In a new teaser trailer released by the premium cable channel, Zendaya takes center stage of the 40-second visual as we get glimpses of the beautiful, dark, and twisted world of the A24 produced show.
“I promise you, if I could be a different person, I would,” Zendaya’s character narrates. “Not because I want it but because they do. But here’s the thing: One day I just showed up without a map or a compass, and at some point you have to make a choice — about who you are and what you want. And therein lies the catch.”

Executive produced by Drake, Euphoria focuses on a group of high school students as they “navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship,” per the show’s logline. Alongside Zendaya, the cast includes Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordie, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith and Sydney Sweeney.
HBO’s post-Game of Thrones hit will be dropping this summer, June 16. Are you excited for Euphoria?
