All You Need to Know About ‘Euphoria’ Season 3: Cast, Release Date, Plot, Production Delays, and More

The Future of ‘Euphoria’: Will Season 3 Ever Come to Screens?

There is no shortage of questions about the future of Euphoria. After the tragic death of series star Angus Cloud, the rumors surrounding creator Sam Levinson’s other controversial series, The Idol, and the numerous other projects that the talented cast have signed onto in the interim, many wonder if the show’s planned third season will ever come to screens.

Production was delayed in 2023 due to Cloud’s death and the labor strike dispute between the studios and the WGA and SAG-AFTRA, and the show hit another setback in March 2024 when Deadline was the first to announce that filming on Euphoria season 3 had been pushed back, adding that the scripts for the upcoming season were still in the works.

In a statement to ET, a spokesperson for HBO said, “HBO and Sam Levinson remain committed to making an exceptional third season. In the interim, we are allowing our in-demand cast to pursue other opportunities.”


You’d have to be living under a rock not to know what the Emmy-winning actress has been up to since Euphoria season 2. The mononymous star has kept plenty busy since February 2022, winning two Emmys for her portrayal of Ruby “Rue” Bennett and promoting Dune: Part Two and her upcoming tennis drama, Challengers.

Sydney Sweeney
A breakout star from the show, Sweeney has been busy starring in five new films in 2023 and 2024, hosting Saturday Night Live, and starring in a new music video from The Rolling Stones. She also made a major physical transformation to play real-life whistleblower Reality Winner in the film Reality.

Colman Domingo
Another Euphoria star, Domingo has been busy with awards season and starring in several films, including The Color Purple musical and Rustin, which earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. He is set to take on the role of Joe Jackson in the Michael Jackson biopic, Michael.

Jacob Elordi
Elordi has also been busy amid the Euphoria hiatus, starring in four films in 2023, including Priscilla and Saltburn. He is set to play the monster in Guillermo del Toro’s reimagining of Frankenstein’s Monster and star in Paul Schrader’s Oh, Canada.

Hunter Schafer
Schafer made her acting debut in Euphoria and quickly became one of Hollywood’s in-demand young stars. She has upcoming films set to release later this year and is set to star in the film Mother Mary alongside Anne Hathaway and Michaela Coel.

Barbie Ferreira
Ferreira announced in August 2022 that she would not be returning for Euphoria season 3. Since her departure, she has appeared in Jordan Peele’s Nope and has two films slated for release later this year.

Nika King
King, who plays Rue’s mother, Leslie Bennett, has been outspoken about the show’s extended hiatus, joking about needing season 3 to pay her bills.

Angus Cloud
After making his breakthrough acting debut on Euphoria as Fezco, Cloud tragically died from an accidental overdose in July 2023. His death is likely to affect the upcoming season, with cast members still grappling with the loss.


Rumors have persisted that Euphoria season 3 won’t directly follow season 2’s chaotic finale and may feature a major timeline jump. Zendaya hinted in an interview that the characters may be exploring life after high school and what it means to be an individual with principles in a corrupt world.

HBO chief Casey Bloys said the network is aiming for a 2025 premiere for season 3.

In conclusion, Euphoria fans eagerly await the premiere of season 3, hoping to see their favorite characters back on screen once again. The cast’s busy schedules and the tragic loss of Angus Cloud have added complexity and emotion to the anticipation for the upcoming season. With rumors swirling and hints from cast members, the future of Euphoria remains both mysterious and exciting for fans around the world.
