The series has received numerous accolades, including a nomination for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series.

As a child, Fezco was taken in by his grandmother, who introduced him to the drug trade. In a continuation of a scene from the season one finale, Ashtray kills Mouse with a hammer. On New Year's Eve, an intoxicated Rue accompanies Fez and Ashtray to an intense drug deal, in which Rue and a new character, Faye, are violently forced to strip down to prove that they aren't wearing wires, before attending a large house party. At a convenience store, a drunken Cassie runs into Nate, who offers her a ride to the party; upon arriving, the two have sex in a bathroom and are nearly caught by Maddy, forcing Cassie to hide in the bathtub. Rue takes a concoction of drugs with a boy named Elliot and nearly enters cardiac arrest before taking Adderall to stabilize her heartrate. Outside, she and Jules reunite, where Rue tells Jules that she relapsed the night Jules left her at the train station. Later, the two confess their feelings for each other and kiss. Fezco has a conversation with Lexi and they exchange phone numbers. He then confronts Nate and viciously beats him until the other partygoers intervene and stop him.

Levinson has served as Euphoria's showrunner since its premiere, and has written every episode.[36] He has directed every episode except the Pilot and the season one episodes "03 Bonnie and Clyde" and "The Next Episode",[37][38] which were directed by Jennifer Morrison and Pippa Bianco. Zendaya will probably direct the third season's episode.[39]

The production was given a pilot order on March 13, 2018,[40] and on July 30, it was announced that HBO had given the production a series order.[36] The series was renewed for a second season on July 11, 2019.[41]

Before the series' second season, HBO ordered two specials.

On February 4, 2022, HBO renewed the series for a third season.[53] In September 2022, HBO's CEO Casey Bloys said the series could go beyond four seasons, and would not end after season three.[54] Production of season three started in February 2023,[55] aiming for a late 2023 release,[56] but according to a Vogue interview with Apatow, filming is set to start in the second half of 2023.[57]

In April 2020, Kelvin Harrison Jr. joined the cast, but by May 2021, he had dropped out due to scheduling conflicts as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.[61][62] In August, Dominic Fike, Minka Kelly, and Demetrius 'Lil Meech' Flenory Jr. were added to the cast.[63] On February 22, 2022, it was announced that Smith had quit the series after starring in two episodes of season 2.[64] On August 24, 2022, Ferreira announced via Instagram story that she had decided to leave the series.[65]

Grant High School in Los Angeles stands in for the fictional East Highland High School.[66] According to the California Film Commission, the first season of Euphoria received $8,378,000 in incentive tax credits. The first season was filmed over a combined total of 104 days; the second season's production costs totaled $96,685,000 after a total of 176 filming days.

For season one, the show was shot digitally. Starting with season two, the show was shot on Kodak Ektachrome film stock, which cinematographer Marcell Rév attributed to a desire to invoke "some sort of memory of high school."[72]

For season three, Rue's sobriety journey, Zendaya opened up about exploring characters outside high school,[73] with the filming locations of New York City, Singapore, and Warner Bros. Studios lots in Burbank and Leavesden.[citation needed]

Many of the episode titles for season one are references to late-1990s and early-2000s song titles that correlate to the episode itself. For instance, "'03 Bonnie and Clyde" is a reference to the 2002 Jay-Z and Beyoncé song of the same name. The loyal relationship between Nate Jacobs and Maddy Perez in the episode mirrors that between Jay-Z and Beyoncé in the song.[74][6] For season two, many of the episode titles are references to books and quotes.

On Rotten Tomatoes, the episode has a score of 97%, with an average rating of 8.44/10 based on 23 critical reviews.

Levinson acknowledged the controversies over the series' content, saying that some parents will be "totally fucking freaked out".[122] Augustine Frizzell, who directed the series' pilot episode, said that the explicit content should help foster a conversation between parents and teenagers.[123] Levinson also said that he hopes the series "opens up a dialogue" due to the "disconnect between parents and teenagers".[124] Zendaya issued a warning both before the series and season 2 premiere about its "deeply emotional subject matter".[125] HBO voiced objections to some sexually graphic scenes, but said it would not interfere with the series' "creative process".[122] The series includes viewer discretion warnings and a website for mental health and other support group resources.[126][127] The series has reportedly been censored for sexual or violent content in countries like Malaysia,[128] the Philippines,[129] Singapore,[130] and Vietnam.

Euphoria's score was composed by English singer, songwriter, and record producer Labrinth.[131] The song "All for Us", performed by Labrinth and Zendaya, is hinted at throughout season 1 before being performed as a large musical number at the end of the season finale.[132] Labrinth makes an appearance in the series alongside Zendaya to perform their song "I'm Tired".[133]

The series also makes extensive[134] use of popular music, including hip hop, trap, R&B, experimental, indie rock, standards and doo-wop, with some episodes featuring over 20 songs.[135][136] For their work on Euphoria's first season, music supervisors Jen Malone (who also supervises the FX series Atlanta) and Adam Leber won the 2020 Guild of Music Supervisors Award for Best Music Supervision in a Television Drama.[137]
