Sam Levinson, Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye, and Reza Fahim are the composers of the drama television program ‘The Idol’ which is shot in the United States. The series is essenced on blooming superstar Lily-Rose Depp and her complex relationship with personal empowerment and cult leader Tedros (Tesfaye).
The Idol approaches Jocelyn (Lily-Rose Depp), an aspiring pop idol who promises to recuperate her title as the sexiest pop idol in America after having a burnout that forces her last tour to be delayed. She also starts a complex relationship with Tedros (Abel “The Weeknd”), a personal empowerment and the leader of a modern cult.
Will There Be A Season 2 Of The Idol?
Although there hasn’t been an official statement for season 2, there are various factors to consider concerning the potential story of the series. Additionally, The Idol has been advertised as a limited series, which conveys that there might not be any editorial future plans for the plot to continue past season 1’s six episodes. The show had some adverse reviews before it was released, so it’s conceivable that HBO has to look into releasing the next season based on the reviews after the release of the show.
The Idol currently has a dismal 25 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and several reviews have made remarks about how hard it tries to be terrifying. However, as we have formerly seen, audiences and critics are not every time in agreement, so only time will tell if there will be a shooting of season 2.
Release Date, Cast, Characters
We are unquestionable that if there is a season 2 of The Idol, the original cast will be present in the show as the second season will be the continuation of the first season. The original cast which includes Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye, Lily-Rose Depp, Suzanna Son, Troye Sivan, Moses Sumney, Jane Adams, Dan Levy, Jennie Ruby Jane, Eli Roth, Rachel Sennott, Hari Nef, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Mike Dean, Ramsey, and Hank Azaria.
We can approximate when the second season would possibly premiere after the shooting of the season 1 filming schedule. The Weeknd had to depart to play at Coachella and start his After Hours Til Dawn Tour, and director and executive producer Amy Seimetz quit the project delinquent to creative differences, which required rewrites and reshoots for season 1. Season 1 began filming way earlier in November 2021.
The entire schedule, from the start of production to the debut of its first episode, took more than a year. We might be looking at a possible release date of the end of 2024 or the start of 2025 if the cast begins shooting season 2 soon after season 1 finishes airing. The audience has to wait and see if it receives the approval.
