Riding the momentum of a cool haul of three Emmy Awards earlier this year, including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Zendaya, HBO's hit show 'Euphoria' will air two new episodes starting on Dec. 6.

Zendaya, who stars as Rue Bennett, a high schooler battling drug addiction based on creator Sam Levinson's personal struggles, shared the good news with her nearly 80 million Instagram followers.

"We really missed them," she wrote, referring to Rue's friends and peers like Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer), Maddy Perez (Alexa Demie) and Frezco (Angus Cloud). "Two special Euphoria episodes coming soon. First one December 6th on @hbo."

Executive producer Drake echoed the 24-year-old actress and artist, uploading the same image and a roughly identical caption.  

Details are limited but HBO set the stage for the episodes, filmed during the COVID-19 pandemic, via a press release. "In the aftermath of being left by Jules at the train station and relapsing, the first special episode follows Rue as she celebrates Christmas," it reads.

"Written and directed by series creator Sam Levinson, the episode, titled 'Trouble Don't Last Always,' also stars Colman Domingo, who appeared in season one. The title and date of the second episode are forthcoming."

Drizzy also made headlines when Chart Data announced that "God's Plan" is the most-streamed song in U.S. Apple Music history. "Sicko Mode" with him and Travis Scott is the runner-up, and "Nice For What" owns the No. 9 spot. Talk about running up the score!
