‘Euphoria’ Season 2: HBO announces Christmas special for December

The beloved HBO fan-favorite is getting two special episodes to bridge the gap between the freshman outing and Euphoria Season 2.

Euphoria had a stellar first season run on HBO last year and quickly became one of the biggest hit amongst teens and adults for the network during recent years. The show was received with an outpouring amount of love from fans and critics alike.

Euphoria Season 2 was one of the most anticipated shows slated to return in 2020 but due to COVID-19, the show had to shut down production just days after starting prep for the season.

Fans who have been waiting for so long finally got something to be excited over last month when Zendaya appeared on Jimmy Kimmel and announced that they didn’t want to make fans wait any longer than they have to and for that, they would probably end up doing a bridge episode with a limited number of people in a safe environment so that fans can have a little something to go on as they patiently wait for Euphoria Season 2.

Euphoria Season 2 Special: Hunter Schafer to return alongside Zendaya for both the episodes.

And, now that maybe has become a reality as HBO has just announced that Euphoria will return for not one but two special episodes that are intended to bridge the gap between the seasons, the first of which titled “Trouble Don’t Last Always”, is written and directed by series creator Sam Levinson and will air on Sunday, December 6.

There are more reasons to get in the holiday spirit for the fans as this is a Christmas episode and we’ll get to see Zendaya’s Rue celebrating Christmas.

Zendaya shared her excitement on her social media and also confirmed Hunter Schafer‘s involvement with a stunning first look promo image. The episode will also include Colman Domingo’s Ali.

The second episode does not have an airdate as of yet but we can expect it to drop soon afterward as well.

Euphoria was nominated for six primetime Emmys, and also deservingly managed to win three of them as Zendaya made history by becoming the youngest actress to ever win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. The other two wins of the show were for Outstanding Contemporary Makeup and Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for Labrinth.

“When will we get the proper Euphoria Season 2?” is still up in the air but as of last month the production was trying to figure out ways to create a season 2 that the cast and crew were all proud of while also taking everybody’s safety into account.

With production for all the major shows finally starting back up again, there’s a more than good enough reason to believe that we will be getting Euphoria Season 2 sooner than we think. And for now, we just can’t wait to watch the special episodes.
