Actress Zendaya has warned fans that the new hit show series Euphoria contains themes that may be “triggering” and “difficult to watch” for some viewers.
The hard-hitting drama centers on a group of adult teenagers in the United States, showing how they deal with topics such as their mental health, drug addiction, porn revenge, and sexual assault.
Posting on Instagram a few hours before the new season aired, the Spider-Man star wrote: “I know I’ve said this before, but I want to reiterate to everyone that Euphoria is addressing a adult audience. “

“This season, perhaps even more than the last, is deeply moving and deals with topics that can be triggering and difficult to watch,” she continued.
“Please only watch it if you feel comfortable. Take care of yourself and know that either way you are still loved and I can always feel your support.”
Each episode of the show also issues a disclaimer on upcoming themes that may confuse viewers.
Zendaya stars as the main character Rue, a 17-year-old struggling with drug addiction and depression, and struggling to find her place in the world.
Hunter Schafer, Maude Apatow and Eric Dane are among the big names in the supporting cast of the critically acclaimed Emmy and People’s Choice Awards series.
The new series shows the character of Zendaya falling back into drugs after a stint in rehab and reuniting with her former partner Jules.
Euphoria is the latest in a series of big projects starring Zendaya in recent months, after appearing in a sci-fi epic Dune last year, as well as Spider-Man: No Path Home in December.
The first episode of the new season of Euphoria is available on the Sky NOW streaming service.
