The new trailer gives audiences a first look at Aubrey Plaza’s role in the series. Plaza plays a married woman named Harper Spiller, who is on vacation with her husband and friends.
Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries are set to be the only returning series regulars from Season 1 as the show shifts to a resort in Sicily, Italy, away from sunny Hawaii in its debut. In September, Coolidge took home an Emmy for best supporting actress in a limited series for her role in the show as grieving heiress Tanya McQuoid. In Season 1, Tanya mourns her late mother and befriends hotel spa staffer Belinda (Natasha Rothwell), whom she promises to help open her own business. Between seasons, Tanya also marries hotel guest Greg (Gries), who travels to Sicily with her. In the trailer, Tanya is suspicious that Greg might be cheating on her.
Coolidge’s Emmy win marked one of many for “The White Lotus,” which was nominated for 20 awards overall and took home 10, including writing and directing wins for series creator Mike White and an overall win for outstanding limited series.
Alongside Coolidge and Plaza, F. Murray Abraham, Adam DiMarco, Tom Hollander, Michael Imperioli, Haley Lu Richardson, Theo James, Meghann Fahy, Will Sharpe and Leo Woodall are also set to star in the anthology show’s second season. White, who has notably written for other shows and films like “Freaks and Geeks” and “School of Rock,” has returned to write and direct the new season as well.
The show’s sophomore season is set to premiere on the network and HBO Max at the end of the month. Watch the official trailer below.
