And so our annual trip to The White Lotus is over. It lasted seven episodes, but now we know exactly who ends up dead after a rollercoaster week in Sicily and who lives for another day.
It wasn’t easy to follow up on the first season, which was set in Hawaii with characters that were equally terrifying and compelling. But somehow creator Mike White pulled it off.
The second season had it all. intergenerational masculinity issues. PeakJennifer Coolidge. And a questionable nephew-uncle relationship dynamic to boot.
With a third season already confirmed, viewers are wondering where the storyline will take place next – and it seems that White has some plans in the works.
“The first season we focused on money and the second season is about sex,” he said in an HBO Max online featurette.
“I think season three might be kind of a satirical and funny look at death in Eastern religion and spirituality, it feels like it could be a rich tapestry to do another round at White Lotus.”
With North America and Europe now ticked off the list, it seems fitting that the next set of episodes take place on yet another continent.
But in the season finale, Daphne (Meghann Fahy) with her husband Cameron (Theo James) and reluctant vacation buddies Harper and Ethan (Aubrey Plaza and Will Sharpe) suggested the Maldives as the next getaway for twisted couples.
Was it just a dismissive comment, or will we actually find ourselves in South Asia rather than East Asia on our third outing? One Twitter user is super excited about the idea, writing, “Give Daphne a vacation to White Lotus Maldives (Season 3) with her cheeky friends (and Harper!)”

However, some on Twitter are holding onto hope for an entirely alternative climate, with suggestions for a White Lotus: Ski Edition arriving tight and fast.
Snow, rain or heat wave? Although we don’t know exactly where The White Lotus going next, one thing is certain: there will be millions ready to check back in.
