[ # ] HBO puts The Idol out of our misery
August 28th, 2023 under HBO Max, The Weeknd

The Idol is one of the most hated new shows of the year. So what I am about to tell you won’t surprise you. HBO cancelled the series that starred The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp after one season.

“The Idol was one of HBO’s most provocative original programs, and we’re pleased by the strong audience response,” an HBO spokesperson said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “After much thought and consideration, HBO, as well as the creators and producers have decided not to move forward with a second season. We’re grateful to the creators, cast, and crew for their incredible work.”

Incredible work? Who the fuck are they kidding? It was shit. The Weeknd sucked. And he wasn’t even the worst one. That title goes to Hank Azaria. His fake Israeli accent was beyond dreadful, as was his acting.

The only positive parts were Depp and Da’Vine Joy Randolph.

You know, I wonder if the series would have gotten a second season if they had gone with the original concept and not listened to The Weeknd’s vision. It was a mistake like his ego. So, I guess you can say he played himself—someone with an ego who has nothing to back it up.
