Jon Gries had plenty to say about his return to “The White Lotus” and what audiences can expect from Season 2 of the HBO comedy-drama at a premiere event for the series (via The Hollywood Reporter). The actor said that the new season “is going to shock people a lot more than the first, especially the last two episodes…some faces will freeze in shock.”
While the first season of The White Lotus had its fair share of jaw-dropping moments, it sounds like season 2 more than lives up to those shockers, though creator Mike White thinks the humor takes a slightly different direction. “I don’t know if it’s going to be that scatological [the first season]but I think the finale has some water chill moments for sure,” he said.
Speaking of themes in The White Lotus Season 2, Gries had more to add. “It’s about people’s inability to communicate properly; it’s very subtle and slow – it’s like taking a long walk with a pebble in your shoe,” he explained. Well, if the new season of the hit show, which includes newcomers like Michael Imperioli and Aubrey Plaza, can even partially build on the success of season 1, it will almost certainly be a win for HBO.
