Michael Imperioli is first confirmed cast member for season 2 of The White Lotus
The Sopranos star has officially signed on to season 2 of dark comedy, The White Lotus, HBO confirms. Imperioli is the first lead cast member to be announced for the second season, while Jennifer Coolidge is rumored to be returning in some capacity.
Imperioli's character is Dominic Di Grasso, described as a man traveling with his elderly father and recent college-graduate son.
Mike White's satirical series became a breakout hit over summer 2021. The six-part show followed visitors on vacation at the White Lotus, an exclusive Hawaiian resort. The series is taking an anthology-approach to its storytelling moving on to new characters/vacationers and a new location — another as yet named White Lotus property. White is returning to write, direct, and executive produce.
White will executive produce alongside David Bernad, Nick Hall. Mark Kamine serves as co-executive producer.
Hopefully, The White Lotus will have a lower body count than The Sopranos, but Armond (Murray Bartlett) might beg to differ.
