Over the years, HBO has developed a knack for creating hit shows. From The Sopranos to The Game of Thrones to House of the Dragon to Euphoria, the network just has a gift for putting forth some of the most provocative and critically-acclaimed programs TV watchers have ever seen. With that said, it should come as no surprise that HBO found another hit with The White Lotus

Created by Mike White, the series has already made quite an impact on pop culture since debuting in 2021. The show has amassed 10 Emmys, two Golden Globes, two Critics Choice Awards and serves as a hot topic on many social media platforms. With all this steam in the show's sails, there is just one pressing question fans have. When is season 3? 

Well, here's everything we know about The White Lotus season 3.

The White Lotus season 3 plot

The White Lotus follows hotel guests and employees as they navigate the complexities of their lives. For the guests, vacationing at a luxury resort should be a time of rest and relaxation, but that's often not the case as they spend their time in drama and chaos. Meanwhile, White Lotus employees usually have to help the guests with their conflicts, and yet, find time to deal with their own.

In the series' fictional realm, the White Lotus resort chain has locations all over the world. In season 1, the show zeroed in on the Hawai'i location, while season 2 honed in on the property in Italy. The location for season 3 is none other than Thailand. 

Although we don't have an official synopsis for season 3, Mike White dropped some hints for the series' future via the HBO short Unpacking Season 2: Episode 7 with Mike White. He mentions in the clip that the first season highlighted money and the second season sex. When talking about the third season he states, "And I think the third season, it would be maybe a kind of satirical and funny look at death and eastern religion and spirituality."

As more information about the season 3 plot becomes available, we'll pass along the update.
