Since its first season premiere on HBO Max, The White Lotus has enjoyed considerable success on the streaming platform. Currently airing its second season, the show has climbed to one of HBO’s top-watched shows and just hit another milestone!
HBO renewed The White Lotus for season 3, where the series will come back with a new location for the high-end resort where the guests go through life-changing experiences and deadly fun – sometimes quite literally.
The cast for the past two seasons has changed along with the location, except for two constants, Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries. There is no confirmation for their return in season 3, but fans feel the show is incomplete with the messy yet chic heiress.
Mike White, serving as the creator, director, and producer of the show, has shown how happy he is to be working with HBO for his story. Read his full quote below:
There’s no place I’d rather work than HBO, and there are no people I’d rather partner with than Casey Bloys, Francesca Orsi, Nora Skinner, and their incredible team. I feel so lucky to get this opportunity again and am excited to reunite with my amazingly talented collaborators on The White Lotus.
The current season premiered in October 2022 with a new cast, including Adam DiMarco, Meghann Fahy, Beatrice Grannò, Sabrina Impacciatore, Theo James, Aubrey Plaza, Haley Lu Richardson, and more.
The confirmation for season 3 came ahead of season 2’s end, which just reached its halfway mark and will wrap up the seven-part series on December 11, 2022. If previous patterns tell us anything, we can expect season 3 to hit HBO Max in late 2023.
The only thing we know for sure about season 3, for now, is that Mike White will not disappoint, teasing at least one dead body in the first episode and setting the mysterious tone of the series.
Stay tuned on HBO Max for new episodes of The White Lotus, and we’ll keep you updated on the show’s future.
