We’re halfway through the first season of HBO’s new series Euphoria, but we’re already ready for a season two. In addition to a number of graphic and disturbing scenes that show the harsh realities of drug addiction, mental disorders, and cyberbullying of a sexual nature, viewers have been introduced to a slate of interesting, complex characters who undoubtedly have stories well worth exploring in greater depth. Thanks to the powers that be – aka HBO – the teen-drama has officially been renewed for a second season! A total of eight episodes will air this Summer for the first season and, although it’s based on an Israeli miniseries, it’s worth noting that HBO’s official Euphoria page describes it as a “series” rather than a miniseries – which is a fair indication the network has always been open to the possibility of a second season. The biggest factor in deciding whether or not to renew a series is, of course, its ratings. Euphoria is currently at a major advantage due to its time slot – it airs on Sunday evenings directly after the massive hit Big Little Lies. As reported by Variety, the series debuted to “solid, if unspectacular” numbers. A total of 577,000 viewers tuned in to the premiere . But Euphoria performed well on the HBO GO and HBO NOW platforms, bringing total viewership up to approximately one million. POPSUGAR
