Deadline has reported that Nicole Kidman, an executive producer and star on the show Big Little Lies has leaked the possibility of a season three. The HBO show saw its last installment two years ago when season two aired and has been quiet ever since. However, Kidman recently expressed her love of the show and the possibility of a third season in a Q&A.
According to Deadline, Kidman regarded the show by saying “I loved Big Little Lies,” and “We will be bringing you a third one, just FYI.” This happened at the CME Group Tour Championship this past Friday. However, while this statement caused audience speculation, there is no official season three in the works, according to inside sources.
IMDB released a summary of the show, saying that it is “A darkly-comedic tale of murder and mischief in the tranquil beachfront town of Monterey, California. Amidst doting moms, successful husbands, beautiful children, and stunning homes exists a community fueled by rumors and divided into haves and have-nots, exposing fractured relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, and friends and neighbors. Told through the eyes of three mothers–Madeline, Celeste, and Jane–the series’ narrative explores society’s myths regarding perfection and its romanticization of marriage, sex, parenting, and friendship.”
Casey Bloys, chief of HBO, gave his own statement to Deadline in 2020, saying “I think the thing with Big Little Lies is you have a group of people who all really love working together but obviously they’re some of the most high-profile people working in entertainment. Reese [Witherspoon], Nicole, Zoe [Kravitz], Laura [Dern], everybody is so busy. It would be great to get the band back together at some point but right now everybody is so busy and there’s no idea, where we’re all saying ‘that makes perfect sense’. I think it’s more of one of those ‘someday’.” This statement mirrored Kidman’s recent thoughts.
Executive producer, Brian Papandrea, also expressed similar thoughts regarding the show earlier this year, says Deadline. She reportedly admitted that “I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately.”
