The White Lotus has already introduced viewers to the beauty of Hawaii and Sicily. Now with news it will return for a third season on HBO, fans are busy speculating about where it will be filmed next.
And some eagle-eyed fans think the show has already given a hint about the Season 3 filming location, New Zealand Herald reports.
The finale episode of Season 2, available to watch in Australia on Foxtel and Binge*, was full of epic twists and turns. However, fans believe a scene with Harper (Aubrey Plaza), Ethan (Will Sharpe), Cameron (Theo James) and Daphne (Meghann Fahy) hinted at where the show was heading next.
As they enjoy their final dinner together, they make a toast to their week in Sicily. At this point, Daphne says: “Next year, the Maldives.”
The throwaway line had viewers convinced it was a clue about where the next season would be filmed – and that Daphne may be the returning character.
On Twitter, many viewers said this would be a perfect direction for the show.
“The White Lotus Season 3 with Daphne as the one carry-over character in the Maldives casually telling all the other guests cheating on their spouse will make them feel better, please Mike White,” one person wrote.
“S3 is ‘White Lotus: Maldives’ with Daphne on a girls’ trip dishing therapy and revenge to all the other guests,” suggested another.
“If we don’t find Daphne checking into the White Lotus Maldives next season, preferably with a group of girl boss girlfriends, I’ll riot,” wrote another fan.
Show creator Mike White has already hinted that the next season of the series will head to Asia.
“The first season kind of highlighted money, and then the second season is sex,” he said during a behind-the-scenes video on HBO.
“I think the third season would be maybe a satirical and funny look at death and Eastern religion and spirituality. It feels like it could be a rich tapestry to do another round at White Lotus.”
Located in South Asia and full of luxury hotels, the Maldives could be the perfect destination.
