Fans believe Johnny Knoxville has leaked the next “White Lotus” location
Johnny Knoxville was a little too candid in a recent interview and may have unknowingly revealed that The White Lotus is going to Japan.
The Jackass star sat down with Vulture to discuss the cancellation of his Hulu comedy series Reboot, but the conversation shifted to the upcoming season of hit HBO series The White Lotus (as per Talks is common). And Knoxville got it wrong.
“Mike White is a very close friend of mine,” Knoxville told Vulture of the series creator. “He and I had been to Tokyo together. I think there’s the next one… oh, I’m not telling.”
He paused before adding, “I might call him again once this is over.”
The first season of the Emmy Award-winning anthology series took place at a fictional luxury resort chain – the White Lotus – and set in Hawaii, where the overarching theme was wealth and excess. In Season 2, viewers met a whole new group of vacationers (apart from fan favorite Jennifer Coolidge) in Sicily, where sex is paramount.
For the next season, White hinted in an HBO Max featurette that the show could be set in Asia. “It would be kind of a satirical and funny look at death and Eastern religion and spirituality,” he said. “And it feels like it could be a rich tapestry to do another lap at White Lotus.”
He also toyed with the idea of taking The White Lotus to another continent.
“We just aired our last episode on the network yesterday, so it’s hard to think about the next race,” he told Deadline in October. “But if we did, I think it would be fun, maybe go to a whole different continent. You know we did Europe and maybe Asia, something crazy that would be fun.”
