Zendaya has re-negotiated her deal with HBO for ‘Euphoria,’ according to Puck News.
The 26-year-old two-time Emmy-winning actress will now be paid close to a million dollars, per episode, for starring and producing the show. The deal will reportedly make her one of the current highest-paid actresses on television.
‘Euphoria’ season 3 will begin filming in the second half of 2023, according to Vogue Magazine.
The upcoming season will not feature Barbie Ferreira, which many figured since she rarely received screen time in season 2. She allegedly didn’t see eye to eye on set with the series creator Sam Levinson. Plus, they were multiple complaints by cast members and staff about their grueling work day. Ferreira told the world about her exit from ‘Euphoria’ on her Instagram story on August 24, 2022.
She says, “After four years of getting to embody the most special character Kat. I’m having to say a very teary-eyed goodbye. I hope many of you could see yourself in her as I did and that she brought you joy to see her journey into the character she is today. I put all my care and love into her, and I hope you guys could feel it. Love you, Katherine Hernandez.”
The HBO series is the most-tweeted-about show of the decade in the U.S., with more than 30 million tweets related to the show during the second season, Twitter reveals.
Sam Levinson’s HBO series was averaging 16 million viewers for its second season, at the time, was the network’s second-most watched the show since 2004, trailing only Game of Thrones.
