Euphoria may have had just one season so far, but for My So-Called Life, the Zendaya-led HBO series already feels like the glittery-eyed, soul-weary Gen Z answer. It was announced on Monday that the series will return for another season; let's review what we know about Euphoria's season 2 before its premiere date.
Should Zendaya come back as a depressed Rue Bennett high school student?
The response seems to be "yes," as the actress nominated for the Critics Choice Award tweeted with excitement when it was first revealed that the series would return in July for a second season:
Ideally, fan-favorites Jules (Hunter Schafer), Lexi (Maude Apatow), and Kat (Barbie Ferreira) will also return to the series together with Waves actress Alexa Demie, who plays Maddy.
What's going to happen in season 2?
It's too early to say for sure, but in an interview with the New York Times, Ferreira teased the idea of an LGBTQ+ storyline, telling the newspaper, "I think Kat is a little queer, but that could be my viewpoint." Ferreira also said she would like to see her character, Kat, "make bad decisions," which sounds like making a promising season.
How exactly do we predict Euphoria?
For a second season, the show might come back, but we definitely shouldn't expect it to last forever. "Alright, [ the characters ] are in high school, and there are so many seasons it can go," Casey Bloys, HBO chairman, told TVLine in July. We put our money on a total of three seasons.
When will it come back?
Euphoria's Season 2 will debut on HBO sometime in 2020, as we learned on December 16, when a sizzle reel of its upcoming shows was released. Nevertheless, a specific release date has not yet been revealed by the series, so check back for updates.
