Who is in The White Lotus Season 2?
Since the new season takes place at a different location to the lush Hawaiian venue in Season 1, naturally different guests and therefore a different cast will be involved. Well, almost…
It was recently revealed that champagne-slinging queen Jennifer Coolidge will reprise her role in Season 2 and we’ve just copped our first look at the whimsical character’s return.

Joining Coolidge is the equally talented and iconic Aubrey Plaza who has been cast in The White Lotus Season 2 as Harper Spiller, a gal on vacay with her hubby and his mates.

“I was a fan of Season 1, but more importantly, I was a big Mike White fan,” Plaza told Variety of the series and its creator.
“So I’m very excited to work with him,” she added. “I’m very honoured to be on this television series, and I hope I don’t let everybody down. It seems like everyone watched this show.”
Other new cast members include Theo James (Divergent), Meghann Fahy (The Bold Type), Will Sharpe (Black Pond), Leo Woodall (Cherry), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), F. Murray Abraham (Mythic Quest), Adam DiMarco (Magicians, The Order), Tom Hollander (The Night Manager) and Haley Lu Richardson (Recovery Road).
Where is The White Lotus Season 2 set?
While Season 1 took place in gorgeous Hawaii, the new season will head to Europe, Sicily.
HBO told Variety that the second season will leave Hawaii “and follows a different group of vacationers as they jet to another White Lotus property and settle in temporarily amongst its inhabitants.”
A source close to the show confirmed to the publication that the new season will be filmed at Four Seasons San Domenica Palace in the exclusive Sicilian resort town of Taormina.
According to the San Domenica Palace’s website, the resort was closed to guests until April 1, which is when filming was taking place.
When is The White Lotus Season 2 being released?
It was just announced that the series is set to drop this October. Wee-hee!
White previously told IndieWire that the aim is for the series to follow an anthology-style, with a new resort in a different part of the world each season, which will obvs have different guests and a different kooky staff.
Light bulb moment: Can you IMAGINE a season set in Australia at, like, Hamilton Island or Byron Bay? Heaven!
He also teased that “some of [the original characters] would come back” in future seasons to play the same characters. Intriguing!
According to HBO, The White Lotus is “currently ranking #1 among all series on HBO Max,” and “has achieved consistent week over week growth for both premiere and digital audience, leading into the finale episode.”
