The series premiere night has already delivered over 5.5 million viewers across HBO’s platforms.
Kicking off its eight-episode first season June 16 on HBO and currently debuting new episodes on Sunday nights, EUPHORIA stars Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”) who heads the ensemble cast of the show, which follows a group of high school students as they navigate a minefield of drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship. The series is created and written by Sam Levinson (HBO’s “The Wizard of Lies”), who also directs five episodes of the first season.
EUPHORIA puts a fresh spin on the coming-of-age narrative, exploring the teenage landscape of substance-enhanced parties and anxiety-ridden day-to-day life with empathy and candor. 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 like Rue is searching for where she belongs.
The cast for the first season of EUPHORIA includes Zendaya, Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith and Sydney Sweeney.
Hollywood Reporter hails EUPHORIA as “boundary-pushing, real and exceptionally realized,” while Variety praises the series as having an “undeniable pull that makes it too intriguing to ignore.” TV Guide calls it “lusciously shot,” and getting “more and more jaw-dropping and gorgeous as it goes on.” Indiewire notes “Zendaya is exceptional at every turn,” and Rolling Stone praises the direction as “visually striking throughout, full of moments lit to look both menacing and intoxicating.”
