Euphoria is an American teen drama television series created and written by Sam Levinson for HBO. It is loosely based on the Israeli television miniseries of the same name created by Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin.[1][2][3][4] It follows a group of high school students through their experiences of sex, drugs, friendships, love, identity, and trauma.[5] The series stars Zendaya in the lead role, alongside an ensemble cast consisting of Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith, Sydney Sweeney, and Colman Domingo. It premiered on June 16, 2019.[6][7] In July 2019, the series was renewed for a second season,[8] preceded by two one-hour specials broadcast in December 2020 and January 2021.

Euphoria received positive reviews from critics, with praise for its cinematography, story, score, acting (particularly that of Zendaya and Schafer), and approach to its mature subject matter, though it did become the subject of controversy for its use of nudity and sexual content, which some critics perceived to be excessive. The series received nominations for the British Academy Television Award for Best International Programme, and the TCA Award for Outstanding Achievement in Drama. For her performance, Zendaya won a Primetime Emmy Award and Satellite Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series.

91"Trouble Don't Last Always"
"Part 1: Rue"
Sam LevinsonSam LevinsonDecember 6, 2020 (2020-12-06)[a]0.236[20]
On Christmas Eve, following her relapse, an intoxicated Rue sits at a diner with Ali to reflect on her addiction. Rue admits that she willingly relapsed with little hesitation; Ali reminds her that addiction is a disease, and emphasizes the importance of committing to a cause greater than herself. Rue attempts to blame Jules for her relapse, but Ali points out that Rue had been saving the pills she ultimately used, suggesting that she was never serious about staying clean. He also notes that Rue never officially acknowledged her relationship with Jules. Rue eventually admits that she does not forgive herself for her treatment of her family (particularly her mother), and that she is suicidal. Ali argues that drugs fundamentally change a person; he reveals that he grew up with an abusive father for whom he harbored deep hatred, only to become violent with his own wife after developing a drug addiction, ultimately estranging his two daughters. Ali tells Rue that a refusal to forgive oneself for one's mistakes is what prevents personal change, and that he has faith in her ability to improve.

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

On June 1, 2017, it was announced that HBO was developing an adaptation of the 2012 Israeli television series Euphoria created by Ron Leshem, Daphna Levin, and Tmira Yardeni. The production was expected to be written by Sam Levinson, who was also set to executive-produce alongside Leshem, Levin, Yardeni, Hadas Mozes Lichtenstein, Mirit Toovi, Yoram Mokadi, and Gary Lennon.[23] Levinson based the series on his own experiences as a teenager, including his struggles with anxiety, depression, and drug addiction.[24] He stated, "There is this consistent anxiety that I think exists in this generation, that I think, informed the whole filmmaking process..."[25]

On March 13, 2018, HBO programming president Casey Bloys announced at the INTV conference in Jerusalem that the network had given the production a pilot order. It was further announced that A24 would serve as a production company for the pilot.[26] On March 27, 2018, it was announced that Augustine Frizzell would direct the pilot episode and serve as co-executive producer.[27] On July 30, 2018, it was announced that HBO had given the production a series order and that every episode of the series will be written by Levinson. Additional executive producers were to include Drake, Future the Prince, Ravi Nandan, and Kevin Turen, while production companies involved included A24 Television.[5]

On July 11, 2019, the series was renewed for a second season.[8]

The promotional posters for the series were designed by Percival & Associates.[28][29]

HBO ordered two special episodes to air before the second season. The first one, titled "Trouble Don't Last Always", premiered on December 6, 2020, and follows Rue as she deals with the aftermath of leaving Jules at the train station and relapsing.[30] The second special, titled "Fuck Anyone Who's Not a Sea Blob", premiered on January 24, 2021, and follows Jules's side of the story.[31]

Writing[edit]

Zendaya explained how the second season would reveal some strong development for the series' characters. She also said, "It's a challenging season. It's gonna be hard and it's gonna be devastating sometimes, but I think Rue really deserves all of that care when it comes to her character, because I think she represents a lot for so many people." She later stated that the second season would "not be a fun watch".[32][33]

Casting[edit]

On June 7, 2018, it was announced that the pilot would star Zendaya, Storm Reid, Maude Apatow, Astro, Eric Dane, Angus Cloud, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Hunter Schafer, and Sydney Sweeney.[34] On October 31, 2018, it was reported that Algee Smith had been cast to replace Astro in the series regular role of McKay. It was further reported that Austin Abrams had also been cast in the series.[35] In April 2020, it was announced Kelvin Harrison Jr. had joined the cast of the second season. In May 2021, however, it was announced that Harrison had dropped out of the role due to scheduling conflicts.[36][37] In August 2021, it was announced that Dominic Fike, Minka Kelly, and Demetrius "Lil Meech" Flenory Jr. had joined the cast for the second season.[38]

Filming[edit]

Confirmed locations include Sony Studios in Los Angeles, Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance, and Ulysses S Grant High School in Valley Glen.[39] Production for the second season was scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2020, with the first table read taking place on March 11.[40] However, it was delayed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[41][42] Production on the second season began in March 2021, with filming following in April 2021.[43]

Music[edit]

Euphoria's score was composed by English singer, songwriter, and record producer Labrinth. In an interview with Rolling Stone, he stated, "When you look back to your teenage days, it feels semi-magical but semi-crazy and semi-psychotic. I wanted to make sure the music felt like those things."[44] The song "All for Us", performed by Labrinth and Zendaya, is hinted throughout season one, but has the large musical number acted out at the very end of the season finale.[45]

The show also makes unusually extensive[46] use of popular music, including hip-hop, trap, R&B, experimental, indie rock, standards and doo-wop, with some episodes featuring over 20 songs.[47][48] For their work on Euphoria's first season, music supervisors Jen Malone (who also supervises Atlanta) and Adam Leber won the 2020 Guild of Music Supervisors Award for Best Music Supervision in a Television Drama.[49]

Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

Season 1[edit]

The first season was met with a positive response from critics, with much of the praise going to its acting, story, visuals, and approach to mature subject matter. On the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes the first season has a positive score of 80%, with an average rating of 7.3/10 based on 97 critical reviews,[53] resulting in it being designated "Certified Fresh". The website's critical consensus summary states, "Though at times hard to watch, Euphoria balances its brutal honesty with an empathetic – and visually gorgeous – eye to create a uniquely challenging and illuminating series, held together by a powerfully understated performance from Zendaya."[53] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 68 out of 100, based on 26 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[54]

Ben Travers of IndieWire praised the show's authenticity and how HBO "grounds itself in stark reality." As well, he praised Zendaya's performance and narration, and how she manages to fulfill the leading role.[55] Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter praised Zendaya's performance and the handling of the subject matter.[56] Pilot Vireut of Observer praised the show as being visually stunning, as well as the ensemble performance, but criticized the writing as "shaky, filled with clunky lines", and recommended that the show "keep its focus narrow".[57]

The series garnered criticism from the conservative Parents Television Council after it was reported that one of the episodes contained "close to 30 penises [flashing] onscreen" and the onscreen statutory rape of a character. The Parent Television Council also criticized the show for marketing "graphic adult content" towards teens.[58]

Specials[edit]

The first of the two special episodes received critical acclaim for its writing, performances, and shift in tone and content from the first season. On Rotten Tomatoes, the episode has a score of 96%, with an average rating of 8.44/10 based on 23 critical reviews. The website's critical consensus reads, "Euphoria slows down the tempo without losing the beat in a special episode that pairs a raw Zendaya with a steady Colman Domingo to create small screen magic."[59] On Metacritic, the episode has a weighted average score of 84 out of 100, based on 10 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim".[60]

The second of the two special episodes also received critical acclaim, with particular praise for Schafer's performance, as well as the episode's distinct directorial approach, its emotional resonance, and its exploration of trans identity. On Rotten Tomatoes, the episode has a score of 93%, with an average rating of 7.58/10 based on 15 critical reviews. The website's critical consensus reads, "By centering on Jules' journey, F*ck Anyone Who is Not a Sea Blob adds welcome depth to her character and gives Hunter Schafer plenty of room to shine."[61] On Metacritic, the episode has an average weighted score of 78 out of 100, based on 10 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews."[62]

Ratings[edit]

The show's premiere averaged 577,000 viewers in its time slot, a number which increased to one million following the same-night linear replay and preliminary viewing on HBO Go/Now. The hashtag #EuphoriaHBO trended number one in the United States and number three worldwide on Twitter after the premiere.[63]
