Parker Posey and Jason Isaacs are amongst six new cast members added to the season 3 The White Lotus lineup, Variety reports.
The Best in Show and Harry Potter stars will be joined by Leslie Bibb of Iron Man fame, Dom Hetrakul, known for roles in Bangkok Dangerous and The Outrage, Michelle Monaghan from Gone Baby Gone and Tayme Thapthimthong (Farang and Skin Trade).
It had been previously reported that actress Natasha Rothwell would be returning as Belinda when the new season begins production – in February in Bangkok, Thailand.
Details of the plot for the upcoming season are not yet known, but in a 2022 interview with Variety, creator Mike White said the third instalment of the show, which was expected to air in 2025, would likely focus on Eastern spirituality.
“The first season kind of highlighted money, and then the second season is sex,” White said.
He told Entertainment Weekly in November the next season would be, “a supersized White Lotus. It’s going to be longer, bigger, crazier”.
“I don’t know what people will think, but I am super excited, so at least for my own barometer, that’s a good thing … I’m super excited about the content of the season,” he said.
HBO have partnered with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) for the upcoming series, and the organisation’s governor, Thapanee Kiatphaibool, said they were honoured to have “amazing Thailand” featured on the show, according to Variety.
“The kingdom’s exotic natural beauty, rich historical sites and diverse landscapes are the perfect settings to share our fascinating culture, fantastic cuisine, top-notch wellness and luxury offerings, and most importantly our people and Thai hospitality.”
