The glittery eyeshadow and Zendaya fan art are ready to be unleashed: The second season of Euphoria was released in 2022. Just days after Zendaya made history by taking home the award for Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 72nd Annual Emmy Awards, HBO announced that production on the highly anticipated second season of Euphoria has begun. The 24-year-old actress won the award for her portrayal of teen addict Rue Bennett. Second season premiered on January 9, 2022, and the remaining episodes were aired on Sunday nights at 9pm until February 28, 2022, when the season was over.
Executive producers of Euphoria are Ron Leshem, Gary Lennon, Zendaya, and Levinson. The television show is recorded in Sony Studios in Culver City, California, and Ulysses S. Grant High School in Los Angeles, California. The majority of the reviews for the programme have been favourable, praising its direction, music, performances by the cast (especially Zendaya, Schafer, and Sweeney), and handling of its challenging material. Additionally, because of the teenage setting, some critics thought the film’s nudity and sexual themes to be over the top. After Game of Thrones, it is the second-most watched show in HBO history.
Euphoria Season 2 Release Date
The series debuted on June 16, 2019, as Euphoria. In July 2019, the show received a second season renewal. In December 2020 and January 2021, there were two one-hour specials that were aired. The series was renewed for a third season in February 2022 after the second season’s January 9, 2022, launch.
Numerous awards have been bestowed upon the show, including nominations for the Outstanding Drama Series Primetime Emmy Award. Zendaya won a Primetime Emmy Award and a Satellite Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her performance. The same award was given to Sydney Sweeney, Colman Domingo, Martha Kelly, and Zendaya for season two.

‘Euphoria’ Season 2 Cast
Along with Zendaya, previous season characters Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer), Maddy Perez (Alexa Demie), and Lexi Howard (Maude Apatow), who is close friends with Bennett, also star.
Minka Kelly, who plays a drug-addicted housewife in Friday Night Lights, as well as independent musician Dominic Fike and rapper Lil Meech are among the new cast members.Tom Holland, who is rumoured to be Zendaya’s boyfriend, appears to have been actively seeking a part for some time.
The actor was asked by a fan in an IMDb video on the promotion tour for their new movie Spider-Man: No Way Home if he would consider a Euphoria cameo.
In December 2022, he said, “Listen, I have been petitioning for this for a long time and it has not happened yet, and I’m really upset.”
He continued, “I must have visited Euphoria at least thirty times this season.” According to Zendaya, the show’s makers “should have attempted to, like, Easter egg, throw you in there,” she said to Holland.
I desire to experience euphoria. After Holland continued, Zendaya retorted, “Okay. Let me speak with a few folks. HBO, let’s give them a call.After a few weeks, in February 2022, the public believed Holland was an extra in episode seven of season two (which was released on NOW TV on February 21).
In this episode, Lexi performs the world premiere of her play, which fans believe Holland attended. There is a playgoer in the audience who resembles the British actor quite well. Damn, even Tom Holland attended Lexi’s play! After the programme aired, one Twitter user said, “[sic]”. Another person chimed up, “What’s Spiderman doin’ there?”
Naturally, many fans turned to Zendaya when Holland appeared to be in the show.One admirer tweeted, “Not Zendaya getting Tom Holland a job,” in reference to the actress. Another remarked, “Zendaya genuinely did some calls.”

‘Euphoria’ Season 2: Ratings
HBO’s Euphoria finished its second season with a record-breaking first-night audience, bringing in numbers for the premium cabler that haven’t been seen since Game of Thrones ended in 2019.
According to HBO, the season two finale on Sunday attracted 6.6 million people across all platforms. This is the highest night one tune-in Euphoria has ever received and more than five times the audience for the season one finale back in August 2019.
Euphoria has received an average of 16.3 million views since the season debut on January 9 through Sunday. Since 2004, when Nielsen changed how it evaluated the premium cabler’s audience, it is more than double its season one average and more than any other HBO series, except from Game of Thrones. (The Sopranos averaged more than 10 million first-night viewers per episode during its early 2000s peak; HBO, of course, did not provide streaming services at that time.) According to HBO, the season two premiere has now surpassed 19 million viewers across all platforms.
