At long last, TV viewers can finally catch up with the Gen-Z high schoolers of East Highland when Euphoria returns Jan. 9 to HBO Max. The second season of the cult-favorite high school drama — which has spawned no shortage of fashion and beauty trends — includes eight episodes featuring Emmy-winning star Zendaya as Rue Bennett and Hunter Schafer as Jules Vaughn. (Expect many of the debut episode’s looks to turn up on social media and at schools come Monday morning.)
Euphoria‘s second season follows two pandemic specials devoted to its main characters. Schafer co-executive produced Jules’ episode, “F*ck Anyone Who’s Not a Sea Blob,” which she co-wrote with showrunner Sam Levinson. The holiday special follows the teen as she reflects on the past year. Zendaya’s special, “Trouble Don’t Last Always,” sees Rue celebrating Christmas and relapsing.
The official trailer below gives a peek of the love, heartbreak and addiction to come for its characters. In addition to newcomers Dominic Fike, Minka Kelly and Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., the series stars returning cast members Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Algee Smith and Sydney Sweeney.
Based on the Israeli series of the same name, the cult-favorite show was delayed due to the pandemic and filming picked back up last year. In addition to Zendaya’s win for outstanding lead actress, Euphoria also earned Emmys for outstanding contemporary makeup (non-prosthetic) and for original music and lyrics.
