Natasha Rothwell’s Belinda emerged as one of the fan-favorite characters during the first season of The White Lotus, and she’s gearing up for a comeback! The Emmy-nominated star will return as Belinda in the Thailand-set third season of the acclaimed HBO series.

Rothwell starred in the first season of The White Lotus alongside Murray Bartlett, Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Alexandra Daddario, Jake Lacy, Brittany O’Grady, Sydney Sweeney, and Steve Zahn. She played the resort’s kind and empathetic spa manager Belinda and quickly became one of the show’s most beloved—and most tragic—characters.

Belinda struck a complicated friendship with Coolidge’s Tanya, who promised she would invest in her wellness business. She pulled back at the last minute, leaving Belinda heartbroken just when she thought she was one step away from realizing her lifelong dream.

Since Mike White previously revealed that the third season of The White Lotus will offer “a satirical and funny look at death and Eastern religion and spirituality,” Belinda perfectly fits into the story because this premise allows her to tap into her wellness background.

Rothwell previously told The Daily Beast she’d jump at the opportunity to play Belinda again because she loved working with Mike White and the rest of the show’s cast and crew. She’s finally coming back, so let’s hope Belinda will get her happy ending the second time around!
