You haven’t seen the last of Rue & crew. HBO just renewed Euphoria for a third season.
The Emmy-winning drama is currently airing its second season, which kicked off January 9. The season two premiere debuted as the most-watched episode of an HBO series on HBO Max. With more than 14 million viewers across platforms, Euphoria more than doubled its average audience of season one. (Looks like people used their extra downtime during the pandemic to catch up!)
In fact, the season two premiere of Euphoria was also the #1 most social premium cable episode since the 2019 series finale of Game of Thrones.
“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,” said HBO EVP Francesca Orsi. “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.”
In Euphoria, 17-year-old Rue (Zendaya) must find hope while balancing the pressures of love, loss, and addiction in East Highland. The series comes from creator/writer/director/executive producer Sam Levinson.
Season two also stars Hunter Schafer, Nika King, Eric Dane, Angus Cloud, Jacob Elordi, Algee Smith, Sydney Sweeney, Alexa Demie, Barbie Ferreira, Maude Apatow, Javon Walton, Dominic Fike, Storm Reid, and Austin Abrams.
The season two finale of Euphoria airs on February 27. You can watch the series on HBO and HBO Max.
