From Oscar®-winning filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino, The New Pope picks up where the previous series left off, with Jude Law’s Lenny Belardo, known as Pope Pius XIII, in a coma after an unexpected heart attack and the Holy See searching for his replacement. Out of the fray of competing interests rises Sir John Brannox (John Malkovich), a British intellectual best-known for a theological text he wrote in his youth. Brannox is the antithesis of Lenny: religiously moderate, sophisticated and sensitive. Still, much like the previous pope, he hides secrets and deep-rooted insecurities that weigh heavily upon him. Elected to the papal throne, Brannox assumes the name “John Paul III,” but quickly finds that his predecessor’s shadow looms large, as the devoted cult of Pius XIII proves hard to shake in their fierce conviction of his return.
