Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Drake and writer/creator Sam Levinson, EUPHORIA is a one-hour scripted series that follows a group of high-school students as they navigate a minefield of drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship. This series explores the teenage landscape of substance-enhanced parties and anxiety-ridden day-to-day life with empathy and candor. The series follows 17-year-old Rue Bennett, a drug addict fresh from rehab, who's struggling to make sense of her future. Her life changes dramatically when she meets Jules Vaughn, a trans girl who recently moved to town following her parents' divorce, and like Rue is searching for where she belongs. Also in Rue's orbit are classmates Nate Jacobs, a jock whose anger issues mask sexual insecurities; Maddy Perez, Nate's on- and off-again girlfriend; Chris McKay, a football star who finds the adjustment from high school to college harder than expected; Cassie Howard, whose sexual history continues to dog her; Lexi Howard, Cassie's younger sister and Rue's level-headed childhood friend; and Kat Hernandez, a body-conscious teen exploring her sexuality.

On Sunday, December 6, 2020 at 9pm, the one-hour EUPHORIA special, "Trouble Don't Last Always," made its linear television debut -- two days after its world premiere on HBO Max on Friday, December 4. In the aftermath of being left by Jules at the train station and relapsing, this special follows Rue as she celebrates Christmas. Jules also appears in the special, which was written and directed by series creator Sam Levinson.

On Sunday, January 24, 2021 at 9pm ET/PT, HBO debuted the linear television premiere of "F*ck Anyone Who's Not a Sea Blob," a one-hour EUPHORIA special, two days after it debuted on HBO Max on Friday, January 22, 2021 at 9pm ET/6pm PT. This special follows Jules over the Christmas holiday as she reflects on the year. Schafer serves as co-executive producer on the second special episode, which she co-wrote with Levinson. Both special episodes were produced under COVID-19 guidelines.

Season 2 of EUPHORIA premiered on Sunday, January 9, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT on HBO. In the season opener, "Trying to Get to Heaven Before They Close the Door," Rue and Jules cross paths for the first time since Christmas as East Highland rings in the new year.
