When The White Lotus season one dropped on HBO and NOW, viewers flocked to social media to call it "fabulous", "iconic" and "binge-watchable." Which leads us to our first question: Now that we've watched every episode in 24 hours, when can we expect season two?
The good news is it's already been confirmed, and The White Lotus will officially get a follow up. Here's everything else you need to know.
What is The White Lotus about?
Written by Mike White, who also worked on School Of Rock and Pitch Perfect 3, The White Lotus is a comedy-drama that centres around the entitled guests and exhausted staff at a luxurious hotel in Hawaii.
It's brilliant cast includes Jennifer Coolidge from Legally Blonde, Sydney Sweeney from Euphoria and the likes of Murray Bartlett, Connie Britton and Alexandra Daddario.
When was The White Lotus season 2 confirmed?
Announcing the follow-on series in August 2021, HBO said: “The next chapter of The White Lotus leaves Hawaii behind and follows a different group of vacationers as they jet to another White Lotus property and settle in temporarily amongst its inhabitants.”
Who could star in The White Lotus season 2?
Speaking to IndieWire, creator Mike White explained there would unlikely be any repeat guests from season one, as it probably wouldn't make sense. "I don’t think you can credibly have [all the Season 1 guests] on the same vacation again," he said. "But maybe it could be a Marvel universe type thing, where some of them would come back."
Alexandra Daddario who plays Rachel, said something similar, adding, "I don’t know much about [season two], but the way TV is now with anthology shows…I do think there’s always a way."
What could happen in The White Lotus season 2?
As HBO's statement revealed, there's likely to be a change of location. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, "It would have to be a different hotel, like, say, ‘The White Lotus: San Tropez’ or something," or even White Lotus: Kyoto, “which would be fun too, because we could get into culture clash ideas and stuff like that.”
When will The White Lotus season 2 be released?
Judging by the fact the first series has only just come out, and the second series was recently confirmed, it doesn't look like the production has started. Producers haven't even picked a new location, so it's unlikely we can expect anything in the next year. Damn.
Regardless, we're excited for this.
