Cultural frictions are giving way to personality clashes on Netflix’s Emily in Paris, according to creator Darren Starr who recently joined the show’s cast in the French capital for the world premiere of its third season. The new season of the TV comedy starring Lily Collins as Emily Cooper, an American who moves to Paris from Chicago to work in marketing, will be released on December 21.
The series focuses more on its characters, moving away from a play on the clichés of French and American lifestyles, to become more of a “clash of characters,” said Starr, who also serves as executive producer and screenwriter. “She feels less about a fish out of water and more about embracing the culture around her,” Collins said of the character she plays.
Watched by 58 million households in its first month, the series debuted during the height of pandemic lockdowns in 2020 and became the most popular comedy on Netflix that year. In the third season, actors Paul Forman and Melia Kreiling join as new cast members. “The new characters come in and add a lot of new combinations and complexities to everything,” said Starr.
