The White Lotus has added another set of stars to the cast of its second season.

Deadline reports that Casualty actor Will Sharpe has been confirmed as a series regular, alongside The Bold Type actress Meghann Fahy and Sanditon's Theo James.

Will has been announced as Ethan Spiller, who along with his wife Harper, played by Aubrey Plaza, is on holiday in Sicily with another couple Cameron (James) and Daphne Babcock (Fahy).

Last month, Parks and Recreation's Aubrey Plaza was revealed as one of the new cast members playing a sun-seeker on vacation with her family and friends.

In the first series, Jennifer starred as socialite Tanya McQuoid, who went to the Hawaiian resort to scatter her mother's ashes.

The Legally Blonde actress has already shared her hopes for her character in the second series to the Los Angeles Times, if she does appear in the show.

"Well, I hope she's less sad," Coolidge said. "I hope she has some love and sex and stuff. I hope she gets all kinds of, you know, male attention."

The White Lotus season 1 aired on Sky Atlantic and is available on NOW.
