'Euphoria' Is FINALLY Back This December And Here's What We Know So Far

Three-time Emmy winning show, "Euphoria," is a high school drama that revolves around the melodramatic life of drug addict Rue Bennet, portrayed by Zendaya Coleman.

Don't allow the over-the-top fashion and gem embellished makeup distract you from the portrayal of real-life issues such as substance abuse, mental illness, and violence. *Spoiler Alert* In the cliffhanger season one finale, Rue returns from a situation in emotional distress and relapses

Season two was originally scheduled to release in the summer of 2020, but filming was rescheduled due to social distancing guidelines. Zendaya disclosed to Variety, "We were supposed to go back to work, I believe, on March 16. And literally, three or four days before that, they were shut down. I was like, 'I was so close.' We did camera tests and hair and makeup tests, and we got to see everybody and we had the sets built."

One week ago, Zendaya make a special announcement on Instagram that excited Euphoria fans after a year's wait. She posted a close-up image of her reflection in Hunter Schaeffer's eye, and captioned it, "We really missed them. Two special episodes coming soon. First one December 6 on HBO."

Special COVID-19 Bridge Episodes

Since the season one finale was released more than one year ago in August 2019, two episodes are scheduled to bridge the gap in the plot and provide fans with a refresher before the highly anticipated release of season two in late 2021/early 2022. HBO's Casey Bloys calls the premiering episode a "special COVID episode," in his interview with Deadline.

The first episode titled "Trouble Don't Last Always" will premiere on December 6th, 2020. Unfortunately, HBO has not released any information regarding the second bridge episode as of now.

Here's What We Know About The Bridge Episodes

It has been confirmed by Sam Levinson, "Euphoria's" creator, that Rue did not die in her relapse from the finale. In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, he remarks, " I think that there's a lot more to delve into and unpack in terms of the effects of addiction on Rue and on her family and those around her. The possibilities are endless in many ways."

What is the Plot of Season Two?

In terms of the plot of "Euphoria" season two, details have not been shared with the public.

In an interview with Variety, Jacob Elordi said the show's creator Sam Levinson is "Changing scripts like a madman. I could tell you something now, and it would not be at all relevant to what I'm going to read when we go back. It's ever-changing, even up until the day that we're shooting."

Who Are The New Characters In Upcoming Episodes?

The season two casting call has revealed the new characters in the upcoming Euphoria episodes who go by the names Darian, Ray, Ami, and Serena.

When Is The Euphoria Season 2 Release Date?

Due to COVID-19, Euphoria's production was put on hold. It has been estimated that season two filming will resume in early 2021 and will premiere late 2021/early 2022.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
