Sam Levinson, the creator of Euphoria, is no stranger to controversy; his button-pushing series has received just as much scathing criticism as it has praise. For another programme that is sure to alienate fans, he has now linked up with pop star The Weeknd.

Suzanna Son, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Troye Sivan, Rachel Sennott, and Dan Levy are also included in the cast.
