Emily in Paris season three is urgently required after the Netflix show ended on a cliffhanger in season two, and fans are eagerly anticipating its release.
With plenty of stunning images of the city and more outrageous, brilliant, and flamboyant fashion choices than Vogue’s Instagram feed, Lily Collins’ character’s quest for life and love in the French capital has given the ideal guilty pleasure viewing.
Not to mention the parade of enticing guys who have swept her off her feet or sent her into a tailspin.
Collins is eager to get started, and she has some suggestions for where season three should go (via Collider).
“If we get to do season three, I’d be thrilled to do one of the two options. It’s ready for adventure and new adventures. Emily is shamelessly work-oriented, but she’s also a romantic at heart, which I admire.
“She is capable of being both. ‘Okay, where is your heart telling you to go?’ is one of those meta moments. I have no idea. I’m hoping we’ll get to make a decision and watch season three to find out.”
So, what’s going to happen now? Here’s what you’ll need to know…
Emily in Paris Season 3 Release Date
There is presently no word on when Emily in Paris will return to Netflix, but given that seasons 1 and 2 were both released in the latter half of 2020 and 2021, there is reason to expect that season 3 will follow suit. In the meanwhile, Netflix subscribers will have to wait for a formal announcement from the corporation. We can expect Emily in Paris Season 3 is premier in early 2022, possibly in June or July.

Emily in Paris season 3 plot: What’s going to happen?
Season three storylines have been on Darren Star’s mind for a while, and all roads lead back to a focus on the characters.
Star remarked, “I definitely have some ideas for season three” (via Collider). “But, in terms of many, many seasons, I believe that with series, your characters become more complicated as you discover new levels to your characters and new storytelling paths. When we have an ensemble like this, I’m always on the lookout for fresh possibilities in the form of small sprouts that emerge as the personalities grow more defined. In a way, that dictates the tale as it progresses.
“At the end of the day, it’s all about the characters. As an audience and as a writer, the more dimensionalized your characters are, the more you want to know what’s going to happen next. I’m always fascinated by the learning curve of what it means to be an expatriate in a foreign country. What method do you use to assimilate?
“How can you adapt to the point that you nearly feel like a native of your new home rather than where you came from?”
Because of this, don’t expect to hear anything about a final season any time soon.
“For a TV show, I don’t think you want to know what happens at the end. Because a movie has a clearly defined beginning, middle, and end, you should know what the ending will be before you begin writing your script.
“Otherwise, you’ll end yourself in the weeds. A TV series, on the other hand, is the polar opposite, in that you want to give your characters as many opportunities as possible.”
And there are numerous options.
Emily was faced with a major professional dilemma at the end of season two. Is she going to enjoy life in Paris or stick to her ties to her huge job offer in Chicago?
Whatever decision she makes, it will determine Emily’s future… or whether she stays in Paris at all.
It turns out that Paris has had an effect on her, and she finds herself torn when Sylvie gives her notice at Savoir, along with the rest of the team. Later on, Sylvie invites Emily to join her new team.
Madeline, Emily’s Chicago boss, is desperate to keep Emily on her side as well, telling her she can work her way up the firm and offering her the promotion she’s been vying for since she arrived in France.
Emily realizes she loves Gabriel while making this decision, despite her romance with British financier Alfie.
This comes at a good time, as Alfie has just returned to the UK after completing his work there (for reasons unrelated to Brexit, we’re told). Despite the distance, Alfie is determined to make things work. Is she willing to give her new love a chance?
Finally, she realizes where her heart belongs: with Gabriel. However, it appears that after going to his place, the revelation was too little, too late for her growing relationship with him.
Emily was furious when she realized… despite continually telling him to go on and get back with Camille, Emily finally admitted she loved him… Gabriel has since moved on and reconnected with Camille.
Emily pretends to be pleased, but she’s a terrible liar, and she quickly leaves to have an emotional moment on a bridge, reflecting on what she wants to accomplish with her life.
She is shown contacting Sylvie with her answer in the last seconds of season two, but the show cuts to black before we hear it.
