Drake has received his first ever Emmy Awards nomination as an executive producer of HBO’s Euphoria.
Euphoria is currently nominated for a total of 15 Primetime Emmy and Creative Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Sydney Sweeney.
According to Variety, the show was renewed for a third season. 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. In addition, the Season 2 premiere was the No. 1 most social premium cable episode since the “Game of Thrones” finale in May 2019.
The 2022 Emmys take place on September 12.
