The most-talked about teen drama series ‘Euphoria’ is now the second-watched on HBO.
The Zendaya-led series is on the second spot and behind “Game of Thrones” which still reigns as the most-watched on pay TV network.
Euphoria wrapped Season 2 with the finale episode on Sunday, receiving 6.6 million viewers.
According to HBO, “Euphoria” Season 2 episodes are now averaging 16.3 million viewers, the best performance for any season of an HBO series over the past 18 years, other than “Game of Thrones.” To date, the Season 2 premiere’s viewership is approaching 19 million viewers in the U.S.
Created by Sam Levinson and starring Zendaya and Hunter Schaefer as Rue and Jules, Euphoria centers around Rue’s struggle with sobriety. The series begins her story following an overdose which leads into her relationship with Jules and her struggle to maintain any sort of sobriety program with her drug use.
But what works so well for the HBO drama is that the show is filled with characters around Rue who are all struggling in their own ways.
