The White Lotus 3: cast, release, location

The White Lotus 3 will be there

The White Lotus 3 will be there. On November 18, 2022, the HBO cable network confirmed the third season of the award-winning anthology series. No wonder: the series has become a major hit for Warner Bros. Discovery.

In the United States, the season 2 finale has kept glued 4.1 million total viewers across HBO Max and linear broadcasts on airnight, more than double the 1.9 million people who tuned in for the season one finale. It is also an extraordinary result – undoubtedly increased by the sounding board of social networks, which supported the weekly broadcast with memestheories and viral tweets – compared to the result of the debut of the second season, which had registered 1.5 million people.

When does The White Lotus 3 come out

Filming for season 3 has yet to kick off, but we can hazard a release window. The first season premiered on July 11, 2021 on HBO and HBO Max in the United States, while the second season kicked off on October 30, 2022 also overseas. If filming for the next episodes will begin between spring and summer 2023, the third cycle of episodes could see the light between the end of next year and the first months of 2024. We await an official announcement from HBO in this regard.

In Italy, the third season will be distributed exclusively by Sky and Now. Comcast’s pay-TV has signed an exclusive agreement that provides for Warner Bros. Discovery’s HBO programming to land on its channels until the end of 2025. If the distribution scheme adopted for the first two seasons is repeated, the third will also be airing simultaneously with the US release. We’re envisioning the next few episodes arriving by late 2023, or early 2024 at the earliest.

Plot of The White Lotus 3, previews

What will happen in the third season? The black comedy from HBO will be set in another resort of The White Lotus chain and will closely follow the lives of some guests and how they intertwine with the stories of the locals. Being a social satire, the series will address the theme from a new point of view. Mike said upcoming episodes could center around the concept of mortality — a topic the series alludes to in the season two finale.

The first season featured money and the second season featured sex”, White said in an interview with varietyadding: “I think the third season could deal with – through a satirical and funny look – topics such as death, oriental religion and spirituality. It seems to me that it could be an exciting premise for another adventure at the White Lotus”.

During an interview with variety, White said he would like to expand on Asian spiritual sensitivities in season three. The author’s choice for the location of season 3 seems to have fallen on Asia. If we were to hazard a guess at possible settings, we would speculate Thailand, Indonesia or the Philippines.

The White Lotus 3 cast, actors and characters

Being a semi-anthological series – each season is set in a different resort of the prestigious hotel chain that gives the show its name – each chapter presents an almost entirely renewed cast, except for some characters who return between an episode cycle and the other. The creator Mike White has in fact confirmed that all the seasons of his show are set in the same narrative universe – as evidenced by the presence of Jennifer Coolidge alias Tanya McQuoid, element of union between the first and second seasons -, therefore it is probable that in the season 3 we will see familiar faces from previous editions again.

Season 1 cast includes Murray Bartlett, Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Alexandra Daddario, Fred Hechinger, Jake Lacy, Brittany O’Grady, Natasha Rothwell, Sydney Sweeney, Steve Zahn, Molly Shannon, Jon Gries, Jolene Purdy, Kekoa Kekumano and Lukas Gage.

In the second season, in addition to Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries reconfirmed after the first chapter, we also find Murray Abraham, Adam DiMarco, Beatrice Grannò, Meghann Fahy, Tom Hollander, Sabrina Impacciatore, Michael Imperiali, Theo James, Aubrey Plaza, Haley Lu Richardson, Will Sharpe, Simona Tabasco, and Leo Woodall.

In streaming, the third season will continue to be distributed on Now in our country, while at home it will once again be an exclusive of HBO Max – or Max (and that’s it), if the rumors about the rebranding of the video on demand platform born from the merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery prove to be reliable.
