The new HBO series Euphoria is already controversial before it’s even aired. You’ll likely want to watch the series live on HBO so you don’t miss a thing, so here’s a look at what time and channel it will air tonight, including on the West Coast, which differs slightly from other regions.
DATE: Sunday, June 16, 2019
TIME: Euphoria airs at 10 p.m. Eastern tonight (9 p.m. Central.) This is an hour later than the Game of Thrones time slot. If you’re watching on the West Coast, Euphoria will air on TV at 10 p.m. Pacific, but it will be available on HBO GO and NOW starting at 7 p.m. Pacific.
Yes, this means that if you are in California or anywhere else on the West Coast that’s under the Pacific time zone, then you can only watch Euphoria with the rest of the country if you tune into a streaming version such as HBO NOW or HBO GO. If you’re streaming, you can watch starting at 7 p.m. Pacific (or any time after.) But if you prefer to watch on TV, you’ll have to wait until HBO West airs the episode at 10 p.m. Pacific, which is a few hours after everyone else in the U.S. gets to see it.

The official description for Euphoria episode one reads: “Series premiere. Rue is a teenage girl who experiences, along with her high school classmates, the ups and downs of love and friendship in a world of drugs, sex, violence and social networks.”
According to HBO, this series navigates love and friendships and is an adaptation of an Israeli series by the same name. The series is produced in partnership with A24.
HBO’s description of the series reads: “The coming-of-age narrative, exploring the teenage landscape of substance-enhanced parties and anxiety-ridden day-to-day life with empathy and candor. The series follows 17-year-old Rue Bennett (Zendaya), a drug addict fresh from rehab, who’s struggling to make sense of her future. Her life changes dramatically when she meets Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer), a trans girl who recently moved to town following her parents’ divorce, and like Rue is searching for where she belongs.”
The cast includes Zendaya, Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith, and Sydney Sweeney.
