Listen up, Euphoria fans! Zendaya just dropped some serious hints about season 2 and it’s got us incredibly excited for Rue’s return.
Speaking to InStyle, the 23-year-old actress said: “I do miss Rue. She’s like my little sister in a lot of ways. And going back to that character is a home base for me.”
“There is a beautiful second season that has been written, but in order to do it the way we want to do it, we need to wait until it’s safer. There is an idea to do a couple of bridge episodes that can be shot safely but aren’t necessarily part of season 2. So, hopefully, we will be able to do those in the coming months. I can’t wait.”
‘I just want to fix everything’: Zendaya is the rising star we’re crushing on for her activist attitude as much as her acting skills
Euphoria – which stars Zendaya as Rue Bennett, a high school student battling drug addiction after taking oxycontin at 13 – aired in June 2019 and was confirmed for a second season just weeks later.
The second series began filming in March this year, but was put on hold due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

All the times Zendaya out-slayed everyone in the style stakes
While not much is known about the new season’s storylines, Storm Reid – who plays Rue’s younger sister, Gia – said that the season 1 cliffhanger will be addressed early on. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, she said: “Our whole show is for your own interpretation, and I did see the things where people ask me if [Rue] was deceased or not, or if she had relapsed in the last episode. I feel like again, it’s for your own interpretation, and the questions that you may have specifically about the eighth episode will be answered in the first couple of episodes of season 2”.
In terms of the cast, we know that alongside Zendaya, Angus Cloud will be returning as Fezco, Sydney Sweeney as Cassie Howard, Barbie Ferreira as Kat Hernandez, Maude Apatow as Lexi Howard, and Hunter Schafer as Jules Vaughn.
Unfortunately there’s no official release date or trailer yet, though we imagine the new season will follow the same launch pattern as the first, releasing in the US first before coming to the UK.
We’ll keep you updated when we know more, but for now, why not jog your memory of Rue and the gang by re-watching season 1?
