(Fwrd Axis) — Rue and her friends are ready for more drama on HBO Max.
The network announced on Friday they have renewed hit series Euphoria for a third season after a record-breaking Season 2, which has led to ratings success for HBO.
“Sam [Levinson], Zendaya, and the entire cast and crew of Euphoria have taken Season 2 to extraordinary heights, challenging narrative convention and form, while maintaining its heart,” Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Programming, said in a statement.
“We couldn’t be more honored to work with this gifted, wildly talented team or more excited to continue our journey with them into Season 3,” Orsi added.
Season 1 of Euphoria follows high school followed high schooler Rue (Zendaya) as she struggled with her sobriety and the romantic issues in her life. The second season premiere was the most-viewed episode of an HBO series on HBO Max with over 14 million viewers.
“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,” according to HBO’s plot summary for season 2.
Zendaya recently reminded fans the subject matter for the second season is more mature than its first season, dealing with issues like abuse and drug addiction.
“I know I’ve said this before, but I do want to reiterate to everyone that Euphoria is for mature audiences,” she wrote. “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,” the 25-year-old added. “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 current season of Euphoria airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO and airs the next day on HBO Max.
