Emily in Paris: This character is about to play a major part in season 3

Yeah, yeah, Netflix, just hurry up already.

We assume you were just like us, and literally devoured season 2 of Emily in Paris the minute it dropped on Netflix back in December of last year.

So it is needless to say that when Lily Collins herself confirmed the news that Netflix has picked up both a season 3 and 4 of the hit show, we were delighted. Now all that is left to do is wait.

And by the sound of things, we bet it will be worth it too – especially after the show’s creator, Darren Star, announced that actor Lucien Laviscount will be making a return as the dreamy Alfie.

In fact, according to Deadline, Laviscount has been promoted to an Emily in Paris series regular for the new installment – and can we all agree this is great news?

Just to recap, in season two, London-based businessman Alfie and Emily (played by Collins) met in a French class.

Their friendship soon after flourished into a budding romantic relationship after they admitted they had started to have feelings for each other.

Howeer, as we all know, season deux, of course, ended with him leaving Paris and returning to the UK.

But – now that we know that this was not the last we saw of Alfie, we cannot wait to see what will happen in season 3.

Back in December, the showrunner sat down with TVLine and teased what fans should expect from the upcoming season.

“[Emily’s] faced with a major decision. She has reasons to pick a number of doors at the end of season two, and our challenge is deciding which of those doors she’s going to choose and why,” Star told the outlet. “That’s what season three 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 is going to be struggling with that, as well.”

So now, Netflix, if you could just speed up a little with the filming – Merci Beaucoup!!…
