Experimentation with bodies, sexuality and substances -something that was pointed out by some critics as an “excessive” appearance of the strip– is one of the main themes of this proposal along with other sensitive issues and, in this case, represented without sweeteners as identity, relationships and trauma.

Postponed filming and total secrecy

Like so many productions, the filming of the second season of Euphoria it had to be postponed for several months due to the pandemic. But last year around Christmas HBO released a special episode starring only Zendaya and Colman Domingo, in which both have a very deep conversation about life and what it means to face difficult situations.

In January it was followed by another chapter focused on Hunter Schafer, the actress who became a global trans icon from Jules Vaughn, his character in the series. Schafer also wrote that episode, in which marked his debut as a screenwriter.

More than two years have passed since the end of the first season. That last episode showed Rue relapsing to drugs; Jules leaving for the big city; Cassie looking for an abortion; and Maddy leaving an incriminating CD of Nate’s room that could expose his father.

Both HBO, Sam Levinson and the main actors have been very careful when it comes to revealing questions about the plot of the new installment. The only thing clarified by the creator and director of Euphoria was that Rue did not die, a rumor that had settled among fans at the end of the first season.
