HBO’s Euphoria provides some happy news for its fanbase with the news it will air two bridge episodes to close the gap between season one and season two, whose filming was upended by COVID-19. The first episode will air on December 6, 2020 with timing for the second not yet provided.
Euphoria star Zendaya, who is fresh off of winning an Emmy Award for her role as Rue in the series, confirmed the announcement on Instagram where she wrote, “We really missed them.”
The first episode is titled “Trouble Don’t Last Always” and picks up in the aftermath of Rue (Zendaya) choosing not to join Jules (Hunter Schafer) on a train trip, after which she suffers a relapse.
Written, directed by series creator Sam Levinson, the episode will follow Rue as she celebrates Christmas and will include the return of Ali (Colman Domingo) who will reprise his role as Rue’s non-nonsense Narcotics Anonymous mentor.
Filming on season two is not slated to begin until spring 2021.
