HBO posted a video teasing season 2 of Euphoria and confirming that it will arrive on the network in 2020.
Euphoria season 1 introduced audiences to the scandalous world of Gen Z teens. The show was a huge success and even secured the top spot on PopBuzz's best TV shows of 2019 list. HBO wasted no time in confirming a second season of the hit show but when does Euphoria season 2 premiere? While we don't know the exact premiere date of Euphoria season 2, HBO has officially confirmed that the show will return in 2020.

In a "hype sizzle reel" posted to Twitter on Monday (16 December), HBO previewed what fans could expect from the network in the coming year. It highlighted new seasons of shows like A Black Lady Sketch Show, Insecure, Succession and, of course, Euphoria.

The announcement is good news for fans who now have confirmation that they will not be descending into a Stranger Things-esque 2021 spiral. Its nothing short of a miracle when you can coordinate an extremely in-demand young TV cast for another season.
When we last left Rue, our protagonist had experienced a devastating relapse following months of sobriety. The incredible dance/performance number in the finale left a lot up for interpretation but creator Sam Levinson confirmed that while Rue is struggling, she is absolutely not dead.

As for the exact release date for Euphoria season 2, your guess is as good as ours. If the production schedule they followed for season 1 is any indication of what will go down in season 2, fans could have a new season in early summer 2020.
However, this is the network that gave us Big Little Lies season 1 in February 2017 and Big Little Lies season 2 in June 2019. So, WE SHALL SEE.
