Time to take stock. After the second season of the series “Euphoria” came to an end last Sunday, Feb. 27, HBO has released the ratings of the teen drama.

According to the American cable channel, the episodes of this second season drew an average of 16.3 million viewers. That’s more than double the average of its first season, and can be considered a roaring success.


These audience numbers represent the best performance for any HBO series in the last 18 years with one exception. Only the “Game of Thrones” series held strong against the “Euphoria” wave, which became a genuine phenomenon, even on social networks. The last episode of “Game of Thrones” drew 19.3 million American viewers on HBO platforms.


To date, the very first episode of the second season of “Euphoria” has been seen by almost 19 million viewers in the United States alone. The latest episode, meanwhile, captivated 6.6 million fans across all platforms, according to HBO. That’s five times the audience numbers for the final episode of the first season.

HBO noted that the series “Euphoria” ranked first in the top series on HBO Max in the United States but also in Latin America and Europe. A global success that looks set to continue as the series has already been renewed for a third season.

Starring Zendaya, “Euphoria” tells the story of a group of high school students, navigating family problems as well as addictions, sex, love and grief. JB
