While The Young Pope TV show will not been renewed for a second season on HBO, it isn’t exactly cancelled either. Instead, THR reports HBO has ordered The New Pope — a follow-up to The Young Pope — from creator and director Paolo Sorrentino.
The Young Pope told the story of Lenny Belardo’s (Jude Law) ascension as Pope Pius XIII. The HBO TV series cast also includes Diane Keaton, Silvio Orlando, Javier Cámara, Scott Shepherd, Cécile de France, Ludivine Sagnier, Toni Bertorelli, and James Cromwell. There is no word yet, on who will return for The New Pope TV series.
Back in October of 2016, we reported Sorrentino was already working on a second installment.
According to THR, The New Pope production is casting for the title role, and production is slated for late next year, in Italy.
What do you think? Did you watch The Young Pope? Will you return for The New Pope on HBO.
