Despite a few years off the air due to the production challenges of the pandemic, the second season of HBO's Euphoria managed to make an even bigger splash than the first.
The many memes and countless controversies of the new episodes aside, there's also talk that the Zendaya-led teen drama could be an awards contender. If you're looking to revisit or dive into the series' various pharmaceutical (and emotional) highs and lows for the first, the good news is that there are a few different places you'll be able to find Euphoria in Australia.
At the time of writing, both digital and streaming options are available for the series. That said, if you're looking for the most cost-effective way to tune into this Zendaya-led drama, then you'll want to do so via one of the following Australian streaming services.
Where to stream Euphoria (2019) online in Australia
- Foxtel Now
- Foxtel via FOX SHOWCASE
Here in Australia, the first two seasons of Euphoria are available to stream via both Binge and Foxtel Now. The same can also be accessed by Foxtel subscribers via On Demand section of Foxtel's classic pay TV service.
If you're not already a Binge subscriber, the presence of Euphoria is a great excuse to sign up for the service on a 7-day free trial. Beyond the hyped-up high school drama, the streaming service has tons of other great TV shows including House of the Dragon, What We Do In The Shadows and The Rehearsal.
Even if you take your time getting through the series or forget to cancel the trial, the most you'll end up paying for Binge is $18 per month. In comparison, the cost of a Foxtel Now membership that includes the Essentials channel pack (which you'll need if you want to watch Euphoria) starts at $25 per month.
If you're looking to swap NBN providers, it's worth noting that all Telstra NBN plans currently include two free months of Binge. This offer is available to customers new to Binge. You'll pay $18 per month after your two free months are up, but can always cancel.
Here are Telstra's NBN plans:
When does Euphoria season 3 release in Australia?
If previous seasons are any indication, expect the third season of Euphoria to become streamable in Australia at the same time it premiers elsewhere.
At the time of writing, HBO has yet to line up any sort of firm timing for when the drama will return. The second season of Euphoria arrived roughly three years after the first. However, in that case, the COVID-19 pandemic did understandably blow out the original timeline for filming and production.
Assuming that the third season of Euphoria follows a less chaotic production schedule and that showrunner Sam Levinson isn't too busy with his new series (The Idol), Aussies could see a third season of Euphoria kick off as soon as the tail-end of 2023.
That said, the relative silence from both HBO and the cast of the show may suggest that a 2024 return could be more likely. In either case, Aussies should expect to find the third season of Euphoria when it arrives via the same streaming services that currently carry the first two seasons.
Back in 2020, Foxtel signed a multi-year licensing agreement with WarnerMedia securing access to HBO and select HBO Max Original content for the foreseeable future. Until that arrangement expires, expect to find both the current and future seasons of Euphoria on both Binge and Foxtel Now.

What is Euphoria (2019) about?
Created by Sam Levinson and loosely based on the Israeli miniseries of the same name, Euphoria is an American drama series that follows the highs, lows and interpersonal drama within of a group of teenagers at a high school.
While the series is very much an ensemble, the central figure here is Rue (Zendaya), a young woman struggling to balance the demands of high school, her first real romantic relationship and a catastrophic addiction to opioids.
There are echoes of other series where edgy high school-aged characters push on the boundaries of likability and audience comfort (see also: Skins) here, Euphoria's diverse cast, mesmerizing cinematography, compelling performances and undiluted commitment to be extremely extra all of the time help it appeal to those who usually wouldn't bother with it given the specific genre and setting.
What is Binge?
Binge is Foxtel's second streaming service. Rather than adopt the cable-style channel packs model seen with Foxtel Now, Binge has a more Netflix-inspired subscription system. You pay a monthly fee, you get access to everything in the Binge library plus the features associated with your membership tier.
