Drake’s HBO Series “Euphoria” Starring Zendaya Is Coming Back For Season 2 In 2020
Rue & Jules will return!
We recently saw the debut of the teen drama that earned itself a strong fanbase and pretty high critics' ratings. The series focuses on topics of drugs, friendship, and romance along with issues of sexuality and violence. If you've been filling your heart with other related content while you eagerly wait for its return, you'll be glad to know that Euphoria season two was confirmed by HBO to be coming sometime next year.
The first season premiered in June and was almost immediately renewed for a second one in July.
It was created by American director and screenwriter, Sam Levinson, and is based on an Israeli drama of the same name.
There's a whole bunch of executive producers including Levinson, but also Toronto's most iconic rapper.
Drake added producing to his long list of work experience that also includes acting, songwriting, and various business ventures.
In a Twitter video posted earlier this week, the HBO account shared a variety of shows coming back or being introduced to the channel. It starts off with a shot on Zendaya, who plays Rue Bennett, a 17-year-old overcoming a drug addiction while in the midst of high school.
Zendaya stars opposite Maude Apatow who plays her best friend, Lexi Howard. If her last name looks familiar, it's because she is, in fact, the daughter of Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow.
In her acting debut, Hunter Schafer plays Rue's new friend and eventual love interest, Jules Vaughn. She is a transgender character on screen as well as in real life.
According to Refinery29, Jules will return going through changes, "in terms of clothing, expect to see a darker, more urban look for Jules going forward." They also wrote that it "will also include some more of Hunter Schaefer’s original artwork."
Other stars in the series include Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Sydney Sweeney, and Eric Dane ("McSteamy" from Grey's Anatomy).
HBO hasn't yet confirmed the date of the season two release.
