The White Lotus will reopen its gates for a third season on HBO.
The premium cable outlet has revamped Mike White’s anthology series for another run. Details are scarce at this point, but HBO says the third season will follow a new set of guests at a different White Lotus resort.
The pickup comes next The White Lotus won 10 Emmys — the most of any program this year — in September and is halfway through a second season that has seen its audience grow. HBO says 7.6 million people have seen the season two premiere since the Oct. 30 bow, and that the Nov. 13 episode set a first-night record for the show across all platforms.
“Think about The White Lotus’ It’s impossible not to be in awe of how Mike has orchestrated one of the busiest and most critically acclaimed shows,” HBO programming director Francesca Orsi said in a statement. “And yet he continued to reach new heights in season two, which is the ultimate testament to Mike’s raw, unparalleled vision. His courage to explore the uncharted waters of the human psyche, combined with his trademark irreverent humor and lively directing style, have us all dreaming of more vacation days at the resort we love so much. We couldn’t be more excited to have the opportunity to collaborate on a third season together.”
White said, “There is no place I would rather work than HBO and there are no people I would rather work with than Casey Bloys, Francesca Orsi, Nora Skinner and their incredible team. I feel so lucky to be given this opportunity again and excited to reunite with my incredibly talented collaborators The White Lotus.”
The season two cast includes Emmy winner Jennifer Coolidge (reprising her season one role), F. Murray Abraham, Michael Imperioli, Aubrey Plaza, Will Sharpe, Theo James, Meghann Fahy, Adam DiMarco, Tom Hollander, Sabrina Impacciatore, Jon Gries (also a season one returnee), Haley Lu Richardson, Beatrice Granno, Simona Tabasco and Jack Woodall. It’s unclear for now if any of the actors will return for the third run.
