and Mindy more … I’d love for her to start to feel more at ease in the city and dive deeper into life as more of a resident than a visitor.
