Euphoria Season Three: Trailer, Cast And Release Date

Just before the Season Two finale, rumours began to circulate that Euphoria Season Three was going to be axed due to the messy behind-the-scenes drama.

Thankfully, series creator Sam Levinson later indicated that we can expect another season and although he hasn’t dished too much dirt on what we can expect, from the little he has said, it sounds like it’s going to be a doozy.

Back in June, gossip overlord, Deuxmoi reported that the show might be facing cancellation following some messy behind-the-scenes drama among the cast. An anonymous source wrote into the goss Instagram account claiming that Levinson was in deep trouble for “breaking multiple protocols while working on Euphoria and his other controversial series, The Idol.

Very, very stoked to report that these claims have turned out to be wrong.

When is the Euphoria Season Three release date?

I know we’re all excited for Euphoria Season Three but I think it’s going to be a while before we can even anticipate when it’ll be on our screens.

First, it was delayed due to the strikes:

Euphoria is one of those that we had begun writing in tandem with post-production on Idol but at this point, we don’t have countless scripts,” Orsi told Deadline at the time.

“We can’t start shooting, so the delivery of that show — ideally in 2025 — will be determined on when we can pick back up with Sam, who at this point is all pencils down and just finishing posts on Idol.”

Now, it has been delayed for other unknown reasons.

Deadline has reported that filming plans have been put on hold for the time being and the cast have been encouraged to accept other acting jobs in the meantime.

“HBO and Sam Levinson remain committed to making an exceptional third season,” the network said in a statement to Deadline. “In the interim, we are allowing our in-demand cast to pursue other opportunities.”

Sources told the esteemed entertainment publication that there had been no set production start date for Season Three, although filming was set to kick off at some point over the next couple of months.

Strikes aside, filming the series actually takes a bloody long time.

Coleman Domingo, who plays Ali in the series, told Extra that each episode takes about a month to film.

“We shoot these episodes in like a month each. It takes a while. It takes so long because there are a lot of frames,” he explained.

“If you look at the show, there are a lot of tiny, tiny scenes. Sam is very meticulous in such a gorgeous way. It’s gonna be worth the wait.”

That checks out. I remember when Season One of Euphoria came out and I was floored by how well it was shot. I’m not a film bro by any means but it impressed little old me.

What is the plot of Euphoria Season Three?

Insiders told The Hollywood Reporter that Levinson’s plan is to do a time jump that will show us what the characters are up to several years in the future.

As for the storylines, that’s currently under wraps as Levinson tinkers away with the scripts.

An insider told the publication that Levinson is “a notoriously deliberative writer”. In an interview with GQ back in February, guest star Colman Domingo (Rustin) described Levinson as someone “who writes and rewrites and writes and rewrites again”.

He said the creator was “interested in the existential question of who we are right now. Our souls. That’s what he wants to figure out with Season Three.”

Speaking to Elle as part of a cover story on Zendaya, Levinson spoke about his vision for the upcoming season. But as you’d expect, this info was buried between gushing compliments for the incredible actor.

“She’s the most competitive person I know, in a good way. She’s constantly growing as an artist and always seeking a challenge. She’s never complacent,” he told the mag.

He went on to share that he sees Euphoria Season Three going in a different direction than the previous two.

Levinson plans to shoot it as a “film noir“, a style of cinematic filming that carries themes of pessimism and cynical attitudes. It’s famously been used for crime and often has stark lighting, frequent flashbacks, complicated plots, and existential themes.

Interestingly, he plans to use Zendaya’s character Rue to “explore what it means to be an individual with principles in a corrupt world.”

It may be incredibly vague and potentially wanky but I’m already sold.

In an interview with Extra in April 2022, Zendaya explained where she hoped she’d be able to see Rue go in Euphoria Season Three.

“I would like to explore Rue’s sobriety and that journey for her,” she said.

“We see her in the midst of it. It would be nice to see her closer to the other side.”

I couldn’t agree more TBH. We’ve seen the darkest side of Rue and her addiction. We’re all rooting for her, and it would be great to see her get a win, just once.

Who is in the Euphoria Season Three cast?

Euphoria Season Three will be seeing a few changes in its cast this year. So far, the only star 100 per cent confirmed to appear in the upcoming season is Zendaya reprising her role of Rue.

Barbie Ferreira, who played the beloved character Kat in Seasons One and Two, posted on IG in April to announce that she won’t be appearing in Euphoria Season Three.

“After four years of getting to embody the most special and enigmatic character Kat, I’m having to say a very teary-eyed goodbye,” she wrote alongside fan artwork created by co-star Hunter Schafer.

Additionally, Angus Cloud who played kind, drug-dealer Fezco tragically passed away in July this year. Before his death, he told E! News how excited he was to be filming the series again.

“I can’t wait to get back to work with everyone. I feel like it’s been way too long. I just can’t wait to see everyone and be working on set again,” he said in October last year.

Despite not knowing where his character would go in the upcoming season, he was keen to see what Levinson came up with.

“Knowing Sam, it will be good,” he said.

As far as the rest of the cast go, no news seems to be good news.

Fingers crossed we will see the main cast Jacob Elori, Alexa Demie, Sydney Sweeney, Maude Apatow, and Hunter Shafer reprise their roles in Euphoria Season Three.
