Euphoria is one of the most popular teen dramas to air in recent years, but its third season is still nowhere in sight. Many fans are wondering if Rue and the rest of the gang will even return for another adventure, and we’re here to help you navigate the show’s murky future.

Prolonged Writing Process

HBO recently announced they’re temporarily putting the show’s third season on hold, but added they remain committed to making an exceptional third season. The creator Sam Levinson is one of the culprits behind the delay, with several publications reporting that the scripts for Season 3 aren’t finished yet.

Cast’s Busy Schedules

Since Euphoria first premiered in 2019, some of its stars became one of the most sought-after young actors in Hollywood. Zendaya, Jacob Elordi, Hunter Schafer, and Sydney Sweeney all have several high-profile projects on the way, so it’s not a shocker to see HBO announcing they’re allowing them to pursue other opportunities in the interim.

No Production Date in Sight

Euphoria cast shared several hints about potential filming plans for Season 3 in recent months, but they’ve all fallen apart. There’s no firm production start date for the next season, but it will most likely start within the next couple of months.

Still Eying 2025 Release Date?

Despite another production delay, HBO is still hoping they’ll be able to bring Euphoria back in 2025. This is quite a long break given the high-school ages of the characters, but it’s worth noting that the wait between the first two seasons was just as long due to the pandemic.
