Colman Domingo teased about Euphoria Season 3, stating, “Sam Levinson and I had some really deep conversations as of last weekend actually,” Colman said. “Here 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.”

You know, working class parents and step-fathers and mothers, so I think I represent so many of them so it feels really really good.”
