When Does ‘Euphoria’ Season 2 Premiere?

Love, addiction, toxic masculinity and mental illness — the first season of Euphoria covered some of the hardest topics and made it look easy. Fans fell in love with characters like Fez and Rue. By the season finale, some viewers were left wanting more. When does the second season of Euphoria premiere? Here’s what we know about the upcoming episodes of HBO’s drama series.

‘Euphoria’s’ season finale premiered on August 4, 2019

For the past eight weeks, fans breathlessly followed the stories of Rue, Jules, Nate, and the students of East Highland. Viewers saw Rue battle with her addiction, Cassie struggle to find love, and Maddy wiggle her way out of an abusive relationship. Still, the story of Euphoria isn’t over. With season one’s finale leaving many unanswered questions, some fans are wondering if there will be another season of HBO’s drama.

The viewers are in luck. After HBO’s twitter account shared that they renewed the series for a second season, cast members and fans expressed their excitement. Zendaya, who plays Rue, tweeted, “literally just got the call. Can’t say thank you enough for the support we’ve seen, wow.”

HBO’s renewed the drama series for a second season

Being that this is one of HBO’s youngest-skewing television shows, it was only fitting that it was renewed for a second season. Some fans even believe Zendaya will be nominated for an Emmy Award for her portrayal of Rue.

Euphoria creator Sam Levinson has built an incredible world with an extraordinary cast led by the supremely talented Zendaya,” Francesca Orsi, EVP, HBO Programming, said in a statement according to Entertainment Weekly. “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.”

It is unclear which actors will return for the second season. Some characters’ fates are unknown thanks to the season finale, including Fez, Jules, and Rue. However, due to Zendaya’s Twitter account and Instagram post, fans speculate Rue will return for season 2.

When does the second season of ‘Euphoria’ premiere?

Production for Euphoria’s second season has not begun. In fact, not much has been revealed about the upcoming episodes of the series. Will Nate (finally) go to jail? Will Fez be killed by Mouse? According to Heavy, some speculate the show will return around the same time next year, presumably around June 2020. Until then, fans, (and cast members,) have to guess what happens to Rue, Jules, and other characters.

“I have a lot to say, and I don’t know how to get it out, or even process these last 8 weeks but I’ll try,” Zendaya wrote on Instagram. “I’m so grateful for this show. For the beautiful family I’ve gained from it, for the self-discovery and purpose I’ve found in it, and the people that we’ve been able to connect with and speak to through it. We spent months, hard months, pouring ourselves into something we love, and it was an honor to have done so beside so many insanely talented, extraordinary people.”

Season 2 of HBO’s drama series, Euphoria, is expected to premiere sometime in 2020.
