- Nika King as Leslie Bennett, Rue’s mother
- Storm Reid as Gia, Rue’s sister

Euphoria Season 2 Expected Plot
The first season was one heck of a roller coaster of emotions. We see Rue and Jules having their “Thelma and Louise” moment. However, Rue backs out as she decides not to leave her family. Living in the dark shadow of her father’s death, Rue relapses with a Labrinth and Zendaya song playing in the background. In Euphoria Season 2, we expect to see Rue winning her battle with addiction. The series will focus a bit more on the life of the titular character. If Rue becomes sober, she will have better communication with Jules and give a second chance to their friendship at least.
