About The Idol

HBO’s synopsis for the The Idol series reads as follows. “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. Her passions are reignited by Tedros (Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye), a nightclub impresario with a sordid past. Will her romantic awakening take her to glorious new heights or the deepest and darkest depths of her soul?

New episodes of The Idol will premiere on HBO and streaming on Max each subsequent Sunday night following Episode 1’s premiere.
