Following three Emmy victories this year, the highly praised HBO series White Lotus is set to return with a second season this week. The satire drama attracted international notice for its nuanced and gloomy portrayal of a group of affluent people visiting a beautiful resort, reflecting on numerous aspects of human nature while injecting the story with natural comedy.
The forthcoming second season of White Lotus will have a totally new cast, with only Emmy winner Jennifer Coolidge returning from the first. Taking a journey to the lovely city of Sicily, Italy this time, fans who loved Mike White’s viewpoint on many social problems without being blatant about them would be in for a lot of fun.
Francesca Orsi, a firm official, remarked in a message:
“Mike has once again created a classic HBO program, and it’s the talk of the town. We were ecstatic to learn where he wanted to travel next after wrapping off this great chapter in Hawaii, and we can’t wait to continue following him wherever he leads us.”
Season 2 of White Lotus will air on HBO on October 30, 2022, at 9:00 p.m. EST. It will be accessible on HBO Max as well.
Season 2 teaser for White Lotus: Welcome to Sicily and a slew of new colorful characters
Following the popular formula of following numerous rich families in a resort in Hawaii, Mike White’s program will this time transport viewers to the lovely city of Sicily, led by the talented Jennifer Coolidge starring as Tanya McQuoid, as seen in the trailer’s opening sequence. She seems unaffected by the events of the first season and continues to live her life on vacation. The Spillers (Aubrey Plaza and Will Sharpe) and the men of the Di Grasso family join her in the scheme (F. Murray Abraham, Adam DiMarco, and Michael Imperioli). In addition to the family conflict, the teaser adds another harsh dilemma.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, White Lotus season 2 actor Audrey Plaza claimed that this season would be extremely “different” from the first.
“I know it’s a lot to live up to, but Mike is so brilliant at differentiating the second season,… It’s still ‘The White Lotus,’ but it’s now in Italy, so it has a whole new atmosphere, and I believe people will be shocked.”
Mike White also talked with Entertainment Weekly about the second season of White Lotus, revealing that it would focus on the delicate subtleties of sarcastic humor and sexual politics.
“The mythology of Sicily, at least from the perspective of Americans, is the classic sexual politics and role play associated with things like opera, the mafia, and Italian romance. I believed it should be more focused on men and women, relationships, and adultery, with an operatic atmosphere, so I changed it.”
With the success of the first season, the approaching second season will pique the interest of fans all around the globe.
