As fans eagerly await the second series, Zendaya told Teen Vogue that it is “intense”.
“It’s a difficult season, I’m kinda in the middle of it. I had like a 2:30AM wrap time last night, we’re in the thick of it,” she begins as she discusses the season’s intensive plot-lines and production schedule.
She then shares that the show is “intense” as it covers difficult topics including addiction, substance abuse, sex work, sexuality, and mental health.
“And it’s very personal to, not only ourselves,” she continues, “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.”
Zendaya then explains that her character undergoes some tough character development in season 2. “It’s gonna be hard and it’s gonna be devastating sometimes, but 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.”
