Mike White has a prepare (sorta) for The White Lotus time 3

If The White Lotus season 2 finale left you hanging, don’t fret: HBO has currently booked another excursion at the luxurious resort (aka: a season 3 renewal). And although creator Mike White hasn’t reported a lot about what he envisions for a 3rd period, it appears to after all over again contain a total various continent.

Outside of just the pitch of “more White Lotus,” White has stated he thinks the period will centre all around a main theme in the very same way the initially two seasons did.

“The first year form of highlighted funds, and then the next time is sex,” White mentioned in HBO’s inside of the episode featurette for the finale. “I think the third time would be possibly a satirical and humorous look at demise and Jap faith and spirituality. It feels like it could be a abundant tapestry to do a further round at White Lotus.”

[Ed. note: The rest of this post discusses the season 2 finale of The White Lotus.]

It’s not a lot to go on, but dying unquestionably seems like an acceptable concept immediately after the time 2 finale, which noticed supporter most loved Tanya (Jennifer Coolidge) die — kind of at the fingers of the assassins her husband employed, and also at her possess makes an attempt to fall into the skiff in the course of her escape.

These annihilation is the albatross of The White Lotus, the ostensible framing for just about every time so considerably being a mysterious dying that normally can take on a deeper resonance once you have observed the season. For White, Tanya dying felt appropriate for the character — “a larger sized than lifestyle female archetype” who wanted the great “operatic conclusion” due to the fact she noticed dying as the last “immersive experience” she had however to test.

But, with her staying the only character to carry among seasons 1 and 2, the loss of Tanya does at least go away the door open to carry back again additional of The White Lotus’ robust cast.

So far several forged customers have claimed they’d be open up to the notion. Jake Lacy, who performed season 1’s resident douchebag Shane, advised Deadline that “Mike texted [Alexandria Daddario, who played Shane’s wife Rachel] and I with this idea for an episode where by the two of us are talking for a 50 percent hour it is just the banality of wealthy persons on a boat.” And then of study course there is the time 2 finale, which sees Daphne (Meghann Fahy) toast to the notion of a long term holiday “in the Maldives.”

None of this is significantly to go on for time 3, which does not even have a release date still. But theoretically that indicates the sky’s the limit — up to and such as a new cast list and banger White Lotus concept track remix.

The to start with two seasons of The White Lotus are now streaming on HBO Max.
