Here’s Everything We Know About Drake and Zendaya’s New HBO Show ‘Euphoria’
Game of Thrones will be over before we know it, so luckily HBO already has some major summer plans on the horizon for their beloved viewers. In addition to the second season of Big Little Lies —Euphoria, produced by Drake (yes, that Drake) and starring Zendaya is also coming to the acclaimed network.
If you’ve been turning in to Season 8 of GoT which we’re sure you have –we’re confident that you’ve seen some deliciously epic promo for Euphoria –and now we’ve got even more details about what you can expect from your next favorite show.
What is Euphoria about?
We all know that Drake loves to adapt shows and put his stamp on them –just like he’s doing for Top Boy over at Netflix. HBO’s Euphoria is based on an Isreali show of the same name. However, instead of following the Mother of Dragons or the Monterey Five —Euphoria follows the lives of high schoolers.
Since Drake began his career as Aubrey Graham on the hit teen Canadian classic, Degrassi –we know that he knows all about that teen life, but Euphoria is going to be even edgier than Degrassi. The series follows some super popular teens and the storylines focus on sex, drugs, social media, and traumatic experiences. The trailer already has a ton of mystery in it. You can hear Zendaya’s character saying,
I promise you, if I could be a different person, I would. Not because I want it, but because they do. But here’s the thing: One day I just showed up without a map or a compass, and at some
pointyou have to make a choice — about who you are and what you want. And therein lies the catch.
Who stars in Euphoria?
In addition to the legendary Zendaya –you’ll recognize a ton of familiar faces when Euphoria debuts on HBO. Maude Apatow from Girls, Sydney Sweeney from Sharp Objects and Jacob Elordi from The Kissing Booth are also on the show. Rounding out the cast are Angus Cloud, Grey’s Anatomy alum Eric Dane, Barbie Ferreira, Alexa Demie, Nika King, A Wrinkle In Time’s Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer and The Hate U Give’s Algee Smith. Clearly, HBO is going to do its best to get us over our Game of Thrones withdrawal.
When will Euphoria premiere on HBO?
Euphoria is set to premiere on Father’s Day –June 16, 2019, which also happens to be the week after Big Little Lies Season 2 debuts — so your Sunday nights will already be covered. The very first season has a standard 10-, so HBO is giving us a good chunk of time to get to know our characters and their glitzy world.
So far Euphoria is giving us Pretty Little Liars on steroids vibes and we’re here for it. Will you be watching?
