Ahead of its second season, which got delayed due to COVID-19, HBO has officially announced that there will be two special episodes of Euphoria to hold viewers over.
Here’s the description: In the aftermath of being left by Jules at the train station and relapsing, the first special episode follows Rue (played by Emmy®-winner Zendaya) as she celebrates Christmas. Written and directed by series creator Sam Levinson, the episode, titled “Trouble Don’t Last Always,” also stars Colman Domingo. The episode airs on December 6 at 9 p.m.
The network states that the title and date of the second episode will be announced at a later date. Both of the episodes were produced under COVID-19 guidelines.
In a prior interview with ET Online, the actress said, “All I can really say is that season 2 won’t happen for a while, but we do have a couple bridge episodes that we’re shooting currently that aren’t really part of season 1 or season 2 but kind of give people a little something different with Euphoria to hold us over a little bit until we’re able to do a full season 2,” she said. “But I’m very happy with the work that we’re doing so far, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it, really.”
Zendaya’s won the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, making her the youngest actress ever to nab the prize.
