At the LA premiere for Zendaya's new movie Challengers, Variety asked her if Euphoria season 3 is still happening. Zendaya then responded: "I don't know! I am not in charge." She continued: "Of course, if it's right for the characters and everything turns out the way it should, of course. But it's beyond me."

Given the uncertainty of her response, fans are now concerned that Euphoria might not be coming back at all. One person tweeted: "'it’s above me'…she’s one of the producers. This show is OVER."

Another wrote: "Yeah it’s a wrap everyone".

Hunter Schafer has also addressed the delays recently. Speaking to Variety at the GQ Global Creativity Awards (Apr 11), she said: "I just really miss everybody. Everyone is doing very well in their careers right now. Everyone’s kind of blown up...with that comes people traveling a lot. Whatever happens, I’m just excited to get back together once it’s time."

According to TheWrap, season 3 has been delayed due to script issues because there will be a time jump and HBO want Sam Levinson to have time to properly "break the story."

What do you think? Is Euphoria coming back?
