HBO Dropping 2 "Euphoria" Special Episodes Ahead of Season 2!
"Euphoria" Fans! Zendaya has confirmed that she
will be coming to save 2020 with not one, but two special episodes
to hold us over until filming for Season 2 can resume. Like many
other shows, "Euphoria" had to halt production for its
highly-anticipated second season due restrictions set by COVD-19.
Though HBO revealed these two extra installments are to bridge the
gap between the first and second seasons, they haven’t yet
said when we could expect the second season – but
there’s speculation the show will resume filming in early
The first episode will premiere December 6th, while the airdate for the second is still TBD. All we know so far is that the first episode, titled “Trouble Don’t Last Always”, will be a Christmas special! Colman Domingo, who plays Ali, a peer from Rue’s support group, is confirmed to star in the first episode and it will be interesting to see how his role plays out in the aftermath of Rue’s relapse. Hunter Schafer will be back for both episodes – because it wouldn’t be Rue without Jules, of course. We don’t know who from the remaining cast will make an appearance, as Zendaya described the specials as “an episode that we can do with a limited amount of people in a safer environment…” during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel this past summer. HBO’s Casey Bloys also revealed that COVID-19 will have a role in one of the episodes.
