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.

And we did our camera test and costume fittings were underway, and sets were being built … we were ready to go. And then the pandemic hit; coronavirus said, ‘Sit down.’ But, it’s exciting and everyone is so wonderful on that show. The cast is so fun and sweet and smart and it’s going to be really special. I’m happy to be part of it.”
