Aubrey Plaza is joining the cast of HBO’s The White Lotus for Season 2.
According to Variety, the actress will star as a series regular on the dark comedy, which was greenlit last summer for a second season. This time, however, the new season will become an anthology series and feature a new cast and new setting.
The six-episode first season was set in Hawaii at The White Lotus, an exclusive resort, and followed the lives of a group of vacationers. For Season 2, Plaza will join a new cast at a different White Lotus property at another location. Although details are thin, it’s being reported that she will play a character named Harper Spiller, who is on vacation with her husband and his friends.
The creator of The White Lotus is Mike White, who serves as the writer, director, and executive producer on the show. Previously, actor Michael Imperioli was announced as a cast member for the new season. There are also rumors that Season 1 star Jennifer Coolidge will make a return to the series.
Plaza commented on the news via Twitter with a single devil emoji. Maybe that means her character will be up to no good in the second season.
Fans of Plaza and the series were very excited about the addition of the Parks and Recreation actress to the show. Much of that excitement stems from the idea of Plaza and Coolidge sharing the screen. Which, same.
Even Plaza’s famous friends were happy for her.
Now, we just have to find out where Season 2 of The White Lotus will be set. Imagine if they take the series to Puerto Rico? We’d love to see it for Aubrey Plaza.
