Anthology television series have been a growing concept of interest in recent years. With the rise of the whodunit and murder mystery genres, it was only a matter of time before the anthology style would be applied to the murder mystery genre. The mix of these two genres comes from The White Lotus, an HBO series that may indicate it’ll show you the inner lives of different groups while on vacation. Still, each series season has taken dark, unexpected turns just when the viewer may find it boring or predictable. As an anthology series, The White Lotus depicts a different vacation spot and its visitors for whatever amount of time, typically a week, that the guests remain at the destination. Below, we’ve detailed The White Lotus HBO series as a whole, as well as detail each season of the series so far and what fans can expect from The White Lotus season three, according to the creator, Mike White.
The White Lotus and Season One
As stated above, each season of The White Lotus has detailed a different vacation spot in which a White Lotus hotel has a location. The first season introduced all its first-time viewers to beautiful Hawaii and had an exciting cast to keep fans invested in the characters when not taking in the scenery. As for the cast of The White Lotus season one, in which only two characters were carried over into the second season of The White Lotus, including Connie Britton, Alexandra Daddario, Jennifer Coolidge, Molly Shannon, Sydney Sweeney, Jon Gries, Jake Lacy, Murray Bartlett, Fred Hechinger, Brittany O’Grady, and a few others. When The White Lotus premiered season one, the series was initially intended as a limited series. Still, HBO and Mike White renewed the series for a second season, ending the series’ short-lived limited series status.
The White Lotus Season Two
The White Lotus season two, opposite to season one’s Hawaii, was located in Sicily, Italy, and detailed slightly more upper-class characters and drama than the first season of The White Lotus, and was overall darker but indeed a slower developing season compared to season one of The White Lotus. On an international vacation, the guests for season two were the newly wealthy, newly married couples, an Italian family searching for their heritage, and others such as returning cast member Jennifer Coolidge, and the secret plot of the season that revolved around the character, as well as her husband that she met last season, portrayed by Jon Gries. While Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries were brought into The White Lotus season two, they were the only two familiar faces in season two. Even the assistant of Jennifer Coolidge was one of the more prominent characters throughout the season, as she heavily mingled with the Italian family also visiting Sicily through The White Lotus hotel to reconnect with their previous generations. From her mingling with the family’s youngest member, Albie, she became involved with someone in a different group thanks to Jennifer Coolidge’s character’s need for approval and friendship. The newer cast members for The White Lotus Sicily-focused season had detailed personalities portrayed by Aubrey Plaza, Theo James, Tom Hollander, Haley Lu Richardson, F. Murray Abraham, Adam DiMarco, Meghann Fahy, Beatrice Granno, Sabrina Impacciatore, Michael Imperioli, Will Sharpe, Simona Tabasco, and Leo Woodall. Other actors rounded out the rest of The White Lotus season two cast but were much more minor than the rest.
Upcoming Season Three
While The White Lotus season two just ended, season three of The White Lotus has many secrets about it. Still, as mentioned above, the creator of The White Lotus stated that he intends to bring more complexly detailed characters and extend the series to Japan, in the beautiful city of Kyoto, for season three. With the death of a reoccurring character at the end of season two, The White Lotus may be entirely fresh like the first season was to all viewers, or it may continue the story from Haley Lu Richardson’s character as the curious assistant to Jennifer Coolidge’s character, Tanya. Outside of Haley Lu Richardson’s possible return or a less compelling character from season two, season three will likely be entirely fresh. Still, as the limited series was surprisingly turned into a developing anthology series, the future of The White Lotus could go in which direction per season. However, even the slightest return to familiarity would appeal to the fanbase of the HBO series, and with a fan theory around Connie Britton, a return may happen. Overall, regardless of the direction of the future seasons of The White Lotus go, the series will also contain its key and essential elements of season-long suspense and questionable characters with even more questionable motives.
