Euphoria specials... The wait is over.

After part one (Rue) of Euphoria's special two-parter dropped in December 2019, the hit show is back with Jules, the second of its special episodes, which aired first in the US on HBO Max but has now made its way to the UK. 

Euphoria season two may be a while away but the special (not so) festive episodes are here to keep us going - bridging the gap between where we left off in season one and what we might expect next.

Euphoria: what to know?

The powerful, unsettling teen drama, which stars multi-talented Emmy-winner Zendaya as Rue Bennett, is all we've been talking about since it debuted in 2019. Not only has it brought a whole host of new talent to the eyes of Hollywood - including Hunter Schafer who plays Jules, Rue's love interest Alexa Demie, Barbie Ferreira and Sydney Sweeney to name a few - Euphoria has also inspired its very own beauty looks, with many imitating the bold, bright make-up seen on the show. 

But most of all, it's the complex storylines and portrayal of a Gen-Z, teen experience that resonates with viewers. The show covers a number of dark themes including drug addiction, trauma, friendships, love and the pressures of growing up in a digital age.

Part one - Trouble Don't Last Always - picks up with Rue after her relapse. She's contemplating her life in a diner when she runs into Ali (Colman Domingo), who she met at a Narcotics Anonymous meeting. 

Part two - Fuck Anyone Who's Not a Sea Blob - focuses on Jules going into therapy for the first time and confronting some uncomfortable truths.
