Caught between two jobs and two men, Emily cannot decide whether to keep it all together or head back to Chicago.
Emily in Paris Season 3 continues straight from where the second season has ended. In season 2, we watched Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) facing the dilemma of moving back to Chicago or staying in Paris.
The new season starts with Emily, who is trying to get the best of both worlds, as she continues to work with her heavily pregnant American boss Madeline (Kate Walsh), while also agreeing to join Sylvie’s (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) new company.
Emily is petrified with nightmares of facing her two bosses when they find out about her work for both of them. And while in panic mode, Emily gives herself a hasty makeover as she cuts her bangs.
The scrambled love life is still there. Emily is still dating Alfie (Lucien Laviscount). Although his return to London is coming closer, the duo must decide where they stand on making the relationship work. And Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) has now moved in with Camille (Camille Razat). Even though the spark remained, they appears to work together as friends.
Emily in Paris Season 3 Review
Emily returns for a third season with her world in chaos and the story continues from where it was left in season 2.
Despite the divisive reviews, the first season of Emily in Paris was hard to ignore. Be it the charm of Parisian locations or the costume department’s challenge to make Emily Cooper the new generation Carrie Bradshaw in terms of street fashion, the show has continued to grab eyeballs. The second season also saw a bit of positive change from the first one as it scored better in terms of self-awareness and also added layers to its storytelling.
And now, the third season continues to take things forward and try to give Emily and those surrounding her some better plot twists. The forced craziness remains, although there is the underlying focus on Cooper being the savior for all as she continues to prove to be an American marketing genius in the French world.
This season’s theme seems better in terms of Emily trying to find what is best for her, as opposed to her chasing after the idea of a life in Paris.
The scrambled relationship is still there as the lingering chemistry between Emily and Chef Gabriel continues to smolder. Even though Gabriel and Camille are giving it another go, Emily is trying to be a friend to them both. And Emily has a boyfriend called Alfie.
Creator Darren Star has made sure to keep the signature features of the series alive. Emily continues to miraculously ace every pitch at the agency, she wrings in quick solutions and often saves the day for her clients.
Emily in Paris does not make much sense and is also relentlessly chirpy. But, it is clothes that steal the show. The clothes are bright and hypnotically elegant. The series is high on fashion but low on drama.
As for Emily’s lingering passion and unfinished business with Chef Gabriel, sadly, it is still unfinished and is bundled with a new twist and cliffhanger ending.
Emily in Paris season 3 seems a bit repetitive now in its treatment and, the storyline lacks some freshness.
Nevertheless, Emily in Paris fits perfectly as a holiday season watch. The series and Emily’s life, in particular, may be too absurd and larger than life, but frankly, it is fun.
