Why Was The HBO Series so Expensive?

From an exclusive report from Variety, the high school drama has a huge budget, and surprisingly the series invested from the beginning to make it the talk of the town. Even though the film does not have superheroes or Imperial shuttles, it is believed that each episode of the HBO series costs around $11 million per episode. 

“Even contemporary dramas with lesser-known stars aren’t always cheap: HBO’s “Euphoria” is said to have cost around $11 million per episode, for example. In that case, HBO identified a need for a younger-skewing, buzzy drama and aggressively went after it — at a time when parent WarnerMedia has infused the pay cable giant with more money and a mandate to grow.”
