In an interview with E!, Aniston admitted she was ‘obsessed’ with the HBO show.
E! correspondent Keltie Knight suggested the 54-year-old could appear as Tanya’s sister in the third season while seeking vengeance for her death.
And the actor gave her mark of approval, replying: "Did you hear it, Mike White? I want Jennifer Coolidge.”
She added: "I love her."
Aniston also recalled that during White’s 2023 Golden Globes speech, he said that he had approached many A-listers to star in the series but claimed they had passed on it.
"Remember when Mike said at the Golden Globes, 'I know you all passed on it!'" she said.
"I didn't! I didn't even get a call."
According to a report by Variety, the next season will be heading to Thailand, which boasts hotspots like Ko Samui, Ko Pha Ngan and Ko Tao.
The first two seasons were filmed at the Four Seasons Hotel in the US and Italy.
And considering there are several Four Seasons spread across Thailand, it makes sense the next season will take place in the southeast Asia region.
But as far as the plot goes, White hinted during a segment for season two's finale: "The first season highlighted money, and then the second season is sex.
“I think the third season would be maybe a satirical and funny look at death and Eastern religion and spirituality.”
And just like seasons one and two, you can expect to see a whole new cast.
Casey Bloys, HBO CEO, told Deadline that he likes White’s anthology-style format, where audiences get to meet a whole new array of characters.
“It’s great that he gets to cast new actors each time. What’s been great about seasons 1 and 2 is, a little like Succession, it allows you to rediscover actors or see them in a new light,” he said.
No word yet on when the new season will debut, but the release date will likely fall between late 2023 and early to mid-2024.
“Production on season 3 has yet to begin, as sources say White has been spending time in Thailand scoping out sites,” Variety wrote.
