“‘Euphori’a creator Sam Levinson has built an incredible world with an extraordinary cast led by the supremely talented Zendaya. We are so grateful that he chose HBO as the home for this groundbreaking series,” said Francesca Orsi, executive vice president, HBO Programming. “We look forward to following these complex characters as their journeys continue through the challenging world they inhabit.”
“Euphoria” follows a group of high school students as they navigate a minefield of drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship and is currently showing in Thailand at the same time as in the US every Monday at 9am.
The series follows 17-year-old Rue Bennett (Zendaya), a drug addict fresh from rehab, who’s struggling to make sense of her future. Her life changes dramatically when she meets Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer), a girl who recently moved to town following her parents’ divorce and who, like Rue, is searching for where she belongs.
