Prepare to tune into the new season of HBO’s teen drama Euphoria, which has premiered. And we, for one, couldn’t be happier. The gritty drama’s first season began in June 2019 and follows a group of teenagers as they experiment with sex, become entangled in the world of social media, and battle mental health.
Following the premiere of season one, HBO’s senior vice president of programming, Francesca Orsi, stated that the show has ‘created a fantastic world with an extraordinary ensemble led by the tremendously gifted Zendaya.’ Since the premiere of season one, Zendaya has garnered widespread appreciation for her portrayal of protagonist Rue Bennett, who struggles with drug addiction and mental health.
Additionally, the actor earned the prize for ‘Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series’ at the 72nd Emmy Awards in 2020, becoming her the youngest performer to ever win such an honor. ‘I just want to say that there is hope in our young people .
I know our television show is not always a shining example of that – but there is hope in our young people, and I want to say to all my peers out there doing the work in the streets, “I see you, I admire you, and I thank you,”‘ she said upon receiving the award. Zendaya’s ex-boyfriend Jacob Elordi, who portrays the series’ antagonist Nate Jacobs, also appeared in the show.
What Is the Plot of Euphoria Season 2?
Bennett overdosed in season one’s eighth episode (‘And Salt the Earth Behind You’), after the person she loves – Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer) – abandoned her on a train platform. Season two picks up immediately following Bennett’s relapse. She had been sober for three months prior.

Bennett is about to meet more upsetting moments and violent altercations in season two, according to the season two trailer, which was released on YouTube on November 23.
Police raids are paired with revelry, and it appears as though trauma is once again at the show’s core.
Who Will Star in Euphoria’s Second Season?
Along with Zendaya, previous season’s cast members reprise their roles, including Bennett’s closest friend Lexi Howard (Maude Apatow), the self-assured Maddy Perez (Alexa Demie), and Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer). Minka Kelly of Friday Night Lights, who will portray a drug-addicted housewife, as well as Indie musician Dominic Fike and rapper Lil Meech, have been added to the cast.
However, it appears as though Zendaya‘s reputed beau Tom Holland has been auditioning for roles for a while. During the promotional tour for their new picture Spider-Man: No Way Home, the actor was asked in an IMDb video by a fan if he would consider making a cameo appearance in Euphoria.
‘Listen, I have been petitioning for this for a long time and it has not yet occurred,’ he stated on December 16, ‘and I am quite dissatisfied.’ This content has been pulled directly from YouTube.

He continued, ‘I must have visited Euphoria at least 30 times this season.’ Zendaya told Holland that the show’s creator’ should have attempted to incorporate you as an Easter egg’. ‘I desire Euphoria!’ Holland continued, before Zendaya responded, ‘All right. Allow me to speak with a few folks.
HBO…call let’s them.’ Fans became convinced weeks later, in February 2022, that Holland was an extra in season two, episode seven (which was released on NOW TV on February 21). Lexi performs her play for the first time in the show, which fans believe was watched by Tom Holland.
One of the audience members did bear a striking resemblance to the British star. This content was pulled directly from Twitter. You may be able to find the same content in a different format or additional information on their website.
‘Damn, Lexi even managed to get Tom Holland to come to her play?? one Twitter user wrote following the show’s airing. ‘What is spider man doing over there ?’ another added. Many fans immediately assumed Zendaya was responsible for Holland’s apparent entrance in the program.
‘Not Zendaya getting Tom Holland a job,’ one Twitter user said. ‘Zendaya actually made several calls,’ another added.
