Emily in Paris’ star “Lucien Laviscount” will continue to be seen on the screen for the third season, Netflix announced Sunday. Lucien Laviscount plays the role of Alfie, a sarcastic and charming born and raised in London.
Alfie and Emily meet in French class, where their fast friendship quickly turns into a romantic one. The series was said to have been renewed for a third and fourth season in January. The plot revolves around Emily (played by Lily Collins). She is a Chicago marketing executive sent to Paris to work with the French firm Savoir that Emily’s company acquired back in the US.
Towards the end of Season 2, Emily is presented with an offer to join her French firm’s boss Sylvie at her new marketing firm. What happens next? The third season will unfold.
At the same time, Emily’s personal life is in complex knots. Alfie informed her that he would be moving back to London but still wanted to try long-distance. Emily, however, decides to follow her heart and finally tell Gabriel, after all that circled them, that she loves him. But just as Emily was about to confess her feelings, Gabriel’s ex Cami stepped out from behind him, revealing that they had reunited and were moving in again.
The season ends with the scene afterward when Emily bolts and calls up Sylvie to tell her she has made her choice.
“She’s faced with a major decision. She has reasons to pick from a lot of choices from Season 2, and our challenge is deciding which of those doors should we make her choose and why,” Darren Star previously announced in an interview. “That’s what Season 3 is going to be about. When you live in a foreign country, one of the questions is, where’s your heart? Is it the place you came from, or the place you are at the moment? Emily will struggle with that too.”
And although Emily quite evidently has “very strong feelings” for Gabriel, destiny has some other plans for Alfie since he doesn’t deserve to be disappointed. “I love Alfie, personally, and I will never write Alfie off, and I don’t think Emily will, either,” Star said, highlighting that “London’s not far from Paris.
