The New Pope Trailer Leads Us Into Temptation

Meet the new pope, same as the young pope? Probably not! HBO has blessed us heathens with the first trailer for the sinful New Pope, which finds our papal boo Lenny (Jude Law) ending his time as supreme pontiff for reasons unbeknownst to us just yet. Coming out of the white chimney smoke is an older chap (John Malkovich) who prefers straggly beards to Speedos, although it’s nice to see that both boys love showing off the same red shoes. Little is currently known about the nine-episode season, with showrunner Paolo Sorrentino only teasing that he’ll keep exploring “the world of the modern papacy.” Silvio Orlando’s conniving cardinal will return, with Sharon Stone and Marilyn Manson joining in supporting roles. Praise be!
