The White Lotus Season 2 Release Date: Check Updates!
White Lotus writer and director Mike White's last HBO project, the mental-breakdown drama Enlightened starring Laura Dern, was canceled after two seasons despite being (like TheWhiteLotus) highly appreciated by critics.
While HBO's most recent buzzworthy offering was first billed as a six-episode limited series, the network has now given the drama about the workers and guests of a Hawaii resort (where a strange death happens) the go-ahead for a second season.
HBO's executive vice president of programming, Francesca Orsi, said in a statement, “Mike has once again produced a classic HBO show, and it's the talk of the town.” “We were ecstatic to learn where he wanted to travel after closing this amazing chapter in Hawaii, and we can't wait to follow him wherever he goes.”
Release Date for White Lotus Season 2?
Unfortunately, no release date for White Lotus Season 2 has yet been revealed. Our best estimate is that Season 2 will begin in 2023, with a trailer releasing in 2022.
Where and How to Watch White Lotus?
Currently, the first season of The White Lotus may be seen on HBO Max, HBO.com, and the HBO Max app. Season 2 will be accessible on all of these platforms when it premieres.
Will Season 2 of White Lotus Be Produced?
Indeed, it's official! The White Lotus has been renewed for a second season by HBO. White has already expressed some creative worries about Season 2, which he anticipates as remaining faithful to the original while also feeling fresh to fans despite the lack of public information.
“In television, it is difficult to start from scratch and repeat the entire process,” he remarked. “So you believe that a bird in the hand is worthwhile to pursue. Therefore, I would do another season because I believe there is a way to approach new issues in a manner that feels distinct from this one.”
Looking forward to your next trip to The White Lotus? Here is all we know about The White Lotus Season 2 so far, including what White has said about his ideas for the upcoming season, who is joining the cast, and where filming will take place.
Where is White lotus Season 2 Being Filmed?
Variety announced on January 20 that White Lotus will film Season 2 in Italy, notably in the Sicilian tourist town of Taormina.
The outlet also claims that, like Season 1, which was shot in Hawaii's Four Seasons Resort Maui, Season 2 will also be filmed at a real Four Seasons property, the Four Seasons San Domenico Palace. And while that information came from an unknown source, there appears to be corroboration that the actors and crew are already on the location: the resort's homepage indicates that the facilities are unavailable to guests (save, presumably, imaginary characters!) until April 1, 2022.
Before Season 2 of White Lotus was officially renewed, White told Entertainment Weekly “We would not be able to afford to stay in the Four Seasons in Maui [for Season 2], so we would go to… It would have to be something like the white Lotus: Kyoto. Which would also be entertaining, as we could discuss cultural clash concepts and similar topics.”
Cast in Season 2 of White Lotus?
White Lotus Season 1's all-star cast, which included Murray Bartlett, Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Alexandra Daddario, Jake Lacy, Natasha Rothwell, Jolene Purdy, Sydney Sweeney, Molly Shannon, and Steve Zahn, was one of the show's main draws. Fortunately for fans, White told IndieWire before Season 2 production began that he believed there were viable ways to bring at least a portion of the Season 1 cast back for further episodes.
“I don't believe it's plausible to have [all the Season 1 guests] on vacation together again,” he added. However, it might be similar to the Marvel universe, in which some of the characters return. However, he noted that logistics must also be considered. “Only one-year contracts were established with the performers,” he stated. Therefore, we must determine who is even available.
Since then, it has been widely reported that Coolidge will return for Season 2; we also know that she will be joined by confirmed new cast members Michael Imperioli, F. Murray Abraham, Aubrey Plaza, Tom Hollander, Adam DiMarco, Haley Lu Richardson, Theo James, Meghann Fahy, Will Sharpe, and Leo Woodall.
Abraham, Imperioli, and DiMarco will play three generations of dads and sons, according to Variety. Regarding the rest, “Plaza joins the cast as Harper Spiller, a woman who is on vacation with her husband and his friends. Hollander will represent Quentin, an English expatriate on holiday with his friends and nephew, while Richardson will play Portia, a young woman traveling with her boss.”
What Happened in the Previous Season
The last episode of The White Lotus Season 1 will premiere on August 15, and while we know that someone will die (a corpse bag was shown in the pilot), we do not yet know who. Fortunately, there are some quite compelling possibilities to discuss in the meantime.
According to Glamour, Shane is the lone survivor from the morgue (played by Lacy). Because in the opening scene we see Shane alive and well, albeit distressed, this is the case. Could Shane's wife Rachel (Daddario) be the one to perish? It is certainly feasible, but perhaps too evident. The hotel staff has also been ruled out as a viable possibility. Why would local employees be loaded onto a plane in a body bag? It appears far more plausible that one of the guests is the culprit, but who?
Another fan hypothesis suggests that it may be Quinn, portrayed by FredHechinger, an actor who appears to get offed regularly on-screen: His character was one of the first to die in Fear Street, Part One: 1994, and he also portrayed the “evil guy” in The Woman in the Window, so the odds appear to favor him.
Hechinger also told Collider the following, leading us to believe that his character may be the one to die: “Mike [White] is an excellent mix as a writer and director on set, in that he is unflinching when it comes to the cringe factor. He will twist the knife to the greatest extent possible. The majority of people would cut there, but what happens next? And what happens thereafter? And what happens thereafter? Because we do not have the luxury of editing in real life, you know. Consequently, I frequently find myself in the midst of a conversation thinking, “Oh no, what have I done?” You cannot proceed to the following scene.”

He said, “You must remain in the situation and tolerate whatever is occurring, or however you have made this person or yourself feel uncomfortable. And I just think he's extremely unflinching with the pain of it, but he has a lot of sympathy for the characters, which I believe allows him to see the tale from their eyes as a director.”
