The White Lotus would return for a third season at HBO!
With the first episode of season two garnering over 7.6M viewers and the series ranking as the most-watched title on HBO Max, what initially began as an experiment in contained filming during the pandemic has grown into one of the biggest and buzziest shows on the Warner Bros. Discovery network.
Hawaii served as the setting for the first season, which debuted in July 2021. In addition to Coolidge, other notable actors were Murray Bartlett, Connie Britton, Alexandra Daddario, Jake Lacy, Natasha Rothwell, Sydney Sweeney, Steve Zahn, Molly Shannon, Fred Hechinger, and Brittany O’Grady.
The Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea is where it was filmed. Twenty Emmy nominations and ten wins, including Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series, were given to the first season.
It was shot in the San Domenico Palace in Taormina and follows the visitors to a stunning Sicilian resort as they struggle with similar personal and professional issues, driving the hotel staff nuts.
“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,” White said. “I feel so lucky to get this opportunity again and am excited to reunite with my amazingly talented collaborators on ‘The White Lotus.’”
White created “The White Lotus” and also serves as executive producer and director. David Bernad and Mark Kamine also executive produce.
