Zendaya recently took to Instagram and shared a teaser for the forthcoming HBO drama, 'Euphoria', a teen drama series produced by Drake. Panning through different scenes that feature high school students, the brief teaser ends with Zendaya saying, "This is the feeling I have been searching for my entire life." Zendaya plays the role of Rue, who is the lead in the series.
Similar to 'Degrassi' which Drake appeared in from 2001 to 2008, 'Euphoria' will follow high school students while they journey across, "drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love, and friendship." 'Euphoria' is based on the Israeli series of the same name and creators Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin will also serve as executive producers for HBO's remake of the series.
Along with Zendaya, the other cast members include Storm Reid, Maude Apatow, Brian "Astro" Bradley, Eric Dane, Angus Cloud, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Hunter Schafer, Austin Abrams, and Sydney Sweeney.
After Zendaya posted the teaser on Instagram, celebrities replied to her post in the comment section revealing how excited they are for the series to release. Model Ashley Graham commented on her post saying, "Oh yes please."
Apart from being in headlines for her role in 'Euphoria,' Zendaya was recently in the news for making a surprising appearance in season 2 of Netflix's 'The OA.' She appears in the first episode dressed in a loose flannel shirt and a pair of glasses. She played the role of the wise gamer named Fola who imparts wisdom into the detective. Her name was never mentioned during her appearance but was seen in subtitles.
She leads Karim the detective to next level puzzles which she herself is not able to solve, and that is where we say goodbye to her character. Following her role in 'The OA', Zendaya will also appear in 'Spider-Man: Far From Home,' and she is also in the middle of filming a starring role in the forthcoming Denis Villeneuve science fiction film 'Dune.'
'Euphoria' is set to release sometime in 2019 on HBO.
