'Emily In Paris' is one of the top Netflix shows of all time. It is the Story of a girl, Emily Cooper, who moves to her dream city Paris from NYC for her career. Paris offers her with all kinds of mishaps that turn her life upside down in every aspect, be it her job or her love life.
Torn between her career and working with people in the Paris Office who despise her, the show follows her journey as she explores Paris and gets summoned into the madness it has to offer!
What to Expect from Season 3?
Well, season 2 left us on quite the cliffhanger. Let me remind you all that Emily was offered a job by Sylvie in her own company after Sylvie resigned from Savoir, all thanks to Madeline's controlling and compulsive behavior (Basically, Madeline being a Bitch!).
Sylvie takes on Luc and Julien while they all try to have Emily on board as well due to her way with all of the clients. Ironic right! The Emily whom Sylvie hated all along is the one Sylvie wants in her new company.
Unable to decide whether to stay in Paris or not, Emily goes to Mindy for advice who gets her to admit that she is in love with Gabriel. Emily goes to Gabriel's apartment to confess this but she sees that Camille is moving in with him which breaks her heart.
Running away from there, she goes to the Paris Bridge and stops there to call Sylvie and let her know that she has made her decision whether she'll join her company or not! This is where they left us.
Now, We have to see what Emily's decision was. How is Sylvie gonna react to it? What will be the consequences of her decision? Will she ever tell Gabriel about her feelings? How will Gabriel react?
How is this gonna affect her friendship with Camille? Finally, Is she going to be happy with the decision she made? We have to wait for season 3 to get all these questions answered but until then, Here are the main characters from Emily in Paris which are absolute fan favourites!
10. Madeline Wheeler
Played by Kate Walsh, Madeline Wheeler is the marketing director of the Gilbert group, a Chicago based company who take over Savoir. She was supposed to take on the job in Paris but she found out that
She was pregnant and hence she offered Emily, the opportunity to follow her lifelong dream to go to Paris. Her biggest flaw is that she lacks the capability to understand and hence does not cares about firm-client relations.
She just cares to make more and more money. She feeds into the French stereotypes and tries to appropriate their culture which irritates Sylvie, Luc and Julien among others. She considers Emily as her friend and confidant.
