Sydney Sweeney's lips are sealed.

During the Sydney Sweeney in Conversation with Josh Horowitz event at The 92nd Street Y in New York City earlier this week, the actress, 26, briefly chatted with MTV’s Josh Horowitz about the upcoming third season of Euphoria — though she revealed that she couldn't say much about it.

"Honestly, it’s, like, as scary as talking about Marvel," Sweeney joked, comparing it to the super secret comic book and film franchise. "I said one thing, and it went everywhere."

When Horowitz told the star that fans are "excited" for the forthcoming season, Sweeney — who portrays character Cassie Howard in the popular HBO series — responded, "I’m excited too."

"I love Cassie. Cassie truly is a dream to play and as an actor, I’m so fortunate that I’ve had a character like her at such a young age," she continued. "And, of course, I wanna keep living her crazy [life]. I love it."

Euphoria was renewed for a third season in February 2022, but new episodes won't be released until at least 2025.

During a different conversation with Horowitz at SXSW earlier in March, Sweeney spoke about her nonstop slate over the past few months, revealing that she is soon heading back to set to shoot Euphoria after working on projects including Anyone But YouMadame Webb, Saturday Night Live and Immaculate, her new horror film.

“I always feel like I go home,” she said of returning to the show, which also stars ZendayaAlexa DemieJacob ElordiHunter Schafer and Maude Apatow. “It’s like home when I go back to it. I like it.”

As for whether or not she’s seen a script for the latest season, Sweeney played coy, stating, “Maybe. I don’t know."

While speaking with Horowitz earlier this week, Sweeney also spoke about having "agency" over her Euphoria character.

After she was asked if there is a "collaborative nature" on the set of the show, or if she just goes with what creator and writer Sam Levinson envisions, Sweeney said, "It's a bit of both."

"I think that we've all lived with our characters for so long, so we have a bit more of an agency behind [them]," she continued. "We feel like maybe she'll say this, but it is truly just a collaboration the entire way."

As for what makes the Euphoria set different from others she has worked on, Sweeney said, "There's a lot of reasons that it's special. I mean, we're doing and playing characters that have meant so much to people, and it's the longest production that I've ever been on, because each season takes eight to 10 months to film."

"So I'm getting to be with this group of people for a longer amount of time than I'm used to, and actually build relationships and have almost a family in a way," she added. "Like Maude and I are best friends. She feels like my actual sister, and I'm so thankful to be able to have something like that in this industry."
