The hit HBO show Euphoria is losing a major cast member after two seasons of the show. Barbie Ferreira, who plays Kat Hernandez, is departing the critically-acclaimed series. In an Instagram story Ferreira let the world know that she will not be returning as Kat for Season 3:
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 iIdid 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.Barbie Ferreira
While disappointing, the news is not too much of a shock for some fans. How Euphoria handled Kat’s storyline and character was often scrutinized during its second season. Ferreira has also been taking on other major projects, such as HBO Max’s Unpregnant and Jordan Peele’s latest film, NOPE.
