Mike White Explains Why He Killed Who He Killed On Last Night’s Season Finale Of “The White Lotus”
Last night, White Lotus fans said “Arrivederci!” to the show’s sexy Sicilian second season. This finale had everything: cheating (duh), scamming, wrongful termination, crimes against fashion, and… MURDER! Most importantly, the identity of the floating body was finally revealed. Obviously, a giant, throbbing ***SPOILER ALERT*** for the rest of this post…
“The White Lotus” Has Been Renewed For A Third Season
And now for some good news: The White Lotus has been renewed by HBO for a third season. The renewal comes three episodes into the second season, which is currently airing. Season one was set at the White Lotus resort in Hawaii, while season two is set at another White Lotus in Sicily. Jennifer Coolidge’s Tanya McQuoid and her shady-ass husband, played by Jon Gries (aka Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite) are the only characters who have appeared in both seasons. So, where will Jennifer/Tanya travel next? Is there a White Lotus in Iceland? The people need to see Jennifer/Tanya get her tongue stuck to the wall of an ice hotel.
The “Frasier” Revival Is Actually Happening
Last February, Paramount+ announced that they were developing a Frasier revival, and Kelsey Grammer had signed on to star and produce. A year-and-a-half later, and Deadline is reporting the reboot has been officially picked up for series. Dr. Frasier Crane will be in a new city with new characters. So now Frasier has jumped from Boston to Seattle to… wait, where is this shit set? Please tell me it’s a fish-out-of-water story set in the Deep South. “You want a 1945 Chateau Petrus? Uhhh, this is MAGA country, Doc!” Actually, maybe that’s a little on-the-nose, considering Kelsey Grammer’s real-life politics…
HBO Picked Up “House Of The Dragon” For A Second Season
This past Sunday, the Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon, premiered on HBO. So many people tried to stream it at once that HBO Max actually crashed for some users. By the next morning, the premiere had scored 10 million viewers, making it the biggest series debut in HBO history. Five days later, another 10 million people jumped on the bandwagon. It’s a hit, a very palpable hit! And today, HBO announced that they’ve already renewed the show for a second season. Ugh, I hate to say it, but… I’m in. And if House of the Dragon shits the bed harder than Game of Thrones did in its final season, I only have myself to blame. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice? I’m a bigger moron than anyone who ever put their trust in (that sexy beast) Littlefinger.
The Weeknd Showed A New Teaser Trailer For His HBO Drama “The Idol” At His Las Vegas Concert
Anyone who’s been keeping tabs on the progress that Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye has been making with his and Sam Levinson’s HBO drama The Idol has had to keep their head on a swivel as the direction of the show and the members of the cast have been as back and forth as The Weeknd and Bella Hadid’s messy past relationship status. Last month, a teaser featuring cocaine, sex, and darkly lit rooms was released, which was to be expected since Sam, the controversial director of Euphoria, and The Weeknd, who loves coke, are at the helm. No premiere date for the show–which is about “a self-help guru and leader of a modern-day cult, who develops a complicated relationship with an up-and-coming pop idol–has been given, but we may be getting closer since this weekend The Weeknd played a new teaser for The Idol at his Saturday night concert in Las Vegas, according to Variety.
David Hyde Pierce, Who Stars In The New HBO Max Series “Julia”, Calls Julia Child’s Homophobia “Confusing”
Oh good, an excuse to write about David Hyde Pierce, my first ever celebrity crush. The 62-year-old sex symbol stars in the new HBO Max series Julia, which is based on the life of Julia Child. David plays Julia’s husband, Paul Cushing Child, and his Frasier co-star, Bebe Neuwirth, plays Julia’s best friend. The pair sat down for a joint interview with Page Six, and they discussed the fact that Julie and Paul were homophobic. David says it’s “confusing,” especially since Julia was an icon to the gay community.
