Fans pretty much lost it when Zendaya‘s new HBO teen drama series, titled Euphoria premiered in June 2019. Now, the cast is officially gearing up for their second season after two special episodes were released.

We really missed them. Two special Euphoria episodes coming soon. First one December 6th on @hbo,” the former Disney Channel star and Emmy-winner uploaded to Instagram in 2020. The first bonus episode followed main character Rue as she celebrates Christmas in the wake of her relapse at the end of season 1, and it aired on HBO in December 2020. The second special episode was all about Jules’ Christmas holiday, and premiered in January 2021.

Now, the entire cast has officially returned to set because, according to IndieWire, season 2 started filming in March 2021. “The goal is to release episodes this year,” the show’s creator, Sam Levinson, told the publication. In May 2021, Zendaya’s Instagram posts confirmed that the stars were back on set.

During a September 2021 interview with British Vogue, Sam teased that “it’s such a brutal season.”

HBO first confirmed in December 2019 that the Drake-produced show would return for a new season. For those who missed it, she show — based on the 2012 Israeli series of the same name — followed a group of high school students as they deal with teenage issues including the pressure of finding themselves, dealing with trauma, social media, friendship and love.

Ever since the first season came to an end fans have had a lot of questions. Will the same cast return for a second season? What’s going to happen on season two? When will the show premiere? Are there going to be new characters?

Well, according to Sydney Sweeney, these questions will definitely be answered when it comes to her character. “[Cassie] doesn’t take very far steps [to moving on],” the actress told Elite Daily in April 2021. “That’s all I can say.”

As for what she hopes to see in the coming episodes from her character? “I’d love to see her relationship with Lexi more,” the actress told the website. “I think that they have such a beautiful yet broken sisterhood, and I think it’d be really cool to dive into the dynamic.”
