Australia could be in the mix as the location for a fourth season of breakout hit “The White Lotus”.

Speculation has been mounting about what other locations the HBO show could go to next, and show creator Mike White was put on the spot during a Vivid Sydney media call this morning about whether Australia could play host to the iconic fictional resort.

“My dream would be to like hit every continent,” White said when asked about filming in Australia. “This is like, it’s own continent, basically. We kind of have to come to Australia if we keep going. It would be so fun. Obviously there’s a huge wealth of talent here and the beauty is inarguable, so, yea, it feels like it checks all the boxes.”

Jennifer Coolidge who starred in Season 1 and Season 2 of “The White Lotus”, said Sydney “really is like a fairytale” when looking out the window onto Sydney Harbour and the Opera House, and noted that if she had any say in a prequel location for the series “Australia gets my vote”.

Season 1 was filmed and set in Hawaii, while Season 2 was filmed and set in Sicily, Italy.

In the wide-ranging press call with journalist and writer Benjamin Law, Coolidge and White also talked about the U.S. writers strike, what next for their careers and if they actually had any fun on set while filming.

White is fresh to Sydney from doing some development for “White Lotus” Season 3. Both he and Coolidge are speaking tonight as part of Vivid Ideas Sydney.
