EXCLUSIVE: Euphoria continues to be the gift that gives for HBO and HBO Max.
Fresh off its Season 2 premiere, Euphoria’s latest episode earned 2.6 million viewers on Sunday, up 9% from the debut’s 2.4 million across all HBO platforms. The season premiere the previous week set a record for HBO Max viewership.
Euphoria’s latest episode picks up from the chaotic New Year’s Eve Party, which ended with Nate (Jacob Elordi) bloodied and bruised. The episode, titled “Out of Touch,” introduced possible love triangles for Rue (Zendaya), Jules (Hunter Schafer) and Elliot (Dominic Fike); and Nate, Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) and Maddy (Alexa Demie). Kat’s (Barbie Ferreria) insecurities bubble to an ugly head and tensions rise for Fezco (Angus Cloud) when he encounters Cal Jacobs (Eric Dane).
With episode two in the bag, Euphoria also marked HBO Max’s top show for the week.

The series trended #1 on Twitter in the U.S. and brought in 8.3 million linear interactions across a number of social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
