Euphoria fans are in for a treat. The HBO series is set to air two special episodes starting in December. It is not yet known if the episodes will count as part of the second season order but are intended to create a bridge between the first and second seasons. The first episode will air on December 6th while an air date has not been announced for the second special episode.
Zendaya, Hunter Schafer, Jacob Elordi, Alexa Demie, Algee Smith, Sydney Sweeney, Maude Apatow, Barbie Ferreira, Angus Cloud, Storm Reid, Nika King, and Eric Dane star in this drama. The series follows a group of high school students as they deal with the events of their lives. The special episode will focus on how Rue (Zendaya) celebrates Christmas following the events in the first season.
Season one of Euphoria aired in Summer 2019, and the series was renewed for a second season in July 2019.
