Mike White has said that the forthcoming season would be “longer, bigger, and crazier,” and HBO has officially revealed the actors as well as the location for the upcoming season.

The White Lotus, a social satire that was created by Mike White and won an Emmy, is officially coming back, and production on the third season is scheduled to begin in Thailand in the month of February. A new set of guests and workers will find their lives colliding in unforeseen ways in the upcoming edition, which will take place at another one of the luxury hotel’s exotic locales, just as the previous two installments did.

HBO has made an official announcement on the cast and location for the forthcoming third season of The White Lotus, which it has claimed is almost ready to begin production.

At this time, Entertainment Tonight is investigating all that we have learned thus far about the cast, the setting, and the storyline. This includes White’s most recent clues as well as what several members of the expansive ensemble have already spoken about returning.

For the third season of The White Lotus, HBO made the announcement of the cast in January of 2024. In addition to Natasha Rothwell, who was already revealed to be returning to the cast, Leslie Bibb, Dom Htrakul, Jason Isaacs, Michelle Monaghan, Parker Posey, and Tayme Thapthimthong are also scheduled to join the series. Rothwell will be reprising her role as spa manager Belinda Lindsey in the first season, which will take place in Hawaii.

I have nothing to say about it. When asked by ET in December, Rothwell said, “I literally cannot.” “Let me just say that I’ve read all of the scripts, and I think that everyone is in for a real treat. Greater than it has ever been. Hold on tight!”

A great number of viewers had previously pondered whether or not Jennifer Coolidge would reprise her role as Tanya McQuiod, the bereaved visitor who sought comfort in Greg Hunt (Jon Gries) during the first season of the show. However, the two’s relationship began to deteriorate during the second season. In addition to being nominated for a second time for reprisal, the actor, who is 62 years old, won her first Primetime Emmy for the first season.

White said in an interview with Deadline that he could not even fathom the possibility of being able to produce another chapter without her. As a result of the fact that Jennifer is my buddy and that everyone adored her during the first season, I was thinking to myself, ‘I can’t travel to Italy without Jennifer.’ And it’s possible that this is still the same. For example, it’s possible that you won’t be able to go to Japan without Jennifer.

And it seemed that Coolidge was willing to take on more responsibilities. Yes, yes, yes. She responded to ET’s inquiry regarding her comeback by saying, “Of course,” before making the following statement: “I mean, I don’t know what Mike has in mind.” To answer your question, sure, I would like to return.

On the other hand, Coolidge’s participation in the series has come to an end, as seen by the conclusion of the second season.

Even though Rothwell is the only returning star who has been selected for this season, there are still a great number of other White Lotus alumni that would be thrilled to have the opportunity to return to the show. In a prior interview with Deadline, White said, “There are so many fun actors we’ve worked with so far, so it’s just kind of like who’s available.”

Before it was revealed that she would be returning to the part, Rothwell had earlier expressed her excitement by saying, “I will follow Mike White to the ends of the earth.” It is possible that her next content may be a means of bringing Tanya’s plot to a conclusion, which may be in need of some resolution after the events that occurred in the subsequent season.

There have been many members of the cast from the first season who have said to ET that they would be open to returning to the White Lotus for another visit.

Mike White is someone with whom I would do anything. As for example, the third season of White Lotus, or something completely different. In any case, you should assist him in moving boxes into a new dwelling. For example, everything he desires. To put it simply, I believe he is a genius and I really admire him. “So, if he’s got something going and I get a call, I will be there,” Jake Lacy stated, indicating that he is “100 percent” in if White wants him to repeat his part as demanding guest Shane Patton. Lacy’s statement was made in response to White’s request for him to reprise his role.

Additionally, Alexandra Daddario, who plays Rachel, Shane’s wife, is interested in returning to the show. “If he had a great idea, then of course,” said the woman. I am willing to commit any act… Simply being a little part of the series is an incredible experience.

In reference to the other actors that appeared in the first season, Connie Britton, who portrayed Nicole Mossbacher, a mother and entrepreneur, said, “With any luck, maybe I’ll be in another season too.”

After the conclusion of the program, Sydney Sweeney, who plays Britton’s on-screen daughter, said that there have been discussions with the show regarding the prospect of returning. The Euphoria actress revealed that she is willing to go in whichever way the creator chooses to take things in the future. She said, “I can’t express how thrilled I am for Mike.” “Mike’s writing is just so much fun and so incredible.”

When it comes to the cast of the second season, there are just as many people who want to return, particularly now that viewers are aware of who survived the ordeal in Sicily.

To the question of whether or not she could reprise her role as the strict Harper Spiller, Aubrey Plaza said, “I hope so.” That is contingent upon whether or not I become a popular favorite. To be honest, I believe that it is all dependent on the individuals who people want to see again. In the event that there be that many seasons, F. Murray Abraham, who plays the role of Bert Di Grasso, the old patriarch, has said that he would want to return for season 3, as well as seasons 4 through 6. “But I’m really happy to have been in this one,” said the actor.

Meghann Fahy’s character, Daphne Babcock, who was on vacation with Harper and their two husbands at the Sicilian villa before finding a strange corpse in the ocean, is one of the guests who fans are aware is still alive and doing well. “Oh my God, of course,” Fahy said when asked about his homecoming. “I mean, if it were the third season, I would be just blown away. The set is just incredible to be a part of. Specifically, simply to see everyone working together. Not only is the cast fantastic, but it is also quite fascinating to watch Mike work. To put it another way, I would absolutely be present, of course.

The unfortunate reality is that Murray Bartlett, who played Armand, the hotel manager in the first season, will not be able to return. With the exception of the possibility that “we, like, go back in time or something,” he proposed. At the same time, that seems to be an unexpected turn for the series.

It has been decided that the third season of The White Lotus will take place in Thailand, with shooting taking place in and around Bangkok, Phuket, and Koh Samui. For the purpose of providing assistance with the shooting and production of the program, HBO made the announcement in January 2024 that it is collaborating directly with the Tourism Authority of Thailand.

“We are honored to have Amazing Thailand featured as the filming location for the highly anticipated upcoming season of The White Lotus,” said Thapanee Kiatphaibool, Governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand. “The White Lotus” promises to be one of the most anticipated television shows of the year. “The kingdom’s unique natural beauty, rich historical monuments, and different landscapes are the ideal settings to convey our interesting culture, amazing food, top-notch health and luxury products, and most significantly, our people and the warmth that we are known for in Thailand. Thailand has been regarded as one of the most popular filming sites all over the globe for a very long time. It is beyond a doubt that the White Lotus project will boost the kingdom’s standing as a favored filming site and a beacon of experience-based tourism, which will inspire even more people to visit Amazing Thailand.

There is a perfect alignment between White’s ideas for the most recent installment and the destination location. “The first season we highlighted money and then the second season is sex and I think the third season, it would be maybe a kind of satirical and funny look at loss in Eastern religion and spirituality,” he said in a video about the second season. “It feels like it could be a rich tapestry to do another round at White Lotus.”

In addition to this, the Four Seasons, which has been used as the setting for shooting in the first two seasons, also operates a number of other premium hotels situated around the nation. (During the first season, the Four Seasons Maui was the property that played the role of the White Lotus, while during the second season, the Four Seasons San Domenico Palace was the stand-in for the resort.)

Despite the fact that White is being silent on the plot for the time being, he did tell Entertainment Weekly that “It’s going to be a supersized White Lotus.” You can expect it to be longer, larger, and much crazy. At least for my personal barometer, that’s a positive thing… I don’t know what other people will say, but I am quite enthusiastic about it. The substance of the season is something that I am quite thrilled about.

Right now, you can watch the first and second seasons of The White Lotus on Max. During that year, the first part was the program that got the most Emmy nominations, with twenty nods across thirteen categories, and ten wins. At the Primetime Emmy Awards event, which will take place on January 15, the winners of the 23 Emmy nominations that have been received for the second season are scheduled to be revealed.
