For those living under a rock, Euphoria is a pretty big deal for HBO. The first season was a smash, winning Zendaya an Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama Series, while the filming of the second season for creator Sam Levinson and company has been delayed by COVID-19. Not one to let Coronavirus and the pandemic keep his creative juices from flowing, Levinson not only created a film for Netflix with Zendaya called Malcolm & Marie, he followed strict protocol to shoot a special episode of Euphoria. Designed to bridge the gap between seasons, it’s a stripped down two part episode, with the first already having aired. Now, we got a Trailer today for the second part.
Part Two will follow Jules, after the first part followed Rue. For those not in the know, this is how the first season is described on Rotten Tomatoes: “The drama series follows the life of a group of teenagers dealing with sex, parties and drug abuse. Rue (Zendaya) has come out of rehab but has no plans to remain clean, Jules (Hunter Schafer) is a transgender girl who has hard time trying to fit in, Nate (Jacob Elordi) struggles with sexual insecurities, Chris (Algee Smith) is having trouble adjusting to college life, Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) can’t seem to escape her past, and Kat (Barbie Ferreira) is trying to explore her sexuality. In Season 1, the kids go through many challenging events, but despite the difficulties they learn to deal with what life throws at them.” For the prior special episode, this was the description, also from RT: “Rue celebrates Christmas in the aftermath of being left by Jules at the train station and relapsing in the first of two special episodes.”
Here is the Trailer for the second part of this special Euphoria episode:
