HBO’s dark, drug-fuelled teen drama Euphoria has been renewed for a second season and will return next year.

Starring Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Zendaya, the series has been drawing widespread acclaim for its frank depiction of adolescent life and addiction – but that’s not the only reason to tune in.

The first season made headlines after featuring more than 30m penises in the first episode and received critical acclaim for its depiction of queer characters.

And now, HBO have confirmed the series will return next year after tweeting a series of small trailers about what’s to come in 2020.

The official Twitter account of the channel tweeted: “My favorite thing to do in the world is watch great TV. But watching hype sizzle reels is a close second.

“See what’s available to stream now and what’s coming in 2020.”

The series also introduced us to our new crush,Jacob Elordi, an Australian up-and-comer who plays Nate Jacobs, the archetypal douchebag jock whose anger masks insecurities with his sexuality.

Jacob has quickly been making a name for himself since starring in Netflix rom-com The Kissing Booth last year – something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by the good people at Calvin Klein, who’ve wasted no time making him one of the new faces of CK underwear. A-men.
