Congratulations, Big Little Lies fans: season two is coming!!!
On Friday morning, HBO announced that the show will be returning for season two soon, with Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and more on board for a seven-episode second season directed entirely by Transparent alum Andrea Arnold!
In a statement aligning with the second season news on Friday, Witherspoon said this about returning for more of the show in Monterey (below):
“I’m thrilled to be bringing back this talented team of artists. 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.”
Most of the rest of the cast is already on board with contract negotiations underway, so you shouldn’t expect too many holes from season one — although there are apparently four new characters that production is currently auditioning for new roles in the second season.
What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Excited about another season of Big Little Lies??
