HBO’s ‘Euphoria’ Renewed For Second Season

Share on Facebook

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the success of HBO’s new drama, Euphoria, is unlikely to have passed you by. Whether it’s the controversially gritty scenes depicting all manner of illicit teen activities, the amazing acting performances by previously unknown stars, or the incredibly stylish way that the show is filmed, it seems as though no one can stop talking about it.

And its success has now been cemented, with HBO execs renewing the show for a second season. We can’t wait.

If you’re still yet to tune in to the epic teen drama, we’re here to convince you that you need to. Wondering what all the fuss is about? Read on.

Euphoria came to HBO on June 16th.

And, from the very first episode, the world knew that we weren’t in store for your typical, saccharine-sweet teen drama series. Euphoria offered something completely different.

The story essentially revolves around a group of high-school students in suburban Los Angeles, struggling with the real issues faced by teens today.

And the intertwining storylines faced by each of the series’ leads ingeniously represent the different things that affect generation Z – as horrifying as that may be to parents!

From teenage drug addict, Rue, and wannabe it-girl, Maddie, to human boiling pot of repressed rage, Nate, each character has incredible depth. In spite of the extreme nature of the plot, there’s also a lot of believability.

It tackles issues such as mental illness, substance abuse, and addiction, varying sexualities, leaked nudes, self-harm, sexual violence, and loneliness. And that’s just in the first episode.

If you’re not super brave, we don’t recommend watching it with anyone that you’re not 100% comfortable with – or you risk a pretty awkward situation.

And, when you combine this with the age of the characters – and, let’s face it, the age of the actors – this can make for some pretty shocking viewing.

Many believed that the show was just too hardcore and called for it to be removed from our screens. Of course, this just added to Euphoria’s mystique, and likely contributed to the show’s popularity.

Pretending that these situations don’t trouble teens of today won’t stop them from happening. But, underneath it all, Euphoria is really a show about love.

Jules is portrayed incredibly by trans model and activist, Hunter Schafer. Many praised the way that Euphoria depicted Jules – as a person first, with her trans-ness secondary to her character as a whole.

And there was another reason for Euphoria’s cultural impact.

The way that the characters on the show were styled really caught the attention of the internet. The clothes and makeup of the show were massively unique.

Euphoria make-up became something of a meme.

Hey, anything that gets more people gluing gemstones to their faces is a-ok with us!

Even if you aren’t invested in the storylines and character arcs (which seems, quite frankly, impossible) then it’s worth giving Euphoria a go just because it’s so easy on the eye.

In fact, it seems as if no other show has quite had such an immediate effect on how people engage with their beauty products.

Love it or hate it, Euphoria make-up is undeniably interesting – and we can’t wait to see some more of these incredible looks in the future.

The Euphoria make-up trend is so prominent, in fact …

That Instagram announced earlier this month that they are launching their very own Euphoria filters – for when you just don’t have time to glue a bunch of rhinestones around your eyes.

Because, last month, before the first season’s run had even ended, HBO confirmed what fans had been hoping for. Euphoria was coming back for season two.

But we also wanted answers as to what the hell that final musical number was – and what that means for Rue’s recovery journey.

We wanna know what happens to every member of the Euphoria cast – and that really speaks volumes as to the quality of the show.

We’re very excited.

Although the release date of the second season is still to be confirmed, it’s expected to air in June of 2020. Only nine months to go! And, if you’re in the mood to stream something else in the meantime, check out our list of what’s coming to Netflix in September.
