Storm Reid on ‘Euphoria’ Season 3 Delay: ‘I’m Disappointed, but Not Surprised’ SuperNayr

Few current Hollywood TV projects have endured as much public turmoil as the planned “Euphoria” Season 3. Sam Levinson’s HBO drama has struggled to coordinate the schedules and creative tastes of its increasingly famous ensemble cast — which includes the likes of Zendaya, Sydney Sweeney, and Jacob Elordi — since Season 2 ended in early 2022. The show’s famously difficult shoots only added to the pressure, but Levinson and company still planned to spend summer 2024 shooting a new season that was expected to take place five years after the events of Season 2.

Those plans came to a halt on Monday, March 25, when HBO officially announced that the new season had been delayed indefinitely. “HBO and Sam Levinson remain committed to making an exceptional third season,” a representative for HBO told IndieWire at the time. “In the interim, we are allowing our in-demand cast to pursue other opportunities.” 

Since then, “Euphoria” cast members have slowly begun to speak out about the news. The latest star to acknowledge the situation is Storm Reid, who plays Gia Bennett, the younger sister to Zendaya’s Rue. Speaking to Variety, she expressed hope that the series will eventually return while admitting that the news wasn’t entirely surprising.

“I would hope the viewers, the audience, will be able to finish the show,” Reid said. “I think we should handle the show with care. We’ve put our hearts and souls into it.”

When asked if the news caught her off guard, Reid explained that the logistical complications surrounding Season 3 prepared her for the possibility that the shoot would be delayed.

“Yes and no,” she said. “We would all hope to be able to go back tomorrow, but there are logistics that have to be figured out. So even though I’m a little disappointed, I’m not surprised.”
