According to The White Lotus season 3 star Jason Isaacs, spilling details about the buzzy HBO series comes with its risks.

When asked at MegaCon in Orlando on Sunday if he could share any behind-the-scenes updated about the next installment, the Harry Potter alum joked that his hands were tied because, if “I say anything else, they take my kidney out through my ears.”

But Isaacs, 60, did share one piece of advice from creator/director Mike White. “I've not been to Thailand before and I got a text from the director saying, go and sit at the sauna and don't get out all day and you’ll be prepped for the shoot,” the actor said to a room full of laughs.

Each season has seen a mostly new crop of guests check for an eventful (read: murderous) stay at a different White Lotus resort, with season 1 taking place in Hawai’i and season 2 touring Sicily.

Isaacs’s role has yet to be announced for season 3, but HBO has confirmed he’ll appear beside Leslie Bibb, Dom Hetrakul, Michelle Monaghan, Parker Posey, Tayme Thapthimthong, Walton Goggins, Sarah Catherine Hook, Sam Nivola, Patrick Schwarzenegger and Aimee Lou Wood in the next installment of the award-winning anthology series.

"[Mike's] courage to explore the uncharted waters of the human psyche, paired with his signature irreverent humor and buoyant directing style, have us all dreaming of more vacation days at the resort we've come to adore," executive vice president of HBO Programming Francesca Orsi said in a statement about season 3.

New episodes of the dark comedy are slated to begin filming in Bangkok, Phuket and Ko Samui this month, according to the Tourism Authority of Thailand. “We are honored to have amazing Thailand featured as the filming location for the highly anticipated upcoming season of ‘The White Lotus,’” Governor Thapanee Kiatphaibool, said in a press release.
