The Idol: What is it all about?

The Idol, which is directed by Sam Levinson and co-created by Abel 'The Weeknd' Tesfaye and Reza Fahim, is based on the music industry in Los Angeles. The show revolves around a female pop singer (Depp) who develops feelings for a mysterious L.A. nightclub owner (Tesfaye), the head of a covert cult. The Idol has been one of the most talked-about shows of the year thanks to its high-profile ensemble and Tesfaye's first significant screen performance.

Speaking about the ongoing controversy surrounding the show, Randolph said “I wouldn’t even be a part of no mess like that,” she said. “So for me, I just let people think what they think. But I was excited. We’re not even out yet, and people are getting worked up.” Apart from Randolph, the show boasts of talented actors like Tesfaye, Depp, Moses Sumney, Suzanna Son, Troye Sivan, Jane Adams, Dan Levy, Jennie Ruby Jane, Eli Roth, Mike Dean, Rachel Sennot, Hari Nef, and South Korean artist Jennie Kim.
