Is The White Lotus on Netflix?

No, you won't be able to watch The White Lotus on Netflix. This is because the series was produced by and exclusively shown on TV broadcaster HBO Max in America.

Future seasons of The White Lotus will continue to air on HBO Max - as confirmed by show creator and director Mike White: 

"There’s no place I’d rather work than HBO and there’s no people I’d rather partner with than Casey Bloys, Francesca Orsi, Nora Skinner and their incredible team", he said in a press release confirming the fate of a season 3. 

How many episodes of The White Lotus?

Season one of The White Lotus is made up of six episodes, whilst The White Lotus season two consisted of seven episodes. Each episodes is approximately 60 minutes in length.

Reviews for both series have been strong, with critics praising creator Mike White for his clever storylines and the all-star cast for their performances. At the 2023 Golden Globes, The White Lotus won the Golden Globe for Best Limited Series, with cast member Jennifer Coolidge walking away with the Best Supporting Actress gong too.

Rotten Tomatoes gave season one a brilliant 85% rating on their Tomatometer. Then came season two - which was awarded a rare 94% rating.

"Though its true intentions can get a bit murky, gorgeous vistas, twisty drama, and a pitch perfect cast make The White Lotus a compelling - if uncomfortable - viewing destination," the site concluded of season one. 

Season 2 was similarly hailed: "Swapping its tropical trappings for Euro chic while focusing primarily on the corrosive influence of carnal desire, The White Lotus remains a cookie full of arsenic that goes down smooth."
