We just had a feeling this show would come around fast with its second season. Why is that? Well, we knew how eager Levenson and company were to keep the story of Rue and company going. Don’t forget that they managed, despite the pandemic, to create two EUPHORIA Specials after Season One’s conclusion in 2019. The first one “Trouble Don’t Last Always” aired December 20, 2020, and “F*ck Anyone Who’s Not A Sea Blob” aired January 24, 2021. The team must have kept production rolling, safely, to now complete and package Season Two.
