Has your heart rate lowered yet after watching Euphoria’s Season Two finale? At all? Didn’t think so. When we left Euphoria Season One, there was no doubt that the focus was on Rue and Rue alone. This time, in Season Two’s final episode? Nearly every character’s arc crashes to some kind of end, as jarring as a Euphoria needle drop when you least expect it. Including, but not limited to: Nate throwing his pops in jail, Cassie becoming the greatest performance artist East Highland High School has ever seen, and the showdown at the Fezco-Ashtray apartment that we’d like to never talk about again. We’ll get to the rest shortly.
Here’s everything we know so far about Euphoria Season Three.
When Will Euphoria Return?
In early February, Variety reported that HBO renewed Euphoria for a third season. Unfortunately, the news didn’t come with an ETA on its release date. That means that we could either be in for more bridge episodes—a la Rue and Ali’s hour-long diner conversation—or a third season sometime next year.
Either way, here’s what Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Programming, wrote in her announcement of Euphoria’s season renewal: “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.”
What’s in Store For Euphoria High in Season Three?
Let’s start with one of the finale’s best developments: Rue in recovery. During the course of the episode, we learn that Rue is not only maintaining her sobriety, but actually wondering what she should do with it. (Inspired by Lexi’s play, of course.) In that light, you can’t blame us for hoping that Season Three shows us the next phase of Rue’s recovery—which hopefully includes a full apology to Jules.
What about the rest of the Euphoria crew? A few days before Euphoria’s season finale, Elliot himself—or Dominic Fike, as he’s known in real life—appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. When Fallon asked Fike whether or not Elliot would return to Euphoria next season, he said that he’d “absolutely” be back. So we can safely rule out Elliot transferring out of Euphoria High after Season Two’s dramatics, especially because his apology song to Rue seemed genuine. We hope that Rue and Elliot find some way to work through the bad for each other thing and become friends again.
Now, we’ve only put this bit last because we can’t stand to revisit the pain: Fezco and Ashtray. All of it. In the finale, we see the feds show the Fez-Ash bunker their full force, prompting the little guy to launch into a full firefight in defense of his brother. In the end, the cops take Fez away, certainly heading toward a prison sentence. As for sweet Ashtray, who likely didn’t live through the finale? When we interviewed Javon Walton, who plays Ashtray in Euphoria, he had hopes for both Ashtray surviving the fight (of course) and Fez breaking out of jail—leading to the brothers finding each other in Season Three.
“With Fez in jail, I feel like he’s going to get out no matter what,” Walton told us. “I don’t know how, but I feel like he’s definitely going to be able to get out somehow. And Ash is definitely going to find a way back to him because that’s the person he cares about most to him. That’s what I would want to happen, is for Ash and Fez to reunite. People love the Ash and Fez duo. The Fesh train!”
Sam Levinson, if you’re reading this—do you really want to let Javon Walton down? We need Ashtray and Fez to reunite, with a song like Bill Withers’s “Lean on Me” humming in the background. Just a humble suggestion.
