First Episode of 'Euphoria' Season 2 Breaks HBO Max Viewer Record

Drawing 2.4 million viewers across all platforms.

The first episode of Euphoria Season 2 finally hit HBO Max last weekend, breaking the streaming platform’s viewer record since its launch in May 2021.

The series, starring Zendaya, Hunter Schafer, Alexa Demie and more, premiered with 2.4 million viewers, marking nine times higher than Season 1 Episode 1 that was released in June 2019. According to some tweets, the HBO Max app even crashed when the new episode had just dropped on the platform. With the sophomore season arriving in over two years, fans also revisited the first installment, with eight episodes of Season 1 taking the top 10 spots on HBO Max.

The second season of Euphoria comes after a long-awaited hiatus and two special episodes that aired in December 2020 and January 2021.
