The White Lotus: When does season 2 premiere?

Season two of hit show The White Lotus has landed a US premiere date.

The Emmy-nominated comedy-drama – which followed a week of misadventures of the guests and employees at a tropical resort in its debut season – will make its return with a location change.

On Wednesday (3 August), the streamer revealed that its second season will take place in Sicily and will premiere on HBO Max in the US in October.

A specific day has yet to be announced.

The forthcoming series will follow a new set of hotel employees and privileged vacationers. However, Jennifer Coolidge will reprise her role as fan favourite Tanya McQuoid.

Additional cast members include F Murray Abraham, Adam DiMarco, Tom Hollander, Michael Imperioli, Aubrey Plaza, Haley Lu Richardson, Theo James, Meghann Fahy, Will Sharpe, and Leo Woodall.

The first season of the limited anthology series received 20 Emmy nominations for the 2022 September award show for Outstanding Limited Series, Writing, Directing, and numerous acting nods.
