HBO has greenlit drama “Euphoria” for a second season, with an unconfirmed number of new episodes for 2020. The drama, starring Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”), 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 eight-episode first season.
“Euphoria 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, EVP, HBO Programming. “We look forward to following these complex characters as their journeys continue through the challenging world they inhabit.”
The series ranks as HBO’s youngest skewing drama series on the network’s digital platforms.
