HBO: Zendaya and Hunter Schafer discuss Euphoria
HBO drama Euphoria proved to be a huge hit both critically and with audiences when it launched in 2019. Season two was given the green light by the American broadcaster but the series is still a way off. But the writers have devised two specials to temporarily sate fans until the show comes back. Express.co.uk has the lowdown on the Euphoria special episodes and when they will be on television.

HBO previously announced the two-part special with the first half focusing on Rue Bennett (played by Zendaya).
The first of the two specials titled Trouble Don’t Last Always has now arrived of HBO Max and will be airing on HBO in America on December 6 at 9pm EST (Eastern Standard Time).
HBO Max released the episode on December 4 at midnight in the USA.
Trouble Don’t Last Always is expected to be airing on Sky Atlantic next week following its HBO premiere.

Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in Britain will be simulcasting the episode, which means it will be airing on Monday, December 7 at 2am GMT.
For those who were unable to stay up, Sky Atlantic will be repeating the special at 9pm on the same day.
The episode will also be available to stream on NOW TV, which means subscribers can watch it on catch up once it’s initially aired the first time.
So far, there’s been no release date for the second half of the special but Express.co.uk will update this article when more information is available.
However, it’s highly likely to be made available to HBO Max subscribers ahead of its broadcast on the regular channel.
Again, the special will be aired in the UK on Sky Atlantic at the same time as in America.
The first half of the special picks up with Rue as she meets with her sobriety sponsor Ali (Colman Domingo) in a diner.
She will still be reeling from the events at the end of season one which saw Rue teetering on the brink of death after suffering an overdose follow Jules Vaughan’s (Hunter Schafer) exit from town.
Rue and Ali meet on Christmas Eve to discuss addiction while the teen is still high and fantasising about a life with Jules.

Presumably, the second half will pick up with Jules as viewers find out where she went and whether she is going to be coming back.
The two Euphoria specials were written and shot by creator Sam Levinson, who devised the story during the coronavirus pandemic and after he’d already decided the story arcs for the second season.
Despite the filming challenges, the special adhered to social distancing guidelines and other pandemic protocols.
These specials come after lead star Zendaya won an Emmy Award for her role in the category of Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
Her victory made her the youngest actress in the category to do so aged 24.
As part of her winner’s speech, the elated actress – who was surrounded by her family and team – said: “I know this feels like a really weird time to be celebrating.
“But I just want to say there is hope in the young people out there – I know that our TV show doesn’t always feel like a great example of that – but there is hope in our young people and I just want to say to all my peers out there doing the work in the streets, ‘I see you, I admire you, I thank you.'”
Zendaya also thanked Euphoria creator Levinson, saying she hoped she could still do his story proud going forward.
