Mike White’s, The White Lotus, became a revolutionary evolving hit as it garnered unexpected attention slowly after its premiere in 2021. The exotic setting makes it the most perfect aesthetic watch for your lazy Sundays.
An array of sharp exchanges and beautiful scenery is just the amalgamation we crave for an entertainment-packed series.
The series directs the viewer into a faraway fantasy fuelled world but the canny commentary balances the momentum by giving the right grounded touch to make it feel contemporary.
Is the White Lotus Being Renewed for a Second Season?
The show’s acclaimed success has prompted the production of a second season which will feature another appealing location. For those who wanted the second season to feature their favourite characters, this will be a disappointing announcement.
The White Lotus will be renewing with a new cast and location set which has been revealed through a progression of subtle titillating announcements. A very clever marketing tactic indeed! The cast announcements have revealed quite some details of what the viewers can expect to see in the next season.
The Stellar Cast Expected to Feature in the White Lotus Season 2
A return of fan favourite Jennifer Coolidge as Tanya McQuoid will be seen in the next season. Her role in the previous season enamoured fans and she garnered a Golden Globe nomination for her performance.
Other notable cast members include Michael Imperioli as Dominic Di Grasso and Aubrey Plaza as Harper Spiller. Tom Hollander will be playing the character of Quentin while Haley Lu Richardson will be seen as Portia.
Dominic De Grasso will be vacationing to the White Lotus resort accompanied by his dad played by F. Murray Abraham and his son played by Adam Di Marco. Spiller is travelling alongside her husband coupled with her spouse’s friends. Quentin will have his nephew with him and a few friends on his trip. Portia and her boss will be visiting the resort together.
Aubrey Plaza is rather thrilled for her role as Harper and is super excited to work with Mike White. They were previously working on a project together which couldn’t be finalised due to issues arising from the pandemic outbreak.
She revealed in an interview to Variety that she was a fan of the show and more significantly of Mike White.
She talked about the added pressure of working on a franchise that previously did very well but she is hopeful to continue to honour the expectations people have from the show and do her level best.
What Will Be the New Location?
The comedy-drama is all set to dazzle viewers with its new location in Sicily, Italy. As per sources, the location is narrowed down to the resort town of Taormina.
Four Season Hotel will serve as the fictional White Lotus property and according to reports by variety the San Domenica Palace will be the next season’s highlight property and it has restricted access for guests till the first of April. HBO has not commented on the confirmation.
The White Lotus’s rise to fame was inevitable given its addictive storytelling and creators will subserve the narrative for the next season as it is surely going to follow a similar style. The star cast is an absolute stealer and I am eagerly anticipating the show’s return with an all-new location. So exciting! Stay tuned for more details.
