PARIS: Culture clashes give way to personality clashes in Netflix’s “Emily in Paris,” according to creator Darren Starr, who recently joined the show’s cast members in the French capital for the world premiere of the third season. .
The new season of the television comedy starring Lily Collins as Emily Cooper, an American who moves from Chicago to Paris for a marketing job, will be released on December 21.
The show focuses more deeply on its characters, moving away from a play on the cliche of French and American lifestyles, to becoming a “clash of personalities,” said Starr, who is also the show’s executive producer and writer.
“She feels less like a fish out of water and more about embracing the culture around her,” said Collins, who plays the role.
Watched by 58 million households in its first month, the series debuted in 2020 at the height of the pandemic lockdown and became the most popular comedy on Netflix that year.
In the third season, actors Paul Forman and Melia Kreiling join as new cast members. “New characters come in and add a lot of new texture and complexity to the whole ensemble,” Starr said. (Reuters)
