Sam Levinson’s teen drama television series, starring Zendaya, premiered on HBO on June 16, 2019. The series in question is Euphoria.
Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin devised the series, which is partially based on the Israeli television miniseries of the same name.
The series follows a group of high school teenagers as they navigate intimate relationships, drugs, friendships, love, identity, and trauma.
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 were among the series’ extended cast members.
Euphoria has garnered enormous popularity since its initial release due to excellent word of mouth, critical acclaim, and multiple honors, including a Primetime Emmy Award and a Satellite Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series.
Season 2 of ‘Euphoria’ has been confirmed, as has the release date
HBO announced on October 19, 2020, that two new episodes of Euphoria would bridge the gap between seasons 1 and 2.
The first episode aired in early December and focused on the relationship between Rue (Zendaya) and her sponsor Ali (Colman Domingo), while the second episode focused on Jules (Hunter Schafer).
In terms of the second season, HBO first stated in July 2019 that the show has been renewed.
This year, the series creator, Levinson, informed GQ that it has been “pushed till 2021,” most likely mid-to-late 2021.
“I think one of the few positive side effects of this messed-up year is the gap between seasons 1 and 2,” he continued.
“It’s incredibly tough to isolate yourself from the response and write from the same point of creative freedom because you know what people liked or didn’t like,” he continued.
I really hope we can keep exploring, staying curious, and experimenting so that the show may grow in whichever manner it can.”
Zendaya also discussed her experiences filming Season 2 of Euphoria with Teen Vogue in July 2021.
“It’s a rough season, and I’m in the middle of it,” the 5 feet 10 inches tall [height] actress explained.
“I had a 2.30 a.m. wrap time last night; we’re right in the middle of it.”
“However, the show was intense. And it’s really personal to not only us and everyone who works on it but also to others who have been able to relate so intimately to the characters or see their own experiences reflected in Rue.
“As a result, we take it very seriously. And it’s really difficult, it’s a difficult season,” she remarked.
HBO officially revealed the trailer for the second season, as well as the release date, on November 23, 2021.
The makers stated two episodes of the show will be released on January 9 and January 16 of 2022 in the compelling trailer.
The plot of ‘Euphoria’ Season Two
Bennett overdoses in the final episode of season one when the person she loves, Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer), abandons her on a railway platform.
Season two is expected to pick up after Bennett’s relapse. She had been sober for three months prior.
Bennett, according to the previously released teaser, is about to face more upsetting times and violent altercations. It also featured police raids paired with partying, and it appears trauma is at the heart of the performance once again.
Season one characters such as Bennett’s best friend Lexi Howard (Maude Apatow), confident self-charged Maddy Perez (Alexa Demie), and Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer) will return, along with Zendaya.
Similarly, Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly, who will play a drug-addicted housewife, will join the cast, as well Indie musician Dominic Fike and rapper Lil Meech.

Filming for the show began in earnest
The first peek of Euphoria Season 2 was released on March 11, 2020, when the official Euphoria Twitter account published a picture of Zendaya and Angus Cloud (Fez) seated side by side at a table read.
“We’re off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” The photo was labeled, implying that development for the upcoming season was well underway.
During a virtual Variety chat with Pose’s Mj Rodriguez, the actress revealed that production on the second season had been halted only days before filming was supposed to begin.
“I believe we were meant to return to work on March 16, ,” she explained.
“And, literally, three or four days before that, they were shut down.
‘I was so near,’ I thought. We had camera testing, hair, and makeup trials, got to see everyone, and had the sets erected.”
“I mean, the scripts were completed, and I was just so excited—really, all I want to do is go home.”
“But of course, this has all happened and I’m simply grateful that I’m in the position I’m in.
I have no complaints. I’m really fortunate to be secure and healthy, and to know that my job, Euphoria, will be there for me.”
After concluding her Spider-Man movie commitment, Zendaya later joined the filming.
The cast was officially back on site for Euphoria on May 5, 2021.
The actress also revealed on her Instagram Stories that production was ramping up again.
She informed the Associated Press in July 2021 that the actors and crew were about “one-third” of the way through filming.
