HBO

The newest member to join your favorite hit television series is bursting at the seams over the second season.

The making of the second season of teen drama series Euphoria was brought to a halt due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. More discouraging, there’s yet to be an announced date of when it will make its HBO debut. On the flip side, new cast member, Kelvin Harrison Jr., eagerly drops hints regarding the season and his new character on Complex’s pop culture podcast, Watch Less.

Right before quarantine we were about to start our first day, and then we got locked down,” he explains, “But the camera tests were sick, the fittings were sick, the table reads have been amazing. The scripts are so great and everyone is really excited for it.” Enticing to say the least.

In 2019, the actor received critical acclaim for both of his breakout roles in Waves and Luce. These roles landed him nominations for BAFTA’s Rising Star and Independent Spirit’s Best Lead Male. The 25-year-old says “The scripts are so great and everyone is really excited for it. [Sam Levinson is] a great writer and a brilliant storyteller, and the aesthetic and world-building they do in that show are so unique and he really pushes boundaries, as well. So I’m excited to step into that space and do my part.” Anyone else feeling goosebumps?
