The series has garnered many awards including Zendaya winning an Emmny Award for her role on the show.
Zendaya, who also stars in the blockbuster film “Spider-Man: No Way Home” said being on the show has been meaningful.
“To me, when people have come up to me, at least, and shared their stories, whether it be of sobriety or other entry points to different characters that they feel connected to emotionally, that’s when I’m like, ‘You know, this is worth it.'” she said. “Like, what we’re doing means something to somebody, and that’s all we could ever really hope for. That’s the point. You know, that’s the purpose.”
