You may not quite be able to take a Hawaiian vacation just yet, but HBO is giving you the next best thing. The new limited series The White Lotus premieres in July.

The social satire follows the vacations of various hotel guests as they relax and rejuvenate in paradise. But with each passing day, a darker complexity emerges… in the picture-perfect travelers, in the hotel’s cheerful employees, and in the idyllic locale itself.

The White Lotus core cast includes Murray Bartlett, Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Alexandra Daddario, Fred Hechinger, Jake Lacy, Brittany O’Grady, Natasha Rothwell, Sydney Sweeney, and Steve Zahn. Plus, you’ll see recurring guest stars  Molly Shannon, Jon Gries, Jolene Purdy, Kekoa Kekumano, and Lukas Gage. The show comes from Mike White (Enlightened).

Check out the full description of the show from HBO below:

Among the employees at The White Lotus are the fastidious resort manager Armond (Murray Bartlett), who, after a sudden trauma, begins a dramatic downward spiral – and the down-to-earth spa manager, Belinda (Natasha Rothwell) who gets taken on an emotional roller coaster ride by a needy guest. The vacationers include:

  • The Mossbacher family – Nicole (Connie Britton), a successful type-A exec, who can’t help but treat her family like disobedient employees; her husband, Mark (Steve Zahn), dealing with both an embarrassing health crisis and a terminal inferiority complex; their teenaged son, Quinn (Fred Hechinger), a socially awkward gamer, experiencing the wonder of nature for the very first time; their daughter, Olivia (Sydney Sweeney), and her friend, Paula (Brittany O’Grady), sharp-tongued college sophomores who cast a sardonic eye on the lifestyles and belief systems of everyone around them.
  • The handsome, entitled Shane Patton (Jake Lacy) is here with his beautiful bride, Rachel (Alexandra Daddario). Shane and Rachel are in the throes of young love, but as they get to know each other better in this new, intimate environment, clouds of doubt appear – and by the time Shane’s intrusive mother, Kitty (Molly Shannon) surprises them with an unwelcome visit, their fairytale honeymoon has begun to unravel.
  • Tanya McQuoid (Jennifer Coolidge), a wealthy, unstable woman, recovering from the death of her mother, traveling alone to the hotel, looking for love and in desperate need of a massage.

The six-episode limited series debuts on July 11 at 9pm ET/PT on HBO. The White Lotus will also be available to stream on HBO Max.
