How many episodes are in Emily in Paris?
Emily in Paris will be arriving on Netflix on Friday, October 2 with all 10 episodes of the show dropping in one go on the platform.
The series is romantic comedy created, written and executive produced by Darren Star, who has previously worked on Younger and SATC.
Starring actress Lilly Collins as the titular Emily, the show sees the twentysomething embark on the adventure of a lifetime when she lands a dream job in Paris after the company she works for buys a French marketing firm.
Emily relocates to Paris, where she is enlisted to provide an American perspective to the newly-acquired French company and help revamp the social media strategy.
Along with working in the city, Emily finds love and surprises as she tries to juggle her work-life balance and gets into various entanglements and culture clashes.
Collins is joined by Frédéric Anscombre as Michel, Samuel Arnold as Julien, Lucas Bravo as Gabriel, Bruno Gouery as Luc, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu as Sylvie, and Ashley Park as Mindy Chen.
Other cast members include Camille Razat as Camille, Kate Walsh as Madeline, and William Abadie as Antoine Lambert.
Speaking about the inspiration for Emily in Paris, creator Star said: “I’ve wanted to do a show about an expatriate living in Paris for quite some time.
“When I was 19 I did the whole backpack tour of Europe for the summer, landed in Paris, and fell in love with the city.
“And I thought it would be great to share that feeling with an audience and create a show that would explore the overall experience of what it’s like to be an American abroad.
“Traveling and immersing yourself in a foreign culture renews you in a sense, and it opens your eyes to the world you.
“That exposure helps you perceive things in a really new and fresh way; you have to leave a lot of your preconceived notions behind.

“I think that’s something that Emily does in the series, and certainly something that I certainly did when I was making the show.”
Collins said she was drawn to the role because she was a big fan of SATC, which she “devoured” in secondary school.
She also found the part of Emily resonated with her, particularly her resilience and determination to succeed.
The To The Bone and Mirror Mirror actress explained: “When I wrote my book a few years ago, my dream was to be like Carrie Bradshaw and look out of a NYC apartment window and write about what I was inspired by and experienced.
“So cut to years later, I find myself being part of Darren’s universe and collaborating with both him and Patricia Field, and constantly having the feeling of “Is this real? This is amazing.”
Along with taking the lead in Emily in Paris, Collins also serves as an executive producer.
Emily does have similarities to SATC’s heroine Carrie, most notably her love of big and bold fashion.
In fact, Emily’s outfit in episode two of the series, where she dons a dress with a big tulle skirt, is a homage to Carrie’s look in the SATC finale.
While Carrie mixed up some of her wardrobe with designer pieces, Emily in Paris will be much more heavy on the couture and labels.
Costume designer Patricia Field, who previously worked with Star on SATC, said: “I think that my signature in costume design is my optimism — the colors, the daring outfits, and the idea that women everywhere can go into their closet and reimagine, remix what’s hanging there in ways they’ve never thought of before.
“For me, ‘normcore’ is a curse word. It’s all about bringing individualism and self-confidence to women.
“You don’t need to have designer clothes to mix things up — though we did go a little heavy on the designer element on this show, because she’s in Paris, after all.”
