Aubrey Plaza has been tapped as a series regular for season 2 of The White Lotus.
The 37-year-old Parks and Recreation star is set to portray Harper Spiller — a woman on vacation with her husband and his friends — in the second installment of the HBO show.
Plaza is the second cast member to be announced for the upcoming season, as it was previously revealed that The Sopranos’ Michael Imperioli, 55, would be attached.

The first season of Mike White’s satirical dramedy followed a motley group of people vacationing at an exclusive Hawaiian resort called The White Lotus.
Stars of the show included Jennifer Coolidge (who is rumored to be returning for season two), Connie Britton, Steve Zahn, Sydney Sweeney, Alexandra Daddario and Murray Bartlett.
The second season will follow a different group of vacationers — including Plaza and Imperioli — at a different White Lotus property.
Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that ‘Italy is being eyed as the location for season two,’ however HBO has remained mum on the matter.

Imperioli is set to play Dominic Di Grasso, a man traveling with his elderly father and recent college-graduate son.
Coolidge is also rumored to be reprising her role as Tanya McQuoid — an unstable and wealthy woman who had traveled to Hawaii with her mother’s ashes.
During preliminary discussions about season two, White had shared that they would likely take an anthology style approach if it were to be renewed for seasons to come.
‘I don’t think you can credibly have [all the Season 1 guests] on the same vacation again. But maybe it could be a Marvel universe type thing, where some of them would come back,’ he told TvLine.
