Fear not, HBO subscribers. Just because Westworld is over for now and Game of Thrones isn’t returning til summer, doesn’t mean your expensive cable package has to go to waste in the meantime. Next month brings the debut of The Young Pope, Paolo Sorrentino‘s lavish miniseries starring Jude Law as the fictional Pius XIII, the first American pope. Diane Keaton also stars, as a nun who seems rather skeptical of his fitness for the position.

Netflix has come a long ways from the days of their red-papered mailers. From their inception of a novel approach to letting subscribers rent movies online for a fixed monthly fee (and not getting slapped with late fines), to now they’re intent taking on the likes of HBO, Starz, and AMC with a huge increase to their 2017 production slate.

One of this year’s most intriguing, nerve-wracking and best films so far is THE WITCH from director Robert Eggers featuring a star turn from Anya Taylor-Joy.
