Euphoria’s second season, which received high praise, has concluded, but the good news is that a third season has been formally ordered. Rue, a recovering young drug addict played by Zendaya, narrates the popular HBO series. We also follow the lives of Rue’s classmates at East Highland High during the course of the book, including Maddy, Cassie, Kat, Lexi, Elliot, Nate, and her best friend-turned-girlfriend, Jules. Season 3 will undoubtedly be even more dramatic if the drama of season 2 is any indication of how crazy their community is.
Find out everything Season 3 of Euphoria has in store, from previews to new characters, in the paragraphs that follow.
Is season 3 happening?
Yes! HBO has extended the fan favorite for a third season following the success of the season 2 run. On Friday, February 4, 2022, the information was announced on the show’s official Twitter account.

Sam Levinson, the show’s creator, will keep holding down the fort for the forthcoming season, according to a report in Deadline. 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, the Executive Vice President of HBO Programming, told the outlet. “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 come out (Release Date)?
As of the right moment, neither the state of production nor a release date is known. Season 2 came significantly later than expected since the COVID-19 outbreak caused a delay in production. The Emmy Award-winning lead actress of the program, Zendaya, is in high demand for a number of cinematic projects, including Dune: Part Two, so this may also be the case for season 3.
On Wednesday, April 20, at Euphoria’s For Your Consideration event, the actress seems to reveal that it might be some time before we see the show return. When speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Zendaya was questioned about if the rumor that season 3 won’t air until 2024 was accurate.
“I think that might be true. I honestly don’t know,” she responded. “There’s some executives that know better than me. You might wanna ask them. I’m gonna be busy for a while.”
This information suggests that season 3 of Euphoria won’t premiere for at least another year. HBO hasn’t announced an official release date, yet.
What will happen in season 3?
The program will probably pick up where it left off, assuming it’s anything like the first two seasons and the special bridge episodes. The future season will probably develop these themes or focus on characters that didn’t receive much screen time in season 2 because season 2 finished on an intense note for characters like Fez, Nate, and Cal (looking at you, Gia, Lexi, Faye, Ethan, and Kat).
In terms of Gia’s future, Storm Reid is optimistic that season 3 will present her with a chance to find healing. The teenager explained to E! News, “I think in season 1, it was a lot of Rue’s problems on the front line and her struggles being depicted.” She went on to explain that Gia became “fed up” with her big sister in the show’s second season.
“I hope that we get some reconciliation with a lot of things and I hope Gia gets to show her personality more and how she feels about things,” Before addressing how the job has impacted her mental health, Storm continued. “Once you call cut and say it’s a wrap for the day, I’m usually able to go home and be fine, but I spent a lot of time thinking about what we shot after the fact — I think it really bothered me.”
“That’s your true raw emotion of what’s going on in the scene and to see [Rue] kick down that door and scream at me and like us tussling, I was just like, ‘Oh my God, I don’t want to do this anymore,'” Storm described the filming of Rue’s intervention in season 2.
The first two seasons of the program left certain mysteries unsolved, so season 3 may possibly focus on what happened to Laurie after Rue escaped her home and how Nate’s family dynamics would evolve as a result of Cal’s arrest.
Who will return in the upcoming third season of Euphoria?
Between seasons one and two, Euphoria aired two specials. While these were born of COVID-related concerns, they were well-received, so more might be developed to focus on various characters in season three.
Season three will continue unraveling season two’s loose ends.
Nate will have to deal with putting his father in prison, Cassie and Maddy may reunite, and then there’s Jules. Clearly, she wants to make up with Rue, but considering the ending voiceover, it’s safe to presume they won’t.
Euphoria hasn’t openly addressed a significant enigma that could be a key storyline in season three. Nate’s secret third sibling has appeared in both seasons’ family portraits.
Fans have been debating about the youngest Jacobs brother since the first episode. While some hypotheses are more absurd than others – that ain’t Ashtray – the secret behind his absence could be exactly what this show feeds on.
Young Cal’s secret affection for Derek could cause waves if he returns in season three. Cal’s imprisonment in season 2’s finale makes that unlikely.
We suppose Cal may return to prison or courtroom scenes to investigate his demise.
Sydney Sweeney wants Cassie to get darker in season three.
“There was a bit of Cassie that I got to play with when she started saying that she’s crazier than Maddy in a scene with Nate. And she kind of got a little more evil and dark and serious, and not so frantic. I would love to play with more of that streak within herself,” she told Variety.
But could Ashtray return in season three? “With Ashtray, we’re not 100 percent if he’s dead, because you saw absolutely no blood, right?” Walton added.
