A trailer for HBO Max’s upcoming season of “The White Lotus” confirms rumors that the new season will take place where Brown University students vacationed over break.
“This new season is going to give audiences a glance into the comforts and calamities of the ultra-rich,” explained Mike White, creator of the show, peering over the sea of Brown University baseball caps while on location. “I’m thrilled that our writers put so much care into this social satire, which pulls back the curtain on the guests of luxury resorts.”
As he considered different locations for this upcoming season, White explained how one of the initial propositions was to film in Aspen, Colorado. Unfortunately, all of the five-star resorts were completely booked by the families of extremely wealthy Brown students.
“We really wanted to showcase the lives of the elite,” said White, as he passed by an array of private jets all arriving from Rhode Island’s T.F. Green International Airport. “The type of people who will flood Cancun for a week in March just because they can."
At press time, the new episode of HBO Max’s Gossip Girl was basically just a regular day for the New York City friend group.
