Euphoria season 2 is going to be "devastating", according to Rue Bennett actress Zendaya.

Created by Sam Levinson, the HBO teen drama won the 24-year-old a Primetime Emmy Award last year for her performance as a recovering drug addict.

Taking a break from filming brand new episodes, Zendaya caught up with Teen Vogue to tease what's to come.

"It's a difficult season, I'm kinda in the middle of it," she said. "I had like a 2.30am wrap time last night, we're in the thick of it.

"But, you know, the show was intense. And it's very personal to, not only ourselves and all the people who work on it, but also, to other people who have been able to relate so deeply to the characters or see their experiences being reflected through Rue.

"So we take that very seriously. And it's definitely challenging, it's a challenging season."

The Spider-Man star went on to explain the significance of Euphoria's tough material.

"I think Rue really deserves all of that care when it comes to her character, because I think she represents a lot for so many people. And I hope to make those people proud with our depictions of Rue [and] where all the characters go.

"I think this season's not going to be easy, though. It's not going to be a fun watch, I don't think. Sometimes."

In other words, don't be expecting to laugh too much.

Euphoria airs on HBO in the US and Sky Atlantic in the UK.
