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 looking forward to going back to work.
The actress spoke about the show’s hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic with Mj Rodriguez for Variety‘s Actors on Actors issue.
“We were supposed to go back to work, I believe, on March 16. And three or four days before that, they were shut down,” she recalled. “I can’t complain. I’m very lucky to be safe and healthy and still know that I have a job, Euphoria, that will be there. I think all we ever wanted was for people to feel seen through our work. And so that’s all I want to continue to do, to show the human side of what addiction does to a person. Hopefully, I get to get back into my Chucks and do it again.”
Barbie Ferreira wants Kat to explore her friendships.
After ending up with Ethan at the end of Season 1, Ferreira hopes her character will dive deeper into her dynamics with her friends rather than her love life in the upcoming season.
“God, I think I just really wanna see Kat come into herself more and explore her dynamics with her friends,” she told ET. “I think that’s where I want to see Kat more, like, where is her place with her friends, how does she bring her confidence into her everyday life and school life?”
