‘The White Lotus’ Season 2 Will Feature a Familiar Face Coming Back

This past year gave us a number of great, buzz-worthy, meme-able shows. And one of the series that got people really talking was HBO Max’s original limited series The White Lotus, The six-episode satirical comedy-drama is a social commentary on white privilege and what better setting for that than a tropical resort?

It follows the guests — as well as the employees — of the White Lotus resort as they encounter some snags and deal with messy relationships during what is supposed to be a luxurious and relaxing Hawaiian island getaway. Everything starts off like a typical vacation, with some minor inconveniences, but it all unravels and ends in someone’s death.

Of course, with the way things ended, it’s hard to see how another season might keep the story going without ruining the show. So a lot of viewers were wondering if it would even get renewed for a second season.

Here’s everything we know about The White Lotus season 2 so far.

Yes, there’s going to be a second season.

HBO has officially renewed The White Lotus, and the show’s creator Mike White will be releasing a second installment to the series. In fact, they announced it just before airing last season’s finale.

The Executive Vice President of HBO Programming, Francesca Orsi, said in a statement, “Mike [White] has once again delivered a quintessential HBO show, and it’s the talk of the town. We were thrilled to hear where he wanted to go next, after closing this epic chapter in Hawaii, and can’t wait to keep following him wherever he takes us.”

It’s going to be a whole new cast.

Ok, so, season two is basically going to be its own thing. This is setting The White Lotus up to be an anthology series like American Horror Storywhere we’ve got a whole new set of characters, a different setting, but similar themes.

The second season is going to be featuring new guests, staff, and a different resort location. And the cast is a really solid lineup that includes stars Aubrey Plaza, Theo James, Haley Lu Richardson, Michael Imperioli, Murray Abraham, Adam DiMarco, Tom Hollander, Leo Woodall, Meghann Fahy, and Will Sharpe.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Plaza will play Harper Spiller, a woman on vacation with her husband played by Will Sharpe. And they’re vacationing with friends, husband and wife Cameron and Daphne Babcock played by James and Fahy. Richardson is going to be Portia, a young woman traveling with her boss. Abraham will be Bert Di Grasso, an elderly man traveling with his son, Dominic (Imperioli) and grandson, Albie (DiMarco). And Hollander will be English expat named Quentin.

But one familiar face is confirmed for a comeback.

Jennifer Coolidge will be back for season two, reprising her role as Tanya McQuoid, the weepy wealthy woman who was mourning the loss of her mother. But it’s unclear how big a part Tanya will be playing in the new season’s story line.

So far, Coolidge is the only confirmed regular returning for the show. There’s no indication that any of the other season one cast members would be doing the same. “We only made one-year deals with the actors,” White told IndieWire in an interview. “So we’d have to find out who is even available.”

It’s going to be set in Italy.

For this season, we’ll be taking a trip to gorgeous Italy. Variety reported back in January that the show would be filming specifically in Sicily, and the fictional Italian White Lotus resort will be set in the Four Seasons San Domenico Palace. Last season, the Hawaii location was actually also shot at the Four Seasons Resort Maui.

When is it coming out?

The release date for the second season is still TBD. But filming officially started in February 2022. Some people are hopeful and guessing it might come out as soon as August, since that’s when the first season premiered. Others are saying it’ll take some time and will most likely be released in 2023.

In any case, it’s going to be a hot sec before The White Lotus season two drops. But we’ll keep you posted as soon as we know when. For now, you can stream all of season 1 on HBO Max.
