Euphoria Season 2 is on the way with more iconic makeup looks that viewers just can’t wait to re-create. The show was renewed for a second season one month after the first season premiered on HBO on June 16, 2019. Moreover, Zendaya was the first one to reveal that the viewers can look forward to a ‘beautiful’ plot in the second season of Euphoria in an Interview with InStyle magazine.
The euphoria which spread among the teenagers like a wildfire is going to begin its shooting in April this year which means fans can look forward to a premier date in late 2021 or early 2022.
What is Euphoria about?
Euphoria is an American remake of the Israeli miniseries of the same name written by Sam Levinson and executive produced by Drake among many others.
The series revolves around six teenagers and not just one which makes the show that much more interesting as they struggle between drugs, sex, identity, love, friendship, and trauma while also trying to make sense of their daily life.
The makers of the show have tried to tackle a lot of controversial issues at once which makes it more alluring for teenagers who are going through something similar. It’s beyond your typical, cringy, love stories and viewers are loving it because it’s pure Euphoria.
Zendaya plays the lead role, with Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith, Sydney Sweeney, and Colman Domingo rounding out the ensemble cast.
When is Euphoria Season 2 coming?
HBO originally planned 8 episodes for season one that aired on June 16, 2019, but seeing the fan’s reaction towards ‘delayed shooting news’ and hunger for Season 2, decided to make 2 special episodes. One focusing on Rue while the other focused on Jules (Zendaya and Hunter to the rescue!) The specials are called “Trouble Don’t Last Always” and “Fuck Anyone Who’s Not a Sea Blob” and premiered on December 6, 2020, and January 24, 2021, respectively.
As for season 2, an announcement was made in February 2021 that the shooting is going to start again in April so the viewers can expect the second season of Euphoria in late 2021 or early 2022, considering that the pandemic won’t cause any more trouble.
Who is going to be among the cast of Euphoria Season 2?
The original cast will be back and reprising their roles as Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer), Nate Jacobs (Jacob Elordi), Lexi Howard (Maude Apatow), Fezco (Angus Cloud), Kat Hernandez (Barbie Ferreira), Cassie Howard (Sydney Sweeney), Maddy Perez (Alexa Demie), Chris McKay (Algee Smith), Gia Bennett (Storm Reid), Ethan Lewis (Austin Abrams), and Cal Jacobs (Eric Dane).
Although there has been no news about the original cast being joined by new people, the 2 special episodes released in early 2021 did hint at the characters producers are looking to find in Season 2 of Euphoria.
Darian, Ray, Amy, Serena from the Israeli miniseries on which Euphoria is based will be added in the second season. Viewers are looking forward to knowing who might be taking up these roles and so are we!
