Nicole Kidman surprised everyone during a town hall meeting with her flagship series Big Little Lies.
A year ago, the sudden death of Jean-Marc Vallée destroyed any hope of starting a third season of Big Little Lies. In fact, the Canadian director was closely involved in the production of the HBO series as director of the first season and executive producer of the second season.
But Nicole Kidman – actress and producer of Big Little Lies – made an announcement last Friday that surprised everyone. During a question and answer session (organized for a golf tournament in Naples, Florida!), Nicole Kidman casually announced that a third season would be happening.
“I loved Big Little Lies” she said in a video posted on the Instagram account to a person present during the question and answer session when asked about her favorite roles, adding: “Just for your information, we offer you a third one.“
HBO reportedly declined to comment on the announcement of this quasi-renewal.
This release fueled speculation that a new episode could finally be released. AccordinglyThere are no real discussions taking place at the moment, but there seems to be a desire to put together a new season of Big Little Lies.
To be convinced, one need only compare Kidman’s comments last Friday with what she said on the subject nearly four years ago, in January 2020.”Everyone works. I hope we can see each other again sometime“, she explained at the time. But that was before the death of Jean-Marc Vallée.
At the same time, Casey Bloys, the head of HBO, reiterated his opinion. “I think the thing about Big Little Lies is that it has a group of people who really enjoy working together, but are obviously some of the hottest people in the entertainment world.
Reese [Witherspoon]Nicole, Zoe [Kravitz]Laura [Dern], everyone is very busy. It would be great to get the band back together again at some point, but everyone is so busy at the moment and we have no idea where we’re all thinking, “That makes perfect sense.” I think it’s more about “one of these days”” he told Deadline.
Big Little Lies executive producer Bruna Papandrea hinted earlier this year that the team could return to the series, whose second season ended with a cliffhanger as all the heroines prepared to go to the police station.
“I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately“Bruna Papandrea told Deadline.”I think a lot of people feel the same way I do, which is that at some point they want to find a way to move on.“
Big Little Lies was created and produced by David E. Kelley. The first season is based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Liane Moriarty.
