One of the most controversial shows during its production is now just days away from its premiere. Last month, HBO officially revealed the premiere date for The Idol almost a year after revealing the first teaser for the show. If it doesn't land into another controversy, ‘The Idol’ will release on June 4 on HBO and Max, worldwide.
Interestingly, HBO has removed the last trailer from its official account. Although it might not mean anything serious. You can watch the trailer above, which has been uploaded to our official YouTube account.
‘The Idol’ is led by The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp, who is making her full-time TV debut with this show. The actress has described the show as a Wild Ride that she enjoyed with The Weeknd, who she describes as a really good friend who's had her back.
The series is co-created by Sam Levinson (HBO’s “Euphoria”), Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye, and Reza Fahim, and stars The Weeknd as Tedros and Lily-Rose Depp as Jocelyn. THE IDOL will premiere at this year’s Festival de Cannes on May 22 at 4.30 PM EST.
The six-episode series will follow Jocelyn (Lily-Rose Depp), who is desperate to reclaim her rightful place as America's greatest and sexiest pop diva after a nervous breakdown wrecked her last tour.

Will her romantic awakening lead her to beautiful new heights or to the deepest and darkest recesses of her soul?
