HBO’s ‘Euphoria,’ with Raleigh trans actress, airs season finale
Euphoria (10 p.m., HBO) - It’s the season finale of HBO’s adaptation of an Israeli series about a 17-year-old girl (played by Zendaya) and her circle of friends and acquaintances as they navigate the hazards of drugs, sex and social media. Raleigh trans actress Hunter Schafer is one of the stars. Adults (at least those with kids) may find this hard to watch, but many teens say it’s pretty realistic (or at least relatable). This has been renewed for a second season.
