The creator of the show, Sam Levinson also shared his experience of being a drug addict at a young age with the audience at the premiere of Euphoria. Therefore, Euphoria is very close and personal to Sam Levinson. In July 2019, the series was renewed for a second season. Here is everything you need to know about Euphoria season 2.

But soon after on Mar 16, 2020, the same account tweeted that they are pausing the production due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s been quite a while since the cast and crew reunite on set. In September 2020, HBO president Casey Bloys told Deadline that they are planning to film Euphoria in early 2021.
Euphoria Season 2 Release Date
Season 1 premiered on HBO on June 16, 2019. The first season landed in the UK on August 6 on Sky Atlantic and NowTV. In July 2019, the series was renewed for a second season. Soon after, the rumors surfaced that the second season will air in 2020. The filming started in March 2020 and soon put on halt due to a pandemic. The filming will resume in early 2021.
There’s been no word from HBO on when we can expect Euphoria season 2 episodes in late 2021 or early 2022. Fans can breathe easy as the scripts have been locked and the team just needs to shoot before the show goes through post-production.
Special episodes before season 2 premiere
HBO is pretty much aware of the fans’ love for the show. That’s why it is releasing two standalone episodes to help bridge the gap between seasons. The specials episodes were announced back in October 2020. The first one “Part One: Rue” arrived on HBO Max Dec 3 followed by December 6 on HBO.

No update on the second season trailer yet. Meanwhile, you can watch the season 1 trailer right here:
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.
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.”
Euphoria Season 2 Star Cast
The star cast of the first season is most probably coming back. Here are some of the characters expected to return for season 2:
- Jacob Elordi as Nate Jacob
- Hunter Schafer as Jules Vaughn
- Sydney Sweeney as Cassie Howard
- Alexa Demie as Maddy Perez
- Zendaya as Rue Bennett
- Angus Cloud as Fenzco
- Eric Dane as Cal Jacobs
The official casting team was also looking for some new characters. So, expect a bunch of new characters to join the star cast.
What interesting about Euphoria is that it is produced by Drake, a globally popular Hip-Hip artist. Most of the people were pumped up to see Drake’s work as a producer and it turns out amazingly well.
If you still haven’t watched this exciting and informative TV show then you need to watch it right now. We recommend this show not only to teenagers but to adults as well to get a better understanding of youth’s mental problems and how they deal with it.
