Be still our beating hearts, Euphoria has been renewed for a third season, midway through the streaming of season 2. With ample social media buzz, a bingeworthy plot and a stacked ensemble cast, we’re not surprised to hear HBO has decided to re-sign the Emmy-winning series once again.
Executive vice president of HBO programming, Francesca Orsi, said in a statement the network are honoured to work with the team into the future on a third season of the series. “Sam [Levinson], Zendaya, and the entire cast and crew of Euphoria have taken Season 2 to extraordinary heights, challenging narrative convention and form, while maintaining its heart,” said 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.”

The first three episodes of season two have almost doubled in per-episode viewership, in comparison to its first season, with season 2 garnering more than 14 million total views across HBO streaming services to date. With season 1 having an audience of just more than six million, that’s an increase of almost 100 per cent in viewership.
Who will be starring in season 3 of Euphoria?
While there’s no details about major casting changes or additions, it’s safe to assume many of the current ensemble cast will return for the next season. The series, starring Zendaya, Hunter Schaffer, Alexa Demie and Sydney Sweeney, follows 17-year-old Rue (Zendaya) and her circle of friends as they navigate the tumults of teenage life in the town of East Highland. From the fashion to the intricacies of the storyline, the series is a technicolour feast for both eyes and mind.
When can I watch Euphoria in Australia?
