If you are wondering if you should start the Emily in Paris series on Netflix, I definitely recommend it. The series recently released its third season, and you can see it exclusively on Netflix. It is a relatively quick watch with episodes spanning from 20 to 30 minutes each. The show follows Chicago marketing executive Emily Cooper who is hired to provide an American perspective to a marketing firm in Paris. In the first two seasons, she adapts to her life in Paris as well as her coworkers, who follow different customs than her. This show also includes friendship and relationship drama. Emily in Paris is pretty much the perfect escape from everyday life; the acting is engaging, the visuals are gorgeous, and the outfits are impeccable. It is by far one of the best parts of the show is the fashion. 

The third season starts with Emily’s world in chaos. The French staff has exited the marketing firm Savoir to set up on their own, and her American boss Madeline is attempting to pick her way through the cultural confusions of the French luxury market. Luckily, she has Emily by her side, though Emily is simultaneously trying to work for the French firm and for Madeline. Still, everyone wants Emily and wants to help her out. She is now a successful influencer and seemingly a marketing genius. The first few episodes focus mostly on Emily’s dilemma. Now that she can speak a little French, she wants to stay in Paris rather than move back to Chicago as planned. That means making a lot of difficult life-changing decisions, but with the support of the people around her, she manages to be successful. 

I actually haven’t seen the new season yet but as soon as I get a free moment I will do so, that show is a guilty pleasure.

Emily’s personal life is also going great. She now has a boyfriend named Alfie, and although their relationship was a little rough at first, they eventually work it out and seem to have a great relationship. But that lingering chemistry between Emily and chef Gabriel (her ex!) continues, even though Gabriel and Camille are giving it another go, and Emily is trying to be a friend to them both.

The show also has a subplot with Emily’s best friend, Mindy, who is beginning to get more job opportunities as a singer and is trying to manage these new opportunities along with relationship problems and her band. 

By the end of the season, things seem to go awry and the show is left on a big cliffhanger not so subtly hinting that there will be a season 4. To this, I personally could not be more overjoyed. 

I’m not saying that the show is a cinematic masterpiece or anything that great by any means, but it is a feel-good show that provides a marvelous escape from reality which I know that everyone needs sometimes.
