Big Little Lies officially renewed for season 2

Hello,
Good news, we’ll finally have a season 2 of Big Little Lies!

Whether you’re on board for the return to Monterey or not, it’s happening with Big Little Lies season two. Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are back to star and executive produce the HBO series, but right now they’re the only cast signed on.

“I’m thrilled to be bringing back this talented team of artists,” Witherspoon said in a statement. “It gives us the opportunity to delve deeper into the lives of these intriguing and intricate Monterey families and bring more of their stories back to the audience who embraced and championed them. I’m beyond excited to be working with talented and acclaimed director Andrea Arnold who will be at the helm. Andrea’s unique storytelling style will be a welcome addition to the filmmaking team.”

“This is inspired by the overwhelming response by audiences around the world, conceived once again by Liane Moriarty, realized by David Kelley and now in the hands of visionary filmmaker Andrea Arnold,” Kidman said in a statement. “What a journey this has been. I’m so grateful to have this opportunity to keep exploring these female characters and make this series with my friends.”

THE NEW DIRECTOR
Andrea Arnold will direct all seven episodes. Oh yeah, the season will be seven episodes. Arnold won an Oscar for Best Short Film, Live Action in 2005 for Wasp. She’s helmed episodes of I Love Dick and Transparent, in addition to Wuthering Heights.

SAME WRITER
David E. Kelley wrote all the scripts for the new season. Kelley, who was nominated for an Emmy for writing Big Little Lies season one and won one as executive producer on the then-limited series, wrote the new season from a novella done by Big Little Lies book scribe Liane Moriarty.

“We went to Liane [Moriarty, author of the original novel] and asked, ‘Do you see any more life in these characters? You wrote the book — do you see them having life beyond what you wrote?’ She came up with a novella, which was key. David took it and thought, ‘Is there something I can do with it?’ Reese and Nicole were involved, and they felt that there was more life in the characters. Everybody approached it from a place of love and care [for] these characters and this property, and again, with a little dose of skepticism along the way,” HBO‘s president of programming, Carter Ploys, told Vulture.

SAME CAST
Most of the cast is expected to return. When HBO announced the new season, the cable channel noted the most of the of season one, which included Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, Adam Scott, Zoë Kravitz, was still in negotiations to return.

NEW CHARACTERS
There are new characters coming to create drama for the returning characters. According to Vulture, HBO is seeking actors to take on new roles including Michael Perkins, a new teacher at Otter Bay Elementary School who pisses off Renata (Dern) when his global warming lessons give Amabella a panic attack. Then there’s a new employee at the school who befriends Jane (Woodley), with the two eventually sharing secrets. Also expect to meet Bonnie’s (Kravitz) parents.

A LONG WAIT
Season two won’t premiere until 2019. “It would be impossible to get on in 2018,” Ploys told Vulture.

THE NEW STORY
As for the plot, aside from the bits and pieces we’ve heard about Bonnie and new characters, this is how HBO describes the new season: “The subversive, darkly comedic drama Big Little Lies will explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode…the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.”

Big Little Lies dominates Golden Globes Nominations

Hello,

HBO’s wildly addicting “Big Little Lies” dominated the Golden Globe nominations on Monday morning, earning the most of any TV show, with six nods. It’s the likely front-runner for best TV movie/limited series, and five of its stars (Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Alexander Skarsgard) earned acting nominations.

Incidentally, as “Big Little Lies” could sweep all of the TV movie/limited series categories, HBO announced on Friday that it is officially confirmed for a second season. In other words, not so “limited” anymore, and now joins the pantheon of shows that should definitely be considered a drama — but it’s practically a cliche to even debate that anymore.

Either way, the huge award show success of the star-studded “Big Little Lies” (it won big at the Emmys, too) certainly helps explain why HBO was so eager to continue a show that was originally conceived as one season. But as the seven episodes started airing in February, word of mouth spread, and millions of viewers tuned in each week to see the drama between the wealthy families in the ritzy seaside community of Monterey, Calif. Based on Liane Moriarty’s best-selling 2014 novel, the series explores the complicated backstories of four different women and their children, and also turns into a mystery about which character dies in the end.

Big Little Lies – Season 2

Hello,

Here’s an article dealing with the second season of Big Little Lies, so it’s not really clear if it has been confirmed but these are informations.

It’s amazing how a crate full of Emmys can hasten the development process. Case in point: A second season of Big Little Lies is poised to become a reality (much) sooner than later.
Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that HBO is eyeing a Spring 2018 production start for the female-driven phenom, which snagged eight Emmy statues in September, including for Outstanding Limited Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series for Nicole Kidman. As recently as two weeks ago, Big Little Lies EP/writer David E. Kelley strongly intimated 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 shared. “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.
Even before Big Little Lies triumphed at the Emmys, HBO asked Liane Moriarty — whose novel the miniseries was based on — to “take a crack at” coming with with a story for a potential second season. Kidman and fellow leading lady/EP Reese Witherspoon both expressed interest in keeping the franchise going, and director Jean-Marc Vallée — who initially balked at doing a sequel — 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.” [UPDATE: Vallée will not be directing the show’s second season.]
