In the first two seasons of HBO’s Euphoria, Kat was played by Barbie Ferreira, who has announced that she will not return for Season 3.
Today, Ferreira confirmed her anticipated departure in an Instagram story.
“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.”
Ferreira told Insider in a March interview that the reports that there was conflict between him and the show’s creator Sam Levinson during the second season were untrue.
In Season 1, Ferreira made her acting debut as Kat, Maddie’s (Alexa Demie) and Cassie’s (Sydney Sweeney) best friend. The season followed Kat’s path toward self-love as a body-conscious teen who began the school year hoping to improve her reputation. Her character’s storyline in Season 2 involved lying about having a terminal illness.
The Emmy-winning show’s third season was ordered in February.
