Greenlit means a project is officially a go, so all you have to do is follow these leads to stay up to date. You never know where you’ll find an opportunity to land an audition.

Pack your bags because “The White Lotus” will welcome guests again! HBO just renewed the hit Mike White anthology series for a third season. Find out more about the renewal, potential casting opportunities, and where Season 3 will potentially be set, below. 

Everything We Know About “The White Lotus” Season 3

Last week, HBO announced a Season 3 order of the hit anthology series, just a handful of episodes into the airing of its second season. Created by Mike White, “The White Lotus” follows a new group of guests each season at a different White Lotus resort. Season 1 debuted in July 2021 to critical acclaim and cultural success, earning 10 Emmy wins and 20 nominations, including the win for Best Anthology Series and Supporting Actor and Actress wins for Murray Bartlett and Jennifer Coolidge, respectively. The first season was set at the White Lotus’ Hawaii location and starred Bartlett, Coolidge, Connie Britton, Alexandra Daddario, Fred Hechinger, Jake Lacy, Brittany O'Grady, Natasha Rothwell, Sydney Sweeney, Steve Zahn, Molly Shannon, and others. 

The Sicily-set Season 2 debuted on Oct. 30 and is being released weekly through Dec. 11. Coolidge returns to a cast that stars Aubrey Plaza, F. Murray Abraham, Michael Imperioli, Adam DiMarco, Theo James, Meghann Fahy, Haley Lu Richardson, Will Sharpe, and others.

While the cabler has yet to announce where the third season will take place, White said in a recent interview with Deadline that Asia (and potentially more specifically Japan) may be the next destination. Like Season 2, other than Coolidge (though she is not yet confirmed for the third season), expect a full changing of the guard when it comes to the Season 3 cast.

Meredith Tucker is the casting director for the series. Barring some very speedy filming, don’t expect to see Season 3 until early 2024 at the earliest. While you wait, though, find out how you can get cast on the series, and then get inside the world of “The White Lotus” with recent interviews with Plaza and Coolidge.
