Euphoria’s season 1 finale receives series high ratings

As Euphoria hits a series high with its finale viewership, it has also become the cable giant’s second most social series, right after Game of Thrones.

Euphoria quickly found its target audience and became a sensational hit amongst teens and young adults. And the series, which wrapped up last Sunday, has just solidified its popularity with huge viewing figures according to a report from Deadline.

According to Deadline, the season 1 finale of the new HBO Drama Euphoria garnered over 530,000 live viewers during its original air time last Sunday on the cable giant. Although the figure is not exactly staggering, Euphoria‘s major shares come from streaming and delayed viewing as the Zendaya-starring breakout hit reached over a total of 1.2 million viewers through HBO GO and HBO NOW, which was its series high.

Euphoria has been surrounded by some real controversies ever since the show premiered back in June. But even after all that, the show has managed to overcome and has prove itself to the critics with the help of the amazing performances by its impressive cast, especially by Zendaya and Jacob Elordi.

The series holds an 8.4 at IMDb and a certified fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes as well. The show has trended every week on Twitter since its series premiere. The finale night viewership was up 31% from the viewership of its penultimate episode and was up 160% from the series premiere.

Euphoria has already been renewed for a second season and is currently the network’s second most social series just only behind pop-culture giant Game Of Thrones. The episodes of season 1 are said to be averaging a total of 5.6 million viewers.

Euphoria is a close look at a group of high school students as they grapple with issues of drugs, sex, identity, violence, and friendship.

The show stars Zendaya as Rue Bennett alongside Hunter Schafer, Jacob Elordi, Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Algee Smith, Sydney Sweeney, Eric Dane, and Alexa Demie.
