No longer will fans finish an episode of Euphoria and go “Wait … was Kat in that one?” Posting on Instagram Stories, Barbie Ferreira said that she was saying good-bye to Euphoria and Kat Hernandez. “After four years of getting to embody the most special and enigmatic character kat, I’m having to say a very teary eyed goodbye,” she wrote. “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.” Kat became a fan favorite in season one of Euphoria, only to take a backseat in season two. Rumors of bad blood between Ferreira and showrunner Sam Levinson abounded — rumors that Ferreira denied. Ferreira reportedly walked off set on at least two occasions over the direction her character was taking. Ferreira was MIA at the season-two red carpet, further stoking the conjecture.
Euphoria has been renewed for a season three, but few details are known beyond that. Dominic Fike says that Elliot will definitely be back, however. So, um, look out for more guitar songs?
