Now that HBO’s star-studded drama series Big Little Lies has come to an end, fans of the series will be wondering if there will be a second season.
Unfortunately, the show’s director Jean-Marc Vallee has shunned the idea of a second season to the series, based on Liane Moriarty’s 2014 novel of the same name.
“Now it’s up to the audience and their imagination to figure out,” he said of the finale.
“To do a season two, I’m not for it. Let’s move on and do something else! If there’s an opportunity to reunite with Reese, Nicole and these characters of course, I’ll be a part of it, but Big Little Lies One is a one-time deal. Big Little Lies Two? Nah. The end is for the audience to talk about. Imagine what you want to imagine and that’s it. We won’t give you a season two because it’s so good like this. Why spoil it?” he told the Hollywood Reporter.
One of the leading ladies, Nicole Kidman has expressed that she’d be open to returning to the series.
“I think if there was something compelling and extraordinary that they could come up with, then would we want to go and embody these women again?” She told TV Line.
During a Facebook Live chat with fans, Reese Witherspoon also explained that she’d be interested in returning to the series.
“One of the main questions everyone keeps asking us is there going to be a season two, she said.
But there’s certainly nothing [about Season 2] now, nothing that’s solid or anything. I mean, it was a lot to get it to this point! [Laughs] There are so many moving parts to this series that would be impossible not to have again. And who knows if it’s meant to be finite?”
“We’ve been talking with the writer, and you guys should Facebook Liane Moriarty and tell her how much you want to see Big Little Lies 2. That would be good. She’s thinking about ideas, and so we would love to hear ideas.”
