The second season of ‘The White Lotus’ has ended in style and after that ending tremendous the desire for a new story and a season 3 are more than justified. But we are in luck, because the season 3 is already a reality. And it is that after the premiere of the third chapter of this latest installment, HBO confirmed that a third season of the fiction created by Mike White was renewed.
Although at first the production had been announced as a limited seriesthe popularity and the great reception that it has had by the public, has made the fiction becomes an anthology in which each season we will see new characters in a different White Lotus resort in different locations in the world.
while the Season 1 moved us to Hawaii and dealt especially with the class division and exploitation within the hotel sector, this season 2 has transported us to Sicily making visible the problems in the couple relationships and sex with a more unexpected touch with that tragic ending for one of the main characters. Thus leaving a closed main conclusion but several unresolved threads that, hopefully, we can have some glimpse in that long-awaited season 3.
Who will we see in season 3 of ‘The White Lotus’?
Although, in this second installment we have been able to see again Tanya McQuoid playing her character, Jennifer Coolidge, the question of whether we will see her again in season 3 it was resolved at the end of this second season.
However, the one that could return is Connie Britton, who saw Nicole’s life in the first installment, and that he has already explained that at first it was thought that his character would return in the second season:
“White wanted me to be in the second season, and there was an idea that I loved for the character,” he revealed to ‘Deadline‘. “Our intention is to do it in the third season,” admits.
“A part of the casting did not work out in the second season and we hope [hacerlo] in the third season. I would love to see a spin-off of every character in that series.”the actress ends up explaining.
Where will it take us and what will happen in season 3 of ‘The White Lotus’?
According to the details that Mike White has been uncovering in interviews, everything indicates that this time he wants to explore about “death, religion and oriental spirituality”.
“Let’s look in Asia and look for countries there,” he told ‘Vanity Fair’. “It may have something to do with spirituality. Eastern versus Western religion or Western people in an Eastern culture,” the creator confesses.
“Maybe after sex it would be nice to have something that is a little more heavenly or something that’s a little more out of the carnal I guess. But I don’t know, I really don’t know.” White confesses.
‘The White Lotus’: When will season 3 premiere?
for now no date confirmed premiere, and filming has not started yet. However, if we look back and take the second season as a reference, the filming it could take about 6 months, finally making the new installment will be released at the end of 2023 or at the beginning of 2024.
However, it seems that White needs a breather to clarify and structure their ideas well. And it is that as well explained in the katie couric podcast “needs to reboot.”
“I don’t have a lot of gasoline in the tank,” he admits. “So I need to figure out how to disconnect”finally confesses the director.
