When Big Little Lies premiered earlier this year, it was billed as a limited series, and everyone associated with the show seemed to want it to remain that way.
Somewhere along the way, critical acclaim, solid viewing figures and a string of Emmy Awards have changed all of that. It quickly became apparent that more episodes were likely.
Liane Moriarty, the author of the book confirmed earlier this year that she was working on ideas for a new season.
“I have started to think about ways this could continue,” she told The Sydney Morning Herald.
“The producers have asked me to see if I can come up with some ideas. I wouldn’t write a new book but perhaps a new story and then we’ll see what happens… I’m absolutely open to it because, once I started thinking, it was too much fun to see what I could do and to see these characters again."
"And there’s definitely places you can go,” she concluded.
According to TVLine, HBO is gearing up for production on Big Little Lies Season 2 to kick off in Spring 2018 which effectively means the show is coming back.
"We’re kicking around ideas and trying to lasso the talent [and] get the band back together,” Executive Producer, David E. Kelley recently shared with TVLine.
“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.”
The series boasted a cast that included the likes of Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgård, Adam Scott, Zoë Kravitz, James Tupper, Jeffrey Nordling and Laura Dern.
Big Little Lies Season 1 concluded with the ladies all bonded together after a season of being at odds.
The detective looking into the murder of Perry Wright seemed to think there was something off about the women and the final shot found her looking at them walking along a beach through a set of binoculars.
