Will there be a second season for The Young Pope TV show on HBO? The lavish political drama series is a co-production of HBO, Canal+, and Sky Atlantic so it’s unclear how much of an impact that HBO’s involvement has on the future of the series. We do know that a second season is already in development so a season two renewal may already be a done deal. Could The Young Pope be cancelled? Stay tuned.
A historical drama, The Young Pope TV series tells the controversial story of Pius XIII (Jude Law), born Lenny Belardo, and his early days as Pope. The youngest and first American pope in history, his ascension was orchestrated by the Vatican Secretary of State (Silvio Orlando). Lenny shuns him and looks to Don Tommaso (Marcello Romolo) to share details on the motives of those in his inner circle. Lenny’s mentor (James Cromwell) stews about being passed over and his friend since childhood, Sister Mary (Diane Keaton), is flown in to serve as his chief advisor. The rest of the HBO cast includes Javier Cámara, Scott Shepherd, Cécile de France, Ludivine Sagnier, and Toni Bertorelli.
