This announcement arrives amid rumours that Ferreira was not getting along with the show’s creator, Sam Levinson. Fans speculate that this may also explain her character’s reduced screen time in season two.  As far as a release date for season three goes, HBO has not announced one as of yet, nor have they revealed a full cast list.

However, it is believed that the majority of the former season’s cast members, including Sydney Sweeney and Jacob Elordi will be returning, with one definite confirmed return being Zendaya, who plays a lead character by the name of ‘Rue’ in Euphoria. As stated by HBO Programming’s executive VP, Francesca Orsi, “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 3.”
