HBO has released the first trailer for The Idol, the upcoming drama that stars Lily Rose-Depp, the 23-year-old model and actress of Johnny Depp and French singer Vanessa Paradis.
In addition to Rose-Depp, The Idol — which comes from Euphoria creator Sam Levinson — stars The Weeknd.
The series certainly hasn’t been without controversy, as a report from back in early March accused series creator Sam Levinson of writing scenes that were not filmed because they were too “physically violent and/or sexually disturbing,” according to Rolling Stone.
Nevertheless, HBO is clearly deciding to move forward with the show as they not only released the first trailer but also announced that the series would premiere on Sunday, June 4.
HBO is certainly on another hot streak this year, as they kicked off the 2023 calendar with The Last of Us, which lead to the premiere of the final season of Succession.
Bill Hader’s dramedy masterpiece Barry — which premiered its final season over the weekend — will be taking the Sunday night reigns off of Succession in May before giving the night over to The Idol.
In addition to Rose-Depp and The Weekend, The Idol also stars 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, Hank Azaria, Melanie Liburd, Tunde Adebimpe, Elizabeth Bekley, Nico Hiraga, Maya Eshet, Tyson Ritter, and the last Anne Heche in her final television role.
The Idol will premiere on HBO on Sunday, June 4. The Idol will be Rose-Depp’s first television role, as she’s only appeared in film projects so far, such as The King, Voyagers, and Wolf. She’s also set to star alongside Bill Skarsgard, Nicholas Hoult, Emma Corrin, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Willem Dafoe in Robert Eggers’ upcoming remake of Nosferatu.
