Though fans are over the moon about the renewal, some are not too pleased with the news – expressing their dissatisfaction towards the series’ creator, writer, and director Sam Levinson about where the show’s plot is heading this season.
As much as fans want Euphoria season 3, they also ask for Sam Levinson to work with other writers to deter the plot from dragging on.
