‘Emily in Paris’ Season 5 Role Auctioned, but Netflix Denies Renewal

Emily In Paris

A potential fifth season of Netflix’s ‘Emily in Paris’ is making headlines, as a guest role for the unannounced new season was auctioned off at the amfAR Gala during the Cannes Film Festival. However, Netflix has not officially renewed the series, despite the auction and comments made by celebrities at the event.

At the amfAR Gala, which raises funds for HIV/AIDS research, supermodel Winnie Harlow and actress Paris Jackson presented a prize on behalf of the show’s creator, Darren Star. The prize was a walk-on role in ‘Emily in Paris’ season 5, and the winner bid 250,000 euros (approximately $271,121.50) for the opportunity.

Harlow and Jackson initially stated that season 5 would begin filming in mid-2025, but an individual with knowledge of the situation has since confirmed that Netflix has not greenlit the new season. The official amfAR auction website has been updated to reflect that the walk-on role is “contingent upon season 5 pickup.”

‘Emily in Paris’ season 4 will be released in two parts, with the first part debuting on August 15 and the second part following on September 12, 2024. The season will see Emily (Lily Collins) dealing with the fallout from the dramatic events of Camille (Camille Razat) and Gabriel’s (Lucas Bravo) wedding. With strong feelings for two men, Emily now faces the complication of Gabriel’s ex-wife being pregnant, as well as Alfie’s (Lucien Laviscount) confirmed suspicions about her and Gabriel.
