Emily in Paris came back for a second season in December just in time for another much-needed round of escapism. Once again, viewers got to traipse through France with Emily (Lily Collins) as she navigated her messy love life, dramatic work life, and comically inexplicable Instagram success. (Plus, we got to take in the hats. So many hats.) But once the new season dropped all at once on Netflix, there were instant questions about if there would be another. Thankfully, the Netflix gods blessed us all with amazing news not too long after the season 2 premiere: There are definitely going to be more seasons of the show.
We’re counting down the days and popping bottles of Champére (it is meant to be sprayed, after all) until the new seasons are available, so to pass the time, we gathered all the possible intel there is on what’s to come on Emily in Paris. Check it out below.
Netflix revealed a big surprise for its season 3 announcement.
On January 10, Netflix revealed that Emily in Paris is officially coming back for a third season! Taking a page out of Emily’s book, the streamer revealed the news on the official Emily in Paris IG page. And that’s not all! The show was also renewed for a fourth season, which means we don’t have to hold our breath when it comes to even more episodes (at least for now).
Check out the special announcement below:
Lily Collins was hopeful.
In August when Emily in Paris wrapped filming for season 2, Lily posted some photos from her time in Paris on Instagram along with a caption that expressed her hopes for a third season.
“I’m leaving here filled with so many amazing memories, special moments with my family, endless appreciation to our incredible dedicated and talented crew, and another season officially wrapped! Very excited to share it with you all soon,” she wrote. “We’re heading home but keeping a little piece of us here until the next time….”
See? “Until next time….”
There have already been cast changes.
Lucien Laviscount, who played Alfie in season 2, was officially brought on as a series regular for season 3, according to Deadline. ICYMI, Alfie was Emily’s sexy lil London-born love interest this past season, so hopefully this means we’ll see how their ’ship pans out.
Production starts in June—and *may* include filming in London.
In April, French actor William Abadie told Us Weekly that Emily in Paris season 3 is scheduled to start filming in June—and that the production might spend some time in a different iconic European city this time around.
“We’re fully in preproduction and I think we’re supposed to head to Paris early in June, so I’m foreseeing a little bit of that soon to come,” he explained. “I’m also foreseeing, with the arrival of Alfie and London, we maybe spend a little time over there.…Nothing has been [made] official, so don’t take my word for it, but I think it might happen that we might end up in London for a minute.”
Oh, and we finally have a first look at everything.
Netflix finally gave us a glimpse at what we can expect in Emily in Paris season three and it looks like there will be plenty more drama, partying, and yes, chic outfits. And Emily even has a new look. She got bangs! Maybe she's going for the whole "new year, new me" thing? We'll have to wait and see.
There’s a lot more to explore.
Series creator Darren Star has also not confirmed a third season, but his interviews about season 2 show how much more there is for the show to explore. “Emily will embrace the city a little bit more,” he told Variety. “When she got there, she got a bit of a free pass in the beginning and I don’t think it will be quite as easy for her in second season. I think she will be more assimilated, in terms of living in Paris and stepping up to the challenges of learning the language.”
There are also other characters to look into. “We wanted all the other characters in the show to have bigger storylines and hired incredible actors as new characters,” Lily told Entertainment Weekly. For instance, Mindy (Ashley Park) is shown in season 2 embarking on her singing career.
But regardless of what happens on the show plot-wise, fans will surely want the show to come back once again for the gorgeous locations, over-the-top fashion, and simply how easy it is to watch. Does it really make sense that Emily’s company would leave her in Paris so long? Who cares? Maybe in season 7, she takes over the business.
