At the point when we thought Euphoria couldn’t get more intense, season 2 opened with Fezco’s grandmother shooting his abusive dad in the legs. Certainly, fans anticipated medications, betrayal, and sex with violence sprinkled in between, yet creator Sam Levinson certainly astonished us with an onslaught in the HBO drama’s sophomore chapter: Rue’s breakdown, Cassie’s secret affair, Cal’s penis, and obviously, Lexi’s all-too-revealing play
The adult drama is without a doubt one of HBO‘s most famous series, and regardless of pundits’ vocal judgment of the show’s graphic content — and inconsistent plot — fans and haters alike couldn’t help but tune in every Sunday. In this way, it’s no shocker that before the 2nd season ended, Euphoria was renewed for a 3rd.
“Sam, Zendaya, and the entire cast and crew of Euphoria have taken season 2 to extraordinary heights, challenging narrative convention and form, while maintaining its heart,” Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Programming, said in a statement when the renewal was announced. “We couldn’t be more honored to work with this gifted, wildly talented team or more excited to continue our journey with them into season 3.”
When will season 3 premiere?
Fans aren’t exactly eager to hang tight for another two years for more Euphoria episodes — and ideally they will not need to. COVID-19 halted season 2 production, which pushed the release date later than expected; however since health restrictions on sets have loosened, the wait should’t be as long this time around. The specific release date has not yet been announced.
Who will be in the cast?
We’re expecting to see series regulars Zendaya, Hunter Schafer, Angus Cloud, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Sydney Sweeney, Barbie Ferreira, Maude Apatow, Nika King, Storm Reid, and Austin Abrams once again, however we’ll need to sit tight for true affirmation from HBO. Concerning season 2 newcomers Dominic Fike and Chloe Cherry, there’s no word yet if they’ll be back.
What will season 3 be about?
We can likewise expect a few updates on Rue and Jules’ friendship. The friends-turned-lovers ended their romance when Jules told Rue’s mom regarding her drug use. Albeit the pair briefly talked at the end of Lexi’s play, they’re as yet not totally reunited as friends or as lovers. However, maybe that is a positive thing.
King, who portrays Rue’s mom, Leslie, hopes there could be room to explore the character’s back story. She told Entertainment Weekly, “Season 3, I’m hoping to see maybe a little more backstory, like where does she work? We never had that conversation. I know in my head where she works; she’s got multiple jobs. But I think it’ll be fun to see where she comes from.”
