This French show is easily one of the best things you can watch on Netflix right now.
It seems to be a common theme in 2021 that all the best shows on Netflix are French or not in the English language.
Case in point, two of my favourite shows and also two of the best-performing series on Netflix are Lupin and Call My Agent.
OK, so Season 4 of Call My Agent has just been released on Netflix and it’s already got people talking.
Over here in France, which is where I’m based for the time being (thanks Covid. I actually love France), Call My Agent is in the number 4 position on Netflix’s Top 10 list.
Lupin is in the number 2 position and Fate: The Winx Saga is in at number one (somehow).
What’s going on with Call My Agent Season 5? Is it happening?
Right. So. Let’s get back to Call My Agent Season 4. The first three seasons of the show recently ended up on Netflix.
It’s not technically a Netflix original. What Netflix did was purchase the show, which was made by France 2.
It’s now available all over the world on Netflix apart from in Spain and Portugal for some reason.
Here’s Call My Agent Season 4’s plot synopsis:
Tantrums. Treachery. Secret flings. When you work with stars this big, the juiciest dramas play out behind the scenes.
This season of Call My Agent! sees ASK recruit a new senior agent from Starmedia, for better or worse. Meanwhile, Andréa and the team will have to fight for the custody of their clients. And what clients! Charlotte Gainsbourg, Sigourney Weaver, Jean Reno and more feature.
Why isn’t there going to be a Call My Agent Season 5 On Netflix?
The show is about a group of agents who work for ASK and it maps their struggles to keep their actors happy and keep their personal lives going whilst working a very, very stressful job. The job also takes up most of these agents’ time, and it’s all so that they can get 10% of these actors’ salaries.
The show stars Camille Cottin as Andréa Martel, Thibault de Montalembert as Mathias Barneville, Grégory Montel as Gabriel Sarda, Liliane Rovère as Arlette Azémar and Fanny Sidney as Camille Valentini to name but a few of the great actors in this show.
I think that Camille Cottin will end up getting a lot of offers after this show is done. Oh yes, speaking of the show being done and what will happen with Call My Agent Season 5, it’s not happening. The show hasn’t been cancelled. The show’s creators think that they’ve told the story they wanted to tell.
Will there be a Call My Agent movie?
Call My Agent’s producers Aurélien Larger and Harold Valentin of Mother Productions revealed to Variety that the fourth season is set to be the show’s final season. Here’s what they had to say on the matter:
With these characters, we feel we’ve told what needed to be told. Rather than do something like The Good Wife where we split the team and create an antagonist or enemy, we are happy with what we’re doing. It’s the right time to close the show.
They were then asked about where a Call My Agent film could happen. Valentine didn’t say it wouldn’t. He did say that they’d have to find the “right story” and the right trigger for the story.
