'Never heard that before': Connie Britton responds to popular 'The White Lotus' fan theory
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Popular HBO Max show 'The White Lotus' came out with its second installment late last year in October 2022. The seasons have been conceived as purely standalone, except for Jennifer Coolidge who has been a part of both seasons. However, fans have been adroitly at work pushing theories that link the two seasons one way or another. One popular theory has been that Season 1's Nicole Mossbacher (Connie Britton) might be the sister of Abby (Laura Dern), the wife of Dom (Michael Imperioli), who appeared in Season 2 through many phone conversations.
The dark anthology series is directed and written by Mike White and revolves around a fictional resort called White Lotus, where various psychosocial ups and downs play spoilsport with the guests' plans. The show is shot at exotic locations, serving dark comedy along with beautiful scenes from Hawaii and Sicily.
Speaking with Variety at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, Connie Britton remarked about the fan theory, "Oooh, I've never heard that before." She also shared that she would be more than willing to come back to the show.
"Of course I would [return]," she said. "Mike is someone I'd admired for a long time in my career, and I was fortunate enough to work with him on 'Beatrice at Dinner,' which he wrote," Britton added. "I think he's a genius, but also a kind genius. I have loved collaborating with him and I'll say yes to him 'til the end of time."
Mike White had announced plans for a third season while 'The White Lotus' Season 2 was still airing. With Britton's new revelation, fans are wondering if Jennifer Coolidge will also be back this season, especially considering how Season 2 panned out.
'The White Lotus' is currently available on both Disney+ Hotstar and HBO Max.
