Imperioli is the first cast member HBO has confirmed as a part of Season 2. However, it was reported in October that Jennifer Coolidge had joined that cast after starring in Season 1. HBO declined to comment at the time.

The series premiered in July 2021. The first season, set at the fictional White Lotus resort in Hawaii, follows a group of visitors with seemingly perfect lives over six episodes. Along with Coolidge, stars include Connie Britton, Natasha Rothwell, Steve Zahn, Murray Barlett, Alexandra Daddario, Fred Hechinger, Jake Lacy, Sydney Sweeney and Brittany O’Grady.

“The White Lotus” was an immediate hit for HBO and continued to succeed throughout the season, drawing 1.9 million viewers with its final episode. It was a critical success as well, garnering wide acclaim, with Variety‘s review praising Coolidge in particular for “[creating] some of the show’s most memorable moments by the sheer force of her charisma.”

Imperioli’s most recent credits include reprising his “Sopranos” role in Alan Taylor’s film “The Many Saints of Newark,” as well as playing the recurring role of Robert Lewis in “Blue Bloods” and Angelo Dundee in Regina King’s film “One Night in Miami.” Up next, he will appear in Hulu’s “This Fool.”

Imperioli is repped by Gersh and Anonymous Content.

Deadline was the first to report Imperioli’s casting.
