“Big Little Lies” Likely to End With Season 2

While the second season of HBO’s acclaimed drama Big Little Lies is set to premiere June, it looks like fans should embrace themselves for the option that the season will be the series’ last. 

Multiple outlets report the creator of Big Little Lies have given some heavy hints that the series is more than likely end after a two-season run.

During the Television Critics Association press tour Friday, both cast and the creative team told reporters that there are plans for future seasons. Creator and executive producer David E. Kelley said, “There’s no such plan now. “It’s one and two, and we like our closure with season two, but that will probably be it.”

Nicole Kidman, star and executive producer added, “There’s no plan for it to end, specifically. This was a long shoot for us, and it was an enormous amount of work, and we’re just amazed that we can be here. Not to compare it to the first one because artistically it’s a wonderful thing to take something and go and the success of the first one was so massive, so we go, ‘OK, let’s jump off the cliff.’ But at the same time, it is its own entity and hopefully it will be taken that way. It was definitely made with an enormous amount of love.” 

The first seoson of Big Little Lies is based on a novel by Liane Moriarty. The initially limited series won eight Emmys for its first season. The series stars Zoë Kravitz, Laura Dern, Witherspoon, Kidman and Shailene Woodley. Season 2 will see the addition of Meryl Streep to the cast. Streep will star as Mary Louise, mother to Alexander Skarsgard’s Perry and Kidman’s Celeste’s mother-in-law. 

Big Little Lies is set to return in June.
