Sunday’s episode of “The White Lotus” was jaw-dropping and eye-opening.

Episode 5 of the second season of the anthology series was watched by 2.3 million people on its first night — more than any other episode of the series — on Warner Bros. Discovery. This statistic is calculated based on a combination of linear viewership on the HBO cable channel as measured by Nielsen and WBD’s HBO Max streams.

This marks a 23% jump from the previous series, the Season 1 finale, which brought in 1.9 million viewers when it debuted last August. Additionally, the episode saw a 28 percent increase compared to episode 4.

Season 2 viewership increased with every episode, with 1.5 million viewers tuning in for Episode 1. WBD says the season premiere has now reached 9.5 million viewers, surpassing the season 1 episode average of 9.3 viewers.

No wonder episode 5 immediately set social media on fire with a shocking sex scene in the final minutes. (Read on for spoilers and series creator Mike White’s thoughts on the show Difference(Exclusive interview here)

Season 1 took place in Maui’s White Lotus Resort and Season 2 in Sicily. HBO renewed the series for Season 3 earlier this month, though casting and location details are yet to come.
