This article is a preview for The White Lotus season 2, episode 2 and contains details of the release date, time, and where to watch online. It may contain spoilers for previous episodes.

The White Lotus is a satire of the overprivileged set within the exclusive grounds of a pampered hotel chain. The first season, which did so well for HBO that it was renewed for a second season despite being billed as a limited series, was set in Hawaii, while the second is set on a lush Sicilian island, but both share the same essential DNA — they’re about the hollow lives of the filthy rich, not all whom will survive.

The show’s creator Mike White isn’t crafting a murder mystery here, though. The deaths are, in many ways, inevitabilities, the cost of cramming so many egos, delusions, and unhealthy dynamics into one location. And the location itself is beautiful, even if the people in it tend not to be — at least on any level other than the surface. Alternately hysterical and terrifying, the second season promises another eight episodes of sand, sun, and scandal.

The White Lotus season 2, episode 1 introduced a whole batch of new guests (and a couple of old ones) arriving on a new resort with some new and familiar problems. Here’s what happened:

  • Tanya and Greg from the first season are now married and are holidaying at another White Lotus, but their marriage doesn’t seem to be going all that well.
  • Tanya has brought her assistant Portia along, but Greg would rather she wasn’t there, so Tanya instructs her to hide away in her room.
  • Two couples, Harper and Ethan Spiller and Cameron and Daphne Sullivan, are holidaying together. Ethan and Cameron are old college buddies but the two couples have little in common.
  • The Di Grasso family — Dominic, Bert, and Albie — are in Sicily to help Bert visit the village where his grandmother was born. Albie develops a flirtatious relationship with Portia and we learn Dominic has solicited the services of a prostitute named Lucia.

Where to watch The White Lotus Season 2 online

In the U.S., The White Lotus is available on HBO and HBO Max. The latter is available with a subscription: The ad-free package runs $14.99/month or $149.99/year while the ad-supported model will set you back $9.99/month or $99.99/year.

In the UK, The White Lotus is available on Sky Atlantic and Now TV.

How many episodes will The White Lotus Season 2 have?

Unlike the first season, which ran for eight episodes, The White Lotus season 2 will have 7 episodes.


There is no official synopsis to give anything away, but here are some general predictions:

  • Greg is obviously hiding something and I imagine this marriage won’t last the season.
  • Portia and Albie will develop a relationship that continues to put Portia at risk of being discovered in and around the hotel.
  • Harper and Cameron will develop a relationship.
  • It’s obviously far too early to speculate about who the dead body (or bodies!) might be, but look out for that in future updates.
