Emily in Paris season 3 cast — who is returning to the show?

Emily in Paris wouldn't be Emily in Paris without, well... Emily! Lily Collins has played the 29-year-old aspiring marketing consultant from Chicago for three seasons now, and viewers can't get enough of Emily's life dramas as she continues to navigate her way through living in Paris after moving there for a social media job at the luxury French agency, Savoir. 

Fans of the show will know while Emily's career hasn't been easy thanks to that fish-out-of-water feeling she's struggled with since moving to the French capital, her love life has also been something of a rollercoaster — and that's putting it mildly! 

In season one she found herself caught in a love triangle between new friend Camille (Camille Razat) and hunky chef Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), which then became even messier when new romantic interest, Alfie (Lucien Laviscount), a handsome English ex-pat from Emily's French language class, was introduced in season 2. 

Lily played Fantine in the BBC adaptation of Les Misérables, co-starred with Zac Efron in the drama Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile and starred opposite Simon Pegg in the thriller Inheritance. 

Ashley Park as Mindy

Every main character needs a faithful sidekick, and Mindy is everything a girl needs in a BFF. Luckily for Emily, Mindy not only always has her back but she is also an excellent advice giver... so whether Emily is debating her complicated love life or making massive life choices, Mindy is there offering words of wisdom or a shoulder to cry on. 

Mindy also has her own life dramas and spent much of season 2 hiding the fact that she's actually the billionaire heiress of a Shanghai zipper manufacturing company and not a struggling busker like her bandmate and boyfriend Benoit. 

Ashley Park is an award-winning stage star most notably playing Gretchen Wieners in the 2018 Tony Award-nominated musical Mean Girls. She has also starred in films including Mr. Malcolm's List.

Lucas Bravo as Gabriel

Emily had barely stepped off the plane from Chicago when she bumped into Gabriel in her apartment block and fell head over heels for the hot French chef. Just one problemo though... Gabriel might be able to pull off those chef whites like no one else, but he also just so happens to be dating Emily's friend, Camille. Told you it was complicated.

Lucas Bravo has also appeared in movies including Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris and Ticket to Paradise. 

Lucien Laviscount as Alfie

What's the best way to forget your feelings for a handsome chef? Start dating a handsome English ex-pat of course! Alfie, played by former Coronation Street star Lucien Laviscount, came into Emily's life just at the right moment, and soon the pair hit it off quicker than you can say bonjour... but is Alfie the love of Emily's life? Or is he just a handy distraction? 

As well as Coronation Street, Lucien has also appeared in Snatch, Your Christmas or Mine? and Trust

Camille Razat as Camille

In season 1 Camille took Emily under her wing showing her around Paris as she found her feet in the new city. But while Emily soon formed a close bond with Camille, who also happens to have parents who run a successful French champagne company, she also found herself caught up in a complicated love triangle when she fell head over heels for Camille's boyfriend, Gabriel. Oops! 

Camille has also starred in a number of movies, including The 15:17 to Paris. 

Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu as Sylvie Grateau

Sylvie Grateau was the no-nonsense chief marketing officer for Savoir's in Paris when Emily arrived in the French capital and took little notice of the American girl who had come to work for her. Despite her hard-as-nails demeanor, Sylvie secretly developed a soft spot for Emily (despite the fact she can still speak very little French, something that drives Sylvie mad), and by the end of season 2, Sylvie offered Emily a new job working with her. 

Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu is also known for her role as Monique Ritz in The Crown, and comedy-drama Call My Agent!

Kate Walsh as Madeline Wheeler

Madeline is the Director of Marketing at the Gilbert Group and is the woman responsible for Emily's move from Chicago to Paris. While Sylvie is chillier than a winter's morning in Paris, Emily's American boss couldn't be more different, entering the room like a whirlwind of warmth. The two women clashed from the moment they met, not only because they are so different in personality, but also because they are polar opposites when it comes to business. Madeline cares deeply about Emily... something that doesn't come naturally to Sylvie. 

Kate Walsh has starred in countless TV shows including Grey's Anatomy, Bad Judge, 13 Reasons Why and The Umbrella Academy

Season 3 also sees Emily's work contacts returning... Bruno Gouery is back as Luc, Samuel Arnold returns as Julien and Christophe Bouvet as French designer Pierre Cadault.
