Ever since the premiere of Euphoria in 2019, the HBO drama has been a hit with viewers.

With an impressive 90 percent average audience scoring on Rotten Tomatoes, the Sam Levinson-created series follows a group of high school students as they navigate through the normal thing teens go through, including relationship challenges, struggles with identity, and temptations of drugs and sex.

In the starring role of Rue Bennett is Zendaya Coleman, who won an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series in 2020.

In July 2019, months before the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt on many series' around the globe, HBO ordered a second season of their hit series. Then, months later, as The Hollywood Reporter confirmed, the network announced that two special episodes would air prior to the start of season two, the first of which was given the title, “Trouble Don’t Last Always.”

Although an official season two trailer has not been released, HBO did share a teaser on YouTube months ago.

During an interview with Bustle in July, Coleman teased fans about what they should expect from Euphoria season two, saying that while they hadn't yet wrapped production, filming had been "difficult" up to that point.

“It’s definitely challenging,” she shared. “It’s a challenging season. It’s gonna be hard and it’s gonna be devastating sometimes, but I think Rue really deserves all of that care when it comes to her character, because I think she represents a lot for so many people.”

During an interview with Stylecaster, via Marie Claire, Sweeney opened up about the over-the-top storylines of the sophomore season of the HBO show.

"I can tease that, when you ask about season 2, my heart drops. In a you-guys-have-no-idea-what-you’re-going-to-watch way. Cassie really needs to get her sh-t together. I can’t say anything else. Cassie has a crazy storyline in season 2 that I did not expect. Every time I read a new episode that Sam writes, my jaw is on the ground and I can’t believe this is something coming out of someone’s mind," she stated.
