Filming on Euphoria’s second season is finally underway after being put on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and there is none happier than Zendaya.
The 24-year-old actress, who plays Rue, shared a series of behind the scenes photos on her Instagram Story while on the set of the HBO drama.
“Missed this kid,” Zendaya captioned a shot of masked co-star Angus Cloud — who plays drug dealer Fez — seated on a kitchen counter dressed in baggy jeans, a blue crew neck.
“And these kids…” she added along with a picture of friend Alex and lighting technician Danny Durr relaxing on a couch in between takes.
Zendaya ended her slideshow with a photo of sound stage seven, where Euphoria is filmed. “Just being back here in general…missed it,” she captioned the pic.
Euphoria’s season one finale ended with Rue and Jules — played by Hunter Shafer — planning to run away together until Rue backed out, leaving Jules to leave without her, which caused Rue to relapse.
HBO dropped two so-called “bridge episodes” to hold fans over until the delayed season two.
The first, titled “Trouble Don’t Always Last,” aired in December and showed Rue celebrating Christmas alone in a diner, while replaying the incident in her mind as her sponsor Ali — played by Colman Domingo — helps her out.
The second special episode, which aired in January, titled “F*** Anyone Who’s Not A Sea Blob,” followed Jules over the Christmas holiday as she reflected on the past year.
Season two of Euphoria is expected to premiere later this year or in early 2022.
