The White Lotus is an HBO comedy-drama anthology series created by Mike White.
It follows the guests and employees of the fictional White Lotus resort chain, whose stay is disrupted by their various dysfunctions. The first season takes place in Hawaii, and the second in Sicily.
Where Was the White Lotus Season 2 Filmed?
One of HBO’s best comedies to date returns with a new installment, and we’re in a different location this time! Season 2 of The White Lotus premieres on HBO this Sunday, October 30th, and takes viewers to Sicily, Italy for a brand-new adventure.
The first season of the Emmy Award-winning series followed a group of wealthy vacationers as they clashed with the staff at a resort in Hawaii. Tensions rose with each episode leading up to the season finale. We anticipate a similar pattern for the second season.
Season 2 of The White Lotus follows a mostly new group of resort guests in Sicily, with Tanya and Greg, reprised by Jennifer Coolidge and John Gries, respectively. You can tell from the trailer that we’ll be getting breathtaking views from this new vacation spot, and I’m sure I’ll be bumping Sicily to the top of my travel bucket list in no time!

The White Lotus Season 2 Cast
On February 28, HBO confirmed that Coolidge will return for the show’s second season. Tanya McQuoid, a woman traveling alone as she mourned her mother’s recent death, was her character in Season 1.
Tanya formed special bonds with Natasha Rothwell’s Belinda and Jon Gries’ Greg in Season 1, and we’re looking forward to seeing how she connects with the characters in Season 2. Coolidge’s performance earned her an Emmy nomination for Supporting Actress in a Limited Series.
According to Deadline, Aubrey Plaza will also appear in the new film. Plaza plays Harper Spiller, a woman who is on vacation with her husband and his friends.
Other cast members were revealed on February 10. Theo James and Meghann Fahy will play husband and wife Daphne and Cameron Babcock. Ethan Spiller, the husband of Plaza’s Harper Spiller, is played by Will Sharpe. According to Variety, Leo Woodall will play a “magnificent guest” staying at the White Lotus.
