The news was confirmed by HBO exec Casey Bloys after responding to a question about how the WGA/SAG-AFTRA strike had affected the network's programming schedule. “‘White Lotus’ Season 3 probably would have been in play for 2024, it’s 2025,” he said during a press event in New York via Variety. “‘Welcome to Derry,’ we had had that scheduled for Halloween of 2024. That’s likely 2025.” A sizzle reel also revealed that the new seasons of The Last of Us and Euphoria will premiere in the same year.
The White Lotus was "in the early stages" of preparations for season three when the writers strikes began. Not much is known about the rest of the shows, with Euphoria described by creator Sam Levinson as "a film noir" and The Last of Us season two entering production early next year.
