All the fans must have been waiting with bated breath for the release of the show’s Euphoria season 3. Read on to find out what all we know of the series as of now.
Euphoria is an American teen drama television series created and principally written by Sam Levinson for HBO and based on Israeli miniseries of the same name.
The show traces the story of a group of teenagers in the fictional town of East Highland, California, who seek hope while balancing the strains of love, loss, and addiction.
Consisting of eight episodes, Season 2 of the series had come to a bitter-sweet end in February 2022. Ever since the audience had been awaiting its next season more so after the renewal of Euphoria season 3 was confirmed by the makers. But the wait has been long enough with already a year gone by.

In an official statement, Vice President of HBO programming, Francesca Orsi, had said, “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 honored to work with this gifted, wildly talented team or more excited to continue our journey with them into season three.”
When will Euphoria season 3 release?
You must already know that it’s the Covid-19 pandemic that has delayed the release of Euphoria season two which we finally got to watch in February last year. Therefore we can expect that if things keep running smoothly this year, we could see the arrival of the show’s season three as early as 2023 itself.
Euphoria’s success can be gauged from the fact that according to HBO, Euphoria is the channel’s second-most-watched show since 2004, just behind the ever-popular Game of Thrones.
Moreover according to Variety, Euphoria, with 34 million tweets, is now the most-tweeted show of the decade (to date) in the US.
Who will be the cast members of Euphoria season 3?
Those who have followed the series from its inception will be happy to know that Zendaya is expected to continue her role as Rue Bennett in the third season of the series as well. Along with her Euphoria season 3 is also expected to star Hunter Schafer (Jules), Jacob Elordi (Nate), Alexa Demie (Maddy), Algee Smith (Chris), Sydney Sweeney (Cassie), Maude Apatow (Lexi) and Dominic Fike (Elliot).
Though, quite unfortunately, Barbie Ferreira who has been one of the popular cast members of the series, won’t be reprising her role for the next season. The actress announced her departure from the show in an emotional message which she shared via her Instagram Story.
What is expected from Euphoria season 3?
The audience will be excited to know whether Fez (Angus Cloud), who was arrested at the end of season two after being accidentally shot by Ashtray, will survive and make a comeback in season three. Fans of Euphoria must be remembering that Ashtray had unfortunately died at the end of season two after shooting at the police, as Fez attempted to take the blame for his crime.
Well, since we have waited for a year now, let’s hold on to our patience to know what will be unfolding in the upcoming season of Euphoria.
