Barbie Ferreira recently revealed in her Instagram stories that she is leaving Euphoria. Since then there are a lot of rumors circulating on the internet about Alexa Demie’s departure from the series. Demie plays “Maddy Perez” on HBO’s hit show. However, there is a possibility that Demie might be leaving Euphoria Season 3 as her character is leaving town. But, the creators of the show and Demie herself did not confirm anything yet.
Why did Barbie Ferreira leave Euphoria?
Barbie Ferreira who plays “Kat Hernandez” on the show dropped a bombshell on fans when she revealed the news of her departure from Euphoria. Ferreria was not happy with her character’s storyline in season 2. Kat had a strong storyline in season 1 and the audience was happy to see a character that was relatable, and confident. Fans loved the character’s bad-ass body-positive attitude and were excited to see more of cam-girl Kat’s journey. But, in season 2 Kat barely had lines and screen-time. Fans noticed that Kat’s character become shallow and one-dimensional. In episode 6 of season 2, Kat broke up with her boyfriend Ethan in a restaurant without any sane reasons as she had doubts about her relationship with him since season 1. Fans also took to Twitter to criticize Sam Levinson for poorly writing Kat’s storyline as nothing interesting happened to her character. Levinson previously denied all the accusations and said most of the things the Euphoria actress said were “untrue”. According to some sources, Ferreira also walked off set multiple times.
However, all this tension between Ferreira and Levinson eventually made the actress quit Euphoria. The Euphoria actress posted Instagram stories on August 24, with the message;
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 continued
“I hope many of you could see yourself in her as I did and that she brought you joy to see her journey into the character she is today. I put all my care and love into her and I hope you guys could feel it. Love you Katherine Hernandez.”
Ferreira has some other great projects lined up for her. The Euphoria actress will appear in HBO max’s film “Unpregnant” and will also appear in Jordan Peele’s film “Nope”.
Will Alexa Demie return for Euphoria Season 3?
Ever since the news about Barbie Ferreira’s departure hit the internet, rumors about Alexa Demie leaving the show also started to circulate on Twitter. A Twitter account tweeted the news with a link to an article. But, the article leads nowhere but to a page that thanks fans for voting for Doja Cat for the VMA’S. It was definitely a fake tweet created to trick fans into voting for the singer. The tweet said:
Alexa Demie has reportedly been dropped from season 3 of ‘Euphoria’ due to behind the scene issues.
