A second season of Big Little Lies is poised to become a reality much sooner than later.
According to TVLine, HBO is eyeing a Spring 2018 production start for the popular series, which snagged eight Emmy statues in September, including for Outstanding Limited Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series for Nicole Kidman. Two weeks ago, Big Little Lies Exec. producer David E. Kelley stated to TVLine that a second season was nearing the scheduling stage.
“We’re kicking around ideas and trying to lasso the talent [and] get the band back together,” he said. “It’s just a lot of logistical things. But I’m optimistic because everyone wants to do it. We feel we still have storytelling to do. No decision has been made yet, but we’re hopeful. Where we left it, I felt like it did open the opportunity for a lot more storytelling.”
An HBO rep declined to confirm anything about a potential second season.
Lead stars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon both expressed interest in keeping the franchise going, and director Jean-Marc Vallée now wants in. “It’d be great to reunite the team and to do it,” Vallée said backstage at the Emmys. “Are we going to be able to do it, altogether? I wish. We’ll see.”
Fingers crossed for some extreme woman power!
