Get ready to be swept away once again by the intoxicating world of Euphoria! Here is everything we know so far about the current status of Euphoria Season 3.
The teen drama television series was renewed for a third season a year ago in February 2022, which isn’t surprising at all, considering the fact that it has received numerous accolades, including a nomination for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series. Moreover, the second season received mostly positive reviews, with critics praising the performances and visuals but criticizing the season’s pace and characterization.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the second season received a “Certified Fresh” score of 80%, with an average rating of 7.05/10 based on 110 reviews. Whereas, Metacritic assigned the season a score of 74 out of 100 based on 19 reviews, indicating “generally favorable reviews.”
With such great reviewers, there is no doubt in our minds as to why the viewers have been speculating about Euphoria’s Season 3 current filming status. Especially after, we have already entered the sixth month of 2023 which makes it a long time for the fans to go forward without any major updates. So, if you are wondering the same thing, then you’ve reached the right place to get all the answers, as we at the Web News Observer have got you covered!
Continue reading to find out when the filming of the much-anticipated third season is likely to begin.
Filming Status: Right now, we can assure the viewers that the filming of the third season won’t begin anytime soon. One of the main reasons for the delay is the ongoing 2023 Writers Guild of America strike, due to which scripts haven’t been able to be completed on time as they are a major part of the pre-production stage that has come to a halt as the writer’s strike is assumed to last for some months.
Moreover, in a recent Deadline interview with Francesca Ors also stated, “While everything at this moment is pencils down, I’m hopeful that we can come to terms sooner than later. Otherwise we will have to assess what is the end of the 24 schedule, what are the shows that are going to be delivered for 2025,” Orsi said. “At this point, those shows that I’m looking to air wouldn’t necessarily be ready if this strike last six to nine months. So yes, that’s a big question for us, but I think we’ll cross that road once we come to it.”
This update helps to lay out an idea of how the production might be aiming to begin sometime later this year or even early 2024.
Release Date: Considering the filming status of the 2023-24 television season there is no doubt that major networks will undergo shifts in their planned schedules. As a result, the third season is expected to premiere sometime around 2025! This makes one thing clear that the wait for the new season to make a comeback will be a long one compared to the prior seasons.
Francesca Ors also stated, “Euphoria is one of those that we had begun writing in tandem with post-production on Idol, but at this point, we don’t have countless scripts.” Further adding, “We can’t start shooting, so the delivery of that show — ideally in 2025 — will be determined on when we can pick back up with Sam, who at this point is all pencils down and just finishing posts on Idol.”
Production Timeline: If the crew wishes to finish the production on schedule, we speculate that the filming can last six months without any unnecessary hiatus, which will help in not delaying the premiere. Additionally, the editing and other crucial post-production factors will definitely need to be delivered on time if the show wants to premiere soon. So, there is a chance this time frame can be accurate, but only time will tell what the crew moves forward with.

Euphoria Season 3: What to expect from the new season?
After the third season’s renewal, Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President of HBO Programming, stated, “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. 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.”
The latest reports circulating all over social media indicate that there will be a major time jump in Euphoria Season 3 that could last up to five years. According to Zendaya, Season 3 could potentially “explore the characters out of high school”, suggesting the significance of the time jump. Moreover, in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, when asked, “What are you as a producer and an actor hoping to see in season three?”

She replied: “I think it’ll be exciting to explore the characters out of high school. I want to see what Rue looks like in her sobriety journey, and how chaotic that might look. But also with all the characters, in the sense where they’re trying to figure out what to do with their lives when high school is over and what kind of people they want to be. What was special about this season was that we got to dive into [the other characters] in a much deeper sense. I think we can do that again in the third season. There’s so much talent, you want to make sure everybody has the chance to have that.”
The cast members who are expected to return are Zendaya, Hunter Schafer, Nika King, Eric Dane, Colman Domingo, Angus Cloud, Jacob Elordi, Algee Smith, Sydney Sweeney, Alexa Demie, Maude Apatow, Javon Walton, Dominic Fike, Storm Reid, Austin Abrams, and more. Additionally, Barbie Ferreira (Kat Hernandez) announced her departure from the series ahead of its third season. It’s been also reported that Heidi Bivens, the costume designer, will not be returning for Season 3. Angelina Vitto, her assistant costume designer in Season 2, will take the reins.
