Euphoria Season 3 received a new release window and some would say that it's disappointing.
After HBO renewed Euphoria for a third season in February 2022, there have been minimal updates about the show's return to the network.
In February 2023, Euphoria star Maude Apatow previously said that filming for Season 3 won't start until the latter half of this year, indicating that the series premiere will not happen anytime soon.
When Will Euphoria Season 3 Release?
Variety shared that Euphoria Season 3 has been delayed to 2025 mainly due to the ongoing writers' strike by the Writers Guild of America (WGA).
This latest update could hint that production for Season 3 might've been delayed due to the strike. If so, then the filming start for Euphoria could be set sometime in 2024 instead.
Given that Euphoria Season 2 was filmed for seven months (April - November 2021), a production start in 2024 could have the same length, proving why a 2025 release window is ideal.
Why a Long Wait for Euphoria Season 3 Benefits the Series
Euphoria's popularity has skyrocketed after its stellar two seasons on HBO. In fact, the Zendaya-led series became HBO's second-most-watched show since 2004 after averaging 16.3 million viewers in Season 2.
That said, a longer wait for Season 3 could be worth it, considering the show's popularity and massive star power from its cast.
Meanwhile, exact plot details for Season 3 are still shrouded in secrecy, but Euphoria costume designer Heidi Biven did tease that a five-year time jump could be incorporated into the show's upcoming storyline.
If the time jump does happen, then the three-year gap from Season 2 would be ideal.
The first two seasons of Euphoria are streaming on Max.
