Filming for the third season of Emily in Paris is well underway, and we can’t wait to see what Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) is getting up to this time round.
The hit Netflix series has become a firm favorite among viewers after the first season was released in 2020, and is one of the streaming giant’s most popular comedy series.
Emily in Paris follows Emily, a marketing executive from Chicago, who was originally headed to Paris for one year to offer ‘an American perspective’ at the fictional French marketing firm Savoir.
Drama has followed her throughout both series, from complicated romances to work-related spats, and after the second season was left on a cliffhanger, there’s no doubt there’ll be a whole lot more drama in store for Emily in the new installation.

On 10 January, less than one month after season two was released, Netflix announced that Emily in Paris will be returning for a third and fourth season.
Taking to Instagram, Netflix wrote: “Say ‘bonjour’ to 3 & 4! EMILY IS OFFICIALLY RETURNING FOR TWO MORE SEASONS!”
Fans were overjoyed at the news as were the cast of Emily in Paris, and Lily, 33, took to social media to confirm the news herself with a sweet snap of herself wearing pajamas printed with the show’s logo and a snap of herself.
The actress penned: “Woke up early to give you some VERY exciting news… @emilyinparis is back for Season 3… AND wait for it, Season 4!!!!! 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 official cast for season three is yet to be revealed, but Lily recently reunited with a handful of her co-stars at annual TV festival, PaleyFest LA 2022.
She was joined by Ashley Park, who portrays Emily’s BFF Mindy, Lucas Bravo, who plays Gabriel, Camille Razat, the actress who plays Camille, and Lucien Laviscount, who took on the role of Alfie in series two.
The five actors were there to chat about Emily in Paris, which many fans presumed meant that they would all be reprising their roles in the upcoming third series.
Other cast members who will most likely be returning include Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu (Sylvie), Samuel Arnold (Julian), and Bruno Gouery (Luc).
Kate Walsh portrayed Emily’s boss Madeline in the last series, but at the end she was just about to give birth so it’s unknown whether the character will be returning this time round.
In April it was confirmed that Lucien, 30, has been promoted from recurring character to series regular, meaning that season three will feature a whole lot more of Alfie, Emily’s French class pal and love interest.
The actor confirmed the happy news on Instagram, and fans have been left wondering what will lie ahead for Emily and Alfie now that he’s definitely sticking around.
Alongside Lily and Lucien, another star who is definitely reprising their role is Ashley, 31, who has been spotted filming with Lily in Paris.
The stunning actress portrays Mindy Chen, Emily best friend in Paris, in the hit series, and Mindy has become a favorite among fans.

Lily posted a snap of her and Ashley soaking up the sun in Paris on 2 June, and she excitedly wrote: “Reunited in Paris! Let season 3 filming begin!…,” while Ashley posted a series of photos and added: ” Those Americans roaming Paris again yayyyy!”
A photo of the first table read was also posted on the official Emily in Paris the same day, with a script and Lily’s name tag visible in the snap.
It was shared alongside the caption: “Back at a table together, and it’s not for a client meeting or a dinner party. Production on season 3 is starting now!”
There’s many theories about what could happen in the third season of Emily in Paris, and co-executive producer Darren Star recently dropped some hints about what is to come. Speaking at PaleyFest LA 2022, he revealed that this time round the characters will be outside of Paris as they get set to explore more of France.
“We’re always thinking about how we can show Paris. It’s not hard to make Paris look amazing, because it is, from wherever you look or wherever you point the camera.
“We will always want the story to drive locations. but we have some really beautiful locations lined up for season three in France, not just in Paris,” Darren said at the event, reports Variety.
Fans are eager to find out whether Emily will be staying in Paris or not, with season two finishing with her attempting to decide whether to take the job that Sylvie had offered her in France or whether to return to Chicago, which was the original plan.
She was left heartbroken in the final episode after finding out Gabriel and Camille had rekindled their romance, while Alfie had admitted his feelings for Emily too, adding to the confusion.
The final episode finished with Emily calling Sylvie to tell her she’s made her decision, but viewers will have to wait to find out what exactly that decision was.
Darren opened up about the cliffhanger to Glamor shortly after the second season was released, saying: “The thing about this decision is there’s no right decision here.
“There’s no one decision that’s going to make everybody happy or that’s even going to make Emily happy. She has some tough choices, and she’s put in the middle of a lot of sticky situations at the end of the season.”
