Euphoria became an instant hit when it premiered in 2019, offering a raw and unflinching look at teen life, exploring topics like drug use, sexuality, and trauma. Fans have eagerly awaited news about Season 3 since the dramatic Season 2 finale aired in February 2022. While an official release date has not been announced, here is everything we know so far about the return of this impactful HBO drama. 

The Season 2 finale left viewers on the edge of their seats, with many cliffhangers to be resolved. Rue Bennett's (Zendaya) future remains unclear after relapsing from her drug addiction. Meanwhile, the fallout from Cassie Howard's (Sydney Sweeney) actions threatens her relationships with Maddy (Alexa Demie) and Lexi (Maude Apatow). 

Creator Sam Levinson is known to draw inspiration for the show from his own life experiences, so fans can likely expect Season 3 to delve deeper into these complex character arcs.

Unresolved cliffhangers to be addressed

Zendaya is expected to reprise her Emmy-winning role as troubled teen Rue, though her character's fate was left hanging in the balance. Other returning cast members include Hunter Schafer as Jules Vaughn, Jacob Elordi as Nate Jacobs, Alexa Demie as Maddy Perez, Barbie Ferreira as Kat Hernandez, and Sydney Sweeney as Cassie Howard. New cast additions may also be announced to expand the world of East Highland.

While Season 3 was initially eyed for a 2023 premiere, HBO programming chief Casey Bloys indicated to Variety that production would likely be pushed into 2025. This delay can partly be attributed to star Zendaya's busy filming schedule for Dune: Part Two. It also allows creator Sam Levinson more time to refine the scripts. Fans will have to wait a bit longer for resolutions but can take comfort in the fact that the quality won't be compromised.

Likely 2025 release date

The Season 3 production faced some controversy after Sam Levinson was accused of unhealthy practices like unpaid labor and lack of consent by former crew members. This sparked discussions around working conditions in the TV industry. While no official statements were made, HBO and Levinson are likely taking steps to ensure a respectful environment moving forward. 

Fans looking for their Euphoria fix in the meantime can check out the series of interstitial bridge episodes released on HBO Max, including "F*ck Anyone Who's Not a Sea Blob" focusing on Jules. These one-off specials give glimpses into the characters' lives between seasons and help tide over anticipation.
