This piece was written during the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strikes. We stand with the SAG-AFTRA. Without them, the movies and television shows we cover would not exist.
Emily in Paris is one of our favorite shows. We love it. We’re not going to even front on that. We do know that it’s partially ridiculous and that nothing would ever happen the way it does in the show, that’s okay. It is okay because we don’t mind suspending reality. We don’t mind getting lost in a dream life.
We love the characters. We love the show. We miss it.
While the WGA strike has ended, the SAG/AFTRA has not. There is hope for the strike to end to end soon. Variety reported that Netflix has started preparing – gearing up as you may – for production to begin early next year.
As you know, next year the Summer Olympics are in Paris and they are hoping to start production and wrap up before then. They are working with a short window and if they can’t get it filmed before the Olympics – well, it will be delayed again. From June to September shoots will be barred in Paris.
The series had been slated to film this summer but as we know, with the strike (which we support) it was delayed. The studio – Cité du Cinema studios, where the last three seasons were filmed – has been booked for the Olympic Games starting in mid-November, so the series will shoot at Studios Monjoie. This is all depending on what happens with the strike.
We’re hoping it’s not delayed, but if it is, we do understand. We love Emily in Paris and are willing to wait as long as it takes for another season.
