What is the plot of The White Lotus Season 3?
The plot is being kept tightly under wraps 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.
