The Idol Episode 6: Why It Won’t Be Happening
Unfortunately, there will not be an Episode 6 of The Idol.
The series officially concluded with five episodes, although many viewers were expecting a sixth episode. According to TVLine, a source close to the show’s production revealed that “The season ended up being five episodes when it was all said and done after Sam [Levinson] took over and made significant changes. The story only ended up requiring 5.”
Adding to the disappointment, The Idol has not been renewed for a second season. However, there is still hope for a potential return. One of the show’s actors mentioned that the series was “intentionally” laying the groundwork for a future continuation.
