So, if you are wondering what new updates have been released so far, then we can assure you that you have reached the right place to know all your answers about the much-anticipated fourth season, which we definitely think is going to captivate the audience once again as it has done for the previous successful seasons. Here is everything we know so far about Netflix’s Emily in Paris Season 4.
Emily in Paris Season 4: Are there any latest updates in July 2023?
As of writing this, one thing is pretty much clear the majority of the information relating to the fourth season has been kept under wraps, which isn’t surprising as we are certain that the network doesn’t want any spoilers early, which can eventually tamper with the interest of the audience. The other reason for such a delay in releasing some new updates is the fact that the ongoing 2023 Writers Guild of America strike has had a huge impact on the overall production of the many Netflix series.
Due to the strike, the majority of production houses have started to put their work on hold, as the writers are refusing to resume their work until a proper decision has been made regarding their compensation. After all, writers are the backbone of the industry and are crucial players in creating some of the best work in recent years, and their needs should be fulfilled! As a result, the same has happened to Emily in Paris as the strike put a temporary halt by two months in the filming.

Sadly, the roadblocks don’t end right here, as this isn’t the only hurdle the industry will be facing in the coming weeks. According to recent reports, a possible actor’s strike is also heading the network’s way. As tense negotiations between the Hollywood actors’ union and the major studios, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) are still underway. The contract is now confirmed to expire on July 12 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.
The actors union and the studios and networks group have also said in a joint statement:
“The parties will continue to negotiate under a mutually agreed-upon media blackout.” Due to this, actors might still stay on the job for now, but everything can take a complete 360-degree turn, and an actor’s strike can begin sooner than later, causing them to join hands with the writer, which may cause many series to postpone their release date despite evaluating the overall reception and viewership, which will be quite disadvantageous and should be taken with a grain of salt!
So, if any possible agreement isn’t made before the deadline, the chance of both writers and actors being held together will increase the chances of production being delayed for more weeks. Due to this, we are certain that the show creators will try their best not to release any new updates in the month of July 2023, as it will be premature to put an official stamp on such details, which are still subject to change and should be confirmed once the situation reaches a proper resolution.
At last, we know that it’s been a while since the renewal was announced, so we predict that the only possible update that can be soon disclosed will be a revised schedule with new release dates in case filming doesn’t resume this summer season as it was stopped a month ago on June 6, 2023. In the meantime, we have listed down all the details as a comprehensive summary that has so far been made public, as it provides a fairly good insight into what the fans can expect from the fourth season until there is an official statement issued by the network.

When was Emily in Paris Season 4 renewed?
The fourth season of Netflix’s drama comedy series Emily in Paris was announced on January 10, 2021, alongside a Season 3 announcement.
Emily in Paris Season 4 production status
As stated above, the filming has been put on hold, and it has been delayed due to the writer’s strike. But we speculate it will commence once the strike reaches a resolution, as it’s only then that the actors can get the proper time to resume their work with respect to the scripts created by the writers that will follow up the series storyline and character arcs, which the audience loves to watch.
Emily in Paris Season 4 potential release date
Due to unforeseen circumstances, there is a chance the creators might aim for the show’s return sometime in early to mid-2024 instead of a late 2023 release on Netflix. One of the main reasons for this release window is that post-production also needs time to complete the editing, which can take up to months due to the additional workload. Of course, this is all conjecture, and the network will confirm these details in the coming months as production wraps up on time.
What has recently been hinted at about the potential plotlines?
According to Deadline, Star stated, “I think that will be our theme for Season 4. Season 3 was about making choices. I think Season 4 is about how to balance business and toxic relationships because that’s going to be happening with a lot of our characters.” Additionally, moving on to Mindy and possibly the biggest question about Season 4. Will we see Eurovision on the show, and will you film at the real event? To which Star replied, “I don’t know what the details of filming are but I think that our plan is to go to Eurovision next season, we’re all set up for it. And I think we’ve got a deserving song. I love that song, “Mon Soleil,” I think it would definitely be a worthy entry.”
That’s not all! Much to viewers’ delight during Netflix Tudum: A Global Fan Event, which was live-streamed from São Paulo, Brazil, the lovely Lily Collins (Emily Cooper), surprised fans by dropping some clues during the Global Netflix Tudum event. Collins suggested what the next season will answer: “Is Alfie still heartbroken?”, “Will Gabriel get his Michelin star?”, “Will Mindy and the band go to Eurovision?”, “Will Sylvie’s rekindled love last?” and the question on all of our minds: “Will Emily and Gabriel finally get together?”
Collins also suggested that Season 4 will include “more fun, more fashion, and of course, more drama.” Adding more credibility to the theme for the next season, creator Darren Star told Tudum about Emily and Gabriel’s relationship, quoting, “These are two characters who are star-crossed lovers. They have a lot of passion for one another. They have things that are getting in their way, but, at the same time, I feel like every season, in a strange kind of way, their relationship deepens.”
Last but not least, Lily Collins also stated that in the new episodes, Emily would be heading to a different place! Yes, you guessed it right, a visit to another iconic European city is finally happening in the next season. “We have more fun, more fashion, and of course more drama in store,” she said. Further hinting, “While Emily’s heart will always remain true to Paris, her life takes some unexpected twists this season. Don’t be surprised to find her on a Roman holiday.”
Take a look at the official Emily in Paris Season 4 announcement clip as shared on Netflix’s YouTube channel below:

There can be some new cast members introduced or some surprise cameos in the fourth season, which will be confirmed once the episode starts to premiere on Netflix!
In a Deadline interview, Starr also mentioned Melia Kreling, who played Camille’s Greek lover in Season 3, teasing that she might be back. “I think quite possibly we could see more of her. I don’t know that that is a relationship that’s over, and I think that there was a romantic spark between the two of them that I feel like we’ve never seen between Camille and Gabriel. I feel like there’s like some real passion there between the two of them.”
How many episodes will be there in Emily in Paris Season 4?
The upcoming season is expected to have a total of 10 episodes with an average runtime of 24 to 38 minutes, just like the prior seasons. On the other hand, the episode titles and synopsis of the series are not released yet. The network will publish those details when the episodes are due to air on the streaming service. So, we would advise fans to be patient and binge-watch all the prior seasons to recall the overall storyline.
Where to watch Emily in Paris?
When Emily in Paris Season 4 draws close to its release date along with the prior seasons, it will be available exclusively on Netflix, with other series of the same genre also accessible on the streaming platform with a range of membership options depending on the package you choose. The basic membership starts at $9.99/month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49/month at no additional cost with any of their services.
Is there any trailer for the fourth season?
Unfortunately, the network has not yet released any new teasers for the new season of Emily in Paris, as the filming is currently at a temporary halt due to the 2023 Writers Guild of America strike, which hasn’t come to a resolution yet. In the meantime, check out the official trailer for the third season to recall what transpired in the overall story and characters arcs of the beloved series that followed:
“One year after moving from Chicago to Paris for her dream job, Emily finds herself at a crucial crossroads in every aspect of her life. Faced with two very different paths, Emily will have to decide exactly where her loyalties lie — at work and in her romantic life — and what those decisions mean for her future in France, all while continuing to immerse herself in the adventures and surprising twists and turns that life in Paris provides.”
For the third season, Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 65% based on 17 reviews, with an average rating of 5.7/10. The website’s critics’ consensus reads, “Emily in Paris’ bubbly watch ability keeps threatening to go flat in a third season that seems content to spin its wheels, but this gallic travelogue will still be a pleasant enough journey for fans.” Metacritic gave the season a weighted average score of 54 out of 100 based on 10 reviews, indicating “mixed or average reviews.”
