• The renewal of "Euphoria" season two was announced in July 2019
  • The shooting was briefly halted because of the COVID-19 pandemic 
  • Fans can expect to see some new faces in Season 2 

"Euphoria" fans can now celebrate as the very successful teen drama is all set to return for season 2.

"Euphoria" stars Zendaya in the lead role, who plays a high school student struggling with drug addiction while navigating friendships. It may not be a typical teen drama, but fans say it is a pretty fantastic show.

The show aired two special episodes, one in December last year and another in January, leaving fans craving for more. So, the news of a new season is exciting for many. The show also stars several other popular young actors including Jacob Elordi, Sydney Sweeney, Barbie Ferreira, Maude Apatow and Hunter Schafer.

In July 2019, HBO confirmed that the show was renewed for season 2, just a month after the sow hit the screens. As soon as the news went public, Zendaya wrote on Twitter, "Literally just got the call. Can't say thank you enough for the support we've seen, wow…."

The cast had begun shooting for the second season but had to take a break because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The shooting resumed earlier this month.

Most of the main cast members will be returning for "Euphoria" Season 2 and we will see more of Zendaya as Rue, Hunter Schafer as Jules, Algee Smith as Christopher, Jacob Elordi as Nate and Sydney Sweeney as Cassie. Each character will have an important part to play as they deal with problems of their own.

Fans will also get to see some new faces in Season 2. According to Backstage, HBO was looking for a Black male actor to play one of the leading roles in the series. It is not clear if the company has finalized anyone or what part he will be playing.

Kelvin Harrison Jr., who was set to play a part in the show, has now backed out due to some scheduling conflicts, Teen Vogue reported.

Season 2 will likely address whether Rue (Zendaya) actually had a relapse and what happened after that.

"Euphoria" Season 1 is streaming on HBO Max in the U.S.
