If you can't part ways with Tanya McQuoid and co., shows like White Lotus will keep you entertained once you've checked out of the fictional hotel chain. 

Currently, we're embarking on a Sicilian adventure in White Lotus season 2—meeting new faces (Theo James and Simona Tabasco), grappling with dramatic vacationers and attempting to figure out who dies in White Lotus season 2. (Yes, there's a lot going on.)

The Mike White creation is filled to the brim with dark humor, a tinge of mystery and commentary on elitism and classism. If you're in search of a show with similar themes, consider your next marathon booked.
