There has been a lot of talk about when The Idol will premiere online ever since HBO announced it. It has been announced that the sinister new series will debut on HBO Max on June 5.
There has been a lot of negative press about the show recently. Both creator Sam Levinson and star actor The Weeknd have been accused of contributing to a hostile work atmosphere. According to Rolling Stone, the initial scripts also had numerous violent scenes that may be best described as the author’s “rape fantasy.”
Lily-Rose Depp, who plays the major role in The Idol, has issued a statement in defense of her director, Barry Levinson, despite allegations of a hostile work atmosphere. Never before have I felt so encouraged and valued in a creative environment.
The Weeknd also responded to the allegations on Twitter, sharing a clip from the show that pokes fun at Rolling Stone.

The Idol is set in the music industry and was co-created by Abel Tesfaye (The Weeknd), Euphoria director Sam Levison, and Reza Fahim. According to Variety’s summary, the tale centers on a modern-day cult leader who has an intricate relationship with a rising pop idol.

Does The Idol Have a Teaser?
The most recent of The Idol’s four teaser trailers was released on April 17th. The video’s thunderous score, Britney Spears’s “Gimme More,” is an obvious allusion to the pop star’s meteoric rise to fame and cultural icon status. Someone somebody tells me, “When was the last truly fucking nasty, nasty bad pop girl?”
As Troye Sivan’s character puts it. Jocelyn (Depp), who is enticed by Tesfaye’s character into becoming the Trojan horse of pop to transmit whatever message he is attempting to sell, is the obvious choice for the next victim. Jocelyn, on the verge of what seems to be a massive comeback tour, gets caught up in the normal pitfalls of the pop star lifestyle, including the leak of an s*x tape and excessive drug and s*x use.
“You got the best job in the world. You should be having way more fun,” while images of the two of them partying and s*xing it up in nightclubs, automobiles, and the studio play in the background.
Friends are worried that Jocelyn has been “brainwashed” by Tesfaye’s role, but she insists, “He’s really, like, unlocked something in me.” The character played by Da’Vine Joy Randolph quips, “I ain’t seen no shit like this since the ’90s.”
The Idol: What’s It All About?
There is currently no available synopsis for The Idol. From what we can tell, though, the program follows Jocelyn, a female pop artist whose recent tour is derailed by a mental breakdown.
She is dogged in her pursuit to be recognized as America’s hottest pop star. When she meets Tedros, a mysterious L.A. club owner and cult leader, her fire is rekindled.
