Kelvin Harrison Jr. will no more appear at Euphoria season 2. One year ago, it was declared that he’d taken on a role for its Zendaya-starring HBO series, which is executive produced by Drake. Euphoria was revived for another season in July 2019, before the first had ended.
Euphoria follows the exploits of Rue Bennett (Zendaya), a drug-addicted 17-year-old attempting to keep herself clean whilst managing the rigors of high school existence. Meanwhile, her friends deal with their issues, which mostly comprise matters of identity. It’s a series which has a lot of shocking moments relating to injury and life as a teenager, and with powerful performances from Zendaya and the remainder of the cast, it has garnered a big fanbase. Filming for Euphoria season 2 was supposed to commence last year, but on account of the COVID-19 pandemic, production was postponed. Currently, Euphoria will be headed into production, but Harrison is not involved with this series.
Harrison revealed that, due to scheduling conflicts, he will not look in Euphoria season 2. Right now, there is no word on how the creatives behind Euphoria will manage Harrison’s departure.
There are very little known about Harrison’s personality now, and that’s just one of many questions lovers have going into season 2. While there are not additional details concerning this evolution, it’s understood that Harrison will likely be emerging in Baz Luhrmann’s forthcoming Elvis Presley biopic. Considering that particular film is currently in production, there is an opportunity it was one of the jobs which conflicted with filming for Euphoria. It’s also possible that Harrison considered the Elvis film or some other projects he’s working on to be lucrative, so he chose to depart Euphoria instead of jeopardize those opportunities.
It is unclear how central Harrison’s personality was to Euphoria season 2, but by the looks of things, Harrison’s departure leaves producers with two options: recast the role or make a new personality. Because his character was not introduced in Euphoria season 1, there’s a good chance his role does not have anything to do with all the events that have transpired up to the point, so they can most likely be flexible. Depending on when filming for Euphoria season 2 begins, HBO might soon be announcing a brand new actor to take over Harrison’s role.
