The The Idol trailer is not for the faint-hearted. Consider this your warning.

Debuting Sunday, June 4, 2023, The Idol is co-created by Sam Levison (Euphoria). HBO’s new drama series stars Lily-Rose Depp (Yoga Hosers, Tusk, Voyagers), Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye, and Reza Fahim.

Here’s the official logline for The Idol:

After a nervous breakdown derailed Jocelyn’s (Lily-Rose Depp) last tour, she’s determined to claim her rightful status as the greatest and sexiest pop star in America. Tedros, a nightclub owner with a dark past (Abel “The Weeknd”), reignites her passions. Sam Levinson is back at it, folks!

Euphoria is one of the most daring shows in recent television history, and The Idol looks to test the limits of HBO once again. The Idol Teaser shows a dark world fuelled by money, pleasures in the flesh, superiority issues, and a desire for pop culture to be on fire. Will you be tuning into The Idol?
