Zendaya has reminded fans on social media that Euphoria is strictly for ‘mature audiences’ as the highly-anticipated season 2 finally makes its debut.
The 25-year-old actress plays Rue Bennett in the HBO series, a recovering drug addict who is also struggling with severe anxiety.
The teen drama, created by Sam Levinson, is known for pushing the boundaries in regards to explicit content, and according to Zendaya the latest season is ‘deeply emotional’.
The Malcom and Marie star shared a blurry black and white image of her in character and a message to all her fans, who were hyping the arrival of the long-awaited episode.
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.
‘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 network’s official season two synopsis reads: ‘Amidst the intertwining lives in the town of East Highland, 17-year-old Rue must find hope while balancing the pressures of love, loss, and addiction.’
The series also stars Jacob Elordi, Eric Dane, Sydney Sweeney, and Alexa Demie.
Zendaya’s portrayal of the troubled teen earned her first-ever Emmy win in 2020, which also marked her being the youngest star to win the lead actress in a drama series award.
The Dune star recently revealed what lies ahead for Rue and expressed there are dark times ahead.
Speaking to RadioTimes.com, she said: ‘This season, more specifically, she goes to the rock bottom.
‘When we get midway through, that’s when the rock bottom hits, and that’s where it became extremely painful for all of us to watch. And to portray her going through it hurt me.’
