Production for the third season is scheduled to begin in Thailand in February, maintaining the series’ tradition of capturing the essence of its tropical settings. The importance of filming on location was emphasized by Jennifer Coolidge, a veteran of The White Lotus, who highlighted the vulnerability felt while on a boat with unsupportive companions.
Mike White, the show’s creator, provided insights into the upcoming season, promising a fresh mystery while maintaining connections to previous seasons. Discussing the potential for an all-star season in the future, White commented, “If the show goes on for a couple of seasons, it would be fun to have an all-star season.”
While details about Natasha Rothwell’s return as spa manager Belinda from season one remain undisclosed, Jennifer Coolidge hinted that Mike White must have exciting plans for the character.
The third season promises to deliver the same compelling storytelling and unexpected twists that have become synonymous with The White Lotus. The addition of seasoned performers like Carrie Coon, Leslie Bibb, and Jason Isaacs only heightens the excitement for another gripping chapter in the acclaimed HBO series.
