The show has had some big changes behind the scenes recently. The change in creative direction led to the director, Amy Seimetz, leaving the show.

“‘The Idol’s’ creative team continues to build, refine, and evolve their vision for the show and they have aligned on a new creative direction,” HBO said in a statement to Variety in April. “The production will be adjusting its cast and crew accordingly to best serve this new approach to the series. We look forward to sharing more information soon.”

The Weeknd is currently finishing up his After Hours til Dawn Tour.

Meanwhile, HBO is preparing for the release of the high-profile “Game of Thrones” prequel “House of the Dragon.” The show premiered on Sunday evening.
