The American teen drama television series based on the Israeli miniseries of the same name had its pilot this June and the final episode aired August 4, 2019.
Currently known as MJ in the new Spider-Man films, Zendaya gives an astonishing performance in her own tv series starring as Rue Bennet, a teenager battling with drug addiction.
The series opens up with her buying drugs from her old pal Fezco immediately after being released from rehab. When she meets the new girl in town Jules (Hunter Schafer), her search for self-identity takes a new turn. Rue had her first drug at 13 and has been addicted since her life has been a downsloping road since. Jules was her first hope and amidst all the drama. And guess what? Both end up having a fling.
Few episodes down the line… Jules visits an old roommate, Anna. Quite to their surprise the old friends get high and end up having a sexual experience, during which Jules hallucinates about both Nate and Rue. She later texts a recovering Rue about how much she misses her. Jules later admits to Rue about being in love with both of them.
Meanwhile, Nate diverts cops to Fezco’s location. On a whim, Rue asks Jules to leave town with her, but backs out at the last second; Jules ends up leaving alone. Despondent, Rue has a flashback to the day her father died. In this memory, she gets high after her father’s death, experiencing vivid hallucinations.
It’s been nearly 2 months now since the finale closed down on us. And the show has become increasingly popular since it last aired. Therefore it has become subject to a great number of fan theories and speculation. Such as “Jules getting killed.” “Romance between Lexi and Rue.” “Nate being killed or arrested”. But we aren’t going to delve into theories.
In Zendaya’s 6-year-old career as an actress, she has generated over 61 million followers on Instagram, mainly owing to Spider-Man and her tv series. She’s also starring in Dune, an upcoming movie in 2020.
Though the official release date for season 2 hasn’t been announced yet, even if we go by default and expect it next year, it wouldn’t come out at least till last quarter or extreme late 2020, for actresses need to be present for the shooting of he new film.
