God help us, Emily Cooper is back. After confirming on January 10 that there would be at least two more installments of Emily In Paris, Netflix has commenced filming the third season, with Lily Collins captured on the streets of Paris shooting with costar Lucas Bravo.
So what’s been revealed about the next installment of the Emmy-nominated series thus far? First of all, virtually the entire cast is returning, including Bravo as Gabriel, Camille Razat as Camille, Ashley Park as Mindy, and Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu as Sylvie. Lucien Laviscount—who appeared as Alfie in the most recent season—has also been upgraded to a series regular, meaning Emily’s messy romantic life is about to get even more complicated.
In terms of the plot, given that the shoot is taking place in the City of Light, it’s also highly likely that Emily made the decision to stay in Paris once again. Those who made it through the last season will remember that it ended on a cliffhanger, with Emily having to decide between taking a senior Chicago-based position with Savoir or leaving the company and working for Sylvie’s own boutique firm. That means Emily will have to deal with the fact that Gabriel and Camille are now back together—and living in an apartment directly underneath hers—in addition to having a boss who holds her in total contempt.
And while there’s no trailer as of yet, the leads have been posting regular updates from Paris. (The big news from Collins? The fact that Emily’s apartment now has its own entry on Google maps.) Stay tuned, too, for more paparazzi captures from outside of Paris, with showrunner Darren Star hinting that the production will once again be decamping to the French countryside (and possibly even to London or Berlin).
As for the release date? With filming only due to wrap this fall, Emily In Paris will likely be returning to screens this winter at the earliest—with a 2023 premiere seeming most likely. Plenty of time for Emily to fling that Breton cap into the Seine, then.
