‘Euphoria’ Season 2 Had the Best Digital Premiere of Any HBO Episode on HBO Max





Euphoria is finally back for Season 2 after making fans wait two years since the first season premiered. WarnerMedia reports that Sunday’s episode 1 of the new season drew in more than 2.4 million viewers across HBO and HBO Max, making it “the strongest digital premiere performance of any HBO episode on HBO Max since the streaming service’s launch last May.”

That’s nine times higher than the first seasons’ digital debut which was available for streaming on the now defunct HBO Go and HBO Now. The TV series has drawn quite the fan base since it’s first season in June 2019, with two specials airing in 2020 and 2021 leading up to the Season 2 premiere.

So many people were watching the premiere on Sunday that users reported the HBO Max app had been crashing around 9 p.m, the time the episodes was released.

New episodes of Euphoria Season 2 will drop weekly on Sundays. You can stream them on HBO Max.

“Euphoria” follows the troubled life of 17-year-old Rue (Zendaya), a drug addict fresh from rehab with no plans to stay clean. Circling in Rue’s orbit are Jules, a transgender girl searching for where she belongs; Nate, a jock whose anger issues mask sexual insecurities; Chris, a football star who finds the adjustment from high school to college harder than expected; Cassie, whose sexual history continues to dog her; and Kat, a body-conscious teen exploring her sexuality. As the classmates struggle to make sense of their futures, the series tackles the teenage landscape of substance-enhanced parties and anxiety-ridden day-to-day life with empathy and candor.
