Created and produced by Darren Star from Sex and the City, Emily in Paris is a more modern, less sexual take on extravagant life that is made to cater the new generations, which is why a lot of fans are asking for Emily in Paris Season 3.
Emily in Paris becomes a lot of favourites for many young socialites who work in media or advertising agency, mainly because it feels like a fictionalized and fantasy version of the marketing / social media planner kind of life. But, that doesn’t mean it’s heartwarming and risque at the same time!
So, will there be Emily in Paris Season 3? Well, no need to work in marketing agency, we will tell you everything you need to know about Emily in Paris Season 3?
Will there be Emily in Paris Season 3?
Season 2 of “Emily in Paris” dropped on Netflix on December 21. The streaming service has yet to renew the show for a 3rd season. However, Season 2 didn’t get the official greenlight until November, over a month after the series’ October 2, 2020, debut. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Nielsen Corporation reported that Netflix subscribers consumed Season 1 of “Emily in Paris” like a delicious french pastry, watching “more than 676 million minutes of the series within its first week of release.
However, critics were less excited by the show. “Emily in Paris” is certified (not so) fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a 58% approval rating at the time of writing. As the reviews suggest, Star’s vision of Paris may be as nonsensical as an Antoine Lambert (William Abadie) produced perfume ad. Still, it’s hard to deny how “Emily in Paris” is a top-notch guilty pleasure.
The show took another beating from critics when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association bestowed it with two Golden Globe nominations in 2021, edging out critical darling “I May Destroy You” (via Cosmopolitan), but its 2021 Emmy nod for outstanding comedy series and its popularity among Netflix viewers could provide ample motivation for the streamer to renew it for Season 3. Just don’t expect to see the potential 3rd season until fall 2022 at the earliest.
Who will be in Emily in Paris Season 3?
Although Emily’s plans are left up in the air in the Season 2 finale, there’s no doubt that Lily Collins, who also serves as a producer on the series, will reprise the titular role in Season 3 if Netflix renews the show. After all, how can there be an “Emily in Paris” with no Emily? In an interview with Glamour before the release of Season 2, Collins expressed her hope that the doe-eyed marketing executive’s adventures continue. “I hope that we get a season three, because I really hope we get to come back and do this again,” she said.
Season 2 sets up the return of all the major players and Emily’s continuing love triangle with Camille and Gabriel. Actually, make that a quadrangle, with Emily’s latest boyfriend, British hottie Alfie (Lucien Laviscount), rounding out the foursome. Kate Walsh, who plays Emily’s pregnant American boss Madeline Wheeler, is the adversary for Sylvie we didn’t know we needed, and she is poised to become a Season 3 regular. Madeline arrives in Paris in the season’s penultimate episode and manages to blow up Savoir and Emily’s life along with it by the finale’s end.
Broadway performer Ashley Park gets plenty of opportunities to showcase her singing talents, and her character, Mindy’s journey from fallen idol to chanteuse is just getting interesting. Also guaranteed to return are Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, Samuel Arnold, and Bruno Gouery, whose characters join forces to become Savoir’s fiercest competitor.
What will Season 3 of Emily in Paris be about?
The Season 2 finale of “Emily in Paris” ends with a big cliffhanger. Will Emily stick with Madeline holding together what’s left of Savoir, or throw caution to the wind and side with Sylvie? Either way, it will be interesting to see the show explore her relationships with both women. It’s evident in the finale that Emily is beginning to feel undervalued by Madeline while finally receiving the validation she’s been craving from Sylvie.
All signs point to Emily playing it safe. That means getting on the fast track for a one-way ticket back to the U.S., putting distance between herself and Gabriel, who, while handsome and charming, is also someone who moves in with his ex-girlfriend because his first choice turns him down. Emily isn’t much better, toying with the affections of Alfie when her heart belongs to Gabriel. Not only is “Emily in Paris” running the risk of dragging the will-they-won’t-they storyline on for too long, but it’s also becoming less a question of whether they belong together and more of whether they deserve each other.
