Euphoria Season 2: What We Know So FarOctober 21, 2020
Fans of Euphoria, rejoice: The breakout HBO series surrounding TV’s edgiest cast of high schoolers is slated to return. The show, which stars Zendaya and became the seventh most-Googled show of 2019, earned a die-hard fan base and gave rise to budding stars like Hunter Schafer, Barbie Ferreira, Jacob Elordi, and Alexa Demie when it premiered last summer.
HBO renewed Euphoria just one month after it launched the series. Show creator Sam Levinson “has built an incredible world with an extraordinary cast led by the supremely talented Zendaya,” the network’s EVP of programming, Francesca Orsi, said at the time. “We are so grateful that he chose HBO as the home for this groundbreaking series. We look forward to following these complex characters as their journeys continue through the challenging world they inhabit.”
Although the details of the sophomore season remain slim, the hype surrounding it certainly is not. The show was even nominated for six Emmys (and already won the award for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics).
Here’s what we know about Euphoria‘s next chapter so far.
Two special episodes are coming soon.
We won’t have to wait that long for new episodes of Euphoria. Zendaya announced that two special installments of the series are incoming, with the first arriving Sunday, December 6. The Emmy winner announced the news with what looks like a shot from one of the upcoming episodes, featuring the eye of Jules (Hunter Schafer) and the reflection of Rue (Zendaya) in it.
“In the aftermath of being left by Jules at the train station and relapsing, the first special episode follows Rue as she celebrates Christmas,” HBO announced. The episode, titled “Trouble Don’t Last Always,” also stars Colman Domingo (Ali).
Zendaya previously teased the idea of doing bridge episodes while speaking to InStyle. “There is an idea to do a couple of bridge episodes that can be shot safely but aren’t necessarily part of Season 2,” the actress said. “So, hopefully, we will be able to do those in the coming months. I can’t wait.”
She added in a later Jimmy Kimmel Live! interview, “We might end up doing a little bridge episode. … An episode that we can do with a limited amount of people in a safer environment that can give people something—because we also miss Euphoria as the people who create it, too—and give everyone who loves the show a little something so we have something to live on until we are able to go into Season 2.”
Season 2 was expected to premiere in 2020.
At the end of 2019, HBO shared a teaser that previewed its 2020 releases. Euphoria‘s new season was included in the sizzle, which is now deleted, but the network didn’t share an exact premiere date at the time. Historically, Season 1 debuted on June 16, so fans were understandably ready for Season 2 to arrive this summer. However, June has come and gone with no new episodes. With the coronavirus putting production for Euphoria (and the rest of Hollywood) on pause, it’s unclear when the next installment will actually arrive.
