‘The Borgias’ Season 3 Teaser Offers Up “A New Pope” For Your Consideration

Still looking for a new Pope? Showtime is hoping you will cast your eyes Jeremy Irons’ way.

It was only a matter of time before Showtime capitalized on current events to promote the new season of The Borgias, and today they did just that with the release of a lighthearted promo touting the considerable charms of Pope Alexander. The roguish “man of the people” takes an interesting line on family values and diplomacy, but no one is going to argue that he isn’t “a man not afraid to tackle all of the issues”– although his methods tend to be a tiny bit unorthodox. Check out the promo below!

Season three of The Borgias premieres Sunday, April 14th at 10PM ET/PT.
