Season 2 of The White Lotus, a critically acclaimed HBO satirical dark comedy series written, directed, and created by Mike White, is set to premiere in 2022. Season 1 was highly praised for its bold critique of wake-up culture and the plot twists that marked its dark comedy and jaw-dropping visuals.
After its great success, HBO renews the series as an anthology. This means that the second season of the series will take place in another branch, with a new set of characters.
The White Lotus Season 2 release date – will it return?
HBO announced that the show will be back before the first season’s finale. However, there’s a catch. First of all, HBO is deeming it a “second installment” rather than a second season. That’s because The White Lotus is taking on the form of an anthology series.
The White Lotus would return for a second installment.
Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming wrote in a press release, “Mike [White] has once again delivered a quintessential HBO show, and it’s the talk of the town. 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.”
