Fans of The Weeknd have been eagerly awaiting the release of the new music drama series The Idol. The show, which stars both The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp, is set to premiere on HBO and Max (formerly HBO Max) on June 4th. A new music drama series that follows the story of a female pop singer who falls in love with a male R&B star. The Weeknd stars as the male lead, while Lily-Rose Depp plays his love interest. The series is set in Los Angeles and sees the two characters navigate the ups and downs of fame, love, and the music industry. The show has been billed as a steamy ode to the excesses of Hollywood life, with its main themes centering around love, lust, and the price of fame.
The show is created and written by Sam Levinson, who is also behind the hit HBO series ‘Euphoria’. Levinson has made a name for himself as a talented writer and director, with ‘Euphoria’ being lauded for its frank portrayal of teenage life in contemporary America. With his focus now shifting to the world of music, ‘The Idol’ promises to be a provocative and unflinching look at the realities of fame and fortune.
