When is The Idol Season 2 Released? What’s Canceled? Fact Check From HBO!
The Weeknd And Lily-Rose Depp had high hopes for their HBO Original series, The Idol series. With two big names in the series, you’d think the film would be a hit. But things haven’t been going well for the series so far with a very disappointed 25% of viewers at Rotten Tomatoes. With that in mind, will The Idol season 2 be renewed in the future?
Despite the series’ potential, it still couldn’t make a good impression on HBO Max subscribers. But will The Weeknd’s stunning acting be able to convince HBO Max to renew The Idol season 2? Let’s explore.
When Will The Idol Season 2 Release?
There has been talk that The Idol has been cancelled. A post on the site Page Six reports that two anonymous sources close to the production have claimed that the series will not be returning for a second season and was always planned as a limited series only.
However, HBO has shown themselves and refuted these claims saying: “There have been erroneous reports that the decision for the second season of The Idol has already been made,” wrote the network. “Not yet, and we look forward to sharing the next episode with you on Sunday night.”
It is being misreported that a decision on a second season of The Idol has been determined. It has not, and we look forward to sharing the next episode with you Sunday night.
