The White Lotus Season 2 Plot
The White Lotus Season 2 is titled “The White Lotus: Sicily,” which heads to Italy. The show is set at an exclusive Sicilian resort; it follows the exploits of various guests and employees over the span of a week. The upcoming season will have a similar idea to the last one but with a different setting. Rather than unwinding in Hawai’i, guests will appreciate the White Lotus Sicilian setting and the lovely beaches that surround it.
Over the course of a week, the social satire will follow a fresh set of guests, employees, and others as they socialize at the resort. However, Season 1 demonstrated that mere relaxation was not the goal of this show, as the resort was continually beset by a scandal involving almost everyone who checked in or worked there.
