According to the show’s creator, Darren Star, who recently joined the show’s cast members in the city of Paris for the global debut of the third season of Emily in Paris, cultural frictions give birth to personality confrontations in the show. Emily in Paris is currently streaming on Netflix.
On December 21, the new season of the television comedy featuring Lily Collins as Emily Cooper, an American who relocates from Chicago to Paris for a job in marketing, will be made available to watch on television.
According to Star, who is also the show’s executive producer and writer, the program is moving away from a play on the stereotypes of French and American ways of life in order to become more of a “clash of personalities.” This shift in the show’s focus allows for a more in-depth exploration of its characters.
Collins stated in regard to the role that she plays that the character she portrays, “She feels less of a fish out of water and more about embracing the culture around her.”
The series premiered in 2020, during the height of pandemic lockdowns, and quickly rose to become Netflix’s most popular comedy of that year. It was watched by 58 million households in its first month of availability.
Paul Forman and Melia Kreiling have been cast in their respective roles as series regulars beginning with the third season. “New characters come in and provide a lot of new texture and complexities for the entire ensemble,” said Star. “When new characters come in, it adds a lot of new texture and complications.”
