We finally have a teaser of the new season, thanks to Zendaya.
Fans of Euphoria, rejoice: The breakout HBO series surrounding TV's edgiest cast of high schoolers is slated to return. The show, which stars Emmy-winner Zendaya, earned a die-hard fan base and gave rise to budding stars like Hunter Schafer, Barbie Ferreira, Jacob Elordi, and Alexa Demie when it premiered in the summer of 2019.
HBO renewed Euphoria just one month after it launched the series. Show creator Sam Levinson "has built an incredible world with an extraordinary cast led by the supremely talented Zendaya," the network's EVP of programming, Francesca Orsi, said at the time. "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."
Although the details of the sophomore season remain slim, the hype surrounding it certainly is not. Here's what we know about Euphoria's next chapter so far.

The new season “is not a fun watch.”
Zendaya described Euphoria Season 2 as “difficult” and “challenging” while speaking to Teen Vogue.
“It’s gonna be hard and it’s gonna be devastating sometimes, but I think Rue really deserves all of that care when it comes to her character, because I think she represents a lot for so many people. And I hope to make those people proud with our depictions of Rue [and] where all the characters go. I think this season’s not going to be easy, though. It’s not going to be a fun watch, I don’t think. Sometimes.”
The show won’t go on forever.
HBO’s president of programming, Casey Bloys, shut down the idea of Euphoria running for several seasons. “Well, [the characters] are in high school, so there are only so many seasons it can go,” he told TVLine. “There’s a time limit.”
In the meantime, however, there’s no official end date for the series. “We’ll follow [Sam Levinson’s] lead on that,” Bloys added. “There is no set plan. But I don’t think you want 30-year-olds playing [high school students].”
