Euphoria Season 3 Updates: Fans will definitely demand more episodes by the end of Euphoria’s second season. We don’t have a release date for Euphoria Season 3 yet. The show has yet to be renewed for a third season by HBO.
But don’t worry: HBO appears to be a fan of the teen drama. Euphoria was extended for Season 2 by the premium cable network in July 2019, just weeks after its premiere — and more than a year before Zendaya became the She is the youngest Emmy winner in the category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO’s senior vice president of programming Francesca Orsi said in a statement following the Season 2 renewal, “Euphoria creator Sam Levinson has crafted a wonderful world with an incredible ensemble led by the incredibly talented Zendaya.”
“We are overjoyed that he chose HBO to broadcast this ground-breaking series. We’re looking forward to following these complex characters on their journeys through the challenging culture in which they live.”
A third season will, ideally, arrive sooner than the second.
The second season of Euphoria premieres on HBO tonight at 9 p.m. ET, more than two years after Season 1 concluded. The pandemic is to blame for the delay: The cast and crew were just starting production on Season 2 in March 2020, according to Teen Vogue, when the COVID-19 issue shut down projects across Hollywood, including Euphoria.
HBO released two special episodes to help bridge the gap between Season 1 and Season 2: the Rue-centric “Trouble Don’t Last Always,” which was released in December 2020, and the Jules-centric “F—k Anyone Who Isn’t a Sea Blob,” which released the following month.
What will happen in Euphoria Season 3?
And there was a silver lining to the shutdown: creator Sam Levinson says the production pause allowed him to focus on the story rather than the hype.
“I think one of the few nice side effects of this f—the ked-up year is the space between Season 1 and Season 2,” Sam told GQ in December 2020 “It’s quite tough to shield yourself from the feedback and write from the same place of creative freedom because you know what people liked and didn’t like.” I really hope we can keep exploring, being interested, and experimenting in order for the show to grow in whatever way it does.”
In a July 2019 interview with TV Line, Casey Bloys, HBO’s chief content officer and HBO Max’s president, discussed the show’s longevity. “Well, [the protagonists] are in high school, so there are only so many seasons it can go,” he explained of the tense drama. “You have a certain amount of time.”
Casey, on the other hand, stated that he and Sam had not yet decided on an end date for Euphoria. “On that, we’ll follow [Sam’s] lead,” he says. “There is no predetermined course of action.” However, I don’t believe you want 30-year-olds to play [high school pupils].” (The casting agents for Saved by the Bell were not informed of this.)
