Is The Idol renewed for season 2?

Responding to some of the statements regarding the series not being renewed, HBO shared a statement on their official Twitter PR account debunking the myths about the renewal of The Idol season 2. The statement said, “ It is being misreorted that a decision on second season of The Idol has been determined. It has not, and we look forward to sharing the next episode with you Sunday night.” Hence, according to the statement given by the network, it has not yet been “determined” whether or not The Idol will be renewed for a second season.

Two of the anonymous sources close to the production had quoted about the cancellation of the series. According to one of the sources, the series was, “never meant to be a long-time running show, it was always a limited series.” At the same time, the second source said that “the door is definitely still open” about more episodes of The Idol.

It is still unknown whether the show has been renewed or canceled for the second season. But we still got a few episodes in line.
