Drama is back when you watch Euphoria season 2 online with HBO Max, and we at Tom's Guide have tonight blocked out for this appointment-television. Oh, and we just saw that Righteous Gemstones comes back right after!

We last saw Rue (Zendaya) and Jules (Hunter Schafer) reconnect for a brief bit in the Euphoria special episode "F*** Anyone Who's Not a Sea Blob," but it didn't portend to a strong new season for their relationship.

Update (Feb. 27): How to watch the Euphoria season 2 finale

Euphoria season 2 release time and date

Date: Euphoria season 2 episode 1 airs tonight (January 9).
Time: 9 p.m. ET/PT
U.S.: Watch on HBO Max
Watch on Sky Atlantic
Watch on Crave

The new season looks especially troubling for Rue, as the trailer has shown her back in the thick of things. Word is she has a new dealer, and possibly even a whole suitcase full of drugs (which she may have wheeled into an NA session). We're hoping Ali (Colman Domingo) is there for her. 

Rue's relationship with Jules has been fractured ever since the two parted ways at the train station. Some read that scene as Jules leaving Rue, but the latter was the one who decided not to get on board. Jules' season looks to be about far more than Rue, though, as the aforementioned between-seasons episode revealed that Jules was considering detransitioning — halting her planned gender transition.

Sydney Sweeney's been talkative to the press about how she's got a truly scandalous season afoot. She told Stylecaster "I can tease that, when you ask about season 2, my heart drops. In a you-guys-have-no-idea-what-you're-going-to-watch way. Cassie really needs to get her shit together. I can't say anything else. Cassie has a crazy storyline in season 2 that I did not expect."

We're also very keen on learning what's happening with Kat this season. Here's a Euphoria season 2 trailer!

HBO Max is available on most of the best streaming devices, including Roku. Speaking of which, there's a new Roku upgrade directed at cord-cutters.

HBO Max 

HBO Max is our favorite streaming service for its vast, high-quality library, including all of HBO’s prestige series like Game of Thrones and Succession. They also offer recent hit movies like The Matrix 4, classic series like Friends and their own originals like And Just Like That. HBO Max costs $15 per month (or $10 with ads).

In other streaming news, the first big canceled show of 2022 got the axe from Prime Video. While it didn't get raves, that dramatic teen series had a lot of hype behind it.
