Hunter Schafer plays Jules, Rue’s best friend. Euphoria was Schafer’s first actor, although she also co-wrote an episode.

Where can I watch the Euphoria Series 2 trailer?

You can find the Euphoria trailer below. In it, you can see the various characters going through their lives, as Zendaya narrates and hints at some difficult events to come.

What happened in the Euphoria 2020 specials?

The filming of Season 2 of Euphoria has been disrupted by the pandemic, which means it has been significantly delayed since its scheduled air date.

To make that expectation a little less harsh, two Euphoria specials came out in late 2020 – both were small, character-driven plays, each featuring just two actors.

The first saw Rue (Zendaya) talking to her sponsor about AA, while the second saw Jules (Hunter Schafer) talking to his therapist.

They’re each about thinking about the season one finale, and while they’re both important in terms of character development and themes, if you’re only interested in certain storylines, you can probably skip them.
