'White Lotus' Season 3 Heading to Thailand

Alas, Jennifer Coolidge’s unhinged Tanya McQuoid may not be coming back after she falls to her death in the Ionian Sea, but White Lotus will take solace in knowing that Mike White’s juicy satire is indeed returning for a third installment. And now, after months of speculation, its new setting has finally been revealed.

Variety After two seasons centered on the resorts of Maui and Taormina on Sicily’s east coast, the action will move to Thailand, the company said. While HBO declined to comment, multiple sources close to the production have confirmed the news to the publication, adding that White has been spending time in the country scouting locations.

Since the first two parts of the hit show were filmed at two Four Seasons properties – Maui at Wailea and San Domenico Palace Taormina — it’s also possible that the third season will take place at one of the luxury group’s other properties. It has four in Thailand: a stylish riverside resort in Bangkok; a hotel nestled in rice fields in Chiang Mai; a palatial tented camp in the forests of northern Thailand; and a spectacular retreat on Koh Samui. Given the beachy backdrops of The White Lotus‘s previous seasons – not to mention both seasons being set on islands – the latter option seems like the most likely, Although White may, of course, choose to shake things up this time around.

Even before the second season premiere, the producers hinted at the possibility of a third Asian installment, adding later that it might focus on themes that the series has yet to present study in depth. “Season one was kind of about money, season two was about sex,” he said in a behind-the-scenes video released after the finale. “I think season three could be a satirical and comical look at death and Eastern religion and spirituality.”
