More cast members are checking into The White Lotus, Season 3!
Sex Education star Aimee Lou Wood, Justified’s Walton Goggins, Gen V’s Patrick Schwarzenegger, Maestro’s Sam Nivola and First Kill‘s Sarah Catherine Hook will all be joining the third instalment of the hit HBO series, as first reported by Variety.
Aimee confirmed the news on her Instagram page, sharing a photo of a headline announcing the news and simply captioning it, “GULP”.
Patrick also shared his excitement on his page, writing: “WHITE LOTUS!!!!!!!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! So thankful to Mike White for believing in me!! Can’t wait to embark on this journey with you and the rest of this team. Forever grateful! I watch this show every week with my family and every time we would watch they say ‘why can’t you audition for this show!!!’. So voila!”
It’s not clear what their roles will be as character details for season 3 are still tightly under wraps.
They’ll join previously announced cast members including Jason Isaacs, Parker Posey, Carrie Coons, Leslie Bibb, Michelle Monaghan, Christian Friedel, Tayme Thapthimthong, Dom Hetrakul, Morgana O’Reilly, Lek Patravadi and Shalini Peiris.
Actor Natasha Rothwell who portrayed spa manager Belinda in Season 1 will also be reprising her role.

Where will The White Lotus Season 3 take place?
The series, created by Mike White, will be set in Thailand this time, with production to begin in February around Koh Samui, Phuket and Bangkok.
“We are pleased to partner with the Tourism Authority of Thailand to execute Mike’s creative vision and showcase allthat the beautiful country of Thailand has to offer, as the next group of guests check in to The White Lotus,” HBO & Max’s EVP of Production janet Graham Barba said in a release earlier this year.
The Tourism Authority’s Thapanee Kiatphaibool added that the country is honoured to be involved and to be given the opportunity to showcase “the kingdom’s exotic natural beauty, rich historical sites and diverse landscapes.”
The last two seasons were set in Hawaii and Italy.
What is the plot of The White Lotus Season 3?
Much like the characters, the plot is being kept tightly under wraps too so we don’t know anything yet – except that in a post-season 2 interview on HBO, Mike White did share this little tidbit:
“The first season kind of highlighted money, and then the second season is sex and I think the third season, it would be a satirical and funny look at death, and eastern religion and spirituality.”
When Will The White Lotus Season 3 be released?
There is no release date set.
