Euphoria Season 3 Plot
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.”
According to Deadline, “Sam Levinson and I had some really deep conversations as of last weekend actually,” Colman said at the Emmys in September. “He’s talking about the arcs of all the characters and what he wants to do to expand that, to actually re-examine at times. It’s an organism and he wants it to keep shifting it in many ways and I think he’s going to take some really big swings actually with season 3.”
“He’s someone who, once there’s an expectation of the show, he wants to smash that expectation because he truly is a consummate artist and he wants to make sure he’s telling some really compelling storytelling. “And just because we had some successes before with this season, he said, ‘Let’s not rely on that. Let’s move forward. I’m going to go deeper with these characters. I’m going to really peel away the layers of them and just get to the human heart.'”
Euphoria Season 3 Cast and Crew
The series is produced in partnership with A24, and the show’s biggest stars are expected to return for the next season, which are 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. Levinson executive produces alongside Kevin Turen, Ravi Nandan, Drake, Adel “Future” Nur, Zendaya, Will Greenfield, Ashley Levinson, Ron Leshem, Daphna Levin, and Hadas Mozes Lichtenstein.
It’s uncertain whether we’ll see more of Cal Jacobs (Eric Dane) after his kid handed him into the police in the season 3 finale. Since his character was murdered in a police firefight in the final episode of season 2, Ashtray (Javon Walton) could only return through flashbacks or dream sequences. Moreover, Barbie Ferreira, who portrayed Kat in Seasons 1 and 2 of HBO’s Euphoria, has announced that she will not return for Season 3.
Moreover, Ferreira announced her probable departure in an Instagram Story, quoting, “After four years of getting to embody the most special and enigmatic character Kat, I’m having to say a very teary-eyed goodbye. 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.”
