Netflix released the official trailer for the third season of “Emily in Paris” on Wednesday. The show follows Emily (Lily Collins) as she navigates life as an American working in Paris.
Ashley Park plays Mindy, an aspiring singer who moved to Paris to free herself from her family’s expectations. She becomes a close friend and confidant to Emily, who struggles to connect with the Parisians she works with.
In a recent interview with E!Online, Park said audiences can expect to see more musical numbers from Mindy.
“With the music in season three, it feels like we’re exploring really different genres and really different parts of Mindy,” Park said. “I come from a musical theater background, so I really love when a song or performance isn’t just about the performance, but there’s storytelling in it.”
Park said Mindy’s experience is reminiscent of her time in New York.
“Her experience in Paris is like when I went to New York,” Park told E!Online. “I was like, ‘I’m gonna be a waitress, I’m going to work at Juice Press, I’m going to be a tutor, I’m going to be all these different things to try to make ends meet.’ I think for her, she’s trying to figure out a plan and even she gaslights herself to be like, ‘Do I even deserve this?’ What we see in season two, and you will see more in season three, is she’s trying to figure out ‘What is my dream?'”
