HBO’s Euphoria reached a new series high in viewership on Super Bowl Sunday.
Variety reports the sixth episode of the show’s second season drew 5.1 million viewers, which marks a 20 percent increase from the previous week’s episode, as well as a 45 percent uptick above the Season 2 average.
“Euphoria ranked as the No. 1 title on HBO Max in the U.S. for the fifth week in a row and the top series globally,” HBO wrote in a statement. “Euphoria was the No. 1 most social and No. 1 most talked about broadcast when excluding the Super Bowl. Episode 1 is now tracking at 16.7 million viewers across platforms, just over 2.5x the average audience of Season 1 (6.6 million viewers per episode).”
Earlier this month, HBO announced that the hit series would be renewed for a third season.
“Sam [Levinson], 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,” Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Programming, said in a statement. “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.”
