A new trailer for The Idol, an upcoming HBO show starring the singer, just released

A new trailer for The Idol, an upcoming HBO, has been just released. The drama series was created by Abel "The Weeknd" Tesfaye alongside Sam Levinson, creator of the Emmy-winning HBO series Euphoria.
The new trailer says the series will take us to "the gutters of Hollywood," showing the darker side of the glitz and glamour we normally see as outsiders. Tesfaye plays Tedros, a club owner and cult leader who starts dating Jocelyn, a new pop star looking for a big break, played by Lily-Rose Depp.

Dubbed "the sleaziest love story in all of Hollywood," the series will depict the classic Hollywood tale of sex, drugs and partying. Little else is known about the show so far, but with Tesfaye and Levinson behind it, it's already highly anticipated. Tesfaye made his acting debut in the 2019 film Uncut Gems, but The Idol serves as his first leading role. South Korean singer Jennie Ruby Jane will also make her acting debut on the show.

The teaser reveals a star-studded cast, which includes Lily-Rose Depp, Troye Sivan, BLACKPINK's Jennie Ruby Jane, Dan Levy and many more. The new trailer was first shown at Tesfaye's concert this past weekend at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, and it has racked up over one million YouTube views in just a few days. It comes after the first teaser for the series was released last month.


Where can I watch The Idol HBO?

You can sign up for HBO Max through HBO's website, or download the app to supported devices through your TV, digital or mobile provider. A standalone HBO Max subscription starts at $9.99 per month for the ad-enabled tier, or you can pay $14.99 for the ad-free tier.

You can stream The Idol with an HBO Max subscription when it premieres later this year, but no official release date has been announced yet.
