new Delhi: American teen drama show “Euphoria” has become HBO’s second most-watched show since 2004, behind only “Game of Thrones,” according to the pay TV channel. The Zendaya-led drama has hit another series high on Sunday, attracting 6.6 million viewers with its Season 2 finale episode.

When Season 2 of the show premiered, reportedly, HBO’s vision came crashing down. As of today, Season 2 premiere viewership is reaching 19 million viewers in the US, reports Variety.com.

According to HBO, “Euphoria” Season 2 episodes now average 16.3 million viewers, the best performance for any season of an HBO series in the past 18 years other than “Game of Thrones.”

In keeping with the previous record, “Euphoria” was once again the top title on HBO Max in the US for the seventh week in a row, as well as the top series for the week in both Latin America and Europe.

Euphoria’s per-episode-viewer average was up almost 100 percent from the first season, after the second season aired only the first four episodes.

The show also elevated to a new series when it aired on February 13, opposite Super Bowl LVI.

“Euphoria” is the most tweeted show of the decade — by far — with 34 million tweets in the US.

“Euphoria” Season 2 focuses on the lives of high school students in the town of East Highland, where 17-year-old Rue (Zendaya) must find hope while balancing the pressures of love, loss and addiction. The finale episode revealed many of the season’s biggest conflicts—in more than one violent fashion.

The series stars Zendaya, Hunter Schaefer, Nika King, Eric Dane, Angus Claude, Jacob Elordi, Algie Smith, Sidney Sweeney, Alexa Demi, Barbie Ferreira, Maude Apatow, Jevon Walton, Dominic Fick, Storm Reid and Austin Abrams.
