Zendaya has shared a post on her Instagram ahead of season two of HBO's 'Euphoria', warning fans that the show's content can be 'triggering'. Zendaya posted a hazy shot of herself next to a bike on Instagram, captioning it, "A reminder before tonight..."

The second slide of the post included a caution to 'Euphoria' enthusiasts. She wrote, “I know I’ve said this before, but I do want to reiterate to everyone that Euphoria is for mature audiences. This season, maybe even more so than the last, is deeply emotional and deals with subject matter that can be triggering and difficult to watch.” “Please only watch it if you feel comfortable," Zendaya advised fans.

She wrote at the end of the message, “Take care of yourself and know that either way you are still loved and I can still feel your support. All my love, Daya.” The 25-year-old actress plays Rue, a girl who suffers from drug addiction, in 'Euphoria'. Rue's peers struggled with addictions, anxiety, and body image issues throughout season one of the teen drama series. Zendaya issued a similar viewer discretion warning before the show's launch in 2019 to warn viewers of the mature subjects that 'Euphoria' covers.

She commented at the time, “Just a reminder before tonight’s premiere, that Euphoria is for mature audiences. It’s a 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.”

According to the upcoming season's teaser, 'Euphoria' will continue to touch upon these difficult and sensitive subjects.  Due to the pandemic, the show's second season was initially delayed in 2020. 'Euphoria' returns to HBO on Sunday, January 9 at 9:00 pm ET, almost two years after it first aired.

During her interview with MJ Rodriguez for Variety's 'Actors on Actors', Zendaya said on the production halt, “I can’t complain. I’m very lucky to be safe and healthy and still know that I have a job, ‘Euphoria,’ that will be there. I think all we ever wanted was for people to feel seen through our work. And so that’s all I want to continue to do, to show the human side of what addiction does to a person. Hopefully, I get to get back into my Chucks and do it again.”
