Everything We Know About Season 2 of Big Little Lies

Some people aren't so sure it's a good idea.

A second season of Big Little Lies is being discussed by HBO, whether its viewers want it or not.

While the network is obviously keen to continue the success of a program that was both a binge-worthy fan favorite and a critical darling, there's a vocal group that believes season one of the show, which stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, and Laura Dern (and is based on Liane Moriarty's 2014 book of the same name) told the story of these troubled California women perfectly—continuing the series would only sully what made it so great in the first place.

But at the Television Critics Association press tour this week, Casey Bloys, HBO's programming president, reportedly said that he asked Moriarty to "take a crack at" continuing the Lies story. "I’ll be very curious to see what she comes up with," he said, per TV Line.

As for executive producer and director Jean-Marc Vallée's earlier on-the-record comment that "There's no reason to make a season 2," Bloys reportedly said, "Nicole and Reese can be very persuasive."

"First we have to see the material and see if it’s worth everyone’s time. And if it is, [we’ll have a] conversation about directors."
