To kick off a humdrum hump-day we are coming to you with some good news, and some bad news. Which to tell you first, you might be wondering? Well, we may as well rip off the bandaid and say this: Euphoria season three is not likely to be released until 2024. Why, I hear you cry? Here’s the good news: because Zendaya will be so busy filming not one but two blockbusters for her fans — evidently leaving Rue’s down-trodden converses on the back-burner temporarily.
This week, it was announced that Zendaya will star in Luca Guadagnino’s upcoming MGM movie Challengers. Though her casting role remains a mystery for now, the premise of the plotline has been outlined: The film will follow the story of Tashi, a tennis player-turned-coach who takes it upon herself to transform her husband Art from a novice tennis player into a world champion. Set to begin filming in spring, Zendaya will be well and truly occupied until summer — when she will begin shooting the highly anticipated sequel to the Timothée Chalamet dystopia: Dune: Part Two. Sticking Chani’s dust-induced blue contacts back in, Zendaya will be working with a lot more airtime as the picture follows Paul’s pursuit to lead the future of humanity.
All of this does mean, of course, that Zendaya’s busy schedule puts a halt on filming the lives of Euphoria High students. And as the penultimate episode of season two sneaks up on us this coming Sunday, it’s hard to believe it will be a potential two-year wait for some remedy to an inevitable cliff-hanger. Talking of season threes renewal, HBO Programmings Executive Vice President Francesca Orsi says, “We couldn’t be more honoured to work with this gifted, wildly talented team or more excited to continue our journey with them into season three.” So if HBO are not concerned, neither should we be — after all, good things can only come to those who wait.
