HBO RENEWS DRAMA SERIES "EUPHORIA" FOR A SECOND SEASON

LOS ANGELES, July 11, 2019 - HBO has renewed the drama series EUPHORIA for a second season, it was announced today by Francesca Orsi, EVP, HBO Programming.

"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 Orsi. "We look forward to following these complex characters as their journeys continue through the challenging world they inhabit."

EUPHORIA ranks as HBO's youngest skewing drama series on the network's digital platforms. In addition to delivering a series high for its Sunday night 10 p.m. premiere telecast, EUPHORIA continues to grow every week on HBO's digital platforms. The series premiere night has already delivered over 5.5 million viewers across HBO's platforms.

Kicking off its eight-episode first season June 16 on HBO and currently debuting new episodes on Sunday nights, EUPHORIA stars Zendaya ("Spider-Man: Homecoming") who heads the ensemble cast of the show, which 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 first season.

EUPHORIA puts a fresh spin on the coming-of-age narrative, exploring the teenage landscape of substance-enhanced parties and anxiety-ridden day-to-day life with empathy and candor. The series follows 17-year-old Rue Bennett (Zendaya), a drug addict fresh from rehab, who's struggling to make sense of her future. Her life changes dramatically when she meets Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer), a girl who recently moved to town following her parents' divorce, and like Rue is searching for where she belongs.

The cast for the first season of EUPHORIA includes Zendaya, Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith and Sydney Sweeney.

Hollywood Reporter hails EUPHORIA as "boundary-pushing, real and exceptionally realized," while Variety praises the series as having an "undeniable pull that makes it too intriguing to ignore." TV Guide calls it "lusciously shot," and getting "more and more jaw-dropping and gorgeous as it goes on." Indiewire notes "Zendaya is exceptional at every turn," and Rolling Stone praises the direction as "visually striking throughout, full of moments lit to look both menacing and intoxicating."

Season one credits: EUPHORIA was created and written by Sam Levinson, who also serves as executive producer; executive producers Ravi Nandan, Kevin Turen, Drake, Future the Prince, Hadas Mozes Lichtenstein, Ron Leshem, Daphna Levin, Tmira Yardeni, Mirit Toovi, Yoram Mokady, Gary Lennon and Jim Kleverweis; transgender consultant, Scott Turner Schofield; consultant, Jeremy O. Harris. Produced in partnership with A24 and based on the Israeli series of the same name, which was created by Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin, from HOT.
