The official Emily in Paris Instagram account used two photos of Collins in another post, captioning: "Hello Paris! Season 4 of Emily in Paris is in the works." Although many fans also posted received enthusiastic reviews, but others were worried about what it would mean for Ashley Parker, who plays Mindy. On the same day Collins announced the start of production on Season 4, Parker broke the news that she was recovering after a health crisis.

Luckily, Emily and her best friends, not to mention Collins and Parker, will be reunited soon. Parker responded to Collins' post, sharing how much she's looking forward to resuming work on the series. "[I] can't even begin to express how excited I am to meet you guys and be able to join you soon," she wrote after first gushing about her co-star's Eiffel Tower outfit.
