Break out the glittery eyeshadow and the Zendaya fan art: In 2022, Euphoria season 2 finally dropped. Fresh on the heels of Zendaya’s history-making win(opens in new tab) at the 72nd Annual Emmys—the 24-year-old actress snagged the Lead Actress in a Drama Series trophy for her portrayal of teen addict Rue Bennett—HBO confirmed that the pieces were finally falling into place for the second highly anticipated season of Euphoria. On January 9, 2022, the first episode of the second season finally aired; the remaining episodes aired Sunday nights at 9 p.m. until the end of February 2022.

Yes! On December 20, 2021, HBO Max dropped a trailer for the second season, with the cryptic tagline “REMEMBER THIS FEELING.” The almost three-minute clip opens with Rue wheeling a suitcase into a Narcotics Anonymous meeting; then we hear Rue’s voiceover about Jules, saying, “When I first met her, I was just immediately in love.” The rest of the trailer gives us glimpses of Rue and Jules dancing, Rue making a new friend, Cassie having a bathroom fashion meltdown, Maddy considering pregnancy.

Talking to Stylecaster, Sydney Sweeney, who plays Cassie, teased at a season 2 story arc that is apparently so over-the-top that it shocked even her: “I can tease that, when you ask about season 2, my heart drops. In a you-guys-have-no-idea-what-you’re-going-to-watch way. Cassie really needs to get her shit together. I can’t say anything else. Cassie has a crazy storyline in season 2 that I did not expect. Every time I read a new episode that Sam writes, my jaw is on the ground and I can’t believe this is something coming out of someone’s mind.”

In July, Zendaya told Teen Vogue: “It’s definitely challenging, it’s a challenging season. It’s gonna be hard and it’s gonna be devastating sometimes, but I think Rue really deserves all of that care when it comes to her character, because I think she represents a lot for so many people. And I hope to make those people proud with our depictions of Rue [and] where all the characters go. I think this season’s not going to be easy, though. It’s not going to be a fun watch, I don’t think. Sometimes.”

In a September story for British Vogue(opens in new tab), Euphoria showrunner Sam Levinson confirmed that the new season is going to be…dark, to say the least. “It’s such a brutal season and what I love the most about Z is she’s able to go to those dark places and then as soon as I call cut, she’s hanging out behind the monitor, eating Cheesecake Factory and cracking jokes.”Meanwhile, the show’s makeup artist Doniella Davy told CNN that the second season is “a more grown-up Euphoria…A lot of time has gone by. Everyone’s grown up a bit. We’re picking up in the same place, In August, HBO confirmed three new additions to the cast of Euphoria: Minka Kelly, the Friday Night Lights alum and TV mainstay; Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., an acting newbie recently cast(opens in new tab) in 50 Cent’s Black Mafia Family; and singer and performer Dominic Fike. Of the new season of Euphoria, Fike told Variety(opens in new tab): “It feels like a long music video.”

In addition, actor Kelvin Harrison Jr. (Luce, Waves) joined the cast in season 2. He reportedly was supposed to be in season 1 but couldn’t due to a scheduling conflict, so Levinson rewrote a part for him(opens in new tab). “Sam’s still figuring it out, but from the table-reads, I know this character is unlike anything I’ve ever seen on the screen,” he said. Added Levinson to GQ: “I honestly have no idea how to describe this character, but I can say that Kelvin is one of the most talented actors working today.

Lil Nas X has said that he’s a fan of the show and would have liked to have been on season 2, but that scheduling conflicts stopped him from making an appearance. “I was actually going to do Euphoria but I didn’t want to take time from finishing my album. It was going to be great…Season 3 it is,” he told Variety.
