HBO announced today that The White Lotus has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes ahead of the satirical comedy's anticipated freshman finale this Sunday. The show's six-episode run has garnered critical acclaim and performed well for the cable network, with its performance on streaming service HBO Max ranking #1 among all of its series.

From Mike White, The White Lotus follows the various guests who come to relax and rejuvenate at an exclusive Hawaiian resort over the course of a week. But as each day passes, a darker complexity starts to emerge in these picture-perfect travelers, the hotel's welcoming employees, and the idyllic location itself.

Season 2 will leave Hawaii behind and instead follow a different group of vacationers at another White Lotus property, where they temporarily settle in amongst the inhabitants. Look for a return sometime in 2022.
