The ‘Euphoria’ Season 2 release date is fast approaching and there is no doubt that fans are eagerly awaiting the release of this new season. ‘Euphoria’ was renewed for a second season in March, but HBO has not yet revealed an official ‘Euphoria’ release date. Below you can find everything we know about ‘Euphoria,’ including cast information and theories on what will happen in Season 2.
When does season 2 of Euphoria premiere?
Because of COVID-19, season 2 production was extremely delayed—as in, it started filming in 2021, despite its goal of airing season 2 that same year. In late 2020, HBO president Casey Bloys told Deadline that Euphoria would begin filming season 2 in “early 2021.” (So expect a premiere date of very late 2021 or early 2022.)

What happened at the end of Euphoria season 1?
The eighth and final episode of season 1, titled “And Salt the Earth Behind You,“ saw Rue relapsing (in a surreal musical sequence); Jules leaving for the big city; Kat and Ethan getting together at the winter formal; and Maddy swiping an incriminating CD from Nate’s room that could expose Nate’s father.
The first season of ‘Euphoria,’ HBO’s new drama about teenagers navigating high school, ended on a conclusive but poignant note with Rue relapsing and Maddy stealing Nate’s father’s CD. Before we celebrate the end of this story, here are five questions that need answering in ‘Season Two.’
What will Euphoria season 2 be about?
In July 2019, HBO announced that the second season had been greenlit, even before the first season had finished its run.
“Euphoria creator Sam Levinson has built an incredible world with an extraordinary cast led by the supremely talented Zendaya,” Francesca Orsi, EVP, HBO Programming, said in a statement obtained by EW. “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.”
“I am so excited to start shooting the second season of Euphoria with this incredible group of people who are telling our story that we created together,” Levinson told EW about his cast members. “They make me laugh until I’m crying every day—or they’re making me cry ’til it’s like laughing or whatever my mood is at any given moment.”
Off the back of the season 1 finale and the two following specials, we know that Rue is alive and that Jules has returned to her suburban home from the city. So, what’s likely to happen next to the group?
The plot details of the second season are being kept tightly under wraps – but thankfully, we have been served some tantalizing hints from the cast about each of their own characters in the new season.
“I think that my character is going to be someone who has a lot of guilt about the things he did in season one,” said Dane. “And there’s some sort of redemption arc or journey for him.”
Zendaya revealed that her character will also experience an emotional change – but she refused to say more than ‘she’ll go through something really difficult this year. However, it seems likely that ‘something difficult’ could refer to Jules (Zendaya) identifying as bisexual – which was hinted at by Jules herself back when she spoke with Dr. Melfi earlier on in the series.
The ‘Euphoria’ season one finale saw main character Jules (Zendaya) identify as bisexual and her friend Rueben (Jacob Elordi) commit suicide. In a recent interview with Deadline, Zendaya revealed that there’s ‘something really difficult’ coming for Jules this year – but it is not yet clear whether she will be dealing with the aftermath of these events or if something else has happened to her which will have an emotional impact on viewers.
