Ashley Park recently confirmed that she will be reprising her role as Mindy Chen on the fourth season of Netflix’s Emily in Paris. The actress revealed the good news on Instagram alongside a picture of her co-star Lily Collins, saying she was “medically cleared to work.” Park has been recovering from a critical septic shock that arose after contracting tonsolitis. Because of her condition, Park was forced to stay in the hospital. In the photo’s caption, which can be seen here, Park also stated that she’s excited to rejoin the Emily in Paris cast members for another fantastic season. She thanked her fans as well for their beautiful messages and support.
“I’m deeply moved and thankful for your beautiful messages of support and comfort, your personal stories of sepsis and hospitalization, and truly to every person who has reached out with love,” Park wrote underneath her post. “I’m sorry for the delay in responses, just wanted to update that I was medically cleared to fly after responding to treatments, and am now recovering and resting in Paris where I was greeted with this incredible warm welcome from loved ones and my Emily In Paris fam.”
She continued, “I couldn’t be more excited to join [them] all on set for Season 4. I promise [I’m] breathing through this all and taking as much care of myself as I can to get back into fighting shape. In the meantime, thanks for the couch cuddles, [Lily Collins].”
The fourth season is still in production, so there has yet to be an exact date for its release.
