HBO’s teen drama Euphoria is probably one of the best dramas available. Major issues like drug addiction, childhood drama, teenage sex, and self-esteem are the focus of Euphoria. Levinson’s own past helped him in making this fabulous show. Euphoria was released in 2019, and it didn’t take much time to become popular among the audiences. The show gathered huge compliments from all across the globe.
It showed the issues in such a way that it made an impact on the audiences. People can’t easily forget about the greatness of this show. Zendaya even won an Emmy for her role as Rue in the show.

Despite this, two special episodes were released in December 2020 and January 2021. The filming part for the second season was resumed in April 2021. Keeping all things in mind, we can expect Euphoria to return for its second season by the second or third quarter of 2022.

Kat finds her new self while she becomes a cam girl and then develops feelings for Ethan. Cassie undergoes an abortion and later breakups with McKay. Fezco tries to stop Rue from getting into more drugs.
