Big Little Lies season three is hoped for by fans of the HBO drama set in California. Series two of the drama is coming to an end on the network with what is expected to be an explosive final episode. But will there be another series?
Will there be another series of Big Little Lies?
There has been no confirmation of a third season of Big Little Lies on HBO yet.
Nicole Kidman recently revealed to News Corp Australia that she would love to see it return.
She told the publication: “I think we would love to do a season three because there is certainly ideas.
“But we would not do it without all of the same people involved, even the kids.”
Therefore, the prospect of series three could be dependent on whether the all-star cast including Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern would want to return.
WHERE IS BIG LITTLE LIES FILMED?
The future does not look certain for all of those involved with series creator David E. Kelley saying there are no plans yet.
He said during the Television Critics Association press tour in February: “I think that it’s one and two, and we like where our closure is at the end of season two, so that will probably be it.”
But Nicole Kidman reminded him: “That’s what you said last time!”
HBO’s president of programming Casey Bloys also told TV Line that it might not be realistic.
He said: “I love this group of people – I would do anything with them. But the reality is, they are some of the busiest actresses working in Hollywood.
“We have deals with some of them — Nicole [Kidman] is doing her next show with us. I just think it’s not realistic.”
Although he added: “If they all came to me and said, ‘We worked out all of our schedules!’ – then sure.”
HOW TO WATCH BIG LITTLE LIES ONLINE
The show was originally supposed to be a limited series with seven episodes so viewers delighted to have a second outing.
Based on Australian author Liane Moriarty’s novel of the same name, the second series extended beyond the events of the book.
Therefore, it would need to keep doing this if it were to be renewed for season three.
In the meantime, Kidman is currently involved in adapting another of Moriarty’s novels for Hulu called Nine Perfect Strangers.
