Euphoria premiered on HBO in the US on Sunday, June 16 and there are still two more episodes to go until the first series comes to an end. Euphoria will air in the UK on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV on Tuesday, August 6. The series follows a group of teenagers as they grow up in a world of sex, drugs and relationships. Zendaya’s character, Rue Bennett, is at the centre of the drama as a recovering drug addict who has just left rehab.
Will there be another series of Euphoria?
There is good news for Euphoria fans, HBO has confirmed there will be another series of the show.
An official release date has not been announced by HBO, but the new series is expected to air in 2020.
Euphoria is HBO’s first major teen drama series, starring Zendaya, so it is pretty unsurprising season two was given the green light.
The controversial show has also been extremely popular with young viewers since it aired.

WHERE IS EUPHORIA FILMED? WHERE IS EUPHORIA SET?
Euphoria was created and written by Sam Levinson and is executively produced by Drake, Future the Prince, Ravi Nandan, Kevin Turen, and many more.
