‘The Young Pope’ Stream: Watch HBO Series Premiere Online

The Young Pope stream

One of HBO’s newest flagship series premieres tonight as Jude Law and Paolo Sorrentino’s The Young Pope begins its first season at 9:00 P.M. EST. In The Young Pope, Jude Law, who is British, plays Lenny Belardo, the first American-born pope. Pope Pius XIII begins the series as the newly elected Pope and former Archbishop of New York. His Chief Advisor, Sister Mary, is played by Academy Award winner Diane Keaton. Sister Mary is an American nun who raised Belardo and Cardinal Andrew Dussolier in an orphanage and has helped Lenny throughout his career. Sister Mary is appointed personal secretary to the Pope. Cardinal Andrew Dussolier, a missionary, Lenny’s longtime friend and a fellow orphan, is played by Scott Shepherd. Outside of that, not much is given about the plot of the Vatican-set satire. The series has already premiered overseas, so if you want to find spoilers, I’m sure you can.

The Young Pope has received widespread critical acclaim in England, Ireland, and Italy, so it’s reasonable to assume it will be a big hit in the United States as well. With a cast of award-winning actors, an acclaimed Italian writer and director, and a huge $50 million production budget, The Young Pope, which has already been renewed for a second season, is shaping up to be HBO’s next big hit.

The Young Pope Reviews

The Verge: “The Young Pope feels like going to Sunday mass high out of your mind.”

Rolling Stone: “Jude Law is the Tony Soprano of the Vatican in HBO’s new surreal surprise hit.”

Vanity Fair: “For a troubled nation, The Young Pope hits too close for comfort.”

NY Times: “The Young Pope is beautiful and ridiculous.”

Entertainment Weekly: “This is a surreal dark comedy that presents a pop-psych deconstruction of faith; an irreverent complaint about the silence of God, Christian witness, and idolatry of all kinds; a subversive allegory for the rise of alt-right orthodoxy; and a metaphor for inchoate Americanism as world religion.”
