HBO has renewed their hit teen drama, “Euphoria,” for a second season.
Zendaya stars in the series which offers a raw, unsettling and at times, downright disturbing look at life for a group of high school students as they grapple with issues of drugs, sex, and violence.
Creator Sam Levinson told the Hollywood Reporter:
I just feel like there is such a disconnect between what young people are going through and what everyone else thinks they’re going through.
We didn’t want to pull any punches. We didn’t want to make it feel like we were holding anything back or that we are hiding anything.
There are absolutely no lies detected in Sam’s statement.
In the series, Zendaya plays Rue, a 17-year-old addict fresh out of rehab. She befriends a new trans girl at her school, Jules (Hunter Schafer), and the two quickly develop an inseparable bond as the navigate the pressures of modern teen life.
