‘The White Lotus’: Mike White Hints at Asia-Set Season 3 Focused on ‘Death and Eastern Religion’

“The White Lotus” just wrapped up its second season, but creator Mike White already has his eyes set on Season 3.

In the “Unpacking S2 E7” clip pegged at the end of the Season 2 finale, White hints that Season 3 may take place in Asia and focus on “death and Eastern religion and spirituality.”

“The first season kind of highlighted money, and then the second season is sex,” White said. “I think the third season would be maybe a satirical and funny look at death and Eastern religion and spirituality. It feels like it could be a rich tapestry to do another round at White Lotus.”

White has previously hinted at an Asia-set third season, telling Deadline before the Season 2 premiere, “I think it’d be fun to maybe go to a whole different continent. You know, we did Europe, and maybe Asia, something crazy like that, that would be fun.”

He added: “Jennifer [Coolidge] is my friend and everybody loved her in the first season, and I was like, ‘I can’t go to Italy without Jennifer.’ And maybe that’s still the case. Like, maybe you can’t go to Japan without Jennifer, either.”

A hint in the Season 2 finale might point to the exact location of Season 3, too. As Ethan (Will Sharpe), Harper (Aubrey Plaza), Cameron (Theo James) and Daphne (Meghann Fahy) eat their final dinner at the White Lotus in Sicily, Cameron makes a toast to friendship, and Daphne chimes in: “Next year, the Maldives!”

Perhaps the next White Lotus resort will be situated on the archipelago, which lies southwest of Sri Lanka and India.
