While we cross our fingers for a third stay at The White Lotus, we can look forward to the incoming season two, which will take place over one week at another White Lotus resort in Sicily.
In addition to Jennifer Coolidge‘s return as the glamorous Tanya, the season features a whole new crop of guests including Aubrey Plaza, Michael Imperioli, Theo James, Haley Ru Richardson and Meghann Fahy.
White revealed that the themes of the second season were greatly influenced by the Italian setting—so he ditched the Bilderberg idea.
“The kind of mythology of Sicily, at least from the point of view of Americans, is the archetypal sexual politics and role play that you associate with, like, opera and the mafia and Italian romance,” he said. “I felt like it should be more focused on men and women and relationships and adultery and have an operatic feel to it, so I pivoted.”
