Drake's acting days might be in the past but that doesn't mean he's not involved in the world of television and film. The rapper, along with his DJ and manager, Future The Prince, is set to serve as an executive producer of HBO's Euphoria which is set to premiere in the near future. Drizzy took to Instagram today to share a short teaser of the show with the caption, "@euphoria is coming soon to @hbo." Although he didn't detail when we could expect it, the short teaser shows promising signs that it'll be a must-watch series.

Euphoria is a high school drama that explores a group of students as they, "navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship," according to Hollywood Reporter. The show is based on a 2012 Israeli series of the same name. Zendaya leads the cast which includes Maude Apatow, Brian "Astro" Bradley, Angus McLoud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, and Sydney Sweeney.

Aside from Euphoria, it was previously reported that Drake would star and produce the third series of Top Boy. Since then, there hasn't been many updates since the original announcement but it feels like that could be another show we end up seeing in the near future. 

Keep your eyes peeled for more information on Euphoria.
