HBO renews The White Lotus for Season 3
James R | On 18, Nov 2022
HBO will once again check into The White Lotus for a third season.
Created, written, and directed by Mike White, the social satire follows the vacations of hotel guests over the span of a week as they relax and rejuvenate in paradise. But with each passing day, a darker complexity emerges in these picture-perfect travellers, the hotel’s cheerful employees, and the idyllic locate itself.
Season 1 starred Murray Bartlett (HBO’s Looking), Connie Britton (Nashville), Jennifer Coolidge (2 Broke Girls) and Alexandra Daddario (HBO’s True Detective). It was swiftly renewed for a second vacation, starring F Murray Abraham, Jennifer Coolidge, Adam DiMarco, Beatrice Grannò, Meghann Fahy, Jon Gries, Tom Hollander, Sabrina Impacciatore, Michael Imperioli, Theo James, Aubrey Plaza, Haley Lu Richardson, Will Sharpe, Simona Tabasco and Leo Woodall.
Now, just as the second instalment hopped location from Hawaii to a Sicilian resort, the third outing will once again feature new characters in a new location.
Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming, Head of HBO Drama Series and Films, said: “Reflecting on The White Lotus’ humble, run-and-gun origin as a contained pandemic production, it’s impossible not to be awestruck by how Mike orchestrated one of the buzziest and most critically acclaimed shows. And yet, he’s only continued to reach new heights in Season 2, which is the ultimate testament to Mike’s raw, unparalleled vision. His courage to explore the uncharted waters of the human psyche, paired with his signature irreverent humor and buoyant directing style, have us all dreaming of more vacation days at the resort we’ve come to adore. We couldn’t be more thrilled to get the chance to collaborate on a third season together.”
Mike White added: “There’s no place I’d rather work than HBO and there’s 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.”
