Kaftans, ironic slogan T-shirts, and withering stares at the ready: The White Lotus season 2 is happeningand Jennifer Coolidges delightfully spacey heiress Tanya McQuoid will undoubtedly be center stage.
On August 3, Variety revealed that Mike Whites razor-sharp satire about ridiculously privileged guests at an impossibly luxurious resort will be back, presumably with an increase of dissatisfied CEOs, terrifying twentysomethings, and raging general managers, this October. The announcement was associated with the initial still from the brand new season, which sets the tone for the hilarity that’s sure to ensue: a graphic of Coolidges Tanya pouting serenely while wearing bug-eye sunglasses and a sugary pink dress, her blonde curls wrapped up in a matching chiffon scarf.
The acting legend may be the only series regular to be reprising her role because the show shifts from the fictional White Lotus groups property in Hawaii to an equally spectacular one in Sicily, in which a new group of insufferable visitors will feud using its beleaguered workers. The ensemble cast for the seriess first season was a formidable mix of established names and rising stars Connie Britton, Sydney Sweeney, Murray Bartlett, Alexandra Daddario, Natasha Rothwell, and Brittany OGrady among thembut, these times, its somehow a lot more impressive. Because of make an appearance? Comedy stalwart Aubrey Plaza as Harper, a female on holiday with her husband and his friends; Oscar-winning screen veteran F Murray Abraham as Bert Di Grasso, an elderly man holidaying along with his son and grandson; THE NIGHT TIME Managers Tom Hollander as Quentin, a British expat; Support girlss Haley Lu Richardson as Portia, a woman traveling with her boss; and The Bold Types Meghann Fahy and Sanditons Theo James as husband-and-wife pair Daphne and Cameron Babcock.
Are you aware that locals forced to massage their egos, three Italian actors are also cast in significant parts: Sabrina Impacciatore as Valentina, the manager of the White Lotus Sicily; and Beatrice Grann and Simona Tabasco as Mia and Lucia, two young Sicilians who’ve a habit of hanging out the hotel. Could any occasion romance be on the cards for just one of them, since it was for Kekoa Kekumanos Hawaiian hotel staffer Kai with Brittany OGradys Paula in season one?
While we can say for certain that the upcoming seven-part series will concentrate on the exploits of guests and employees on the span of weekly, just as the initial installment did, other questions also remain. Will season two open with the mysterious death of a significant character, as season one did? And what state will we discover the eccentric Tanya in this time around? The latter was partially answered on July 18, when HBO debuted its first footage from The White Lotus season 2 in a preview of soon-to-be-released shows. It featured Impacciatores Valentina welcoming Plazas Harper, Fahys Daphne, and Jamess Cameron to the resort, and Tanya speeding down a picturesque Sicilian hillside on the trunk of a Vespa. In the brief clip, she seems to have embraced la dolce vita, but just how long might it be before her neuroses rise to the top once more? Well learn quickly enough.
