If you missed Natasha Rothwell on the second season of HBO Max’s ‘The White Lotus’ (like we very much did) don’t worry because she will be back for season 3.
Belinda Lindsey, the fan-favorite spa manager who was duped by wealthy resort guest Tanya McQuoid (Jennifer Coolidge) in the first season, will make her return alongside a new cast of characters. Although details of the plot and characters are being kept secret, creator Mike White has hinted that the season will tackle the topic of death and Eastern religion and spirituality, which could tie in nicely with Belinda’s wellness background.
“The first season we highlighted money and then the second season is sex and I think the third season, it would be maybe a kind of satirical and funny look at death in Eastern religion and spirituality — it feels like it could be a rich tapestry to do another round at White Lotus,” he said.
“The White Lotus” is an anthology series that explores the lives of the guests and employees at the fictional White Lotus resorts in different locations. The first season was set in Hawaii and focused on the wealthy guests staying at the resort, while the second season was set in a different location and featured a new cast of characters.
Despite her limited screen time in the first season, Rothwell’s performance as Belinda Lindsey earned her an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie. Belinda was portrayed as a hard-working and empathetic character who was struggling to make ends meet.
As with previous seasons, the show will feature a new cast of characters, with Rothwell’s Belinda Lindsey serving as a connecting thread between the different seasons.
