    ‘The Idol’ Actress Da’Vine Joy Randolph Remains Optimistic About The Show Getting Another Season Amidst Cancellation Rumours

    Lily Rose-Depp and The Weeknd starrer ‘The Idol’ is hanging by a thread. With every episode, it continues to sink below the lowest depths. Gratuitous scenes of sexual violence and questionable ethics around consent are making people turn away from their screens. 

    But all is well, says Da’Vine Joy Randolph. ‘The Idol’ actress has reassured the remaining viewers that the show is going to have another season. She said the team has always been clear about expanding the show’s story over another season. Joy Randolph isn’t taking the cancellation talk too seriously.

    HBO’s ‘The Idol’ was supposed to go on for six episodes. But the show has lost its standing since its Cannes premiere and HBO debut. Moreover, there have been reports of the show not returning for another season. Da’Vine Joy Randolph, who plays Destiny, Jocelyn’s co-manager, has jumped in to present a clear view of the show’s progression.

    Joy Randolph told Variety about the show’s aspirations to have more than one season. She dispelled the cancellation talks and told the outlet, “I think that everyone’s intention is to have a second season. This was never intended to be a limited series. Nothing is official, but HBO is quite happy.”

    The Parents Television and Media Council is pressuring HBO to cancel ‘The Idol.’ The organization has taken offense at the depiction of ‘torture p**n’ and ‘s***al abuse.’ This call for necessary action comes right after the news of ‘The Idol’ wrapping its first season an episode earlier. 

    Despite the show’s increasingly problematic premise, Lily Rose-Depp wholeheartedly defends her right to be naked on screen. In a recent interview with The Sun, she talked about how filming sex scenes for ‘The Idol’ has been cathartic for her. She’s not ready to say goodbye to Jocelyn.
