Pack your bags, because it’s time for another trip to a White Lotus resort. The White Lotus has been officially picked up for a Season 3 on HBO, weeks before Season 2 even finished airing. That means fans should get ready for a lot more ugly behavior in beautiful locales.
The White Lotus was a series born out of pandemic necessity; when the lockdowns forced film crews to pare down shooting locations, series creator Mike White came up with the idea for a series set entirely at one resort. Season 1 of The White Lotus was such a success that it was renewed for a second season, which premiered Oct. 30, 2022. A few weeks later, on Nov. 18, HBO announced the series will come back for a third season.
“Reflecting on The White Lotus’ humble, run-and-gun origin as a contained pandemic production, it’s impossible not to be awestruck by how Mike orchestrated one of the buzziest and most critically acclaimed shows,” Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO programming and head of HBO drama series and films, said in a statement. “And yet, he’s only continued to reach new heights in Season 2, which is the ultimate testament to Mike’s raw, unparalleled vision. His courage to explore the uncharted waters of the human psyche, paired with his signature irreverent humor and buoyant directing style, have us all dreaming of more vacation days at the resort we’ve come to adore. We couldn’t be more thrilled to get the chance to collaborate on a third season together.”
