The scandalous and visually sensational Sam Levinson series has achieved growing popularity.

The Emmy-winning high school show was a shoo-in for a junior year renewal.

Along with the intoxicating amount of social media traction and buzz it generates on a week-by-week basis, the first three installments of Season 2 have nearly doubled in per-episode viewership in comparison to its freshman season.
Season 2’s premiere episode on Jan. 9 has garnered 14 million total viewers across HBO and HBO Max to date. That is close to an increase of 100% from the 6.6 million average audience size that was drawn by Season 1’s episodes during its summer 2019 runtime.
The Season 2 premiere was the No. 1 most social premium cable episode since the “Game of Thrones” finale in May 2019.
