Sam Levinson may have gotten a lot of flak for The Idol, but it doesn’t seem that HBO is done with him yet. After all, he is behind one of Max’s biggest shows, Euphoria, and we just got an update on the third season.
Talking to The Wrap, HBO CEO Casey Bloys shares an update on where Euphoria 3, and where it is in terms of development. Bloys explains:
“We’ll see how it goes. He’s writing Season 3 right now, [Sam Levinson’s] in the thick of it. So I don’t know that he is laying out what the future looks like. It’s just getting Season 3 done… I haven’t had a specific conversation with him about is this the end or what does it look like.”
We don’t know where the third season is going to go exactly, as each character seems to just be having their own drama regardless of what the other characters are up to. We know that Rue (Zendaya) is struggling with sobriety, and we see her kind of make amends with Jules (Hunter Schafer).
On the other hand, Nate (Jacob Elordi) has his father taken in by the police, and we see more drama brewing with Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) and Maddy (Alexa Demie). Probably the biggest loss was that of Ashtray (Javon Walton) who dies in a shootout with the cops as they try to arrest Fezco (Angus Cloud); though fans would have loved to see where Fez would be in the next season, the loss of Cloud last year will definitely have to be addressed.
For now, it does seem that Levinson is currently at a low when it comes to his online reputation, but if Euphoria 3 manages to impress, I can imagine him staying on for even longer.
No release date has been set for the third season of Euphoria.
