Euphoria Season 2 Plot

The show is all about depicting the confused lives of high school teenagers struggling to keep up their lives involving drugs, sex, and more scandals. Fans are already making up interesting theories. But the official plot hasn’t been revealed yet.

Season 1 introduced us to Rue, an unsettled 17-year-old who tussles with drug addiction after an overdose. Then comes her new best friend, Jules, a transgender girl with whom Rue falls in love. Season 1 ended with a plethora of questions, those answers will be the plot points for the second season. These questions are:

  • Does Jules really love Rue?
  • Why Nate is roaming freely and not in jail already?
  • What’s will happen to Cassie after having an abortion?
  • What will happen to Fez following his robbery?
  • When will Maddy realize her worth and leave Nate alone for good?

In January 2020, Zendaya spoke about Euphoria season two during an interview at the Critics’ Choice Award: “I literally can’t wait. I just want to get back to it so bad. I miss it.”

“You won’t even be able to guess what’s coming… I couldn’t even guess it,” Sweeney said. She also said, “literally everything” about season two is “darker” as the characters will be “getting into more intense situations.”

Talking about the second season, Zendaya told the AP: “We’re just kind of experimenting with different tones and going more in-depth with all the characters. Mine, specifically, I mean—it’s brutal. This is gonna be a tough season. We’re, like, one-third of the way through, and I haven’t even gotten to the hard stuff yet…It’s gonna take a lot, but I think Rue deserves that care because I think she is a special character.”
