Euphoria’s special episodes have been and gone meaning fans have been left waiting for a release date for Euphoria season 2.

HBO’s Euphoria has taken the TV world by storm since it first arrived on our screens in June 2019 and it wasn’t long before the hit series was renewed for a second season.

However, before season 2 was due to release, fans were slated to receive a pair of special episodes which aired on HBO in December 2020 and January 2021.

Those special episodes have now been and gone, though, leaving fans to ponder the release date for Euphoria season 2.

Euphoria on HBO

Season 1 of Euphoria arrived on HBO back in June 2019 and it was announced only a month later that season 2 had been confirmed.

After two Emmy wins in September 2020, Euphoria returned to our screens in December 2020, but not for season 2.

Instead, fans were treated to a pair of special episodes, focusing on the troubled relationship between Rue and Jules, acting as a bridge between the first and second seasons.

  • The release date for Euphoria season 2 has not yet been announced.

Despite being renewed for season 2 in July 2019, the next full instalment of Euphoria looks set to be a while away yet courtesy of Covid-19-related production delays.

However, comments from Euphoria creator Sam Levinson have offered fans a ray of hope.

Euphoria creator offers update on season 2

Speaking to IndieWire’s Filmmaker Toolkit podcast, Euphoria creator Sam Levinson revealed that filming for season 2 is set to begin in late March 2021 and that “the goal is to release episodes this year [2021].”

Filming on season 2 was originally scheduled to start shooting in March 2020 but the emerging Covid-19 pandemic put an end to those plans.

Instead, Euphoria’s creator teamed up with actress Zendaya once again for the upcoming Netflix film Malcolm & Marie, which was filmed entirely during the pandemic and resulting lockdowns.

Euphoria season 1 and the special episodes are available to stream on HBO Max in the US and Now TV here in the UK.
