Emily in Paris fans will be delighted to hear that season 3 is almost upon us - and we look at the release date, trailer and who's in the cast.

Lily Colins is back playing Emily Cooper in the third season of the hit Netflix series, but this time she finds herself at a crucial crossroads as she tries to choose between hot chef Gabriel (who is played by Lucas Bravo - and if you can't wait to see him on screen he's currently in the film Ticket to Paradise playing Julia Roberts' love interest), and new love interest Alfie, played by Lucien Laviscount. 

Just like Netflix viewers are keen to know all the details of Dead to Me season 3, now the same questions are being asked of Emily in Paris. Faced with two very different paths, Emily will have to decide exactly where her loyalties lie — both at work and in her romantic life — and what those decisions mean for her future in France, all while continuing to immerse herself in the adventures and surprising twists and turns that life in Paris provides. Here's all you need to know about the upcoming season...

Emily in Paris Season 3 trailer

The official Emily in Paris season 3 trailer was released on Wednesday 30 November. It reveals that Emily is at a crossroads in her life, pulling double-duty at her jobs and trying to choose between Gabriel and Alfie.

The season's official synopsis reads, "Emily will have to decide exactly where her loyalties lie — at work and in her romantic life — and what those decisions mean for her future in France, all while continuing to immerse herself in the adventures and surprising twists and turns that life in Paris provides."

What happened in Emily in Paris season 2?

Season two ended with a major cliff-hanger, in which Emily had to choose between accepting a job offer from her boss Madeline that would mean leaving Paris, or follow her mentor Sylvie to a new company.

Emily also found herself in a bit of a love triangle. The beginning of season 2 saw her carrying the guilt of a messy affair with chef Gabriel, which jeopardised her friendship with his ex-girlfriend Camille. However, by the end of the series all is forgiven: Camille is friends with Emily and she is reunited with Gabriel too. 

Also during season 2, the character of Alfie is introduced, a British man who Emily meets at her French class. Though their relationship is snarky at first, they soon start seeing each other, and when Alfie tells Emily he's returning to London, he proposes a long-distance relationship.

Will there be an Emily in Paris season 4?

Yes, Netflix commission both a third and fourth season of Emily in Paris at the same time. Lily Collins confirmed the news via her Instagram back in January 2022.

She wrote under the post: "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!!…"
