“As willfully provocative as ever in its second season, Euphoria still isn’t for all tastes — but when its addictive ingredients are mixed just right, the results remain intoxicating,” states Critics Consensus on Rotten Tomatoes. 

The series stars Zendaya, Hunter Schafer, Nika King, Eric Dane, Angus Cloud, Jacob Elordi, Algee Smith, Sydney Sweeney, Alexa Demie, Barbie Ferreira, Maude Apatow, Javon Walton, Dominic Fike, Storm Reid, Austin Abrams, and more.

“The new episodes still pinball between the bombastic and the solemn, between understanding and exploitation, and that is its uncompromising identity,” says a Rotten Tomatoes’ top critic, Craig Mathieson.

Season 2 is a testament to Zendaya’s trailblazing career in Hollywood. Euphoria remains one of the most explosive, heartbreaking, and entertaining shows. Season 2 started strong and kept getting better, all the way to an unforgettable finale.

I loved season 2 of Euphoria. My favorite character was Fezco and I can’t wait for the next season.”
