Expected Synopsis of The New Pope Season 2
The episodes of the show are not stand-alone and the story of the same story as it was followed in The Young Pope. The new Pope is a mysterious character in the show who conceals many secrets. In the previous season, we saw Lenny Belardo becoming a saint, and many people worshipping and idolizing him.
We saw that “The church is under attack from several scandals that risk devastating the hierarchies irreversibly and from external threats striking the symbol of Christianity. As always, however, in the Vatican, nothing is what it seems.”
If the show renews then the story will be taken further, following the same plot.
