If you’ve been on the internet, you may have heard of a show called The White Lotus. Its much-awaited second season is upon us, but if you don’t know how to watch The White Lotus season two online for free, don’t worry because we have the secrets you need to stream it in time for the new season.

The White Lotus—created by director and writer Mike White, who’s also worked on shows and movies like Enlightened, Magic Mike, Pitch Perfect 3 and Freaks and Geeks—premiered in July 2021. The first season of the six-episode dark comedy stars Jennifer Coolidge, Connie Britton, Steve Zahn, Alexandra Daddario and Natasha Rothwell as guests and employees at the White Lotus, an exclusive Hawaiian resort that looks like an idyllic paradise on the outside but reveals itself to be a dark breeding ground for mystery and murder. Season two takes us to Sicily, following “a different group of vacationers as they jet to another White Lotus property and settle in temporarily amongst its inhabitants.”

Since its premiere, The White Lotus has been well-received by critics for its “sharp social satire” of its predominantly white guests and their interactions with the resort’s staff. In August 2021, news broke that The White Lotus had been renewed by HBO for a second season.

In an interview with Indiewire, White revealed that he imagined the series as more anthology-style set at a different resort each season. Though he plans for each season to have a whole new cast of characters, he also told Indiewire that he hopes some of season 1’s actors “would come back” to play the same characters in future seasons. “We only made one-year deals with the actors,” White said. “So we’d have to find out who is even available.” If you love dark comedies, mystery and murder, The White Lotus is a must-watch. But if you don’t have an HBO subscription (or don’t want to pay for one), you may want to know how to watch The White Lotus online for free. Well, read on to do just that. Happy binge-watching.
