Zendaya is reaching out to her fans to thank them for supporting her dark, groundbreaking HBO drama Euphoria.

Ahead of the show's season finale on Sunday, Zendaya took to Instagram to share a heartfelt message with viewers who championed the show and allowed her to explore her talent, as well as her many co-stars and the show's creative crew.

"I have a lot to say, and I don’t know how to get it out, or even process these last 8 weeks but I’ll try," Zendaya wrote in the caption to a photo of herself in character as Rue Bennett. "I’m so grateful for this show. For the beautiful family I’ve gained from it, for the self discovery and purpose I’ve found in it, and the people that we’ve been able to connect with and speak to through it."

"We spent months, hard months, pouring ourselves into something we love, and it was an honor to have done so beside so many insanely talented, extraordinary people," she continued. "From my brilliant cast mates, H&MU, Costume Design, Cinematographers, ADs, Producers, the whole crew, each of you have inspired me and pushed me to be better everyday."

She also shared a message with the show's creator, Sam Levinson, for "trusting me with the most honest parts of yourself and bringing Rue into my life, for both of you, I’m forever grateful."

"Alright I could do this forever. But you get the idea, I’m thankful for a lot. And also for all of you out there for receiving our work with an open heart," she concluded. "Can’t wait to do it all again! With all this being said, the finale episode 8 tonight."

That fan support was on full display Sunday night, after the finale, when viewers took to Twitter to sing the show's praises and shower Zendaya with compliments.

The consensus among those on Twitter -- who managed to make Euphoria a trending topic -- is that the 22-year-old actress deserves some awards season love for this role.

The season finale also featured a surprise for devoted fans of the actress in the form of an original song recorded for the show and performed during the episode.

Zendaya teamed up with Labrinth for the powerful, bombastic track "All for Us."

Fans were equally effusive in their praise for Zendaya's new song as well, complimenting her for singlehandedly improving the show's already impressive and celebrated soundtrack.
