HBO’s new drama, Euphoria was all the media could talk about last Summer. In fact, the first season didn’t even finish airing before Season 2 was announced. Fans really connected to the real and raw themes explored in the show. Euphoria deals with complex issues like addiction, gender, sexuality, and sexual orientation in a way that is compelling and palatable. Furthermore, the show acted as a catalyst for fans to have difficult conversations with their peers and loved ones.
Zendaya reflects on her Euphoria experience
Leading the show is former Disney darling, Zendaya. The 23-year-old stole hearts as Rue, the loveable drug addict who is fresh from rehab and determined to stay addicted. The Shake It Up alum feels incredibly grateful to be a part of Euphoria. She has been candid about the fact that she harasses the show’s creator, Sam Levinson, daily about Season 2. “I just feel very lucky. That’s really all I always kinda say. I just feel lucky to be able to tell Rue’s story and Sam’s story and yeah I don’t know. It just felt like something special as I was doing it and I’m just grateful that people have been able to connect to it the way they have,” Zendaya shared about her Euphoria experience in a recent red carpet interview with ET Online.
