For HBO, Mike White produced the American comedy-drama anthology television series The White Lotus. It centers on the imaginary White Lotus resort chain’s visitors and staff, whose dysfunctional behaviors have an impact on their accommodations. Both the first season and the upcoming second season will take place in Sicily.
The White Lotus, which was initially planned as a six-part limited series, debuted on July 11, 2021, to positive reviews and great viewership. HBO renewed the program as an anthology series due to its popularity, and a second season is set to debut in October 2022.
Season two of The White Lotus has been officially renewed by HBO
The White Lotus would return for a second season, HBO revealed before the broadcast of the season one finale.
In a press statement, Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming, stated that Mike White had once again produced a classic HBO program that was the talk of the town. After ending this great chapter in Hawaii, we were excited to learn where he wanted to go next. We can’t wait to follow him wherever he leads.
What will the second season of The White Lotus cover?
The first season followed three different sets of visitors as they attempted to unwind on vacation in Maui, but nearly everything went wrong and resulted in unexpected deaths. Because the second season’s showrunner, Mike White, will also be engaged, we may assume it will follow a similar plot—possibly without murder, but who knows?—and make its famous guests consider their moral shortcomings. It will be interesting to see if they genuinely do learn from them this time.
Following the announcement of season 2, Francesca Orsi, EVP Programming at HBO, remarked, “Mike has once again delivered a definitive HBO program, and it’s the talk of the town.” “We can’t wait to keep following him wherever he takes us,” they said. “We were excited to learn where he wanted to go next, after concluding this great chapter in Hawaii.”
Where is it going to happen?
White previously informed TV-Line that the show will leave Hawaii and go to “a different hotel, like, say, The White Lotus: San Tropez or something,” adding that “it would have to be a different property.” He made references to potential destinations in France or Japan in an interview with Vanity Fair. Finally, Variety first revealed that season 2 would be filmed in Sicily, precisely in January 2022.
Who is going to be in the cast?
Although we won’t have a complete cast roster for the upcoming season for a few months, we do know that Michael Imperioli from The Sopranos and Aubrey Plaza will both be making their television debuts (Parks and Recreation). Imperioli, who will play Dominic Di Grasso, a vacationer traveling with his elderly father and young son, a recent college graduate, was the first new cast member revealed for season 2, according to Variety. Plaza will play Harper Spiller, a different vacationer who comes with her husband and his group of pals.
Fortunately, there are several Hollywood A-listers renowned for playing entitled affluent people. (In essence, Big Little Lies’ entire cast seems to fit the bill.) Our sole demand? Bring Natasha Rothwell back as Belinda and give her the big, wildly prosperous spa company she deserves. It’s past due.
Who makes up the new Italian cast?
Since the new season is set in Italy, some real Italian actors have been cast as characters that will be present during the week that the season is set at the Italian resort. According to Deadline, actress Sabrina Impacciatore has been chosen to play Valentina, the manager of the White Lotus resort in Sicily. Two local teenagers named Mia and Lucia who frequent the motel are portrayed by Beatrice Grannó and Simona Tabasco.
Is a trailer available yet?
Not quite, but a trailer for the upcoming season was released on July 18 by HBO Max. In the brief montage, Tanya from Coolidge rides a Vespa, Valentina from White Lotus welcomes visitors, and Harper from Plaza raises a glass with other customers.
