The third season of HBO’s “Euphoria” may have a completely different feel from what fans are used to.

Zendaya, the star fronting the controversial hit drama, has teased what fans might be able to expect from the confirmed upcoming season.

And it seems as though a high school setting may no longer be on the cards.

“I think it’ll be exciting to explore the characters out of high school,” the Emmy Award winner told The Hollywood Reporter.

“I want to see what Rue looks like in her sobriety journey, how chaotic that might look.”

“But also with all the characters, in the sense where they’re trying to figure out what to do with their lives when high school is over and what kind of people they want to be,” she said of the show, which is HBO’s second most-watched show behind “Game of Thrones.”

In “Euphoria,” Zendaya plays Rue Bennett, a 17-year-old, high-school student who struggles with substance abuse.

What’s more, the actress teased that season 3 will continue to explore each character’s individual backgrounds.

“What was special about this season was that we got to dive into [the other characters] in a much deeper sense,” she told the outlet. “I think we can do that again with the third season.”

“There’s so much talent, you want to make sure everybody has the chance to have that,” she added.

The third season of the hit show was confirmed back in February.
