Season 2 of “The White Lotus” was a huge hit. Find out what we already know about The White Lotus Season 3 here!

After the first season of the bitterly nasty HBO satire was nominated for an incredible 20 Emmys and won ten of them, the second season was also very well received by the audience and critics. So it’s no wonder that season 3 is already confirmed!

Like all HBO shows, you can stream “The White Lotus” on Sky.

The White Lotus: What it’s about?

In the satirical dramedy, we get to know the guests and employees in various branches of the luxury resort “The White Lotus”. So far, the seasons began with the death of an initially unknown person, whose backstory and clarification we then follow in a flashback of the previous week, asking ourselves the whole time the question: Who died?

But this suspense is not all that makes “The White Lotus” so addictive: The excellent cast, the intricate relationships between the characters, the impressive settings, and the catchy, dominant soundtrack also make for incredible viewing pleasure.

Where will season 3 of White Lotus take place?

The White Lotus is a critically acclaimed HBO comedy-drama series created by Mike White that follows the lives of various guests and employees at a luxury resort. The first season was set in Hawaii, while the second season will take place in a different location, presumably somewhere in Europe. But what about the third season? Where will the show take us next?

According to White, the third season of The White Lotus is already in the works, and he has some ideas for where it could be set. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he said: “I have some thoughts about where I would want to go for a third season. I would love to do one in Japan or India or somewhere with a different culture and vibe.” He also added that he would like to explore different types of resorts, such as wellness retreats or spiritual centers.

According to Variety, will take place at one of the luxury hotel giant’s four properties in Thailand, which are located in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Koh Samui and the Golden Triangle. Thailand’s Four Seasons resorts are spread across the city, country, jungle and beach, giving White plenty of settings to play with, if he so chooses.

The White Lotus Season 3 Release Date: Is White Lotus having a season 3?

There is no start date for season 3 of “The White Lotus” yet, but we can expect to wait until around the end of 2023 or the beginning of 2024. However, there is already some information about the setting and plot.

An interview with showrunner Mike White in Vanity Fair magazine revealed that season 3 of “The White Lotus” could be set in Asia after Hawaii (season 1) and Sicily (season 2). Meanwhile, it was revealed that White and the main cast were on their way to Thailand (via Deadline).

White also revealed that the theme this time could be about spirituality:

“We’re going to scout Asia and look at the countries there […]. My instinct is that it might have something to do with spirituality. Eastern vs. Western religion or Western people in Eastern culture. After the sex theme, it would be nice to have something more otherworldly and less lust-oriented […].”
