What can we expect from the fourth season of Emily in Paris?
In Darren Star’s interview with Deadline, some minor details about what to expect in season four were revealed.
When they discussed the ongoing will not be energized between Emily and Gabriel, the star had this to say;
“Yes, they are star-crossed lovers, they really are. And I think a big question to think about for the next season is that Emily didn’t come to Paris for a romance, she came for a job, and I think they’re both in a different, more mature place in their lives, Emily and Gabriel, and definitely a more complicated place.»
It looks like we may get past season four before we see Emily and Gabriel finally hug. However, that’s not to say that this season can’t be filled with romantic moments between them.
When asked about Sofia, Camille’s secret lover, Star had the following to say;
“I think we could possibly see more of her. I don’t know if that’s a relationship that ended, and I think there was a romantic spark between the two of them that I feel like we’ve never seen between Camille and Gabriel. I feel like there’s a real passion between the two of them.»
Star also revealed what the apparent story theme for season four will be after being asked about Sylvie’s reconciliation with husband Laurent.
I think that’s going to be our theme for Season 4. Season 3 was all about making decisions. I think Season 4 is about balancing business and toxic relationships because that’s going to happen with a lot of our characters.
It looks like there’s going to be a lot of drama.
Emily is also rumored to be traveling to Rome at some point in Season 4.
When is Emily in Paris Is season 4 coming to Netflix?
With a production delay, it’s hard to speculate when we expect the series to return to Netflix.
At the time of this writing, there is an extremely small chance that the ongoing strike will end anytime soon. With the strike potentially ongoing for the remainder of 2023, this would push production into the first quarter of 2024 or even longer.
Thanks to a delay of this level, there’s a chance fans may have to wait patiently until 2025.
