Barbie Ferreira Announces Her Exit from HBO's 'Euphoria' : 'A Very Teary Eyed Goodbye'
Barbie Ferreira say she will not be returning to “Euphoria” for its third season.
The actor announced her apparent departure via Instagram, writing in a story post: “After four years of getting to embody the most special and enigmatic character Kat, I’m having to say a very teary-eyed goodbye. 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. I put all my care and love into her and I hope you guys could feel it. Love you Katherine Hernandez.”
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight in April, the star spoke about why her character wasn't featured as much in the show's second season.
"There's a huge cast," Ferreira told the outlet at the time. "So, we'll see everyone. Everyone gets their time."
As season 2 aired, rumors of tension between Ferreira and the show's director, Sam Levinson, spread. Some viewers assumed the director may have purposely cut Ferreira's screen time. But she appeared to shut down those claims in a few words.Earlier this year, Euphoria was renewed for a third season following a record-breaking premiere and ongoing rating success for the Zendaya-led show's sophomore season.
