The Weeknd’s much-delayed, controversial show, The Idol, finally has a premiere date. It’s set to arrive on HBO on Sunday, June 4, a few weeks after debuting out-of-competition at the Cannes Film Festival. There’s also a new teaser trailer for the show, which you can watch below.
Co-created by Sam Levinson, Abel ‘The Weeknd’ Tesfaye, and Reza Fahim, The Idol stars Tesfaye as a nightclub owner and cult leader alongside Lily-Rose Depp, who plays a pop star whose career has been derailed. Other cast members include Troye Sivan, Dan Levy, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Eli Roth, Hari Nef, Jane Adams, Jennie Ruby Jane, Mike Dean, Moses Sumney, Rachel Sennott, Ramsey, Suzanna Son, and Hank Azaria.
