HBO renews The White Lotus for season 2
The show, which is due to arrive in the UK on 16th August, has earned rave reviews from critics in the US.
HBO has renewed its acclaimed social satire The White Lotus for season 2.
The broadcaster has confirmed that the show will now take the form of an anthology with this next outing focusing on a different group of ultra-wealthy holiday makers in another resort.
However while nothing’s been confirmed, during an interview with IndieWire creator Mike White said if the show was to return he would potentially bring “some of the characters back.”
All six episodes of The White Lotus season 1 were written and directed by White, who previously helmed HBO’s cult favourite Enlightened starring Laura Dern.
Set at an exclusive hotel in Hawaii, this first outing explored the dark, complex lives of its many seemingly perfect guests and employees along with the events that lead to one of them ending up dead.
It featured a large ensemble cast that included Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Alexandra Daddario, Murray Bartlett, Steve Zahn, Jake Lacy, Fred Hechinger and Molly Shannon.
“Mike has once again delivered a quintessential HBO show, and it’s the talk of the town,” said Francesca Orsi, EVP Programming at HBO. “We were thrilled to hear where he wanted to go next, after closing this epic chapter in Hawaii, and can’t wait to keep following him wherever he takes us.”
