Are you looking for something to fill the void in your life that the emotion of euphoria left? You are in luck because The Idol is here to hold you over till the next episode.
The Idol is a racy series that was created by Sam Levinson, who was also responsible for the creation of Euphoria, and Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye. It has been described as “the sleaziest love story in all of Hollywood.” Euphoria, in essence, walked in order to allow The Idol to run.
As of right now, we have access to a number of teaser trailers, both of which have provided us with a few key details, including an overview of the film’s impressive cast. Although Lily-Rose Depp and The Weeknd will be playing the primary parts, there will be a large number of other well-known actors and actresses in the film as well.
The most recent sneak peek was released on the 21st of August, and we already can’t wait to dive headfirst into this sinister and convoluted narrative. Here is everything that we are aware of concerning the upcoming season of The Idol on HBO:
The Idol Release Date
Even though there is not yet an official release date for The Idol on HBO, the trailers for the show have been advertising it as “coming soon.”
Nevertheless, in the comments section of the previews, HBO has provided a link to a programming video and said, “find out what else is new on HBO in 2022.” This provides a clue that the show may be released later on in this year. Based on this, we may anticipate that the release date will be in the fall or winter of 2022.
When we have further information, we will update this story.
The Idol Cast
In addition to Lily-Rose Depp and The Weeknd, there will be a number of other well-known performers there. According to a statement made by Deadline, Suzanna Son, Troye Sivan, Moses Sumney, Jane Adams, Dan Levy, Jennie Ruby Jane, Eli Roth, Rachel Sennot, Hari Nef, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Mike Dean, Ramsey, and Hank Azaria would be joining Lily-Rose and The Weekend on stage.

The Idol Story Or Plot
As is the case with the specifics of the characters, the plot of The Idol on HBO is largely unknown, but the racy teasers have undoubtedly set the stage for a wild ride, in the same vein as Sam Levinson’s earlier work.
According to Deadline, the plot of the drama series centers on “a female pop artist who starts a romance with an enigmatic L.A. club owner who is the leader of a hidden cult.” These roles are performed, respectively, by Lily-Rose and The Weeknd.
On their own Instagram accounts, Lily-Rose and The Weeknd have started posting photos that were taken during the event. You can also get further updates by following the official account for The Idol on Instagram.
The Idol Trailer
At the time that this article was being written, there were actually two trailers available.
The first teaser trailer was made available for viewing on July 16; The Weeknd gave the world premiere of it on July 16 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, as he was performing on his After Hours Til Dawn Tour.
The second teaser trailer, which was published online on the 21st of August, begins with the lines “from the gutters of Hollywood.” The character played by The Weeknd opens the teaser by greeting the person on the other end of the phone, who we may assume is Lily-character, Rose by saying “Hello, Angel.”
From that point on, a number of sequences feature gloomy strolling shots, screaming fans, sensuous dance routines, and Dan Levy’s voice saying, “This is sex?”
