Euphoria Season 2 Trailer: On January 9, the hard-partying high schoolers of Euphoria will return to HBO with their dismal party.
Zendaya may have helped Spider-Man: No Way Home dominate the movie office last weekend, but the second season of HBO’s teens-on-drugs thriller Euphoria may be set to break hearts. After a year off, the show returns to the streamer in early January with a cloud of negative feelings, excessive eyeliner, and steamy home parties.
IMDb: Earlier Thursday, HBO released the teaser for the second season—along with the accompanying hangover. Rue Bennett (Zendaya) carries a mystery bag about East Highland, attending drug therapy groups, drug dens, and any other location where Gen Z could be seeking for a score. How else do you think they’ll get over their adolescent angst and boredom?

The pandemic caused the postponement of the long-awaited second season. Rue was last seen between December 2020 and January 2021 for the Euphoria special, which aired in two parts. Things have become a lot crazier since then, as she continues to struggle with addiction, relationships, and, ugh, high school. Plus, you’ve got Sydney Sweeney, the breakthrough star of White Lotus, screaming over her fake Dolly Parton costume.
Kayala Kumari Upadhya of The A.V. Club graded both parts of the Euphoria special a “A.” She described the first as follows:
While I struggled with Euphoria’s first season and eventually found its execution to be uneven—all flair, little substance—it wasn’t the show’s maximalist inclinations that turned me off. In fact, I thought Euphoria to be immensely engrossing and immersive in its most flashy moments. However, its aesthetics were sometimes hampered by a shaky basis, with many of its characters trying to break free from stereotypes. “Trouble Don’t Always Last” is a drastic shift in Euphoria’s sound, and it’s a powerful one. The stripped-down episode is most likely the result of being shot and produced during the COVID-19 epidemic, but while it’s a very different Euphoria, it doesn’t feel like it’s missing anything.
Euphoria, created by Sam Levinson, son of filmmaker Sam Levinson, and based on an Israeli sitcom, returns the teenage characters to the East Highlands gutters. Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith, and Sydney Sweeney are among the cast members.
On January 9, 2022, at 9 p.m. EST, Euphoria will return to HBO and HBO Max. HBO releases new episodes every week, which are also available to view on HBO Max.
