It’s taken a long time, but after a year of delays and reshoots, the trailer for Euphoria season two is finally out, and we’re going crazy. We’re put back into the world of Rue Bennett, a heroin addict who emerges from rehab still struggling to make sense of the world, and her partner in crime, Jules, who arrives into town and mixes things up. The first season ended with the two adolescents splitting up following a failed runaway attempt. The second season is expected to follow the kids as they regroup at school and cope with the aftermath of last season’s turmoil.
The teaser features the return of past cast members Sydney Sweeney, Alexa Demie, Barbie Ferreira, Maude Apatow, Maude Apatow, and newcomer Dominic Fike and Zendaya hints that this season will be far more challenging to watch. The programme will premiere on HBO Max in January of next year and will likely reclaim the TL.
Rue Bennett (Zendaya) is a heroin addict who has to adjust to life after leaving treatment. Euphoria’s first season premiered in 2019, followed by two specials in the two years after that. On November 23, the critically praised series released the teaser for its second season, which seemed to tease viewers that everything was about to change. “Everything feels so permanent when you’re younger,” Rue says in the trailer. “However, when you get older, you realise that nothing is permanent, and everyone you care about might vanish.”
The clip also features newcomer Dominic Fike as well as original cast members Sydney Sweeney (Cassie), Alexa Demie (Maddy), Barbie Ferreira (Kat), and Maude Apatow (Lexi). The fast-paced promo doesn’t reveal much about what’s in store for this season, but it does indicate that it will premiere on January 9, 2022.
Zendaya recently discussed her role and the “intense” season ahead in an interview with Teen Vogue. “It’s a rough season, and I’m in the thick of it,” she remarked. We’re in the middle of it, and I had a 2:30 a.m. wrap time last night. The concert, on the other hand, was intense.” The 24-year-old also spoke on the significance of her character Rue and the show’s complex topic.
“It’s challenging, and it’s a difficult season,” she said. “It’s going to be difficult and painful at times, but I believe Rue truly deserves all of that attention when it comes to her character because I think she symbolises a lot for so many people.” “I hope to make those people proud with our portrayals of Rue [and] where all the characters go.” However, I don’t think this season will be simple. I don’t believe it’ll be entertaining to watch.
