Disappointing news for people who love a good time: production on season 4 of Emily in Paris has stopped. That said, we ease the wait with 5 programs that you can enjoy while the new installment of the magnificent love and fashion series is reactivated.
We’ll have to wait a little longer before returning to the City of Light for the fourth season of Emily in Paris. Whether he watches it to gawk at Emily’s (Lily Collins) outlandish outfits, to distract from its strange but comforting brand of escapism, or simply because he sees it as the kind of thing he can’t look away from, he doesn’t. There is no wrong way to enjoy this series. It’ll be a while before we find out what new guys Emily is making out with on the streets of Paris, so why not pass the time with equally brilliant spectacles.
Call my agent
If you want a show set in France that’s actually about French people and not the American girl, try Call My Agent on Netflix. Like Emily in Paris, It’s about working people, specifically, four agents at a Parisian talent agency who juggle the careers of their temperamental clients while trying to keep their personal lives separate from the business. Things change after the sudden death of their company’s founder (Sigourney Weaver and Isabelle Huppert) are among those who have appeared to play an exaggerated version of themselves.
The Bold Type
The protagonist of Emily in Paris is a successful millennial moving up in the world, and we like to think she’d be friends with the women in Freeform’s similar comedy-drama, The Bold Type. The program stars Katie Stevens, Aisha Dee and Meghann Fahy as three women in their 20s who work at the fictional fashion magazine Scarlet. Inspired by the life and career of former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Joanna Coles, the series explores the challenges today’s young women face as they try to build their careers, and can be streamed on Hulu.
Like Emily in Paris, Bitter Sweet is a fish-out-of-water story about a young woman navigating her new life and new job in a new place. Unlike Emily in Paris, Tess (Ella Purnell) ends up in New York City and gets a job as a waitress at a fancy restaurant instead of a fancy marketing company.. She’s like a much darker Emily and you can watch her story on Starz.
Jane the Virgin
Everyone loves a good love triangle, and Jane the Virgin, now on Netflix, a soap opera about A young woman who is accidentally artificially inseminated presents one of the best love triangles we have seen in years. Over the course of the show’s five seasons, Jane Villanueva (Gina Rodríguez) is torn between two men, Rafael (Justin Baldoni) and Michael (Brett Dier). Like Emily in ParisJane is at a crossroads in her life.
The Mindy Project
Emily in Paris is a romantic comedy within a workplace comedy, so if that’s what you’re looking for, check out the Fox-turned-Hulu series, The Mindy Project. The show was created by Mindy Kaling, who plays Dr. Mindy Lahiri, a romantic comedy-obsessed gynecologist who is surrounded by several strange characters and co-workers as she tries to find love and happiness in New York while achieving professional success.
