The season 2 premiere of intense teen drama starring Zendaya netted over 13 million viewers. The average season 1 audience was 6.6 million.
HBO has announced Euphoria has been officially renewed for season 3. I’m assuming being the talk of social media every Sunday had something to do with it.
The intense teen drama created by Sam Levinson, led by Emmy winner Zendaya doubled its average season 1 audience of 6.6 million viewers with its season 2 premiere. It has netted more than 13 million viewers across platforms since Jan. 9. The episode is being claimed the most social premium cable episode since The Game of Thrones series finale in 2019. That’s according to the network.
In a statement about the season 3 renewal, Francesca Orsi, executive VP of HBO said; “Sam, Zendaya, and the entire cast and crew of Euphoria have taken Season 2 to extraordinary heights. Challenging narrative convention and form, while maintaining its heart. We couldn’t be more honored to work with this gifted, wildly talented team or more excited to continue our journey with them into Season 3.”
The series also stars Hunter Schafer, Dominic Fike, Eric Dane, Jacob Elordi, Sydney Sweeney, Angus Cloud, Maude Apatow, Storm Reid, Barbie Ferreira, Austin Abrams, Alexa Demie, Algee Smith, Nika King, and Javon Walton. Levinson, Zendaya, and Drake are among its executive producers. Based on the Israeli series of the same name, created by Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin.
The Euphoria season 2 finale airs on Sunday, Feb. 27 at 9 p.m. ET.
