Jennifer Coolidge's stay at The White Lotus might not be over.  

The hit show's creator Mike White recently revealed that a prequel revolving around Coolidge's character, the (spoiler alert) late Tanya McQuoid, is definitely not out of the question. 

"I absolutely think that's possible, we were just talking about that," White said at a press conference alongside Coolidge in Sydney, Australia, per Deadline. "It's a funny idea. And making Jennifer, you know, 20 years younger, that would be fun too. I think Jennifer's like, ‘Sure, let's do it!'"

And, after setting the first season in Hawaii, the second in Italy's Sicily, and the upcoming third in Thailand, Australia is the likely locale for the show's fourth season.

"My dream would be to hit every continent, so yeah, this is like its own continent, basically," he continued. "We kind of have to come to Australia if we keep going."

And when it comes to filming Down Under for the possible prequel, Coolidge is game. In response to the idea, she said, "Australia gets my vote."

"I am obsessed with it," the Friends alum previously told E! News of the HBO Max hit. "Obsessed with it."

"Remember when Mike said at the Golden Globes, 'I know you all passed on it?'" she recounted, referencing White's speech after The White Lotus won Best Limited TV Series. "I didn't! I didn't even get a call."


So what does the iconic Tanya McQuoid think of Aniston's wishes?

"I love Jennifer Aniston," Coolidge exclusively told E! News' Keltie Knight, adding, "and she could do no wrong in my book."
