Only “Game of Thrones” has managed to draw more viewers to HBO than “Euphoria”‘s second season.
The second season of “Euphoria” has been hailed by both TV critics and regular TV viewers around the world. Variety also now reports that the series is the second most watched TV series (counted in the US) since 2004, where only “Game of Thrones” has managed to attract more viewers per episode on average.

The second season of “Euphoria” has been watched by an average of 16.3 million viewers per episode, with the season premiere at the beginning of the year attracting almost 19 million American viewers to date. It therefore came as no great surprise when HBO chose to renew “Euphoria” with a third season already a month ago. However, it remains to be seen how many people choose to give the prequel series “House of the Dragon” a chance later this year, whether it will reach the same heights as “Game of Thrones” succeeded during its heyday or not.
The season finale of “Euphoria” was released yesterday and tied together a touch of absolutely fantastic season, which at least in my opinion managed to get an even better season than the first turn. Admittedly, the plot still follows Rue (Zendaya) and her problems with drugs, which also affect her schoolmates and family in various ways. But by keeping her story a little more independent to specific episodes (where the fifth; “Stand Still Like the Hummingbird”, may well be one of the best TV episodes of the year), we have during the second season also seriously learned know Lexi (Maude Apatow) and a bunch of other characters significantly better. An approach I would like to see continued during the third season!
