The actor says her character ‘definitely goes through the wringer again’
As well as ruining everyone’s personal lives in 2020, the coronavirus pandemic has destroyed our fave TV shows. Namely: Euphoria, which was set to start filming in March, before it was halted due to lockdown.
Although a “special COVID episode” is in the works, fans of the HBO series are still desperate to find out what will happen in season two. Now, Sydney Sweeney, who plays Cassie Howard in the show, has given an update on what to expect for her character when Euphoria finally returns to our screens (TBC on when this will be).
In season one, Cassie ended the series by having an abortion. In April, Sweeney revealed that season two will be even “darker” than the first, with characters facing more “intense situations”.
Speaking to NME yesterday (October 14), Sweeney said: “I can’t really talk about any of the scripts, but they’re amazing. “Cassie definitely goes through the wringer again. I know what happens (to her) but I don’t want to give it away.”
Discussing the season two delay, she added: “We had to halt, of course, just to make sure that everyone could be safe. As soon as it’s safe for us to film Euphoria with the whole Euphoria grandness that comes with it… we’re waiting to make sure we can do that in a safe manner.”
