After the high drama of the Euphoria season one finale, it's no wonder that everyone is already wondering when season two will come out. We've got both good news and bad news for you. The good news: HBO already renewed the show for a second season, so we'll definitely get some resolution to the finale's big cliffhangers. Now for the bad news: we have absolutely no idea when that second season will actually come out.
The edgy drama was renewed only a few episodes into its first season. At the time, HBO's Executive Vice President of Programming Francesca Orsi told Variety: "Euphoria creator Sam Levinson has built an incredible world with an extraordinary cast led by the supremely talented Zendaya. 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." The same Variety article also notes that Euphoria is the youngest-skewing program on HBO's streaming platforms. Younger viewers are a target demographic for most programming, so the presence of a strong young viewer base is always good news for a show like this.
It's still unclear what format the new season will take or when it will debut. The first season consists of eight episodes, so we can probably assume that season two will have a similar episode count. Given the way that everyone's stories were pretty much left hanging in the balance at the end of the season finale, it also seems safe to assume that most of the main cast members will be back (yes, including Zendaya as Rue). Shooting hasn't started on season two yet by the sounds of what the cast is posting on social media — Zendaya, for instance, shared a heartfelt thank-you post on Instagram during Sunday night's finale that included the line, "Can't wait to do it all again!" HBO doesn't operate on the usual Fall-to-Spring network TV schedule, so it's very much up in the air when we'll see Euphoria again — but at least we know that we definitely will!
