What to Watch the Week of October 30: The White Lotus Returns for a Sexy Italian Holiday

The White Lotus is back for season two tonight, swapping Maui, Hawaii for Taormina, Sicily. Icon Jennifer Coolidge makes the transatlantic trip to reprise her role as Tanya McQuoid, and we’re better off for it. The theme song is slightly different, but creator/writer/director Mike White’s signature style for the satirical series is exactly the same (though you are definitely missed, Murray Bartlett). New episodes air every Sunday for the next seven weeks, so get ready for this (and the upcoming fifth season of The Crown) to be all anyone talks about at your Thanksgiving dinner table this year. 

In other new offerings this week, Manifest season four finally lands at Netflix after the fans rallied to bring it back from cancellation at NBC. Over at Apple TV+, Selena Gomez premieres her emotionally raw documentary, My Mind and Me. There’s also a timely new episode of Grey’s Anatomy, with returning fan favorites Kate Walsh and Jesse Williams. 

For something a little lighter, Lifetime and Hallmark are in full holiday mode, with Alison Sweeney, Jodie Sweetin, and Marlo Thomas all appearing in new movies. I can’t wait to drink hot chocolate and camp out on the couch watching all these holiday offerings, even if it is 70 degrees here in Los Angeles. 

Finally, I urge you to tune in to our Glamour 2022 Women of the Year Awards this Tuesday night, which will be live-streamed on Glamour.com. It’s going to be an incredible evening honoring some outstanding women (and featuring some very cool presenters), so you won’t want to miss it. Details below.

And with that, I’ll see you back here next Sunday as we gear up for season five of The Crown. (Spoiler alert: I’m five episodes in and it’s really good.)

Sunday, October 30The White Lotus (HBO/HBOMax): For the next seven weeks, our favorite Sunday night show is back (sorry, House of the Dragon), along with Jennifer Coolidge as the most entertaining hotel guest to ever step foot into a White Lotus resort. In the second installment, we pick up at an exclusive Sicilian resort and follow the exploits of various guests and employees over the span of a week.
