HBO’s hit series The White Lotuhas landed its first cast member for its upcoming third season, as Natasha Rothwell, who played spa manager Belinda Lindsey, has been officially cast.

For her work as Belinda Lindsey in season one,  was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series at the Emmy Awards.

At this time, the only other plot detail that’s known about season three is that it will take place in Thailand. When speaking about the third season following the conclusion of season two, series creator Mke White said:

“The first season kind of highlighted money, and then the second season is sex. 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.”

The White Lotus has been a massive hit for HBO ever since it premiered in 2021, as its first two seasons have since racked up 10 Emmy Award nominations. Originally intended to be a six-part limited series, the show’s unexpected success led to HBO renewing the series for a second and third season.

As pointed out by Variety, Rothwell isn’t only known for her work on The White Lotus:

Rothwell is best known for playing Issa’s (Issa Rae) close friend Kelli in HBO’s Insecure, which she also wrote, produced and directed on. Her other prominent credits episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Bojack Horseman, Bob’s Burgers, and American Dad. Up next, Rothwell serves as creator and star of the Hulu comedy series How to Die Alone via an overall deal at ABC Signature with her Big Hattie Productions banner.

Given that season three of The White Lotus has identified its location and cast its first actor, it’s likely that production begins this sometime year.
