The second season of Euphoria has been a wild ride so far, and there’s much more where it came from. The edgy HBO drama series about a group of teenagers navigating love and friendship has officially been renewed for its third season.

Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Programming, confirmed the show’s renewal in an official statement and said they’re honored and excited to continue working with this gifted, wildly talented team. “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.

Euphoria originally premiered on HBO in 2019, and it offered a glimpse into the life of a group of teens as they grapple with issues of drugs, sex, and violence. The wait for the second season was prolonged in the face of the COVID-19 showdowns, but the show finally returned for its second season last month.

Euphoria is led by Zendaya, in the role of a teenage girl fresh out of rehab who’s still struggling with addiction. She won an Emmy and received nominations for several more awards for her performance in this series. The rest of the cast includes Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Hunter Schafer, and Sydney Sweeney.
