This won’t be The Weeknd’s first transition into animation. In 2020, he appeared as himself on an episode of American Dad and on an episode of Robot Chicken.
According to the singer’s IMDB page, the Grammy award-winner is set to star in and produce a TV series called The Idol, focusing on a self-help guru and leader of a modern-day cult who enters into a complicated relationship with a rising pop idol.
The Simpsons airs on Fox this Sunday at 8 pm ET.
