‘The White Lotus’ Season 2 Is Around the Corner, but the Cast Is Totally Different

Check-in for fall’s hottest hotel begins in October, so prepare accordingly. Season 2 of HBO’s smash hit The White Lotus is on the horizon, set on a new backdrop with a new cast and a totally mysterious plot. The season 1 cast, while disembarked from the resort, are still reaping the rewards via the show’s 20 Emmy nominations. Cast members Murray Bartlett, Jake Lacy, Steve Zahn, Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Alexandra Daddario, Natasha Rothwell, and Sydney Sweeney all received 2022 Emmy nominations for outstanding acting in the limited series.

The series’ second season will not see the return of any of these actors, save for Jennifer Coolidge (thank god). That said, the success of the first season has opened the door for a new cast of characters, equally as scene-stealing as their predecessors. Keep reading to see who’s checking in to White Lotus: Sicily.

About her: Our reigning queen of the screen, of course. Aubrey will be checking into White Lotus: Sicily as Harper Spiller, a woman on vacation with her husband plus another couple. “Harper is kind of a no-nonsense kind of tough on the outside, professional woman with a soft, mushy inside,” Aubrey told Newsweek of her character. “Her journey is with her husband played by Will Sharpe and it’s about just marriage and the kind of peaks and valleys of marriage and I think the journey she goes on is kind of a psychological one and it’s kind of about just someone’s ideas of what they think their relationship is.”
