When Sam Levinson first announced that he would be producing a show for HBO, there were many questions. Would it be as popular as his last project? How much nudity will we see? But one question was on everyone’s minds: Will Sam Levinson make this season of Euphoria better than the first one?
What is the information related to Sam Levinson’s talks about Euphoria Season 2?
Season 2 of Euphoria is brutal, according to creator and showrunner Sam Levinson. Season 1 of HBO’s Emmy Award-winning drama aired during the summer of 2019 and quickly caught on for its raw and boundary-pushing exploration of relationships, mental health issues, sex, drugs, and other pitfalls of teenage life. Euphoria follows a recovering drug addict who befriends a new student at school. The new student is transgender, and the recovering addict wants to help.
Just as the second season of Euphoria was about to start filming in March 2020, a pandemic hit. In the meantime, the director of this show made two special episodes with limited cast and locations. He also wrote and directed a film called Malcolm & Marie for Netflix starring Zendaya and John David Washington. This is about two characters, Zendaya’s Rue and Hunter Schafer’s Jules. They are in the first special episode. It was sad when they died at the end of last season.
What To Know About Euphoria Season 2?
Now, in an interview with Zendaya, who is in Dune and Spider-Man: No Way Home, the showrunner of Euphoria emailed. He said that the second season was “brutal.” Levinson had plenty of praise for Zendaya, the youngest woman ever to win an Emmy. He said:
It’s such a brutal season and what I love the most about Z is she’s able to go to those dark places, and then as soon as I call cut, she’s hanging out behind the monitor, eating Cheesecake Factory and cracking jokes. She’s also family. We just shoot the shit all day. We talk about the show, the characters, life, movies, politics. She’s one of the most grounded human beings I know.
What are the other details related to it?
In the first season, things were already difficult. So it is not a surprise that Levinson teased more of the same in the finale. The first season ended on a sad note as two characters decided to run away together, but one backed out at the last minute. Rue returns home from the Hunger Games, and he is sad. There is a surreal musical scene showing this. Special episodes show what happens to each character after these events, but there is not another season coming out right now.
Euphoria had Season 2 start filming this spring. Zendaya said they are about one-third of the way through filming. His plan was for season 2 of Euphoria to air on HBO sometime later this year, but it may have to be bumped to early 2022. In the meantime, fans should prepare for the brutality that is expected to come.
