Plus, at least one of the show's stars is on board for another season. Below, I'll run down all of the quotes from the major players involved and try to get to the bottom of this. "Big Little Lies" drew amusing comparisons to "Pretty Little Liars", which will end after seven seasons later this year. Director Jean-Marc Vallé has said previously that the series is "a one-time deal", and that it's peaked, so everyone should just leave it at the high point it reached. "Whether or not she has been abused, she is going to push this motherfucker". In a show of solidarity, all of the women lie to the police about the cause of Perry's death to protect each other...but a dogged female detective doesn't believe their stories. The final episode closed out with all of the women happily frolicking on the beach with their children. "There is no way; there's no reason to make a Season 2".
Let's go through the evidence in order, shall we?
"People are asking us a lot if there is room for a Season 2 of this", she toldVanity Fair. "It's implied in her performances and some little lines", she explained. That would be good. Her backstory was hinted at, but never fully realised on the little screen, for reasons Moriarty says she has no idea why.
"Let's move on and do something else", he said.
Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, who optioned "Big Little Lies" and served as executive producers on the project, garnered particularly rave reviews. "The end is for the audience to talk about", he said. But do you really want more? Thinking that it could come back before then would be a foolhardy assumption. "So if is right, and if [screenwriter] David E. Kelley is happy to get the screenplay right, then I think that'll do it". "That would be a attractive prospect", she said.
"I have started to think about ways this could continue". "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".
What Could Season 2 Be About?
Many people are opposed to the idea because season 1 ended so perfectly. What will she do now that her husband (and abuser) is gone?
But Moriarty has different plans in mind. And now that she's been asked by the show's producers, she's coming up with ideas for a second season.
Even better news is the sequel will also follow Nicole Kidman's character Celeste, and her grief.
When asked what happens next for Celeste, Moriarty said that was a really interesting question. For example, Bonnie, played by Zoe Kravitz, is a character she feels needs more attention. "She's grieving. She's still grieving for the end of a awful relationship and I think that would really be an interesting thing to explore", she said.
