The show stars Zendaya as Rue Bennett, a teenager struggling with drug addiction, and Hunter Schafer as Jules Vaughn, a transgender girl who moves to town and becomes Rue’s friend.

The few revelations are that Euphoria is HBO’s production and what HBO is well-known for, making us wait longer than necessary. Since the series got renewed for the third season on February 4, 2022, fans’ expectations regarding the release reached the sky forgetting the cast’s schedule. Since the main actress of the series is Rue, season three it’s said to showcase Rue’s sobriety journey Zendaya, opened up about exploring characters outside the high school. Maybe, that’s why Zendaya, the well-known actress, is expected to be paid $1 million per episode. She becomes an executive producer of the show for its second season.

The payment of Euphoria’s stars has been oft-discussed, especially since a 2022 Hollywood Reporter profile where Sydney Sweeney said, “They don’t pay actors like they used to, and with streamers, you no longer get residuals. The established stars still get paid, but I have to give 5 percent to my lawyer, 10 percent to my agents, and 3 percent or something like that to my business manager. I have to pay my publicist every month, and that’s more than my mortgage.”
