The second edition of the HBO-hit series ‘Euphoria’ arrives early on HBO Max on January 22 as we gear up for an official airing on HBO on January 24. This time, the special episode focuses entirely on Jules (Hunter Schafer), last seen bidding Rue (Zendaya) a goodbye at a Railway station in the Season 1 final episode. Like December’s hour-long special centered on Zendaya’s character in consequence of her relapse, this episode will also take place over the Christmas holiday, with Jules taking a flashback on her year.
The new “Euphoria” episode will be riding on higher-expectations after the show’s strong performance at the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards. Sam Levinson’s high school drama took home three of the night’s awards. The series’ notables Emmy win was for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, which made Zendaya the youngest Emmy winner in history for the above-mentioned category. “Euphoria” also won Emmys for excellent Contemporary Makeup and Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.
The shortened second season of the HBO hit hasn’t begun the shooting phase yet, as widespread pandemic COVID-19 continues to keep productions delayed. Levinson and the cast were originally slated to begin filming Season 2 back in March, just before Hollywood’s closedown.
The show’s eight-episode first season wrapped over a year ago, on August 4, 2019.
