Euphoria is now HBO’s second-most watched show, losing out only to the (likely impossible to beat) Game of Thrones.
Per Variety, HBO announced that Euphoria – its Zendaya-led coming-of-age drama – is now averaging 16.3 million viewers per episode.
Euphoria’s Season 2 finale aired on February 27 and drew in 6.6 million viewers, while its premiere is currently approaching 19 million viewers. It’s also been HBO Max’s most popular show for seven weeks straight
Game of Thrones’ final season averaged 44.2 million viewers per episode, so despite Euphoria being incredibly successful, it doesn’t quite come close.vg
Discussing the second season of Euphoria, IGN said that its lead character Rue Bennett (played by Zendaya) is a key to draw to the series and lovable because of her humanity, not in spite of it.
