When is Euphoria season 2 being released?

Sharing the trailer on her Instagram account, Euphoria season 2 will make its return January 9th on HBO US.

The show's creator Sam Levinson revealed at the beginning of the year that the show was going to start filming in March. During an interview with IndieWire, Levinson said they will begin filming in March, “And the goal is to release episodes this year, so that’s hopefully [what will happen].”

Season one dropped in the US in June 2019 and in the UK in August and became an instant sensation with fans across the globe. It appears that Euphoria season 2 will be airing on Sky TV for UK viewers.

Who's in the cast of season 2?

As it stands, all of the original cast is set to make their return so expect to see Zendaya (who plays Rue Bennett), Sydney Sweeney (who plays Cassie Howard), Jacob Elordi (Nate Jacobs) and Hunter Schafer (Jules Vaughan) back on our screens again.

When announcing the second season, it was revealed by Francesca Orsi (EVO, HBO Programming) that: “Euphoria creator Sam Levinson has built an incredible world with an extraordinary cast led by the supremely talented Zendaya. We are so grateful that he chose HBO as the home for this groundbreaking series."

Orsi continued: “We look forward to following these complex characters as their journeys continue through the challenging world they inhabit.”

There's currently no word on any new characters or celeb guest appears joining the show as of yet.

What will happen in season two?

Any specific plot details for season 2 remain under wraps and tight lipped, however in an interview with IndieWire earlier this year, Schaffer spoke about her own expectations for the new season and her character Jules.

“[I hope] this growth and interrogation of Jules…and what she wants and ultimately finding newer and healthier intimacies in her relationships, which I hope will be more queer and more healthy…[I hope] that will continue,” Schaffer said.

“That’s a really beautiful process and something I want to see more of on TV. Representation-wise, we’re still working on getting trans women who lie on many different ends of the spectrum of conventional beauty and conventional attraction and conventional ways of navigating gender and sexuality. There’s a myriad of ways to do that. And many trans people move through all that in that myriad of ways, including myself.”

In the first season, which was based on an Israeli mini-series, fans saw SpiderMan actress Zendaya take on a different kind of role, as she played the part of Rue Bennett, a drug addict who had just been released from rehab.

As she tries to make sense of her future and come to grips with what happened, Rue makes friends with a girl named Jules, and her life transforms dramatically.
