Game of Thrones is long gone, Insecure won’t be back for another year, but we’re still ridiculously obsessed with HBO thanks to its edgy teen series Euphoria. It’s like Degrassi, but on
steroids molly, Xanax, Fentanyl, and whatever other drug the kids on the show are doing. If you’re caught up in its heady rush, you’re in luck—the show is returning for round two.
Today, HBO announced it would be renewing Euphoria for a second season. “Literally just got the call. Can’t say thank you enough for the support we’ve seen, wow,” Zendaya tweeted after the news was announced.
The series follows troubled 17-year-old Rue (Zendaya Coleman) as she grapples with drug addiction after her overdose. Add her new best friend Jules (Hunter Schafer), some high school drama, and a bunch of equally messed up and horny teens, and you’ve got yourself a hit—at least, that’s what Twitter has been saying since the series premiered.
“Euphoria creator Sam Levinson has built an incredible world with an extraordinary cast led by the supremely talented Zendaya,” Francesca Orsi, executive vp HBO Programming told The Hollywood Reporter. “We are so grateful that he chose HBO as the home for this groundbreaking series. We look forward to following these complex characters as their journeys continue through the challenging world they inhabit.”
Euphoria was created and written by Levinson, and is executive produced by Drake, Future the Prince, Ravi Nandan, Kevin Turen, and more. The series also stars Storm Reid, Barbie Ferreira, Algee Smith, Sydney Sweeney, Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, and Nika King.
