This story began as a story about Lenny Belardo, who became Pope Pius XIII. His behavior was always eccentric and even scared others. But now the head of the church is the new Pope, so how will Lenny react to the fact that he is now out of work?


At 47, Lenny Belardo becomes one of the youngest popes. This post was helped by the cardinals of the warring clans, who thus decided to compromise. Their hopes of manipulation were dispelled - the young Pope turned out to be a wayward and tough leader. He miraculously solves all problems, and his main rule is to refuse publicity. However, Lenny still violates him in the first season - he goes out to the crowd with an encouraging speech, and among the people he sees his real parents, which immediately provokes him to faint ...

There are not many details about the new season. It is known that the plot will focus on the new Pope, played by John Malkovich, and the hero of Judah Low will now be given much less attention.

There are already continuation promo frames on the net. They depict Jude Law playing Lenny Belardo, and also next to him in the frame is the new head of the Catholic Church, played by John Malkovich.
