What does Euphoria stream on: Netflix? Hulu? Paramount? If you're not familiar with Zendaya's most popular role to date, it's time to get acquainted with Rue Bennett.

The teen drama series follows a high schooler struggling with typical coming-of-age strifes that are exacerbated by her substance abuse. It's raw and at times painful, but Euphoria season 2 completely has fans hooked, especially considering they've been waiting for this sophomore installment since 2019. 

Now that Zendaya's engaging character is the talk of the town, many are wondering how to catch episodes of Euphoria, past and present. We'll tell you everything you need to know in order to stay up-to-date with Rue and the crew.

What does 'Euphoria' stream on?

Season 2 of Euphoria, which has introduced us to new faces, a love triangle and many dramatic scenarios, is available for streaming on HBO Max (subscription options are available below). New episodes air on Sundays at 9pm. 

If you're curious about the show but are unable to sign up for HBO Max, you can watch the first episode of the show for free on the HBO website

How to watch the 'Euphoria' specials:

The Euphoria specials are also available on HBO Max for US audiences, and Sky Atlantic and NOW TV for UK viewers. Consider them a brief appetizer between seasons 1 and 2. 

Part one, "Trouble Don't Last Always," follows Rue after she relapses and runs into a familiar face from Narcotics Anonymous. Part two, "Fuck Anyone Who's Not a Sea Blob," shifts the focus to Jules, Rue's on-again, off-again girlfriend, who decides to face her past trauma with her first therapy visit.

Is 'Euphoria' on Netflix?

Despite misconceptions, Euphoria seasons 1 and 2 is not available on Netflix, but rather on HBO Max. There is one small loophole: the first season is available on Amazon Prime, however, subscribers cannot watch for free—they'll either have to rent or buy the episodes. 

If you love Netflix—and have officially made your way through the most-watched Netflix shows and movies of all time—try these other series on the platform that give off major Euphoria vibes. 

Shows like 'Euphoria' on Netflix:

1. 'The End of the F***king World'

Two teen outcasts set off on a journey throughout the UK. James is a self-described psychopath and Alyssa is the angsty high schooler who is just looking for answers, which is why she and James are on the hunt for her estranged father. 

2. 'Sex Education'

High school is hard enough—imagine if your mother is a sex therapist to boot. It's bound to make those troublesome teen years more difficult than imagined. (Check out everything you need to know about Sex Education season 4.)

3. 'I Am Not Okay With This'

What's more frustrating than high school? Navigating high school with superpowers. Based on Charles Forsman's graphic novel, I Am Not Okay With This is the supernatural answer to all Euphoria fans who are wondering: "What do I watch next?"

Other contenders? Once you're all caught up with Rue and Jules, catch Skins (Hulu), Awkward (Amazon Prime), My Mad Fat Diary (Hulu) and Undone (Amazon Prime).
