The White Lotus

A bunch of privileged people go on a swanky vacation... what could go wrong?

Mike White’s comedy-drama (which at times borders on cringe-horror) was a breakout success during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, as The White Lotus took an all-star cast to a beautiful Hawaiian resort and let them unleash their worst, most privileged impulses. The first season starred Jennifer Coolidge, Steve Zahn, Sydney Sweeney, Jake Lacy, Alexandra Daddario, Connie Britton, Murray Bartlett, and more.

A second season, which will be set in Sicily, once more stars Coolidge and another equally impressive cast. Season two stars F. Murray Abraham, Aubrey Plaza, Theo James, Haley Lu Richardson, Tom Hollander, Michael Imperioli, and more.
