HBO’s The White Lotus announced its new cast members for Season 3, with Archie alum Jason Isaacs and The Family Plan actress Michelle Monaghan set to star, along with Leslie Bibb, Parker Posey, Dom Hetrakul and Tayme Thapthimthong joining the ensemble for the anthology resort dramedy. Natasha Rothwell, who had a breakout turn in season 1 as Belinda Lindsey, will also be returning.
Each season of series has seen guests check into an entirely different White Lotus resort, with the debut season set in Hawaii and the sophomore season taking place in Sicily. Production is slated to begin in and around Koh Samui, Phuket, and Bangkok next month, with show creator, writer and director Mike White back at the helm. Janet Graham Borba, executive vice president of HBO and Max, said in a statement: “We are pleased to partner with the Tourism Authority of Thailand to execute Mike’s creative vision and showcase all that the beautiful country of Thailand has to offer, as the next group of guests check in to the White Lotus.”
Tourism Authority of Thailand’s Thapanee Kiatphaibool also shared in a statement: “We are honored to have Amazing Thailand featured as the filming location for the highly anticipated upcoming season of ‘The White Lotus’ 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.
