viewers of Idol had a shocked reaction after watching the latest episode of the controversial HBO series.
The film, which was released in the UK on Sky and NOW, has been criticized for its explicit pornography, and Sunday’s episode (June 25) featured more vulgar scenes featuring The Weeknd’s character Tedros. In addition to starring in the series, the “Blinding Lights” musician also serves as a co-creator, along with Happinessby Sam Levinson.
However, for another reason viewers complained on Sunday – with many apparently unaware until now that next week’s episode would be the season’s finale. the first season of Idol consisted of only five episodes, an unusually small total for an American feature-length series.
At the end of the episode, when the preview for next week’s finale was revealed, viewers reacted in disbelief.
Fans have expressed disappointment with the show’s coming to an end on social media.
“They should have spent less time on sex scenes and more time on story as tf is the end of the season next week and we are ONLY getting into the action,” one person wrote.
“I’m sorry, next week is the LAST of Idol???” another commented. “The story is just VERY beginning to unfold. Sam Levinson has lost his mind.”
“At the end of the season…” Wait…only FIVE episodes on this damn show?? another asked skeptically.
“There’s no way they’re saying next week is the last episode of the season,” another commented.
A second season renewal is still in the air. While reports earlier this month claimed that HBO has decided not to launch another season of IdolUS network released a statement on social media to debunk these claims.
ONE Page Six The report on June 15 quoted an insider as saying, “This was never a series, it was always… a limited series.”
However, another source cited in the report asserts: “It’s definitely not a decision.” [yet]. At this point, this is normal in our process… we’ve only been on two episodes.
On Twitter, the official HBO account candidly addressed the rumors. “There is misinformation that a decision about the second season of Idol identified,” HBO wrote in a tweet.
“No, and we look forward to sharing the next episode with you on Sunday night.”
Idol can be streamed right now on Max in the US and on Sky and NOW in the UK.
