The Young Pope was an global co-production that aired in Italy in 2016 before it premiered on HBO in America early previous year.

Details of Malkovich's character, as well as any details about the plot of The New Pope, are being kept under wraps.

Written by Sorrentino with his frequent Italian co-writer Umberto Contarello, who also served as co-writer on Young Pope, and Stefano Bises, The New Pope limited series also is set in the world of modern papacy. John Malkovich is also joining the series.

Malkovich, who is now filming BBC One's limited series "The ABC Murders", is expected to be playing the titular role in "The New Pope", although the specifics of his casting have not been confirmed. While the title, The New Pope, has been known for over a year, having arrived quickly after The Young Pope completed its early-2017 run, it was provocative, since the first series concluded with cliffhanger regarding the fate of Jude Law's titular pontiff. He wasn't in The Young Pope, but that oversight is being rectified for The New Pope, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new series will be a follow-up to the events of The Young Pope, which featured Law as a provocative American pope who is hell-bent on disrupting the Vatican.

Production on "The New Pope" is scheduled to begin in Italy in November.
