UPDATE: HBO Confirms 'The Idol' Official Release Date
BLACKPINK’s Jennie, The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp are hitting our screens pretty soon.
Since HBO first announced its new series, The Idol, all eyes have been on the highly-anticipated show’s release date and at long last, we have some answers.
The series, created by Abel Tesfaye (aka The Weeknd) and Euphoria‘s creator Sam Levinson, marks BLACKPINK member Jennie’s acting debut and stars Lily-Rose Depp and Troye Sivan. Set to follow the relationship between Depp and Tesfaye, the show’s official synopsis reads, “The Idol, set against the backdrop of the music industry, centers on a self-help guru and leader of a modern-day cult, who develops a complicated relationship with an up-and-coming pop idol.”
So far, we’ve had a couple of teasers and trailers drop, which also showcase cameos from the likes of Dan Levy, Jane Adams and Hank Azaria. Little else has been shared about the “sleazy love story,” but we can now confirm that it’s set to land on our screens in June.
The Idol will air on HBO on June 4 at 9 pm EST and will be available to stream on HBO Max. While you’re here — check out the latest trailer.
