The ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike impacted the future of countless upcoming TV shows, including some of HBO’s biggest hits. The network’s CEO Casey Bloys officially confirmed some of their hit series won’t return until 2025, including Euphoria and The White Lotus.

Bloys discussed the network’s future programming during Thursday’s presentation in New York City and revealed we’ll have to wait a little longer to see new seasons of their most popular shows. The next season of the Emmy-winning anthology series The White Lotus won’t see the light of day until 2025, and it’s not the only series to experience a major push.

Bloys also said we’ll have to wait until 2025 for the third season of Euphoria, which is certainly the biggest blow given its high school setting. The horror series Welcome to Derry, set in the world of Stephen King’s IT, will also take a little bit longer to finish and is now eying a 2025 release date.

It’s not all bad news, and Bloys confirmed House of the Dragon is returning next summer, in addition to sharing the first Season 2 teaser trailer with the press. He also said that the second season of The Last of Us will kick off production in early 2024, but it’s likely it won’t premiere until 2025.
