Ever since The White Lotus' premiere on HBO on July 11, 2021, it has reached massive popularity with its satirical comedy. The series was created, written and directed by Mike White (of 2003's School of Rock fame).
The HBO original mini-series/anthology is set in Hawaii and explores unprecedented turns in the lives of the guests staying there. The show currently has a respectable 87% critics score in Rotten Tomatoes. Meanwhile, the audience score is 79%, and that is bound to increase after the show is available in other countries.
On August 10, Deadline reported that HBO renewed The White Lotus for a second season.

The last episode (6) of the series dropped at HBO Max on August 15, so all episodes are now streaming on the platform (for the USA).
The show will drop on Sky Atlantic at 9 pm on August 16 (Monday) in the UK. Furthermore, it will also be available for streaming with a NOW Entertainment Membership pass. A 7-day trial for the pass can be availed, but beyond that, the subscription starts from £9.99 a month.
In countries (like Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and others) where HBO Go is available, The White Lotus will be available from August 16. Subscriptions range around $5 per month for most of these countries.
The show is available on the Binge streaming service in the country, and the first episode reportedly dropped on July 12.

In other countries (like India) where neither HBO Max nor HBO Go is available, the show is expected to come via Amazon Prime. The streaming service had previously acquired streaming rights for several HBO original properties like Euphoria.
