The third season of White Lotus is expected to film in Thailand.
THERE there were rumors that White LotusThe upcoming season will take place in Asia. An exclusive report from Variety claims that “multiple sources” have confirmed that the third season of the hit HBO show will take place in Thailand.
HBO declined Variety’s request for comment, although statements by showrunner Mike White in the season 2 finale seem consistent with the final result.
“Season 1 was all about the money and season 2 was about sex,” White said in a clip that aired after the season two finale.
He added: “I think the third season can be a satirical and funny take on death, Eastern religion and spirituality. It feels like another round at White Lotus could be a rich tapestry.”
White Lotus showcases the splendor of many of the fictional White Lotus resorts, although the first two seasons were actually filmed on the grounds of the Four Seasons hotels in Hawaii and Sicily.
If the show follows a similar filming pattern, possible filming locations in Thailand would mean cities where Four Seasons has a presence, including Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Koh Samui and the Golden Triangle.
Despite much speculation, neither the location nor the cast for the third season has been determined. However, considering how the second season ended, it is possible that next season will have a completely fresh cast.
White Lotus became a huge hit for HBO when the first season aired in 2021 and won several awards. It won 10 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Limited Edition or Anthology Series, writing and directing for White, and acting awards for stars Jennifer Coolidge and Murray Bartlett.
At this year’s Golden Globe Awards, the second season of the show won Best Limited Series or Anthology Series and Best Supporting Actress for Coolidge. White Lotus also won two SAG Awards: Coolidge won Best Actress in a Drama Series and the show won Best Television Drama Ensemble.
Season 1 and Season 2 of the series White Lotus currently airing on HBO.
