The Young Pope Season 1 Recap

When a failure in choosing the next Pope of the Vatican Catholic church fails due to some reason, a young Cardinal called Lenny Belardo (Jude Law) steps up to become the next Pope. For this, he takes up the name of Pius XIII and from then Lenny is Pope Pius XIII. After getting into a position of power, he proceeds to challenge the already established way of the Vatican church. His idea to change the way the church works also partly because Lenny had been abandoned by his parents leaving him as an orphan.

Therefore wanting to confront this, he goes on to change the way the Vatican works. He even installs the nun who had raised him while Lenny was in the Orphanage. Sister Mary (Diane Keaton) is appointed in the Vatican as the new Pope’s chief advisor by Lenny. All this change leads to disruptions within and outside the Vatican church.
