Mike White has a myriad of talents, but “The White Lotus” creator knows reality TV. He appeared on “Survivor” back in 2018, which was a dream come true for White as he’s a long-time fan of the reality series. However, “The White Lotus” Season 2 will see him take that fandom to the next level, according to the showrunner.
“We had some ‘Survivor’ contestants make cameos in that very first scene,” he revealed to Variety. While he didn’t reveal which contestants are slated to appear on “The White Lotus,” he did state that the reality series has influenced aspects of the new season. “There’s definitely some ‘Survivor’ weaved into the show, that’s for sure.”
Of course, fans of “The White Lotus” can expect other surprises, too. Per Variety, actress Meghann Fahy described Season 2 as “action-packed,” as well as “sexier” and “more sinister right off the bat.”
