As the drama heats up onscreen for HBO’s hit series “Euphoria,” it seems the same can be said for the offscreen drama.
Another new episode of “Euphoria” premiered last night, and as usual, eagle-eyed fans took to social media with their predictions and theories for upcoming episodes.
There are many storylines in season two that have yet to be addressed, including the complicated relationship between Nate and Jules that was first introduced in season one.
Fans were quick to speculate that viewers may never get a resolution between Nate and Jules, as Jacob Elordi and Hunter Schafer reportedly refused to film scenes together for season two.
Jacob Elordi and Hunter Schafer reportedly have dramas and don’t get along.
It’s speculated that the two, who had a close friendship while filming the first season of “Euphoria,” got into a fight and didn’t want to film together in season two.
Jacob Elordi and Hunter Schafer unsubscribed on social media.
According to a Reddit posta fan has shared his theory that Schafer and Elordi may no longer love each other.
The two actors often showered each other with praise on social media, liked and commented on each other’s posts, and even went to events together.
“Jacob [would] talk about how his favorite person in the cast was Hunter and that they would talk four hours on set and hold each other,” the Reddit user wrote.
“Jacob even did [two] posts on IG ([they were] deleted in mid-October suddenly lol).”
“[One] photo where he was holding Hunter’s hand and looking at each other, and another post where they were filming the RAVE scene from episode 7 and they were looking at each other and even Hunter commented on the post hearts and flower emojis.
However, all of their interactions stopped in October 2019, around the time Zendaya and Elordi were repeatedly photographed, sparking rumors that the two were dating.
According to the Reddit post, it was around the same time that Schafer and Elordi stopped liking each other’s Instagram posts, sparking fan theories that something must have happened between the actors. , causing tension on the set of “Euphoria”.
Schafer eventually ditched Elordi on Instagram in 2021, further fueling rumors that the two were no longer on good terms.
Sources say Sam Levinson changed the script so Hunter Schafer and Jacob Elordi didn’t have to film together.
Apparently, ever since Elordi and Schafer got along, “Euphoria” director and screenwriter Sam Levinson rewritten and replaced Sydney Sweeney’s character, Cassie, in a storyline that was originally meant to feature Jules and Nate.
This left many fans unhappy given that Levinson introduced a complex relationship between Nate and Jules that many hoped would be expanded upon and explained in the new season.
However, at the start of Schafer and Dominic Fike sparking dating rumours, Two Me celebrity gossip account posted that Dominic and Schafer were “kissing” and “dancing” at a restaurant alongside their co-stars Alexa Demie and Jacob Elordi.
Similarly, Elordi and Schafer were seen interacting when season two premiered, so it’s possible the rumors were just rumors.
Sam Levinson has been heavily criticized for writing off characters.
The backlash against Jules/Nate’s lack of a storyline comes after fans have already criticized the show’s creator for not keeping up with the other storylines of the first season.
Many shared their frustration that Kat Hernadez, who is played by Barbie Ferreira, and Chris McKay, who is played by Algee Smith, apparently don’t get as much screen time as they did in season one.
Ferreira and Levinson reportedly had disagreements while filming season two, prompting Levinson to write Ferreira’s character over numerous episodes, while Smith revealed that he hadn’t spoken to Levinson about the role his character will play in the upcoming season.
