Austin Abrams Is Expected to Return For "Euphoria" Season 3 — Here's Who He'd Love to Do a Scene With
Ever since Barbie Ferreira announced she won't be reprising her role as Kat Hernandez in season three of "Euphoria," fans have been wondering what this means for Austin Abrams, who plays her ex-boyfriend Ethan Daley on the show. As of now, it looks like the 26-year-old is expecting to return for the third installment, though in what capacity remains unclear.
While speaking with The Nerds of Color in February, Abrams shared his hopes for the upcoming season. "Yeah, I got no idea. I don't know what is happening or going on," he said of season three. "I mean, I think [season two] for him has been a cool change and awakening. I feel like he's just becoming more of an adult now, just having more of a backbone and standing up for himself, which I think is super cool. But yeah, I got no idea. I mean, Sam [Levinson] always surprises me. So hopefully, there's something there, but he always just surprises me way more than something I could think of."
When asked if there's anyone in the cast he'd want to do more scenes with, Abrams said he'd love to do something with Jacob Elordi, who plays the widely hated Nate Jacobs. "I don't even know what that would look like but I would love to do a scene with him," he said. "I know, bad idea, but I wanna see . . . I don't even know what that interaction would look like. That'd be such a weird interaction, especially after doing the play. I don't know, I just wonder how he'd react to my character."
In addition to "Euphoria," Abrams has appeared in a handful of projects over the years, from "Dash & Lily" to "This Is Us" and, most recently, Netflix's high-school film "Do Revenge." Of his character on "Euphoria," Abrams said, "He's just so honest and a sweet person. I feel like everything really tries to come from a genuine, caring place and that's nice to keep exploring that honesty. It's nice to play a character like that, that really tries to uphold certain values that he has or that he's been taught by his parents." He also revealed that stepping into Ethan's shoes taught him the importance of being "more vulnerable, honest, and listening."
At the moment, there aren't very many details about what season three of "Euphoria" is going to look like, but we do know the show will return in 2024.
