FANS have been waiting for the second season of Euphoria since the network announced it was renewed in July 2019.

Now, they are just weeks away from the second installment which will reportedly be a rollercoaster of a ride.

The release date of Euphoria season 2 has officially been announced

Episodes of season 2 were originally scheduled to start filming in March 2020 however, the Covid-19 pandemic forced an indefinite hiatus, which led to the massive delay.

Now, the HBO drama is scheduled to return on January 9, 2022, at 9pm EST with new episodes airing weekly.

Season 1 had a total of eight episodes but at this time, it remains unclear how many there will be with the upcoming season.

Despite the pandemic, the show was able to release two ...special... episodes to hold fans over until the release of season 2.
