Just over a year after Netflix subscribers were delighted with season one of the show, which sees its lead Emily Cooper (Collins) navigate her marketing job, complicated love life and friendships in Paris, in December 2020, the streaming platform finally dropped season two of the show ahead of Christmas 2021.
According to Variety season two debuted in the Global Netflix Top 10 and topped the list across 94 countries with 107.6 million hours viewed in its first four days of airing, from December 22 to December 26, 2021.
At the beginning of the second season, fans saw Emily pick up the pieces after her love affair with Gabriel, endure a turbulent friendship with her friend Camille, fall for her new love interest Alfie, learn that Sylvie is taking over Savoir and wants her to join her Paris team instead of returning to Chicago, and ultimately learn that Gabriella and Camille are back together and have moved into the apartment beneath hers.
After fans questioned whether there would be a third season of Emily In Paris, amid rumours Emily might make a move to Berlin (thanks to Collins’ teasing on Instagram), Netflix has finally confirmed that a third and fourth season is on its way.
Here’s everything you need to know about Emily in Paris seasons three and four:
What do we know about Emily in Paris season three and four?
At this point, not a hell of a lot.
However, given season two’s cliffhanger ending – which sees Emily call Sylvie and tell her that she’s made up her mind about whether to stay in Paris – it’s likely the marketing expert will make a go of things in the French capital.
On January 10, Collins took to Instagram to confirm the ‘exciting news’ that Netflix had commissioned a third and fourth series of the hit show, meaning there will be ‘new possibilities’ for her character.
‘I can’t tell if Emily would love or hate this announcement outfit but she’d be screaming either way. Truly love you all, thanks so much for the incredible support. Seriously cannot wait for more. Merci Beaucoup!!…’ the actor captioned a photograph of herself wearing a T-shirt printed with her character’s face.
Several of the show's cast members couldn't contain their excitement over the news, with Camille Razat (who plays Camille) commenting: 'Yaaaaay [sic]'
Actor Philippine Leroy Beaulieu (Sylvie) added: 'You look lovely chérie! [sic]'
Ashley Park (Mindy Chen) noted: 'YESSSS CUTIIIE HERE WE GO. God I can’t wait to hug youuuuu [sic]'
Netlix also captioned a video on its account: ‘Say "bonjour" to 3 & 4! EMILY IS OFFICIALLY RETURNING FOR TWO MORE SEASONS! [sic]’
The news comes weeks after Collins hinted the show might move to Berlin, after she shared pictures of a recent photoshoot in which she wears her hair in a black cropped grungier looking style. From the looks of the cast's comments on the snap, they're all game for a trip to Berlin in future seasons.
Who will star in Emily in Paris season three and four?
Well, we’re certain that Emily in Paris actor and producer Collins will return as Cooper, as well as series favourites including Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), Park (Mindy), Razat (Camille), Leroy-Beaulieu (Sylvie), Julian (Samuel Arnold) and Luc (Bruno Gouery).
Given that Kate Walsh, who plays Cooper’s heavily pregnant Chicago boss Madeleine, recently made a one-episode cameo in Grey’s Anatomy season 18 as Dr. Addison Montgomery (16 years after making her debut in the hit show), and was about to give birth in Emily in Paris season two, it’s unlikely we’ll see her again in season three. Unless she stays in Paris, of course!
Whether Aflie (Lucien Laviscourt) will join seasons three and four entirely depends on the character’s relationship with Emily. After all, at the end of season two he learns that she and Gabriel were once an item, but admits to his partner that he has stayed on in Paris to be with her, despite his job returning to London. He even suggests a long-term relationship with Emily. Will he stay?
When will Emily In Paris season three be released?
If the previous two seasons’ release dates are anything to go by, we might receive season three as early as December this year.
Variety reports that the third season will shoot again at the Studios of Paris in spring or summer this year, but other locations including London are being explored.
It’s also believed the show’s writer Darren Star will soon start writing the third season.
