Series Three To Be Set In Thailand?

The White Lotus season 3 theories have been circulating ever since the climactic finale of season 2 – but we won’t stop until we know the facts, people! Now, it seems that the show’s creator, Mike White, is even stirring the pot… by dropping what seems to be a pretty big clue about the next location for the White Lotus hotel. Or is it?

ICYMI: the show’s writer and director Mike White sent a video message to journalist and The White Lotus superfan Evan Ross Katz, which he subsequently shared on his Instagram page. In said video, Mike revealed he is currently in Thailand, leading many to believe that he may just be scoping out the location for season 3.

Of course, Mike may well just be enjoying a holiday of his own. Judging by the video, he was simply having some sunset drinks at a luxurious resort – though as many commenters noted, he could just have easily been location scouting.

The actor and director has also previously hinted that the next series of The White Lotus could take place in Asia. He told Deadline: “It’s hard to think about the next race… But if we did, I think it’d be fun to maybe go to a whole different continent. You know, we did Europe, and maybe Asia, something crazy like that, that would be fun. ”

And in a YouTube clip from HBO entitled Unpacking S2 E7, he added: “The first season kind of highlighted money, and then the second season is sex. I think the third season would be maybe a satirical and funny look at death and Eastern religion and spirituality. It feels like it could be a rich tapestry to do another round at White Lotus. ”

Of course, social media has gone wild since Mike made his location reveal (true or not). “Mike White is in Thailand…  so White Lotus: Koh Samui? #WhiteLotus,” one fan tweeted. Evan himself even tweeted: “Not Mike all but confirming WHITE LOTUS: THAILAND in this video lol. ”

While many have taken Mike’s video as confirmation, there are still other theories about the next location of the show. On TikTok, users have suggested that there was a hint about the next series in the finale of season 2. In one scene, Daphne says: “See you in the Maldives! ” and her husband adds: “Less pasta, more scuba. ” Intriguing.

We’ll await confirmation from HBO, but until then, White Lotus: Thailand does have a nice ring to it.
