HBO Renewed Euphoria For Season 2 In July 2019
Before the popular HBO series had even completed its first season back in the summer of 2019, HBO gave Sam Levinson and company the greenlight to proceed with Euphoria Season 2. Shortly after the airing of “Shook Ones, Pt. II” (a nod to Mobb Deep’s smash hit from the group’s 1995 sophomore effort The Infamous), the premium cable outlet gave the show’s creator the opportunity to further expand the world of Euphoria, per Deadline.
At the time, the series was drawing in 609,000 viewers in HBO’s 10 p.m. slot, and had continued to grow with each passing episode, so much so that it became one of the most-watched TV shows in 2019. With numbers like that and permission to proceed with the gripping and transfixing narrative, things looked to be on the up and up for Euphoria.
