Zendaya Warns Viewers Of ‘Euphoria’s “Graphic”, “Raw” And “Triggering” Content Ahead Of HBO Debut.

There has been buzz around the HBO high school drama Euphoria and its portrayal of drugs and sex. The show’s star Zendaya took to Instagram ahead of its Sunday night premiere to give a warning to audiences about the series to let them know that it’s not going to be your basic G-rated Saved by the Bell teen fare.

“Just a reminder before tonight’s premiere, that Euphoria is for mature audiences,” wrote Zendaya. “It’s raw and honest portrait of addiction, anxiety and the difficulties of navigating life today. There are scenes that are graphic, hard to watch and can be triggering. Please only watch if you feel you can handle it. Do what’s best for you. I will still love you and feel your support. Love, Daya.”

Euphoria, which is based on the Israeli series from HOT, screened last week at the ATX Television Festival. While there, show creator and EP Sam Levinson addressed the drug use on the screen saying that he and the producers were “mindful of” the risk of glamorizing drug use “just by the sheer nature of it being on screen.” “We have to be authentic about it,” he said. “If we’re pulling our punches and we’re not showing the relief that drugs can bring it starts to lose its impact. Drugs are not the solution but they can feel like it at times, and that’s what makes them so destructive.”

Zendaya plays the role of Rue who has quite a potty mouth and likes to partake in drugs — that is a far cry from her time on the Disney Channel series Shake it Up. At ATX, she said that the role is a “very different”. She added that taking more of an adult role wasn’t strategic. “I just knew that I had to take my time and I had to go slow and I had to earn my way up,” she added. “It was just about being patient and slowly opening those doors for myself and getting into the rooms and getting people to see me a little bit more in a different way and not ever pushing it too far too fast. I think a moment like this, if it happened too soon, people wouldn’t be willing to accept it.”

Euphoria follows a group of high school students as they navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship. The series also stars Storm Reid, Maude Apatow, Algee Smith, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Hunter Schafer and Sydney Sweeney.

  29. I wish to show my thanks to the writer for rescuing me from this particular crisis. After searching through the internet and coming across ideas which are not beneficial, I thought my entire life was gone. Living without the presence of answers to the difficulties you have resolved by means of your main article is a critical case, and the kind that could have adversely damaged my career if I hadn’t discovered your website. Your competence and kindness in controlling every aspect was helpful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t discovered such a subject like this. It’s possible to at this point look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the expert and results-oriented help. I will not think twice to endorse the blog to anyone who needs and wants recommendations on this matter.
