What will The White Lotus season 2 be about?
While we can't fault season 1's impeccable cast list, it looks like the second season is set for a sizeable shakeup with an all new lineup of actors.
In a statement from HBO, the network confirmed season 2 would depart from its original setting of Hawaii and, "Follow a different group of vacationers as they jet to another White Lotus property and settle in temporarily amongst its inhabitants."
That said, creator, writer and director Mike White admitted to IndieWire that some of the key characters seen in the first season "would come back". We'll gladly take his word for it.
Who will be in the cast of The White Lotus season 2?
As White confirmed, the second season is set to bring a whole new cast to the forefront of its new, just-as-mysterious plot—but don't rule out any character crossovers just yet.
"I don’t think you can credibly have [all the same characters from season 1] on the same vacation again. But maybe it could be a Marvel universe type thing, where some of them would come back," the writer added to TV Line.
When will The White Lotus season 2 be released?
There's no confirmed date as to when we can expect a season 2 of The White Lotus. Given the first season is yet to finish airing and the show has only just been renewed by HBO for its second season, it may be a while off.
That said, television series can generally be written, filmed and produced within a year—so perhaps we can look forward to a second instalment around this time next year. Fingers crossed.
