She explained: “We might end up doing a little bridge episode. An episode that we can do with a limited amount of people in a safer environment that can give people something
“We also miss Euphoria as the people who create it, too – and give everyone who loves the show a little something so we have something to live on until we are able to go into season two.”

What is Euphoria about?
Series one follows the life of a 17-year-old drug-addict named Rue Bennett.
It documents her experience at a rehab facility, but at the end of season one, Rue suffered a relapse after using cocaine when her girlfriend Jules left her.
The synopsis for the first of the bridge episodes reads: “In the aftermath of being left by Jules at the train station and relapsing, the first special episode follows Rue as she celebrates Christmas.”
A teaser for the episode sees Rue contemplating her life in a diner, where she runs into Ali – a man she met at a Narcotics Anonymous meeting in season one.
