Season 2 of The White Lotus will feature Michael Imperioli, who is most known for his role as Christopher Moltisanti in The Sopranos. Imperioli will play Dominic Di Grasso, who visits the White Lotus resort with his elderly father and son, a recent college graduate, according to Variety.
Imperioli is the first member of the Season 2 cast that HBO has revealed. Jennifer Coolidge, who starred in Season 1 of the show, was believed to have joined the cast in October. At the time, HBO declined to respond.
The first episode of the series aired in July of 2021. Over the course of six episodes, the first season, set at the fictional White Lotus resort in Hawaii, follows a group of tourists with seemingly ideal lifestyles. Connie Britton, Natasha Rothwell, Steve Zahn, Murray Barlett, Alexandra Daddario, Fred Hechinger, Jake Lacy, Sydney Sweeney, and Brittany O'Grady star alongside Coolidge.
The White Lotus was an instant smash for HBO, and it continued to do so throughout the season, with the final episode getting 1.9 million viewers. It was also a critical hit, receiving widespread acclaim.
Imperioli's most recent work includes recreating his Sopranos role in Alan Taylor's film The Many Saints of Newark, as well as recurring roles in Blue Bloods as Angelo Dundee in Regina King's film One Night in Miami. He'll next be seen on Hulu's This Fool.
Meanwhile, The White Lotus is a sharp social satire directed by Mike White that follows the escapades of many staff and guests at an upscale Hawaiian resort over the course of one life-changing week.
As the darker dynamics of the seemingly picture-perfect travellers, cheerful hotel employees, and idyllic locale itself emerge with each passing day, this biting six-episode series gradually reveals the complex truths of the seemingly picture-perfect travellers, cheerful hotel employees, and idyllic locale itself.
Mike White created, wrote, and directed the series. White, David Bernad, and Nick Hall executive produced it; Mark Kamine co-executive produced it.
