Several “Euphoria” cast members will not be returning for season 3. Barbie Ferreira’s Kat, a body positive cam girl whose plot meandered in season 2, is no longer going to be a part of the story after Ferreira confirmed she won’t be back. In August 2022, after months of rumors surrounding her time on the show, the actor shared the news via Instagram stories, writing: “After four years of getting to embody the most special and enigmatic character, Kat, I’m having to say a very teary-eyed goodbye. I hope many of you could see yourself in her like I did and that she brought you joy to see her journey into the character she is today.”
Fezco, the sweet and soulful criminal who always had Rue’s back, will also not be back following actor Angus Cloud’s tragic death at age 25. Javon “Wanna” Walton, who played Fez’s younger adopted brother Ashtray, is also out of the cast after his character died in a shootout in the season 2 finale. It’s also unclear whether Fike, who admitted in a previous interview that he was an active drug addict during filming and was nearly fired, will want to return. “”I was so f**ked up during a lot of that show. It was really bad,” the actor told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe (via Teen Vogue), noting that Levinson tried to hire him a sobriety coach at the time.
The rest of the show’s stars, including Zendaya, Elordi, Sweeney, Apatow, Demie, and others still seem to be on board, but we’ll let you know when more casting news breaks.
