Season 2 of The White Lotus, a critically acclaimed HBO satirical dark comedy series written, directed and created by Mike White, is all set to be released in 2022. Season 1 was much-praised for its bold criticism of woke culture and plot twists that marked its dark comedy and jaw-dropping visuals.
After its great success, HBO is renewing the series as an anthology. This means that the second season of the series will be taking place in another branch, with a new set of characters.
The original ensemble cast for the series entailed Connie Britton, Alexandra Daddario, Murray Bartlett, Jake Lacy, Natasha Rothwell, Molly Shannon, Steve Zahn, Sydney Sweeney and Jennifer Coolidge. The series has already put Aubrey Plaza, F. Murray Abraham, Tom Hollander, Adam DiMarco, Haley Lu Richardson and Michael Imperioli on board for its second run.
Reportedly, four more actors, including Theo James, Meghann Fahy, Will Sharpe and Leo Woodall, are also joining the promising ensemble cast.
