The show created by Darren Star has become a phenomenon. It is one of the most-watched, followed, contentious & berated shows of recent times. With elements like love, comedy, drama, fashion, the beauty of Paris, the newness of life, etc. We met the Character of Emily for the first time on 2nd October, 2020; it was the most popular original comedy on Netflix in 2020, with 58 million people watching it during its first 28 days on the streaming platform. Its second season also didn’t disappoint; it made a place for itself in Netflix’s top 10 when it debuted.
Fans have questions about whether we have a third season or not, and we are happy to let you know that we’re meeting Emily again soon; here’s everything we know about her return.
Emily in Paris revolves around a girl relocating to Paris as part of her job; when newness comes into her life, it makes way for new troubles, feelings, love, confusion & happiness. It’s a story about how she navigates through life in a beautiful city when her life, in contrast, gets not that beautiful. Questionable choices, lopsided decision-making process, dicey conundrums, tons of entertainment & twists, all the madness unfolding simultaneously is what it deals with.
Plot & Storyline
Emily is a young bright American professional working in a marketing firm; her enthusiasm & pleasant attitude towards life goes for a toss as she moves to Paris. She struggled to speak fluent French, had difficulties gelling with new people, encountering creepy clients, and faced workplace hardships. Aa new doors do open for her it isn’t a bed of roses for her as something or the other keeps going in the wrong direction. Even when things appear to be going great, her life gets loaded with drama & meets with several roadblocks.
When it comes to the cast of the show, we’re pretty sure that Emily in Paris actor and producer Collins will return as Cooper, as well as series favorites including Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), Park (Mindy), Razat (Camille), Leroy-Beaulieu (Sylvie), Julian (Samuel Arnold) and Luc (Bruno Gallery) Lucien Laviscourt.
It’s unlikely we’ll see Kate Walsh again in season three, but there is no confirmation about her leaving or being a part of season 3.
Whether we’ll see new actors in the show or not is not confirmed, announced, or speculated about at the moment.
Recap of season 2
Season 2 ends on a cliffhanger. Emily is faced with situations where she needs to choose and decide for herself to go either left or right. And it isn’t like everything is happening in balanced proportions; her life isn’t sparing her mind, as both personally & professionally, things are spinning out of control & trembling.
At work, Emily’s career is in jeopardy as her boss, Madeline, and her mentor, Sylvie, engage in an intense fight over running the business, which leads her to quit her job & start her marketing firm; she proposes the idea of Emily that she can join her new venture by staying in Paris instead of moving back to Chicago & ascending in her current job. Emily calls Sylvie to express her final decision, but the show ends without letting us know what option Emily chose.
Things are getting knotted & complex in her personal life as she finds herself in a love triangle between her new boyfriend, British banker Alfie, and her neighbor, Gabriel. After Alfie tells Emily that he has to go back to London for work, he suggests they try a long-distance relationship. On the other hand, Emily realizes that she still has feelings for Gabriel. But when she goes upto his apartment to confess her love, she discovers that Gabriel and his on-again-off-again girlfriend Camille are on-again and have decided to be in a live-in relationship.
