Euphoria Season 2 continues to be an intense, emotionally draining drama. Check out the details in my parents guide review.
Euphoria season 2 premiered its first episode on HBO last week on January 9th. The second season picks up right where the two-part Christmas specials left off and brings back Zendaya as the very troubled Rue. In Season one, we saw Rue struggle with sobriety and relapse during the finale. This time around, we watch Rue full-on back into drugs as she battles her inner demons. Check out the details in my parents guide review.

Euphoria Season 2 Age Appropriate Parents Guide
Let’s take a look at what parents need to know before letting their kids watch Euphoria season 2.
Language: Euphoria season 2 contains very strong language, with profanity used throughout. Lookout words include: f*ck, sh*t, c*nt, a**h*le, d*ck, b*st*rd, t*tties, d*mn, and more.
Sexual Content/Nudity: The series contains a ton of both sexual content and nudity. Viewers will see naked penises, breasts, bare bottoms, and possibly shots of female crotches in a particular stripper club scene. Characters are also shown engaging in graphic intercourse and oral sex.
Drugs/Alcohol: Euphoria season 2 continues to discuss Rue’s drug addiction and frequently shows scenes of her being high, and even close to death due to drug use. Teenagers are not only shown using and abusing drugs, but also drinking alcohol.
Violence: The series contains a lot of violence this season. Characters are shot with a gun, attacked with a hammer, beaten so badly they need to be hospitalized.
Euphoria season 2 is much more dark, intense, and explicit than season 1, and that is saying a lot because the first season touched on all the taboos surrounding drugs, sex, and teenage struggles. The events surrounding season 2 are so explicit and difficult to watch that before the season premiere, Zendaya herself released the following statement:
“I know I’ve said this before, but I do want to reiterate to everyone that Euphoria is for mature audiences. This season, maybe even more so than the last, is deeply emotional and deals with subject matter that can be triggering and difficult to watch. Please only watch it if you feel comfortable. Take care of yourself and know that either way you are still loved and I can still feel your support. All my love, Daya.”
While this author has only seen the first two episodes of Euphoria season 2, so far this season has lived up to everything that drew audiences in season one.Many newcomers to the show have flocked due to the popularity of the leading actress, Zendaya, and, admittedly, her storyline is the one many fans are most invested in. But it is the ensemble cast, and each of the struggles they also endure, that make the show as a whole such a success. This is true for season 2 so far.
