“The White Lotus” gave us the sinister tropical getaway we never knew we needed – delivering some of the best performances of 2021.
“Is ‘The White Lotus’ a murder mystery? Yes. Is it also a comedy? Absolutely,” wrote IndieWire TV reviewer Ben Travers in his review of the HBO series. “Does it face the harsh truths of America’s wealth gap by studying a narrow range of topics at both ends of the ever-expanding spectrum? It would be weird if I said ‘No’, so yes, there is.’

Murray Bartlett, Connie Britton, Alexandra Daddario, Fred Hechinger, Jake Lacy, Brittany O’Grady, Natasha Rothwell, Sydney Sweeney and Steve Zahn led the ensemble series, with breakout star Jennifer Coolidge reminding us why she’s an icon for her acting as a grieving (and tone-deaf) elite.
Molly Shannon, Jon Gries, Jolene Purdy, Kekoa Kekumano and Lukas Gage also guest-starred on the series. So what now?
After a great ending, the fans were already foaming for a second part. Luckily, we didn’t have to hold onto our pleated designer khakis for long, as showrunner Mike White confirmed in an anthology series.
“It should be a different hotel, like, say, ‘The White Lotus: San Tropez’ or something,” White told TVLine. “I don’t think you can have credibility” [all the Season 1 guests] again on the same holiday. But maybe it could be something from the Marvel universe, where some of them would come back.”
Now we finally get some answers about which new stars will check in to the luxury hotel this time. Or as HBO explained in a press statement, season two will “follow another group of vacationers as they fly to another White Lotus property and temporarily settle among the residents.”
Find out everything we know about season 2 of “The White Lotus” below.
