The second part of the special Euphoria episodes now has a premiere date!
It was just announced that part two will center on Jules, and it was co-written and co-produced by Hunter Schafer herself.
“F*ck Anyone Who’s Not A Sea Blob,” follows Jules (Schafer) over the Christmas holiday as she reflects on the year.
Series creator Sam Levinson, who directed and co-wrote the episode, recently opened up about working with Hunter on part two.
“I’ve been writing a movie with Hunter, which I’m very excited about, so we talk pretty often. And I called her up to get her thoughts on this episode,” he told GQ. “Several hours later, we were talking and she said something that was based on a poem she had written when she was sixteen about the ocean and its femininity and strength. And I said, ‘Well, this ought to be actual dialogue. Do you want to just write this thing together?’ Four days later, we had a draft of the episode that we co-wrote.”
“I always imagined these episodes as a two-part piece focusing on Rue and Jules separately. And there was some point in time in which I read that the character of Jules was trending on Twitter because people were debating whether she was a villain or not,” Sam added. “The idea that people could watch the show and walk away feeling that she was a villain was so appalling to me that I thought, ‘I’m gonna write an episode that forces the audience to look at the world through her eyes and understand the burden of loving an addict.’”
Euphoria part two will premiere on HBO and HBO Max on January 24th. If it’s like part one, it might come out a couple of days early on HBO Max!
