A Euphoria two-episode special is dropping in time for Christmas

Glitter at the ready, Euphoria fans

The holidays are coming up and this year, Santa is making your wishes come true with two special episodes of Euphoria for your stockings – and of them one is Christmas-themed.

Back in March, production on the HBO show was forced to halt amid pandemic restrictions which pushed back airing dates for the second season until next year. To tide us all over, two special episodes bridging the first and second seasons will be released, the first of which is dropping Sunday December 6.

Titled “Trouble Don’t Last Always”, the episode will pick up with the aftermath of the season finale which saw (spoiler!) Zendaya’s Rue being left by Jules (Hunter Schafer) at the train station and relapsing. The action will follow Rue as she celebrates Christmas.

Zendaya broke the news last night with an Instagram announcement, writing “We really missed them,”  alongside a photograph of Rue reflected in the eye of Jules.

The title and date of the second episode are forthcoming. Filming for season two is scheduled to restart in early 2021.

Anticipation and expectations are high for the new offerings of the show, after Zendaya made history last month as the youngest-ever Emmy winner for Best Lead Actress in a Drama for her role as Rue, with Euphoria also taking home the awards for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics and an extremely well-deserved Outstanding Contemporary Makeup.

Last week, Sydney Sweeney, who plays Cassie Howard on the show, shared an update on what fans can expect for her character when Euphoria finally returns revealing that Cassie “definitely goes through the wringer again.”

The news that Zendaya will back on our screens comes at a welcome time following the announcement that another of her projects, Denis Villeneuve’s Dune which also stars Timothée Chalamet, has had its release date pushed back to next year. The upcoming adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel was originally scheduled for December 18 this year but is now scheduled for October 2021.
