Zendaya is set to reportedly get a massive raise ahead of the third season of the hit HBO series Euphoria.
According to Matthew Belloni at Puck, the 26-year-old actress is reportedly set to earn around $1 million per episode of the series. Despite the series being an ensemble piece, Zendaya being the narrator and arguably the most prominent star on the show could’ve led to her new salary deal.
The $1 million mark is notable for having been achieved by the entire cast of sitcom FRIENDS during the show’s final three seasons.
Zendaya would still be paid significantly less than the FRIENDS cast due to inflation but hey, a million is a million. This would likely make Zendaya’s pay the highest of the show, which is one of HBO’s most popular current series on offer.
Euphoria follows a group of high school students as they navigate love and friendships in a world of drugs, sex, trauma and social media.
