There’s more Euphoria in Jacob Elordi’s future…
HBO has ordered a third season of Euphoria, the Emmy-winning drama series starring Zendaya and the 24-year-old Spanish Australian actor from creator Sam Levinson.
Euphoria’s renewal comes as its sophomore season continues to deliver ratings records for HBO and HBO Max. The Season 2 premiere currently boasts 14 million total viewers across all HBO platforms.
In Season 2, Zendaya returns as Rue, who’s relapsed since Jules (Hunter Schafer) left her for the city. With school back in session, Rue faces new obstacles to her sobriety and her relationship with Jules. Tensions also rise between Nate (Elordi), Maddy (Alexa Demie) and Cassie (Sydney Sweeney), while Lexi (Maude Apatow) takes on a creative venture.
Written, directed and executive produced by Levinson, Euphoria has been a hit critically and culturally.
Beyond trending on Twitter with nearly each episode, Euphoria took home three prizes at the 2020 Primetime Emmys, including Zendaya’s history-making Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series win.
At the 2021 Primetime Awards, Euphoria received three nominations.
“Sam, 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. We couldn’t be more honored to work with this gifted, wildly talented team or more excited to continue our journey with them into Season 3,” said Francesca Orsi, EVP of HBO Programming.
Euphoria also features Nika King, Eric Dane, Angus Cloud, Algee Smith, Barbie Ferreira, Javon Walton, Dominic Fike, Storm Reid and Austin Abrams. Season 2 wraps on February 27.
The series, produced in partnership with A24, is based on the Israeli series of the same name that was created by Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin, from HOT.
