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.

Zendaya is coming back as Rue.
Although Rue’s story ended on a cliffhanger in the first season, it appears we’ll get some clarity in the upcoming episodes. Storm Reid, who plays Rue’s younger sister, Gia, teased what’s to come while speaking to Entertainment Weekly. Just a note: Spoilers lie ahead.
“Yes, our whole show is for your own interpretation, and I did see the things where people ask me if she was deceased or not, or if she had relapsed in the last episode,” she said after the finale. “I feel like again, it’s for your own interpretation, and the questions that you may have specifically about the eighth episode will be answered in the first couple of episodes of Season 2.”
Zendaya also celebrated the show’s renewal on social media, hinting that she will in fact appear in the next season. Photos from the table read later on confirmed her return.
She later told InStyle of playing the role, “I do miss Rue. She’s like my little sister in a lot of ways. And going back to that character is a home base for me.”
Literally just got the call. Can’t say thank you enough for the support we’ve seen, wow… https://t.co/XJtdQaWaL9
