The White Lotus was undoubtedly one of the most talked-about TV shows of 2022 – but after a dramatic finale, all good things must come to an end. Sob. Since season two of the show was a total success, you'll be happy to learn that another series has already been confirmed by HBO – so of course, talk has already turned to what drama the next White Lotus story will bring.
If you're unfamiliar with the show, you've surely seen just about everyone else talking about it on social media – but to recap: The White Lotus is a dark comedy series which follows the guests and employees of the fictional White Lotus resort hotel chain. Inevitably, their idyllic surroundings make way for increasingly darker (read: murderous) goings on… without giving too much away.
Series one of the show was set in Hawaii, while series two was set in Sicily. Read on to find out where the next The White Lotus resort will be…
Has The White Lotus been renewed for season three?
Praise the TV gods – The White Lotus will return. The show's creator, writer and executive producer Mike White gave an official statement in 2022, saying: “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 on The White Lotus.”
HBO also tweeted on 18 November: “I can’t wait to welcome you to the next White Lotus property. #TheWhiteLotus has been renewed for Season 3.”
A short teaser video sees waves crashing and wine sloshing behind the words: “Another vacation is in your future.” Eek.
Where will the next series of The White Lotus be set?
There's no hard facts, but creator Mike White has hinted that the next White Lotus resort will be in Asia in various interviews - and now Variety is convinced it's going to be set in Thailand.
