Teaser Begins to Answer Who is ‘The Young Pope’?

by Cate Lecuyer  |  10.03.2016

Jude Law stars as the first American pope who “does not negotiate with anything or anyone,” in the latest teaser from HBO.

“They chose a pope they did not know, and today they’ll begin to realize who I am,” he says in the promo. Described as conservative, ruthless and savvy at playing Vatican politics, the teaser implies that Pope Pius XIII wants to spark a revolution.

The eight-part series from director Paolo Sorrentino also stars Diane Keaton as Sister Mary, an American nun living in Vatican City, as well as Silvio Orlando, Scott Shepherd, Cécile de France, Javier Cámara, Ludivine Sagnier, Toni Bertorelli and James Cromwell.

The Young Pope premieres on Sky Atlantic in Italy and Germany on Oct. 21, in the U.K. on Oct. 27 and on HBO in the U.S. in 2017.
