Euphoria is one of HBO’s best shows right now. Its second season was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic but the time has finally come for us to catch up with the show’s characters — something this show has done quite well as it highlights each character’s background per episode.
While Euphoria mostly revolves around Rue and her struggle with drugs, the show doesn’t treat the characters surrounding her as props. While Rue is the narrator of the story, we are given a glimpse into the lives of the others through her eyes.
Last season, we got to know Rue, Nate, Kat, Jules, Maddy, McKay, and Cassie as they each got their own introduction. Season 2 is following the same format, and the first episode showed us Fez’s past.
Unfortunately for those who are used to bingeing whole seasons in one go, Euphoria’s episodes aren’t dropping in one go. You have to wait each week for a new one. If you’re itching to know who the coming episodes will spotlight, Euphoria’s Instagram account posted character portraits weeks before the show premiered. Fez’s picture was the first one so if the posts really are hints, then we’ll know more about Lexi’s background in episode two.
Here are the other character portraits:
Almost all characters that will be featured are returning from season 1, but we do have a new guy in town. We can only wait and see what Elliot’s role will be like in the coming episodes of Euphoria.
You can watch Euphoria Season 2 on HBO Go.
