White Lotus Season 3 Potential Plot

Mike White hinted at a potential storyline for Season 2 that he did not use, that he “might still do … down the road,” he told Entertainment Weekly.Originally, it was more of like a Bilderberg conference, more about getting into some of the bigger power dynamics there,” he said. “But Sicily was a totally different vibe than the idea I pitched. That didn’t seem right.” 

In addition to this, he is already thinking about the HBO show’s Season 3, even on the red carpet for Season 2, quote, “We just turned in our last episode to the network yesterday, so it’s hard to think about the next race,” White told Deadline. “But if we did, I think it’d be fun to maybe go to a whole different continent. You know, we did Europe, and maybe Asia, something crazy like that, that would be fun.”

White Lotus Season 3 Cast and Crew

The White Lotus is created, written, and directed by Mike White; executive produced by Mike White, David Bernad, and Nick Hall; co-executive produced by Mark Kamine. If the series continues to happen, a familiar face from the series may be aboard in Jennifer Coolidge. “Jennifer is my friend and everybody loved her in the first season, and I was like, ‘I can’t go to Italy without Jennifer.’ And maybe that’s still the case. Like, maybe you can’t go to Japan without Jennifer, either. There are so many fun actors we’ve worked with so far, so it’s just kind of like who’s available.” 

Some of the actors joining the ensemble in Season 2 include Aubrey Plaza, Will Sharpe, Sabrina Impacciatore, Theo James, Meghann Fahy, F. Murray Abraham, Adam DiMarco, Tom Hollander, Michael Imperioli, Haley Lu Richardson, Leo Woodall, Beatrice Grannó and Simona Tabasco are expected to reprise their roles in the third season if their character arcs allow them to continue and explore more about them individually on new locations.

The White Lotus Season 2: What to expect in the new season?

From Mike White (HBO’s Enlightened), The White Lotus is a sharp social satire following the exploits of various employees and guests at an exclusive Hawaiian resort over the span of one highly transformative week. As darker dynamics emerge with each passing day, the six-episode first season gradually reveals the complex truths of the seemingly picture-perfect travelers, cheerful hotel employees, and idyllic locale itself. The second season, titled The White Lotus: Sicily, which premieres October 30, is set at an exclusive Sicilian resort and, similar to the first season, follows the exploits of guests and employees over the span of a week. 

The second season on Rotten Tomatoes, ahead of its worldwide release, has already reported a 100% approval rating with an average score of 8.50/10, based on 17 reviews. The site’s critical consensus reads: “Swapping its tropical trappings for Euro chic while focusing primarily on the corrosive influence of carnal desire, The White Lotus remains a cookie full of arsenic that goes down smooth.” On Metacritic, the season scored 82 out of 100 based on 15 critics, indicating “universal acclaim.”
