Time to meet The New Pope. HBO has just released the first photo (see above) from their upcoming follow-up series to The Young Pope.
From Paolo Sorrentino, the new drama will be “set in the world of the modern papacy” and star Jude Law, John Malkovich, Silvio Orlando, Javier Cámara, Cécile de France, Ludivine Sagnier, Maurizio Lombardi, Henry Goodman, Ulrich Thomsen, Mark Ivanir, and Massimo Ghini.
HBO has not yet announced a premiere date for The New Pope.
What do you think? Did you see The Young Pope? Will you watch the follow-up series?
I can not wait for the follow up series! The Young Pope was fantastic and the ending left me wanting more. I am Catholic and I am not offended, the only part that bothered me was the original opening of the show, when they blew up the Pope. I am anxiously awaiting the for what is next and I am thrilled that Jude Law is still involved.
Eagerly awaiting it’s return. Kind of surprised the Catholic Church hasn’t raised a stink about this portrayal of their revered leader. It has been very well written & acted so far. I hope season 2 holds up to this same level.
Yes. Adored the young pope with the very charming Jude Law. Also a really favorite of mine is John Malcovitz. Can’t wait for the next series.
