The show also tapped topics such as class disparity, money, status, and privilege. With that in mind, The White Lotus season 2 is sure to be a series that will grip audiences everywhere. Especially with its all-star cast and interesting plot points. Be sure to stay tuned for more information about the show as it becomes available!
What will season 2 follow?
Till now no update regarding the story is released but one thing is for sure. The series will proceed in another White Lotus lavish resort where new events and mystery will unfold. “I don’t think you can credibly have [all of the season one characters] on the same vacation again,” creator Mike White said in an interview with IndieWire. “But maybe it could be a Marvel universe type thing, where some of them would come back. We only made one-year deals with the actors, so we’d have to find out who is even available.”
What Critic reviews on The White Lotus Series?
So far the series has accumulated mostly mixed reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. It gave the series an approval rating of 88% based on 84 critic reviews, with an average rating of 8.40/10. The critical consensus reads, “Though its true intentions can get a bit murky, gorgeous vistas, twisty drama, and a pitch-perfect cast make The White Lotus a compelling—if uncomfortable—viewing destination.” However, with only six episodes released so far, it’s possible that the series could still turn things around in season two. Fans of the show have taken to social media to express their dismay over some of the choices made in season one – most notably the romantic pairing of two characters who are supposed to be brother and sister.
But others are hopeful for what season two might bring. Matthew Jacobs of TV Guide rated it 4.5 out of 5 and wrote that it is “some of the year’s best television thus far.” So, take a happy breath because season 2 is coming up. Though no dates have been announced, let’s just wait a bit. Till then watch out for season 1 if you have not watched. The series is going to stick you to your seats.
