The resort chain is said to have four different properties, and season three could take place in any of them: Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Koh Samui, or the Golden Triangle. The broadcaster producer HBO has not yet confirmed the news.
Although the creative team of the television series has kept most details about the upcoming season under wraps, the occasional hints of White and the patterns established by the previous two seasons offer some indication of what viewers can expect from season three. The showrunner is sure to keep the satirical tone that underpins The White Lotus, previously used to talk about the contradictions underlying wealth inequality and gender politics. However, White intends to open a discourse on a new, equally complex topic, focusing on Eastern philosophy and religious principles.

With the killing of the recurring character of Jennifer Coolidge, Tanya, in the season 2 finale, it seems unlikely that there will be any returns, even if the creator has revealed that he would be willing to bring the star back in some role (a possible spin-off on the character has also been hinted earlier). Furthermore, Mike White was recently spotted having dinner with Danny DeVitosparking internet speculation that the actor could appear in the third season of The White Lotus.

Even though production on the third season hasn’t started yet, the penchant for White to marrying humor with urgent cultural critique is sure to lead to another powerful and entertaining season of The White Lotus.
