Euphoria Season 3 Update: Casey Bloys, HBO’s Chief Content Officer, addresses if the third season of the hit adolescent drama Euphoria will be the final one.
HBO’s Chief Content Officer, Casey Bloys, has remarked on whether Season 3 of Euphoria will be the final season. The executive, who has overseen the creation of a number of hits shows for the network, including The White Lotus, The Flight Attendant, and I May Destroy You, has previously indicated that the drama had a short shelf life. Euphoria, a drama series about a group of disturbed high school students, has just been renewed for a third season.
Euphoria Season 3: An HBO Executive Discusses
Euphoria, an HBO and A24 co-production, has a large following among young people, with 13.1 million viewers tuning in for the Season 2 debut in January. Zendaya, who also serves as the narrator in Spider-Man: No Way Home, stars with Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Sydney Sweeney, Hunter Schafer, and Alexa Demie, all of whom have become household names, particularly among internet viewers.
Euphoria is the most popular show on Twitter, with more than double the number of followers as Netflix’s All of Us Are Dead. The show’s relatability is part of its appeal, which originates in part from the primary cast’s young age, with the bulk of them in their twenties.
Blogs mentioned this in his prior statements about the potential number of seasons for Euphoria, stating that he wants young people to portray young characters and that he doesn’t think the audience wants “30-year-olds playing teenagers.”
Bloys has now clarified whether or not Season 3 of Euphoria will be the final season. He told that HBO will adopt a hands-off approach, trusting the filmmakers and cast to take the characters where they want to go. He went on to say that they’ll let the creative staff “guide the way.”
Given the positive response to the show and the current levels of hype surrounding Zendaya, it would be foolish for HBO to publicly state that future seasons will be limited, especially since the actress’ net worth has recently skyrocketed thanks to appearances in both No Way Home and Denis Villeneuve’s mega-blockbuster Dune.
It’s no surprise, therefore, that Bloys lists her as one of the important factors in deciding whether or not to continue the third season, saying that “it’s hard to fathom doing the show without her,” but that it’s something she and the production team should address. Bloys, on the other hand, was quick to confirm that Zendaya will appear in the third season.
If Euphoria gets a third season, only time will tell. In the often-corporatized world of television, the hands-off approach is refreshing, but if the next season is as popular as this one, HBO’s penny pushers will be begging to keep the money train running. In the meantime, there are two more episodes of Euphoria season 2 to show.
