The White Lotus Renewed for Season 3 at HBO

By Jessica Lerner 

HBO’s Emmy-winning anthology The White Lotus has been renewed for Season 3 at HBO.

Created by Mike White, the show’s third season will follow a new group of guests at another White Lotus resort. The first season was set in Hawaii, and the second one was set in Sicily.

“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,” said Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming, Head of HBO Drama Series and Films, 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,” she continued. “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.”

The series premiered in July 2021 and racked up 20 Emmy nominations and 10 wins for its debut season. The second season debuted Oct. 30 and will conclude Dec. 11. More than 7.6 million people have already watched the first episode of Season 2, and last week it reached a record-breaking weekly high, taking the top spot on HBO Max overall.

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,” said White. “I feel so lucky to get this opportunity again and am excited to reunite with my amazingly talented collaborators on The White Lotus.”

Season 2 stars Jennifer Coolidge, Aubrey Plaza, F. Murray Abraham, Michael Imperioli, Adam DiMarco, Theo James, Meghann Fahy, Haley Lu Richardson and Will Sharpe among others.
