- Who has the final say on the renewal?
In an interview in November of 2019, Nicole Kidman said that though fans are really missing ‘Big Little Lies’, it is really up to the writers if they want it a renewed season or not.
Fans feel that a season 3 of the show is completely justified, especially considering that the show had earned three Golden Globes nominations — one for Meryl Streep, one for Nicole Kidman, and one for best television drama.
What did Nicole Kidman have to say about season 3 of BLL?
Nicole Kidman weighed in on the potential for a third season of ‘Big Little Lies’ in the Michael Kors show. She said that she and Reese Witherspoon are ‘exploring’ the prospects. Meanwhile, season 2 finale of ‘Big Little Lies’ met with mixed reviews. Casey Bloys told “ET” ‘never say never’ as he treated season 2 sceptically, and would do the same for season 3.
In an interview to an entertainment website “Deadline”, Nicole Kidman said that if a third season happens, it will be born out of a strong story.
‘Big Little Lies’ Season 2 ended on a cliffhanger
To most fans, the finale of ‘Big Little Lies’ Season 2 felt like a significant cliffhanger and offered a perfect setup for season 3. And though there is always the possibility of renewal, there has been no confirmation by either the cast of the crew of the show.
‘Big Little Lies’ was, from the start, conceived as a mini-series; a one-season drama. It is based on the eponymous novel by Liane Moriarty that has no sequel. Moriarty agreed to work on the material for the second season after the season garnered critical-acclaim and great feedback from viewers.
Liane Moriarty and David E Kelly
While the muse, in case of the book, is really Liane Moriarty, the writer of the book, the show is a joint effort by David E Kelly and Liane, and their combination is extraordinary. David constructed this show with Liane and built it from the ground up. It will be interesting to see which way they would go next. For now, it is really up to Liane Moriarty what she can muster and if she has an interest in it.
Fans campaign for season 3
Supporters campaigned hard on various social media platforms for season 2, and we see the same thing happening for season 3. The cast of the show is another reason that contributes to the eagerness of the fans. The list of cast includes Hollywood’s A-listers – Meryl Streep (‘The Devil Wears Prada’), Nicole Kidman (‘Bombshell’), and Reese Witherspoon (‘Wild’).
Laura open on playing Renata again
When posed with the question of a possibility on ‘Big Little Lies’ Season 3 at the Golden Globes, Laura Dern said that when Reese and Nicole get back here, you ask them. However, she added that in any case, she could not say no to Renata.
There is no doubt that fans will give anything for season 3 of ‘Big Little Lies’. We have to wait to see if their demand compels the makers to make a move.
