The new season introduces Dominic Fike, Minka Kelly and Demetrius ‘Lil Meech’ Flenory Jr.

Season two will explore the fallout after Rue (Zendaya) and Jules (Schafer) broke up in the season one finale and as Rue goes through a drug relapse.

In the season two trailer, Rue dances around her house to the tune of Frank Sinatra’s ‘Call Me Irresponsible’, only for her younger sister (Reid) to ask if she’s high. There are also flashes of the high-school teens partying and getting into run-ins with the police.

“When you’re younger, everything feels so permanent. But as you get older, you begin to realise nothing is and everyone you love could drift away,” Rue says in the trailer.

New episodes of the series will air on HBO in the US and will also be available to watch on HBO Max.
