HBO’s “Euphoria” special centered on Jules will launch early on HBO Max ahead of its linear premiere this Sunday.
The episode, titled “F*ck Anyone Who’s Not A Sea Blob,” will debut on the WarnerMedia-owned streaming service Friday at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 PT. It will then air Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
This episode is “Euphoria’s” second special, following Dec. 6’s “Trouble Don’t Last Always,” which focused on Zendaya’s Rue at Christmastime. That special also premiered two days early on HBO Max before airing on HBO.
“Euphoria’s” Jules special was directed by series creator Sam Levinson. The episode follows Jules (played by Hunter Schafer) over the Christmas holiday as she reflects on the year.

Other executive producers include Kevin Turen, Ravi Nandan, Zendaya, Drake, Future the Prince, Hadas Mozes Lichtenstein, Ron Leshem, Daphna Levin, Tmira Yardeni, Mirit Toovi, Yoram Mokady and Gary Lennon. Will Greenfield serves as a co-executive producer.
The series is produced in partnership with A24 and based on the Israeli series of the same name, which was created by Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin, from HOT.
