A season inspired by film noir
If the end of season 2 seemed to indicate that Rue Bennett (played by Zendaya) was on the path to redemption, HBO series creator Sam Levinson told the magazine. She that the next season, which will take place after the high school years, will be inspired by film noir with an even darker atmosphere around decidedly pessimistic themes such as betrayal, infidelity, or murder. Through the character of Rue, the director of The Idol claimed to want “explore what it means to be a principled individual in a corrupt world.”

Series Euphoria revealed her and made her the youngest actress to twice win Best Leading Actress at the Emmy Awards. Just 26 years old, Zendaya continues to establish herself as one of the matrix faces of Hollywood. She will soon be featured in Luca Guadagnino’s new film Challengers, then in Dune: Part Two by Denis Villeneuve and in the new feature film by Francis Ford Coppola, Megalopolis.
With this third season of the teenage drama, she is about to become one of the highest paid actresses on the small screen.

I love you, Katherine Hernandez”, she wrote in a message posted on instagram.
