With its star-studded cast and Hawaiian setting, HBO’s The White Lotus was one of the most talked-about shows of the season. However conclusive the season’s conclusion may be, it does not rule out future seasons of the popular show. Although the first season of The White Lotus has already concluded, HBO has already confirmed a second season, which will appear very different from the first six installments.
The show’s creator, Mike White, will continue the anthology-style with new people and a new location, delivering more dark humor. Everything you need to know about The White Lotus’s second season can be found here.
HBO has confirmed that The White Lotus will return for a second season.
HBO revealed that The White Lotus would return for a second season before the season one finale aired.
“Mike [White] has once again delivered a typical HBO program, and it’s the talk of the town,” said HBO Programming Executive Vice President Francesca Orsi in a news statement. We couldn’t wait to hear what he has in store for us next and can’t wait to follow him wherever he goes.”
With a brand new cast for season two.
Viewers will not be returning to the same Hawaiian resort for The White Lotus’ return. As the series continues anthologically, there will be a new set of travelers and staff and a new hotel. For the next installment of The White Lotus, “a separate group of tourists jets off to another White Lotus property and settles in temporarily amongst its people,” HBO stated.
Michael Imperioli and Aubrey Plaza were the first cast members of The White Lotus season two to be announced. Theo James and Meghann Fahy will portray Cameron and Daphne Babcock, a married couple on vacation with the Spillers. According to Plaza, this is the case “As a result, the majority of my life story is a separate narrative. We’re on vacation with another couple, and I’m playing a married woman. In the first season, several characters overlapped, but the four of us are the focus of our story.”
The cast as a whole is stacked. Bert Di Grasso, an older man traveling with his son Dominic (Michael Imperioli) and grandson Albie (F. Murray Abraham), will be played by F. Murray Abraham, according to The Hollywood Reporter (Adam DiMarco). English ex-pat Quentin is played by Tom Hollander, and Haley Lu Richardson plays a young woman traveling with her boss.
HBO announced in March 2022 that three Italian actors would join the group. In addition to Sabrina Impacciatore, Beatrice Grannó, and Simona Tabasco, the two local Italian females that hang out at the Sicily hotel, will portray Valentina and Mia, respectively.
The action will take place in the Italian peninsula in the upcoming second season.
It was just a matter of time before the following show season was speculated upon. When asked for his ideas, White told IndieWire, “It would have to be a new hotel, like, say, ‘The White Lotus: San Tropez,'” he said. It would be “fun too,” because we could get into culture clash ideas and stuff like that because White suggested to Entertainment Weekly that they do White Lotus: Kyoto.
Although Variety broke the news of the second season of The White Lotus’s arrival in Italy in January, according to the journal, the fictional Italian White Lotus resort will be filmed at the Four Seasons San Domenico Palace in Sicily, just as the Four Seasons Resort Maui did for the show’s Hawaiian counterpart in season 1.
In February of 2022, production in Sicily began in earnest.
According to Cosmopolitan, Aubrey Plaza has confirmed that production has begun. “It’s a bit out there. This entire hotel is now under our control. There’s a palpable vibe in the air.” She went on to say, “It’s interesting to see how the setting affects the program. In Sicily, there is so much to see and do. Since we’ve been here, an actual volcano has erupted. The atmosphere is tense. As if that’s what it’s going to be like.”
It’s been confirmed that Jennifer Coolidge will be back for the show’s second season.
HBO confirmed the star’s comeback in February 2022, which TVLine first reported in mid-October. Only Coolidge has returned from Season 1 of The White Lotus.
In an interview with IndieWire, White hinted that some of the characters from The White Lotus could return in season two, even though the cast is mainly new. Because “I don’t think you can honestly put [Season 1 guests] together again,” he remarked. It’s possible, however, that some of them could return in a Marvel universe-style scenario. Only Coolidge has been confirmed for a comeback.
The first season also included Connie Britton, Steve Zahn, Murray Bartlett, Alexandra Daddario, Jake Lacy, Molly Shannon, Sydney Sweeney, Natasha Rothwell, and Coolidge. White referred to the difficulty of reuniting the cast. He said, “We merely signed one-year contracts with the performers.” It would be necessary to see if anyone is available.
There’s no word on when the movie will be available.
There’s no word yet on when the second season of this show will premiere on HBO; it was only confirmed, and filming has not yet begun. You can catch up on season one on HBO Max while you wait.
