Netflix has shared the following official synopsis for season four: “After the dramatic events of Camille and Gabriel’s misguided wedding, Emily is reeling: she has strong feelings for two men, but now Gabriel is expecting a baby with his ex, and Alfie’s biggest fears about she and Gabriel are confirmed. At work, Sylvie is confronted with a sticky dilemma from her past due to her marriage, and the Agence Grateau team makes personnel changes. Mindy and the band prepare for the Eurovision Song Contest, but when funds run out, they are forced to be frugal. The chemistry between Emily and Gabriel is undeniable as they work together toward a Michelin star, but two big secrets threaten to undo everything they’ve dreamed of.”

In a video announcing the show’s season four premiere dates, Collins and the rest of the cast teased the new season by sharing three words they think would describe the episodes.


Collins shared a video with viewers earlier this summer at Netflix’s TUDUM fan event, where she teased a bit about what people can expect, mainly “answers” for all the big cliffhangers from season three. Will Emily and Gabriel finally get together? Is Alfie still heartbroken? Will Gabriel get his Michelin star? Are Mindy and the band going to the Eurovision Song Contest?

“It’s safe to say we ended last season on a dramatic note, and it was a surprise! It doesn’t end there,” she said in the video, adding, “What I can tell you is that we have more fun, more fashion and of course more drama in store for you all. Emily will have to decide if everything she ever wanted is really what she needs, and while Emily’s heart will always remain true to Paris, her life takes some unexpected turns this season. Don’t be surprised if you find her on a Roman holiday.’


In interviews after the end of season three, Star teased a few more things he would like to explore further in the next season, such as Camille and Sofia’s relationship. There is also a lot of uncertainty in the air for Mindy and Nicolas (Paul Forman). Where does she stand with Benoit (Kevin Dias)?

“Nicolas is a very smart character, but I think he’s also a difficult guy,” the creator said TV Guide. “I think he kind of represents the Mindy that used to be, who she feels very comfortable with. Benoit is kind of her artistic soul, and I think there’s a real struggle there. She has both sides of her competing for her priority.

Star also explained that season four will be even more about navigating complicated personal and work relationships than has been the case thus far. The season three finale blew things up for Alfie, Gabirel, Camille and Emily, who all work together in some capacity, live in the same area and are intertwined in more ways than one.

As the show has expanded from one point of view (Emily’s) to more of an ensemble, the showrunner shared Glamour he anticipates that audiences will learn even more about Sylvie and other characters than they currently do. “From the beginning, she is a character who does not want to be known,” he explained to the magazine about the marketing executive. “You look at the stories from different perspectives. I think now that we see the world a little bit from Sylvie’s point of view, we’ll learn more about Sylvie.”

While Star isn’t sure exactly how long he wants the show to last, he has a few different ideas about how the show could end, but he isn’t committed to a possible final storyline.

“As the show evolves, so does your idea of ​​where the characters are going,” he said. “They create their own momentum when you introduce new characters. The characters take on a life of their own and take you in an unexpected direction. So I don’t like to have hard and fast ideas about where it should end, because I feel like, just like in life, the characters will take you in different directions.
