Euphoria season 3 is on its way as the award-winning hit teen drama has been renewed.

The intense series has seen troubled teenager Rue Bennett (Zendaya) battling drug addiction and mental health issues, while juggling her chaotic life of love and loss. The show has also been following the tumultuous lives of other teenagers in East Highland, all suffering their fair share of problems in their private lives.

From addiction to abuse, the series has shone a light on a huge range of issues, but as we witness the messy lives of the teens unravel on-screen, viewers are looking forward to seeing the next chapter of their stories return and getting the answers they so desperately need.

Here’s everything we know about Euphoria season 3…

Euphoria season 3 release date

The Euphoria Instagram page made the official announcement that Euphoria had been renewed for season 3. However, there has been no news on when season 3 will be released. 

Season 1 aired in June 2019, followed by two special episodes in January 2021, then Euphoria season 2 finally arrived in January 2022, after being delayed by COVID restrictions.

While we hope to not wait as long for season 3, Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane (who plays Nate's father, Cal Jacobs) revealed to Variety, that we may have to wait until 2024 to see the upcoming season.

He said: "I just saw something that said 2024, which kind of makes sense. I mean, we'll go back and shoot maybe in November. I don't know. I haven't heard. It's always going to be changing."

If you can't wait for season 3, here's how to watch Euphoria season 2 online from anywhere in the world.

Euphoria season 3 cast

The Executive Vice President of HBO programming, Francesca Orsi, has made an official statement regarding season 3, saying: "Sam, Zendaya, and the entire cast and crew of Euphoria have taken season two to extraordinary heights, challenging narrative convention and form, while maintaining its heart. 

“We couldn't be more honoured to work with this gifted, wildly talented team or more excited to continue our journey with them into season three."

So, it looks like our Euphoria favorites will be returning for the new series, including Rue (Zendaya), Jules (Hunter Schafer), Maddy (Alexa Demie), Cassie (Sydney Sweeney), Nate (Jacob Elordi), Lexi (Maude Apatow), and more.

Also, with Dominic Fike (who plays Elliot) as a new addition to the cast in season 2, we wouldn’t be surprised if some new faces were welcomed to the show.

Sadly, it looks like Ashtray (Javon Walton) won't be appearing in the next season due to his shock death in the season 2 finale where he had a stand-off against armed police, and was killed during the chaos.

It was also announced that Barbie Ferreira won't be returning to Euphoria season 3 as Kat Hernandez after announcing her exit on her Instagram Story.

Euphoria season 3 plot

There’s currently no details of the storylines that will be featured in the new series, but, of course it will be focusing once again on the hectic lives of the youngsters, and answer many viewers' questions from season 2.

HBO's chief content officer Casey Bloys teased that he's "very excited" for the new season. He told TV Line: "I'm very excited about what they've got planned [for season three]. So I will leave that to them. We trust where they want to take these characters. So we'll let the creative team lead the way."

Season 3 will most likely see whether or not Rue stays clean from her addiction after she revealed in the finale that she had managed to stay clean for the rest of the school year but was unsure on how long she would stay that way. As well as to what happens with the Maddy/Cassie/Nate love triangle which has torn apart Maddy and Cassie’s friendship.

The season 2 finale also saw Nate call the cops on his father Cal (Eric Dane) for his crimes, so we'll maybe see how his future pans out in season 3 and how long he'll be in prison for.

Now, fans are desperate to know what was in Fez's letter to Lexi after the showdown happened at his home, leaving him unable to attend her play. Will Lexi find out what happened to Fez in season 3? Will she find out what's in the letter? Will Fez go to prison? There's so many questions! Hopefully, we'll get to see Lexi and Fez's romance develop more over season 3.

The new series could also possibly tell us the whereabouts of Young Cal’s (Elias Kacavas) secret love, Derek, who was featured in a flashback episode at the start of season 2, which told the story of Cal’s life at high school. 

Now an adult, Cal reminisced on their romance and it was clear that he missed his best friend, but it was never revealed as to what happened to Derek. It’s assumed that the pair lost touch, but could an adult Derek make a surprise debut in season 3 and cause shockwaves for the Jacobs family?

There’s also speculation surrounding Nate’s mystery younger brother, who has been seen in family photos. Many fans have theorized who it could be throughout the show, but could season 3 finally answer people’s theories?
