Barbie Ferreira Exits the HBO Series
Euphoria fans should not expect to see Barbie Ferreira in season three of the HBO series, as the actress confirmed her exit Aug. 24.
"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 on an Instagram Story.
"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," she added.
Before signing off, Ferreira noted that she put all her "care and love into her," and that she hoped fans "could feel it."
Ferreira first made her debut as Kat, a plus size high school student seeking to feel empowered by her body in the technology era, in season one of Euphoria in 2019.
While her journey of self love was a highlight of the first season, Kat's character arc in season two—which included a lie about a terminal illness so she could break up with too nice boyfriend Ethan.
There was even an unsubstantiated DeuxMoi tip that Ferreira & Euphoria creator Sam Levinson disagreed over Kat's season 2 storyline. But a source close to production denied the rumors in Feb.
