‘Emily in Paris’ Season 3 Is a Drama-Filled Cheese-Fest You Can’t Help But Love

*Warning: Minor spoilers ahead*

Emily in Paris is returning for season 3, and it’s even more dramatic than previous installments. (No, really.) Since all ten episodes are now streaming on Netflix, we need to know: Is the new season worth the watch?

Keep reading for an honest review.

Emily in Paris season 3 picks up right where the previous installment ends. You know, with the employees quitting Savoir, starting a new firm and asking Emily (Lily Collins) to join them. They’re successful in their new endeavor, even if they don’t have a company name (yet).

Of course, there’s one slight problem. Both companies think Emily works exclusively for them, and it’s only a matter of time before they find out. And when the inevitable happens, it prompts client drama and dinner run-ins that’ll have you on the edge of your seat. In the end, Emily’s decision comes down to whether she wants to stay in Paris or return to the U.S.

Emily in Paris season 3 is undeniably over the top. The fashion is extreme (cue Emily’s extravagant butterfly wings at Pierre Cadault’s party). The comedy is borderline offensive (see Madeline’s blatant disregard for French culture). And the spiderweb of relationships requires a 3D map to understand (Camille and Gabriel and Alfie—oh my!).

But if it weren’t for these factors (and the McBaguette), the new season would likely fall flat. Instead, it offers a mindless escape from reality you can’t help but binge-watch, despite the cheesy one-liners and unrealistic story lines.

Plus, Emily’s disastrous career situation will make you feel better about whatever you’re going through. (The scenic Parisian sites are just icing on the cake.)

PureWow rating: 4 out of 5 stars

There’s no denying that Emily in Paris doesn’t have the same easygoing vibe as other titles—like Virgin River and Sweet Magnolias—because it thrives on satire. But the 30-minute episodes are very easy to follow and introduce enough new plotlines to make season 3 worth your time.
