This month, HBO delivers another controversy-provoking show with the teen drama Euphoria. Starring Spider-Man: Far from Home actress Zendaya, Euphoria explores the highs and lows of youth in shocking, explicit ways. Watch its premiere in Australia on June 17, Monday at 9:30pm AEST, only on Foxtel.
In this new series, it’s gotten to a point where being young is now laced with detrimental complexities instigated by social media, drugs, and personal relationships. Euphoria tells the story of a group of high school students as they make sense of the things that happen to them and around them for reasons they can’t yet comprehend. Free to pursue temporary relief from the pressures of the new, demanding world, the question remains — what’s the catch? Find out on Fox Showcase on Foxtel every Mondays from June 17.
Euphoria Season 1 TV Preview
Adapted from an Israeli series of the same name and written by Sam Levinson (Assassination Nation), Euphoria follows a group of teenagers as they navigate high school, family life, romance, friendship, sex, drugs, trauma, and social media. Combine them altogether and there should be suppressed struggle waiting to erupt.
Even before its official airing, Euphoria has already sparked some controversy for its graphic content. Nonetheless, HBO expressed support in Levinson’s approach because several scenes are from the writer’s personal experience himself. Drake and his manager, Future the Prince, also serve as executive producers.
Starring Zendaya, (Spider-Man), Jacob Elordi (The Kissing Booth), Hunter Schafer, and Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann’s daughter, Maude Apatow, the much anticipated Euphoria TV series starts streaming in Australia on Foxtel’s FOX SHOWCASE as part of the Drama Pack from Monday, June 17 9:30pm AEST.
