The first of the two specials, Part One: Rue, officially titled Trouble Don’t Last Always, was released in December and centred on Zendaya’s character.

The second instalment, Part Two: Jules, or [Expletive] Anyone Who’s Not A Sea Blob, will focus on what Jules has been up to over the holidays – and judging by the trailer, which you can watch above, it looks like it’s going to be another emotional watch.
Will there still be a season two of Euphoria?
Yes! A full second season of the hit Gen Z drama is expected later in the year. The special episodes focusing on Rue and Jules are just serving as bridges between seasons one and two of the show while the COVID-19 pandemic makes filming a whole eight-episode season difficult.
