Euphoria Season 2 has been formally confirmed. Following Zendaya’s historic triumph at the 72nd Annual Emmys—the 24-year-old actress took home the award for Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her depiction of juvenile junkie Rue Bennett—HBO revealed that the parts are finally coming into effect for the eagerly-awaited Season 2.
The HBO series, an American adaption of an Israeli show, portrays a bunch of high school kids as they negotiate the ups and downs of adolescence. Its examination of romance, fury, personality, narcotics, sex, and anything else in between drew widespread acclaim from reviewers and audiences alike, with season premiere being viewed by 5.5 million-plus people throughout HBO’s channels.

Euphoria Season 2: Release Date
COVID-19 placed a significant stumbling block in the show’s plans to release Season 2 barely a year since the first season’s buzzy ending in August 2019, but things have been going back on schedule. Here’s all we know regarding Season 2 of Euphoria. HBO is “eying a debut in late in 2021 or maybe early 2022,” as per a Variety article in August 2021.
Euphoria Season 2: Cast
Despite the fact that Fezco (Angus Cloud) and Rue’s season one arcs ended on suspense, it’s reasonable to presume they’ll both be returning to the program. Rue did not die in the end, according to writer Sam Levinson.
While season 1 concluded with Jules taking a train out of town, Hunter Schafer has spoken to EW about her expectations for her character’s second season narrative, apparently suggesting she’ll also be continuing her role.
Euphoria Season 2 will feature the comeback of the remainder of the groundbreaking entire cast. Variety reported a slew of new actors entering the show in August 2021. Minka Kelly, is the only TV veteran amongst them, while the other two are new—but, in true Euphoria manner, they have extremely intriguing names. Demetrius ‘Lil Meech’ Flenory, and Dominic Fike.
Euphoria Season 2: Trailer
There is no complete trailer yet, but HBO has been releasing little, tantalizing glimpses of the upcoming season from over the previous couple of months. On the second anniversary of the debut of Euphoria, Zendaya shared the first look of season 2 in July 2021: Rue and Jules finding one other across the packed hallways of their hs; a grin then spreads across Rue’s face.
And, at the 2021 Emmys, HBO aired a teaser for almost all of its forthcoming programs, including 2 additional, extremely brief sequences from Season 2 of Euphoria. Rue is shown dancing along a corridor in one scenario, while Jules, costumed as Frida Kahlo, has a drawing of Rue painted on her temple in some other. Following the release of the clip, Jeremy O. Harris, a Euphoria Season 2 co-producer, shared a tweet that the Frida Kahlo sequence is his “favorite scene in season 2.”
