HBO's The White Lotus is currently on screen for season two, and this series sees a new group of travellers, with the exception of Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries' characters, head for a luxury vacation to the fictional White Lotus resort.
The second series is set in Sicily, Italy. Much like in the first season, as the holiday progresses, problems begin to reveal themselves between the guests and as seen in the first episode, a dead body will be discovered by the end of the season.
While we don't even know how it ends yet, fans are already wondering if we'll be getting a third season of the show. The show's creator Mike White has said he already has ideas for another season, so this is everything we know so far.
When was The White Lotus season 3 confirmed?
Good news, guys! HBO announced a third season was officially happening with a tweet on 18th November. It read, "You already know The White Lotus is to die for. Book your next vacation now. #TheWhiteLotus has been renewed for Season 3."

The season two finale is due to be released on 11th December, so we've still got some episodes to come.
What might a potential season 3 of The White Lotus be about?
The creator of The White Lotus, Mike White, has said he is keen for another season of the show and is already thinking about a new location. Speaking to Deadline at the premiere of season two, hee said: "We just turned in our last episode to the network yesterday, so it’s hard to think about the next race. 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."
Just like in the first two seasons, the premise of a potential third season would probably follow a similar pattern of following a group of hotel guests at the fictional White Lotus resort.
Who might star in a potential The White Lotus season 3?
Given we don't know who has died in season two of The White Lotus it's hard to guess who could potentially return for another season.
However, the show's creator said he would love to feature Jennifer Coolidge again in season three. Speaking to Deadline, he revealed: "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.”
Season three could welcome back cast members from season one and two, or it could create a whole new cast playing a new group of guests staying at the hotel.
Is there a release date for season 3 of The White Lotus?
It was only confirmed in November 2022, so it's hard to know for sure. But following the pattern, season two was confirmed in August 2021 and began filming in February 2022. The show was then released at the end of October this year, so if season three were to follow a similar schedule, we could maybe expect to see at the beginning of 2024.
The White Lotus season 2 is available to watch on Now TV.
