Euphoria season 3 release date speculation, cast, plot, and more news

Look ahead to the Euphoria season 3 release date and find everything you need to know about Zendaya's TV series including the plot, cast list, and more news.

Euphoria season 3 release date: Zendaya as Rue Bennett in Euphoria

When is the Euphoria season 3 release date? The second season of Euphoria ended early in 2022, and we are dying for more. The crazy world of Euphoria High has us well and truly hooked, as Zendaya leads a cast of dysfunctional, destructive teens through the trials and tribulations of adolescence in this top-tier show.

From Rue’s ongoing battle with drug addiction, Jules’ tumultuous gender transitioning journey, Fez and Ashtray’s run-in with the law, and the incredible love triangle between Nate, Maddy, and Cassie, Euphoria has treated us to a relentless, tension-filled ride over the last two seasons, and that’s why we think it’s one of the best TV series of the modern era. And that is not even taking into account Lexi’s jaw-dropping play!

There’s sure to be a hell of a lot more drama on the horizon for our favorite teen delinquents, but what about the Euphoria season 3 release date? Who will be dating who when we catch up with the gang again? Which Euphoria characters are coming back for more, and who looks set to be a high school dropout? These kids might not go to class, but we’ve been studying hard and we have all the answers you need.

Euphoria season 3 release date speculation

 We think the show will premiere in the summer of 2024, but Euphoria season 3 doesn’t have a release date yet.

While Euphoria season 3 has officially got the green light, production on the third season of the drama series was supposed to kick off in February 2023 but has now been delayed to some time in Fall.

We were hoping Sam Levinson would treat us to a couple more special episodes in the meantime, but that’s not the plan this time around. If you can’t get enough of Euphoria, there is a German remake on the way, so that’s something to look forward to, at least.

Euphoria season 3 cast speculation

Zendaya will return as Rue Bennett in the Euphoria season 3 cast. Barbie Ferreira, who plays Kat Hernandez, will not be returning for the next season.


The likes of Cassie Howard (Sydney Sweeney), Lexi Howard (Maude Apatow), Maddy Perez (Alexa Demie), and Nate Jacobs (Jacob Elordi) have plenty of unfinished business, so while nothing has been confirmed, we are almost certain they will be back for season 3.

Jules, played by Hunter Schafer, was sidelined somewhat in season 2, as Rue struggled to balance their relationship and her attempts to get clean. The finale of season 2 saw Rue seemingly end the relationship once and for all, albeit amicably, but could that be the end of Jules’ involvement in the tangle of Euphoria High? We suspect she will be back, but how big of a part she plays, remains to be seen.

Euphoria season 3 cast list:

  • Zendaya as Rue Bennett
  • Hunter Schafer as Jules Vaughn
  • Sydney Sweeney as Cassie Howard
  • Maude Apatow as Lexi Howard
  • Jacob Elordi as Nate Jacobs
  • Alexa Demie as Maddy Perez
  • Angus Cloud as Fezco
  • Dominic Fike as Elliot
  • Chloe Cherry as Faye

What will Euphoria season 3 be about?

We haven’t had any definitive answers regarding the Euphoria season 3 plot, but we anticipate a significant time jump will take place.

We may even have seen the end of the high school setting for the characters of the comedy series. They are certainly old enough to have left school behind and be pursuing different things, be it work or college, which could be a fascinating new angle for the show.

There are plenty of big questions that need to be answered in season 3, like what the hell happened to Fez? The last time we saw the lovable drug dealer, he was lying in his hallway, shielding himself from the crossfire of the conflict between the SWAT team and Ashtray. While Ashtray is all but confirmed to be dead after his reckless rampage, Fez is most likely heading for prison after taking the blame for Ashtray killing Custer.

Speaking of prison, we know for sure that Cal Jacobs is set for some jail time after his son Nate handed him to the police for his years of sexual deviance. But what is Nate planning? Has the bad boy of Euphoria High turned over something of a new leaf, or are his ambitions for revenge further reaching than just his father?

Let’s not forget the star of the show, Zendaya, and her character Rue Bennett. By the end of season 2, Rue is seemingly clean and in a good place. She has said sorry to those she hurt during the darkest depths of her battle with addiction, and she and Jules may be over, but they appear to have now ended on relatively good terms. However, the fact Rue lost $10,000 worth of pills that belonged to the creepy drug lord Laurie will surely come back to bite her in season 3.

And, finally, as if that wasn’t enough drama, we saw the tension between Cassie and Maddy reach boiling point in the season 2 finale. After Cassie essentially stole Maddy’s boyfriend, Nate Jacobs, the pair had a physical altercation during Lexi’s play, leaving both of them nursing wounds. Nate may have broken up with Cassie, but as Maddy warns her, “Don’t worry, this is just the beginning,” suggesting Cassie has plenty more pain heading her way.

How many episodes will there be in Euphoria season 3?

We are pretty sure Euphoria season 3 will comprise of eight episodes. That’s how many episodes the first two seasons had, so there’s no reason it would change now.

Will Euphoria get a season 4?

There is no word on a season 4 being confirmed, and we have a feeling Euphoria will end with season 3. While we certainly don’t want the show to end any time soon, we have to consider the fact that these characters, and the actors playing them, are getting older.

There’s also the fact that actors are dropping out of the project. All these factors suggest to us that Euphoria season 3 will be the end of the road.

That’s everything we know about Euphoria season 3 for now. But don’t worry, we’re listening out for all the gossip from Euphoria High and will keep you up to date as soon as anything changes.
