Actor Kelvin Harrison Jr. has confirmed that he will appear in the second season of HBO‘s Euphoria. Harrison Jr. made the news public during an interview with Complex earlier this week.
“I wasn’t talking about it for a while but we’re in Quarantine YOLO. Yes, I’m doing Euphoria. I’m excited,” he said.

“You know, right before quarantine we were about to start our first day, and then we got locked down, but the camera tests were sick, the fittings were sick, the table reads have been amazing. The scripts are so great and everyone is really excited for it. [Sam Levinson is] a great writer and a brilliant storyteller, and the aesthetic and world-building they do in that show is so unique and he really pushes boundaries, as well. So I’m excited to step into that space and do my part,” he added.
Harrison Jr. is coming of an incredible run over the past year that includes critically acclaimed roles in Netflix‘s The Godfather of Harlem, Luce and A24’s Waves. Just yesterday, A24 agreed to a deal in which they will executive produce all HBO projects the Safdie brothers bring to the premium network. With A24 behind yesterday’s deal, Waves and Euphoria, who knows? Maybe, we’ll see Harrison in more HBO series in the near future.
