The Weeknd To Star In His Own HBO series |2021

Abel Tesfaye, professionally known as The Weeknd, is one of the biggest artists of the decade right now. After giving us one by one successful hit songs, Tesfaye is all set to co-write and produce his own show for HBO. Let us get into it.

After releasing the critically and commercially successful album, After Hours, and having three number one songs: “Blinding Lights”, “Heartless” and “Save Your Tears Remix” last year, The Weeknd is now trying his hand in acting and writing as well.

As we know, the 31-year-old singer is very good at telling stories through his music lyrically and visually, he is going to team up with Sam Levinson and Reza Fahim, to create a new show on HBO, titled as “The Idol.”

Sam Levinson is already known for making the currently successful HBO show, Euphoria, starring Zendaya and Hunter Schafer in lead roles. The show also got six Emmy nominations, and Zendaya also won the Best Actress in a leading role, making her the youngest actress to win in that category till date.

Euphoria has been critically acclaimed for being extremely relatable to the teenagers and for its aesthetics and storyline. While Reza Fahim is a former nightlife entrepreneur turned writer who is also The Weekend’s producing partner.

The story line for “The Idol” is said to be cult centric with a very dark theme. It is said that the story will be about a female pop star, who will start a romantic relationship with an enigmatic LA club owner, who is actually the leader of a secret cult.

Other producers and writers working for the show includes Joseph Epstein, Ashley Levinson, Kevin Turen, Aaron L. Gilbert, Mary Laws, etc. If it is an HBO show, then it is definitely assumed to be a good show, as it is the network that gave us one of the most epic series of the decade, Game of Thrones, but let us forget the horrible final season. Also, Chernobyl was another critically acclaimed show of the network.

Imagine what all these talented people are going to give us, and we hope that it is good as we are expecting it right now.

This is not the first time The Weeknd is going to act on screen. He was also seen in the movie, Uncut Gems, with Adam Sandler, and recently voiced himself in the hit animated series “American Dad”. Not only that, he also co-wrote that episode of the show, and sang a hilarious song called, “I’m a Virgin”.

We have also seen Tesfaye give brilliant performances in his music videos. Like, have you seen the music videos of “Save Your Years” and “Until I Bleed Out?” I mean, his expressions were amazing in those music videos. Also, his songs like “Snowchild”, “Call Out My Name”, “The Hills”, etc beautifully tells a certain story, and we are pretty sure The Weeknd is going to give his best in this new HBO series.

Lately, he was also spotted having dinner with Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie, and there might be something sparkling between them. After Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid, is it Angelina Jolie now?

It really looks like HBO is trying to give us the best they can to apologize for what they did to Game of Thrones in the final season. The second season of Euphoria is also under production, and the prequel of Game of Thrones, titled as House of the Dragon, is also going through development right now. We hope they hit out TV screens soon, and we will enjoy our own Home Box Office.
