In an interview with the portal, the filmmaker had already shared his desire to bring back certain characters from the previous season.
“We’ll take a different path the next time the public enters the White Lotus neighborhoods, but we’re no longer in Hawaii. This time we’re going to be in The White Lotus: San Tropez ‘or something like that, and I don’t think we’ll see a lot of guests from Season 1, but it’s going to be a Marvel Shared Universe thing where some of the between them will return. We had one-season deals with the cast, so we had to figure out who will be available. “
