Season 2 of The White Lotus ended dramatically, with many of surprises and, sadly, some deaths. Naturally, fans’ attention has already shifted to the third season, which has been confirmed.
Except for Jennifer Coolidge‘s Tanya and Jon Gries’s Greg, an entirely new cast of characters was introduced in Season 2 of the mystery comedy-drama, which took place at the White Lotus resort in Sicily, Italy.
The second season of The White Lotus has concluded, so now is a good time to learn about what we know about the third season, including where it might be set, who might feature in it, and when it might arrive.
Will There be a White Lotus season 3?
Yes! A testament to the massive reception it garnered straight out of the gate, the program was renewed for a third run in the middle of November, after only three episodes of season 2 had aired.
As the show’s creator, Mike White, put it, “There is no place I would rather work than HBO, and there is no people I would prefer partner with than [chief content officer] Casey Bloys, [head of drama and films] Francesca Orsi, [senior VP] Nora Skinner and their fantastic staff.
I count myself extremely fortunate to have been given this opportunity once more, and I look forward to working on The White Lotus once more with the other incredibly gifted individuals that contributed to the project with me.
Orsi continued, “It’s impossible not to be amazed by how Mike arranged one of the buzziest and most critically lauded shows, especially when one considers The White Lotus‘s humble, run-and-gun origin as a limited epidemic production.
Even so, he’s continued to excel in season 2, which is the ultimate tribute to Mike’s unfiltered, unrivaled vision. His unique brand of irreverent humor and upbeat directing style, combined with his boldness in venturing into previously uncharted psychological territory, has left us all wishing we could extend our stay at the resort we’ve come to love. We’re overjoyed to be working together for the third season.
The White Lotus Season 3 Release Date Speculation
Season 3 of The White Lotus has not yet been given a premiere date by HBO, although an approximate estimate can be made based on the show’s previous premiere schedules.
Season 1 ended in July 2021, and Season 2 began in October 2022, so it is safe to estimate that the subsequent episodes will air around one year and three months apart. If true, then we should expect to see Season 3 of The White Lotus in late 2023 or early 2024.
The White Lotus Season 3 Cast Rumours
While the cast for season 3 of The White Lotus has not been announced just yet, it is safe to assume that White will recruit an entirely new group of misfits for his next nightmare vacation. Only Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries, who played Tanya McQuoid-Hunt, and her husband Greg, respectively, have appeared in both seasons.
The show’s creator has previously expressed interest in including Jennifer Coolidge in future episodes of the series. For example, he told Deadline, “Jennifer is my friend and everybody adored her in the first season, and I was like, ‘I can’t go to Italy without Jennifer.'” Also, it’s possible that’s still the case.
You might not be able to visit Japan without Jennifer. We’ve already worked with a tonne of great performers, so it comes down to availability. These statements were made before the shocking season 2 finale of White Lotus, in which Tanya was exposed as the beached body.
Thus, either White was playing tricks on viewers’ minds the whole time, or she will return in a flashback episode of season three. However, Gries’s Greg’s whereabouts are unknown, so it is not out of the question that he could turn up at another White Lotus resort, flush with the inheritance he received upon Tanya’s untimely demise.
During an interview with RadioTimes.com, Jake Lacy, who starred in the first season of The White Lotus, revealed that there has been talking of bringing back his character, the demanding estate agent Shane Patton, for more mayhem.
After the excitement of the new season has subsided, he said, “Maybe six months from now, [Mike White] might be like, ‘Are we really going to do a third?’ When are they coming back?
Where will The White Lotus season 3 be Set?
After visiting White Lotus properties in Hawaii and Italy in seasons one and two, season three of The White Lotus will focus on a different location in the luxury hotel company. It’s possible that White will pick a very different setting, possibly an unexplored continent like South America, Asia, or Africa, to keep things fresh and provide for new narrative avenues.
In an interview footage shown after the season 2 finale, creator White hinted to this. White hinted in the trailer that “death and Eastern religion and spirituality” could be major themes for season 3.
“Money was kind of the focus of the first season, and sex of the second,” White explained. Season three might be a satirical and humorous exploration of mortality and Eastern spirituality, in my opinion. Doing another round at White Lotus seems like it could produce a beautiful tapestry.
According to an interview with Deadline, White said, “I think it’d be wonderful to maybe go to a whole different continent. We’ve already traveled across Europe, perhaps if we did something equally outlandish in Asia, it would be entertaining. White told NPR that the show’s success in engaging viewers is due in large part to the mysterious death that is only revealed in increments during the season.
He began by referencing his previous HBO series Enlightened, which starred Laura Dern and received high praise but was cancelled unexpectedly, saying, “When that first season became such a water cooler show [that] people were talking about, I was like, ‘Had I only known if I’d put a dead body at the beginning of Enlightened, maybe people would’ve watched Enlightened.
White said, “You realize these types of hooks truly get viewers. It’s undeniable that this element is crucial to the show’s success. The ending will tell us if or not the story was satisfying, but I’m looking forward to it now. “It’s good to have viewers as somebody who’s been working on the fringes.”
