HBO Announces an Open Casting Call for New Characters for ‘Euphoria’ Season 2

No acting experience is necessary – one step closer to Zendaya.

After confirming the second season for hit TV series EuphoriaHBO and A24 have recently announced an open casting call for new characters for the upcoming season. The new speaking roles will reportedly be handled by Jessica Kelly, known for casting Precious, The Maze Runner and The Box, as well as Mary Vernieu who has worked on the films Looper, Silver Linings Playbook and Narc. 

According to the casting call, “You must be 18 and older and based anywhere in the United States. No acting experience is necessary. If chosen, this is a paid opportunity.” Interested parties for a role in the second season can now send a video audition to castingcall@JV8inc.com.

The following characters are up for grabs:

Darian: 18+ to play 17. Any ethnicity. An outsider. Sensitive. Vulnerable. Mischievious. Definitely not the cool kid at school but one of the more interesting kids. Could struggle with addiction.

Ray: 18+ to play 17. Any ethnicity. Attractive with an edge. Working class. Pure heart. Scrappy but a fighter. Not verbose or educated but has all the words he needs. Attractive in a real and accessible way. Might be going nowhere in life but has a smile so genuine it’s not depressing.

Ami: 18-20’s. Drug Addict. Stripper. Hates her boyfriend. Talks shit. Can’t read a room. Has a big mouth. Can make a bad situation worse.

Serena: 50’s+, Caucasian. Sassy and tough. A real character. The kind of women who partied her whole life and attended every White Snake concert and now she has several different hustles just to make a living.

Lita: Female 40s. Any ethnicity. A foster mom with bills to pay. Seems like an average, regular person but can be a ruthless businesswoman if you cross her. Recur.

Filming for Euphoria‘s second season begins in March and will receive eight new episodes starring Season 1’s original cast including Zendaya as Rue, Hunter Schafer as Jules, Alexa Demie as Maddy and Barbie Ferreira as Kat. Stay tuned while we wait for more information on the official release date.

In other news, Issa Rae has announced the premiere date of Insecure Season 4.
