The White Lotus will return for season two but not with the cast we know and love

The White Lotus Season 2

Coming to you today with some good news and some bad news. The good news, is that The White Lotus has been renewed by HBO for a second season, reports Variety,so for those who have been lapping up all that the show, set in a hotel in Hawaii has to offer, you're in luck! The shameful news, is that the show will be recruiting a new crop of characters for season two, because The White Lotus Hotel is moving! Which warrants new staff and new guests.

According to HBO, the second season will leave Hawaii “and follows a different group of vacationers as they jet to another White Lotus property and settle in temporarily amongst its inhabitants.” Which obviously begs the question of the next location, among other things, like who is iconic enough to replace Jennifer Coolidge? Not all hope is lost, though, as White did tease that some of the same characters would make a comeback in future seasons.

Series creator Max White, who is responsible for writing and direction through the first entire season, told IndieWire that his plan is for the series to follow an anthology-style, with a new resort in a different part of the world each season. Any guesses on where it might be?

You can stream The White Lotus on Binge, with the sixth and final episode premiering on Monday, 16 August.
