HBO Sets Premiere Date for First ‘Euphoria’ Special Episode

HBO Sets Premiere Date for First ‘Euphoria’ Special Episode

“Euphoria” fans will have to wait well into next year for season 2, but in the meantime, HBO has officially confirmed two special episodes of the popular teen drama.

The first is set to air Sunday, Dec. 6 on the premium cabler, before heading to stream on HBO Max. Both episodes were produced under COVID-19 guidelines, according to sources.

Titled “Trouble Don’t Last Always,” the first episode will find Rue (Zendaya) in the aftermath of being left by Jules (Hunter Schafer) at the train station and relapsing. The episode, written and helmed by series creator Sam Levinson, follows Rue as she celebrates Christmas. HBO will reveal the title, plot and date for the second episode at a later date.

News of the specials comes almost exactly a month after Zendaya wowed the TV world with her stunning Emmys win. She will be joined in the first special by Colman Domingo, reprising his role as recovering addict Ali from season 1.

Zendaya confirmed the news via social media, tweeting, “We really missed them. Two special ‘Euphoria episodes coming soon.”

Alongside Levinson, “Euphoria” is executive produced by Ravi Nandan, Kevin Turen, Drake, Future the Prince, Hadas Mozes Lichtenstein, Ron Leshem, Daphna Levin, Tmira Yardeni, Mirit Toovi, Yoram Mokady and Gary Lennon. Will Greenfield serves as a co-executive producer.

The show is produced in partnership with A24 and based on the Israeli series of the same name, which was created by Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin, from Hot. It was nominated for six Emmys total, carrying home three statuettes during the virtual ceremony back in Sept. Other than Zendaya’s performance, “Euphoria” also won for contemporary makeup and original music and lyrics.


Jacob Elordi Shares the Challenge of Playing a Real Person in ‘2 Hearts’

Jacob Elordi Shares the Challenge of Playing a Real Person in ‘2 Hearts’

An important role. Jacob Elordi found a new challenge when he landed the leading part in the upcoming film 2 Hearts, which is based on the true story of college student Christopher Gregory.

“When I came on board, I met his family — they’re really wonderful family, and the movie was a real family affair,” the Euphoria star told Us Weekly exclusively. “It was a super personal story to them. I met Chris Gregory’s parents and we had some really wonderful experiences. It ended up being a bit of a journey in itself.”

The film is based on Gregory’s father Eric’s 2017 book, All My Tomorrows: A Story of Tragedy, Transplant and Hope. Chris tragically died at the age of 19 after suffering a brain aneurysm. He then donated his organs to five different people, including Jorge Bacardi of the Bacardi Rum dynasty. The film chronicles Chris’ love story with Sam (Tiera Skovbye) before detailing another love story happening in the same time frame — Jorge (Adan Canto) falling for Leslie (Radha Mitchell).

“I tried to do as much research as I could,” the Kissing Booth actor told Us. “We actually filmed quite a large portion of the film before I met his parents. I met them in Hawaii, and by that point, we had shot a bulk of the movie.”

Upon meeting, Eric told Elordi that his son “reminded him of Steve McQueen,” something that threw the actor off.

“I just thought, like, ‘F–k. I’ve f–ked the whole thing,’ because I did not nearly do Steve McQueen, whatsoever,” the Australia native said with a laugh. “But, I think he was happy with it. I hope so. I want to bring him pride and a lot of love to their family.”

Although this movie filmed years ago — it was the first role Elordi landed after 2018’s The Kissing Booth — the actor shared with Us that he’s not picky about what types of scripts he’s drawn to.

“I don’t think too much in that regard. Because, you know, I could make any movie anytime if I found that script appealing,” he said. “I just want to be part of real human stories — conversational kind of pieces with real characters with real flaws who have real conversations.”
