The lie is about to get a complete lot greater.
Nicole Kidman teased a possible third season of the HBO show “Big Little Lies” during a Q&A session on the CME Group Tour Championship in Naples, Florida.
“It form of got here along at a time in my life once I had my children and I used to be pondering I used to be going to retire. After which this example got here along, where Reese Witherspoon and I were capable of produce that show and create that show,” Kidman, 56, gushed on Friday. “After which all of you watched it and made it an enormous success.”
“I loved ‘Big Little Lies,’” she added. “We might be bringing you a 3rd one, just FYI.”
The Season 2 finale of the show aired in July 2019.
Kidman, who played Celeste, starred alongside Witherspoon (Madeline), Zoe Kravitz (Bonnie), Laura Dern (Renata) and Shailene Woodley (Jane).
While there was no official comment on whether or not the show might be returning to HBO, the “Moulin Rouge” actress has repeatedly expressed her desire to film one other season.
“Everyone’s working. Hopefully we are able to collide again at one point,” Kidman said in January 2020.
Her sentiment was echoed by HBO CEO Casey Bloys.
“I feel the thing with ‘Big Little Lies’ is you might have a gaggle of people that all really love working together but obviously they’re a few of the most high-profile people working in entertainment,” Bloys said to Deadline in November.
“Reese, Nicole, Zoe, Laura, everybody is so busy. It will be great to get the band back together in some unspecified time in the future but right away everybody is so busy and there’s no idea, where we’re all saying ‘that makes perfect sense,’” he explained. “I feel it’s more of considered one of those ‘someday.’”
Executive producer Bruna Papandrea also teased that the production team had been revisiting the series.
“I’ve been enthusiastic about it loads currently,” Papandrea told the outlet. “I do imagine a variety of people feel the way in which I do, which is to search out a way in some unspecified time in the future to proceed.”
Kravitz, 34, revealed that the solid and crew initially wanted more episodes, however the unexpected death of director and executive producer Jean-Marc Vallée caused the thought to stall.
“I don’t think it’s,” the “Implausible Beasts” actress told GQ in November 2022. “We talked about doing a Season 3 loads. Unfortunately, Jean-Marc Vallée, our incredible director, passed away this last yr.”
“It’s heartbreaking,” she added. “I can’t imagine occurring without him. He really was the visionary for that show. Unfortunately, it’s done.”
Vallée, who was known for his work on “Dallas Buyers Club” and Hulu’s “Sharp Objects,” died from a heart attack in December 2021. He was 58.
Kravitz and Kidman’s co-stars would also sign on for an additional season.
Dern, 56, told Entertainment Tonight that she was “holding out hope” for a 3rd season.
“I mean, we’d all love nothing more,” she said in October 2022. “We’re like family, just very lucky. I say, let’s hold out hope. Let’s keep asking. It would just come true.”
Witherspoon would return to Monterey, California, too.
“We’re at all times talking and texting. But Jean-Marc Vallée’s passing was really hard on us,” the “Legally Blonde” star, 47, told the Hollywood Reporter in September 2022.
“He was our collaborator. He was our friend. He was our brother. A lot of that series was born of his imagination and his creativity, so it is difficult to assume a future without him,” she noted on the time. “But there may be actually a deep desire for all of us to attach and create those characters again.”
