Tanya McQuoid is back
Even before the renewal for a second season, the creator Mike White had expressed the desire to bring back in the new episodes some of the characters known in the first season, in order to create a sort of universe of The White Lotus where there are various hotels around the world. However, she remarked, “I don’t think you can have all Season 1 guests on the same vacation again in a credible way.” Jennifer Coolidge played alcoholic heiress Tanya McQuoid, who arrived at the Hawaiian resort to scatter the ashes of her mother in the ocean, and her character was one of her most cherished. In the finale of the first season she had unexpectedly found her love and now we will see her again in Sicily interacting with new guests. “I think people are going to like Season 2, I say that based on the scenes I’ve seen. I think people are going to be really hooked on the show,” Coolidge told TVLine in a recent interview. We – as big fans of The White Lotus and of Jennifer Coolidge – we can only be happy to find Tanya McQuoid (strictly pronounced Mc-Kwad!) in the second season of the HBO dramedy.
