"Euphoria" will arrive in June to HBO.

Drake's already made his imprint in the music industry and now, he's taking his talents to the world of television. Of course, he's already had experience in the field given his run on Degrassi as a youngin'. Drake will serve as the executive producer, along with Future The Prince, for HBO's upcoming series, Euphoria starring Zendaya. The rapper shared a teaser for it last month but now, he's taken to social media to reveal the release date and share the official trailer for the show.

HBO's Euphoria will officially be available on June 16th on the cable network along with its related streaming platforms. Drake shared a moody trailer for the show which is an American adaptation of an Israeli series of the same name. Zendaya leads the cast which includes Maude Apatow, Sydney Sweeney, Algee Smith, and Jacob Elordi.

Hollywood Reporter describes the show as focusing on a group of teenagers who "navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship."

"I promise you, if I could be a different person, I would," Zendaya says in the trailer. "Not because I want it, but because they do. But here's the thing: One day I just showed up without a map or a compass, and at some point you have to make a choice — about who you are and what you want. And therein lies the catch."
