Could there be more Big Little Lies on the horizon? According to star Nicole Kidman, it depends on a number of moving parts including whether or not Liane Moriarty, who wrote the book the show is based on, and creator David E. Kelley are involved.
“Yeah, well, Liane [Moriarty], because it’s her story. She concocted it. And then David [E. Kelley], because he then took it to the series level,” she responded when asked if another season was possible. “So between Liane and David, I would hope that they could come up with something… I mean, it took us six months to shoot this. So we all went, “Uh… OK!” 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? That would be a beautiful prospect.”
Touted as a mini-series, the show centers on a group of women whose lives are changed when someone is murdered in their quiet little town. It’s interesting in that it’s centered on these interconnected female friendships and features such dynamic women. “I loved all the characters, I thought they were really dynamic women and very truthful in their struggles and the way that they communicated with each other,” star Reese Witherspoon said of the series. “I thought it was a unique opportunity to have five really talented, diverse women on screen together, which is something that doesn’t happen that often. ”
As excited as they (and us, the audience) might be about the show and a potential second season, it’s easier said than done. “All five of us, there’s a very, very strong connection through what it took to get the series made, you know? 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? But all of us, I think, feel so connected to it,” Kidman added.
So, maybe don’t hold your breath for new episodes? At least things ended on a somewhat satisfactory note.
