WATCH: ‘The White Lotus’ returns with sex, mystery and Jennifer Coolidge, what more could you ask for?
Who’s ready to come back for The White Lotus?
Mike White’s scathing social satire returns to HBO this month with an all-new location and an all-new set. Good, almost all new.
Yes, the gay gods are watching over us as Jennifer Coolidge’s affection-hungry Tanya McQuoid is back for another stint! This time, she takes the stage in Sicily, bringing the beau she met in Hawaii (Jon Gries, also returning), as well as his brave assistant (Haley Lu Richardson).
“Whenever I stay at a White Lotus,” says Tanya of Coolidge, “I always have a memorable time. Still.”

But it looks like Tanya could be something of an angel of death for the swanky hotel chain since the trailer for the new season shows someone strolling the beach in a body bag. Do we have another murder mystery on our hands?
If that is the case, The White Lotus: Sicily offers many potential victims and suspects. Among the many vacationers we’ll meet are: The DiGrassos, three generations of men who seem to have their fair share of “women’s issues” (played by F. Murray Abraham, Michael Imperioli and Adam DiMarco).
There’s also a pair of sexy, young and affluent couples who apparently don’t know what to do with all the money they have. Aubrey Plaza and Will Sharpe play one pair, while Meghann Fahy and Theo James play the other. Sexual tensions inevitably arise.

And, while Murray Bartlett will be sorely missed, we’re excited to see what Italian actress Sabrina Impacciatore does as hotel manager this season. She’s sure to have her hands full (we just suggest she stays away from her guests’ luggage).
Fresh off an Emmys sweep in the ‘Limited Series or Anthology’ categories, Mike White’s The White Lotus: Sicily premieres on HBO (and simulcasts on HBO Max) on October 30.
