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.

Gia could be playing a bigger role.
Reid also told Entertainment Weekly that she’d be interested in doing an episode solely focused on her character, if that’s in the cards with the writers. She said she and the team are “trying to really just develop her character because the first season she’s just the little sister staying on the sidelines, but she’ll be older and she’ll really have her own opinion, and really become her own person.” The actress added, “I feel like you’ll be seeing a lot more Gia in the second season.”
There are going to be some new additions to the cast.
“They’re casting a couple of new characters, but I can’t tell you much,” Alexa Demie told ELLE.com.
Her comments came more than a month after cast listings reportedly surfaced and revealed potential new Euphoria characters: Darian, a 17-year-old man who’s a sensitive and vulnerable outsider; Ray, a 17-year-old man with a “pure heart” who’s “attractive in a real and accessible way”; Ami, a woman aged 18 to 20 who’s a drug addict and stripper, and “talks shit”; and Serena, a “sassy and tough” woman in her 50s.
Kelvin Harrison Jr. of Waves and The High Note is one of the new additions to the cast. “It was something that we had talked about for a while, because I wanted to be on Season 1 and things didn’t really go that way,” he told Variety. “Suddenly, all the stars aligned and I got to be there.”
