Two brand new episodes of hit US show ‘Euphoria’ will be released ahead of its second season.
Lead actress Zendaya confirmed on social media that the first episode is set to air December 6. The title and date of the second episode are forthcoming.
Written and directed by show creator Sam Levinson, the first episode, titled ‘Trouble Don’t Last Always,’ the first special episode follows Zendaya’s character Rue as she celebrates Christmas.
Both special episodes “were produced under COVID-19 guidelines,” according to HBO.
The wait for Season 2 is set to be a long one for fans. The show’s eight-episode first season wrapped its run over a year ago on August 4, 2019, but production for the next season was pushed back due to the pandemic. With a production start date being targeted for early 2021, ‘Euphoria’ is likely to be off the air for at least two years in between seasons.
The show earned Zendaya her first Emmy win for outstanding lead actress in a drama. It also won an Emmy for outstanding contemporary makeup (non-prosthetic) and another for original music and lyrics.
