How to watch Euphoria in the US, UK and abroad

Watch the incendiary HBO drama that’s got everyone hooked, no matter where you live, with this handy roundup

Euphoria is the talk of the town. The US teen-drama premiered back in June to rapturous acclaim – and, like any good TV show, some biting think pieces.

The eight-episode series, created by Sam Levinson, is based on an Israeli miniseries of the same name. Levinson based the series partly on his own experiences as a teenager, including his battles with drug addiction.

At times hard to watch, the show is filled with drugs, sex and nudity, so it’s worth keeping that in mind before you start watching it.

Euphoria tells the story of drug-addict Rue Bennet, portrayed flawlessly by Zendaya, best known for her work in Spider-Man: Far From Home and The Greatest Showman.

It starts with her returning from rehab after having overdosed at home. Throughout the series, she grapples with issues surrounding drugs, love, sex, friendship and trauma.

Soon after its US premiere, #EuphoriaHBO trended number one in the US and number three worldwide. This is commendable, given the show stars a relatively unknown cast of teenagers, many of whom are now gaining attention because of their performances.

They include Hunter Schafer (Jules), who plays the perfect antidote to the constantly-anxious Rue. Other stars that have memorable story arcs in Euphoria are Sydney Sweeney (Cassie), Jacob Elordi (Nate), Barbie Ferreira (Kat), Maude Apatow (Lexi), Angus Cloud (Fezco) and Storm Reid (Gia).

The TV series has been generally well-received with an 8.4 rating on IMDB and an 81% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, giving HBO and Sky Atlantic yet another massive hit after Game of Thrones, Chernobyl and Big Little Lies. Not surprisingly, Euphoria was renewed for a second season in July.

The easiest TV show to compare it to would be Skins, but with a ludicrously amped-up production value (no disrespect to Skins, which was iconic in its own low-fi way).

No doubt you’ll be wanting to catch up on the show everyone is talking about. Consequently, we’ve rounded up all the platforms on which you can watch Euphoria, no matter where you’re stationed in the world. You can thank us later.
