Everything We Know About Emily In Paris (Season 3): Emily in Paris has been one of the most loved shows on Netflix in the recent past. Created by showrunner Darren Star who has been previously associated with hit television shows like ‘90210’ (1990-2000) and ‘Sex and the City’ (1998-2004), the series gained immediate international success on its release. Following Emily, an American marketing executive’s recent relocation to the city of love, Paris, the show details her adventures and cultural clashes in her personal as well as professional life as she navigates, love, friendship, and career in a new country.
The show had everything to make it a much beloved and instant hit among the audiences; picturesque locations, fashionable clothes, and a healthy dose of romance and comedy. It is thus unsurprising that the show became a guilty pleasure hit of saccharine sweetness and is eagerly awaited by audiences. That is not to say that the show has been without criticism, it has been called out for depicting a stereotypical portrayal of the French and having a frothy narrative. Criticism aside, the light romantic comedy series makes up for great escapist television and has been a favorite among audiences, having been nominated for various television awards for its past two-season run.
Netflix renewed the much-loved television series for a third and fourth season in January 2022 following enthusiastic reception among the audiences of the second season of the show which was released in December 2021. Netflix shared the news of production has commenced for the upcoming Season 3 of the hit show on 1st June 2022 through the show’s official Instagram handle.
Where Were We Last?
Season two ended on a cliffhanger and last we saw Emily she was deliberating between the tough question of leaving Paris and returning to her marketing job in Chicago or accepting Sylvie’s offer of leaving her job at the Savoir and starting her own firm.
There is also drama in her personal life with Gabriel being back together with Camille and living with her right downstairs to Emily’s apartment and a new romance brewing with Alfie who decides to stay back in France for Emily. Emily is well and truly at crossroads with some tough decisions to make both on the career front and love front.
What is ‘Emily in Paris: Season 3’ About?
The Official synopsis for the season reads “One year after moving from Chicago to Paris for her dream job, Emily finds herself at a crucial crossroads in every aspect of her life. Faced with two very different paths, Emily will have to decide exactly where her loyalties lie — at work and in her romantic life — and what those decisions mean for her future in France, all while continuing to immerse herself in the adventures and surprising twists and turns that life in Paris provides.”
The synopsis hints that Emily is at a crossroads both with respect to her love life and career and will have to make important choices, most importantly with respect to her love triangle with Alfie and Gabriel. One thing is for sure Emily’s stay in Paris will send her on more adventures.
We can expect this season to also focus on the supporting characters as they get a chance to grow. Lily Collins in an interview with Vogue France shared that “The first season was about Emily, and the next one is about her personal identity Season 3 offers the other characters the opportunity to develop their characters.”
