Euphoria is one of the most popular teen dramas of the decade. Joining the ranks of iconic teen shows such as Gossip GirlSkins and the O.C, the show has gained popularity for its portrayal of its teenage characters, their friendships, love lives and various other complications. 

When season two of the series aired at the beginning of 2022, it was safe to say that the shows many viewers were already wondering when the next season would be released. 

Luckily, Euphoria creators didn’t waste any time confirming that a third season was on its way, posting a clip to the show’s official Instagram account that read: ‘#EUPHORIA has been renewed for season 3.’ 

Shortly after, Francesca Orsi, Vice President of HBO programming released a statement that read, “Sam, Zendaya, and the entire cast and crew of Euphoria have taken season two to extraordinary heights, challenging narrative convention and form, while maintaining its heart.

“We couldn’t be more honoured to work with this gifted, wildly talented team or more excited to continue our journey with them into season three.”

While we know that a season three is definitely on its way, when that day is, is another story.

When Will Euphoria Season Three Be Released? 

Season three will likely only be released in 2025. 

This is likely due to the cast member’s other commitments, the writers and ongoing actors’ strikes, as well as the passing of cast member, Angus Cloud (Fez). 

While this means there will be a three and a half year gap between the end of season two and the beginning of season three, the show has dealt with large gaps of time before, when there was a break of two and a half years between the first two seasons. 

While plot details haven’t yet been released, Euphoria costume designer Heidi Biven previously teased that a five year time jump could be incorporated into the upcoming season. If this is the case, the three year break won’t be such a bad thing.

Who Is In The Cast Of Euphoria Season Three? 

Most of our favourite Euphoria cast members will be returning for the third season, including Sydney Sweeney, Zendaya and Storm Reid. 

Sadly, Angus Cloud’s passing means that we won’t see Fez in the upcoming season. 

Javon Walton, who plays Ashtray, and Barbie Ferreira, who plays Kat, also won’t be part of the upcoming season. Barbie announced the news on her Instagram story, where she wrote

“After four years of getting to embody the most special and enigmatic character Kat, I’m having to say a very teary-eyed goodbye,” she wrote.

“I hope many of you could see yourself in her like I did and that she brought you joy to see her journey into the character she is today. I put all my care and love into her and I hope you guys could feel it. Love you Katherine Hernandez.”

What Is The Plot Of Euphoria Season Three?

At this stage, we don’t know what the plot of season three will be. However, considering that the end of season two saw Maddy and Cassie have a major blow out, Rue get sober and Ashtray gunned down by police in a shoot out, we’re expecting big plot developments from the third season. 

All we do know so far is that Euphoria director, Sam Levinson sees the upcoming season as a “film noir,” where he will “explore what it means to be an individual with principles in a corrupt world,” through the eyes of Rue.
