HBO Renews ‘The White Lotus’ For Third Season
Mike White‘s dramedy anthology The White Lotus has been airing its second season, set in Sicily, to critical acclaim. The viewership and audience response have been so positive, in fact, that HBO has already okay-ed this series for a third season.
The network said that through a combined review of Nielsen and first-party data, the second season premiere drew around 1.5 million viewers combined with the episode telecasts and streaming numbers from the HBO Max app.
The first season was set at the titular White Lotus resort in Hawaii, and was one of the most nominated shows at this year’s Emmy Awards, going on to win ten of its huge swathe of trophies including Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series, and Outstanding Supporting Actress for Jennifer Coolidge, who also appears in Season 2 as Tanya McQuoid.
Season two saw a mostly-new crop of guests arrive at a White Lotus location in Sicily. So far, the performances of new cast members F. Murray Abraham, Theo James and Aubrey Plaza have drawn particular praise this time.
So far, no details are known about season three besides its mere existence. Given that the episodes are not finished airing, we don’t know what state the characters will be in and if any of them are likely to return for the third season. There also haven’t been any hints about possible locations, but if the first two seasons are any indicator it’ll have to be picturesque and expensive looking.
