HBO released the second teaser for The Idol, starring Lily-Rose Depp and Abel “The Weeknd”.
Co-created by Euphoria creator Sam Levison, Tesfaye and Reza Fahim, The Idol follows a female pop singer who starts a romance with a Los Angeles club owner who is the leader of a secret cult.
The new teaser is quick, showing sequences with lots of skin and debauchery. One character says, “that’s sex. That’s what we’re selling.” The trailer continues with a quick shot of each of the cast members: Suzanna Son, Troye Sivan, Moses Summey, Jane Adams, and Dan Levy. Other members include Jennie Ruby Jane, Eli Roth, Rachel Sennott, Hari Nef, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Mike Dean, Ramsey, and Hank Azaria.
The trailer ends with Lily-Rose Depp’s character asking, “what was the name of that club?” We are then shown a quick glimpse into Depp’s character’s introduction to Tesfaye’s character.
The Idol is set to release later in 2022.
