July 11 (UPI) -- HBO said Thursday it has renewed its teen drama series Euphoria for a second season.
"Euphoria creator Sam Levinson has built an incredible world with an extraordinary cast led by the supremely talented Zendaya. We are so grateful that he chose HBO as the home for this groundbreaking series," Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO programming, said in a statement. "We look forward to following these complex characters as their journeys continue through the challenging world they inhabit."
The coming-of-age story kicked off its eight-episode, first season in June.
"Literally just got the call. Can't say thank you enough for the support we've seen, wow...," Zendaya, who is also a producer on the show, tweeted about the renewal.
