HBO and Zendaya teased the special episodes in October, with the HBO president. Casey Bloys saying that a “special COVID episode” would air at some point, and Zendaya added, “We could end up doing a little bridge episode. I don’t really know how to describe it, but an episode that we can do with a limited number of people in a safer environment… so we have something to live on until we get into season 2. But since then, the special episode morphed into two. The COVID episode is yet to come; A date has not been announced yet, but it will arrive before season 2 of the show.
Euphoria follows “a group of high school students as they navigate love and friendships in a world of drugs, sex, trauma and social media,” and was an adaptation of the Israeli show of the same name. The American version was created by Sam Levinson, who also wrote all the episodes of the first season as well as this new special. There is no release date for season 2 yet, but at least fans will have these two specials to hold onto.
