Zendaya Issues Grim Trigger Warning For People Watching Euphoria Season 2

Zendaya Issues Grim Trigger Warning For People Watching Euphoria Season 2

People all around the world will be very excited as the second season of Euphoria premieres around the world.

While fans will no doubt be brewing a decent bowl of popcorn to get stuck into Rue's world all over again, the show's star has issued a fairly grim trigger warning.

Zendaya plays high-schooler Rue, who spent the first season battling drug addiction, trying to get clean, navigating her newfound friendship and love with Jules (Hunter Schafer), her fractured relationship with her family, and everything else that a teenager has to experience.

The 25-year-old said the second instalment of the award-winning show gets pretty dark and it should only be watched by people who are prepared for that.

"I know I've said this before, but I do want to reiterate to everyone that Euphoria is for mature audiences," she wrote on Twitter.

"This season, maybe even more so than the last, is deeply emotional and deals with subject matter that can be triggering and really difficult to watch.

"Please only watch if you feel comfortable.

"Take care of yourself and know that either way you are still loved and I can still feel your support."

The next season is expected to cover Rue and Jules' on-again, off-again relationship after that painstaking cliffhanger at the end of the HBO first series and the two special episodes, which were released in late 2020 and early 2021.

A trailer that was recently released depicted Rue going to an addiction meeting after her recent relapse, while the other characters continue to struggle with their relationships, identity, violence and drugs.

The second season of Euphoria is set to see the return of Zendaya (Rue), Hunter Schafer (Jules), Alexa Demie (Maddy), Maude Apatow (Lexi), Jacob Elordi (Nate), Barbie Ferreira (Kat), Storm Reid (Gia) and Sydney Sweeney (Cassie).

Also joining the cast for season two are Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly, who will portray a drug-addicted housewife, singer-songwriter Dominic Fike and rapper Lil Meech.

Zendaya's performance in the first season was praised by critics around the world. Her portrayal of someone battling addiction as well as other issues was so compelling that she won an Emmy award for Best Actress and beat out some heavy-hitters.

She became the youngest actress ever to win that gong for the Drama category.

Euphoria can be watched on Binge in Australia, Sky or NOW TV in the UK and HBO Max in the US. The first episode of Season 2 drops today (January 10).
