It was revealed last year that Drake and Zendaya were joining forces for a new series. The show, titled Euphoria, was set to be a teen drama, with Drake and his manager, Future the Prince, serving as executive producers, and Zendaya as the main character. The show was picked up by HBO, which hosted other groundbreaking series like Game of Thrones. Euphoria already premiered in Asia last Monday, 17 June. But in case you missed it or need more information before deciding whether the show is worth catching or not, here are some facts that can help you.
It’s a remake
Written by Sam Levinson, the new HBO show is actually based on an Israeli mini-series of the same name that ran back in 2012. Euphoria revolves around the lives of high school students making sense of love and friendship in a world full of drugs and trauma. It’s HBO’s first series entirely about teenagers, following the wave of other teen shows like Riverdale and 13 Reasons Why from other networks.
