The third season of Emily in Paris can’t come soon enough – and new details are emerging about what’s in store next for our favourite well-heeled Savoir employee. Translation: it looks like Emily’s love life will be very, very complicated.

Lily Collins (aka Emily) and the rest of the cast had a mini-reunion at Paley Fest in Los Angeles, where Deadline reported that Lucien Laviscount, who plays Emily’s dashing British love interest Alfie, is joining the show permanently for the yet-to-be-shot season three. Involved in a tres complex love triangle with Emily and Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), Alfie was a fan favourite – and the breakout star – of season two.

Fans are already speculating that his upgrade to series regular could mean that Emily Cooper will stay in Paris a little longer. The latest season ended with Emily being offered a new job by Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) who told her, “You’d have to stay in Paris for longer than you planned” if she accepted.

Wearing a very Emily-esque blue peplum Prabal Gurgung blazer and matching mini, Collins, 33, wrote on Instagram that she “cannot wait to start filming” the show’s new season, which was renewed for two more at Netflix. Collins posed on the black carpet with Bravo and Laviscount, along with co-stars Camille Razat (Camille) and Ashley Park (Mindy).

Production on series three is due to start in June. When asked on the Paley Fest panel about what advice she would give Emily, Collins said took cues from Park’s character, Mindy, who had urged Emily to stop doing what she thinks she “should”. Per Variety, Collins said she would ask Emily: ““What do you want to do, what is it you want, not what other people want you to do?” Collins mused. “It’s something that actually, I, myself, find myself in the same situation like, ‘oh, I should,’ and I have Mindy’s voice in my head, being like ‘stop thinking that way.’ So I’d tell her to get out of her own head.” Seems like sage advice, really.

Speaking to E! in December, Laviscount mused about why Emily was drawn to Alfie. “I think Emily needs someone that can just take her out of her bubble of working so hard,” Laviscount said. “I think Alfie gives her a great gateway to just be free and open and just to explore herself for herself without having to worry about anyone else. She can just be herself with Alfie. So if Alfie is that guy for her long-term, who knows?”

Netflix is yet to reveal when Emily in Paris’ third season will premiere though if the past two seasons are anything to go by, its likely ETA on the streaming service is December.
