‘We would love it!’: Nicole Kidman hints at third season for Big Little Lies as she says show coming to an end would be so ‘upsetting’ for close cast
The future of HBO’s Big Little Lies is relatively unknown, with show bosses previously casting doubt on whether it will continue past season two.
But, Nicole Kidman isn’t giving up on the idea of season three just yet, and hinted that Big Little Lies will continue if she and her co-stars have anything to do with it.
Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday, the Hollywood actress, 52, insisted it would be too ‘upsetting’ to walk away from the series, if it’s not renewed.

Radio host Jackie quizzed Nicole on the future of Big Little Lies and she claimed that the cast, including the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Zoe Kravitz, are keen to do it.
‘We would love to do [season three],’ Nicole said.
She explained that herself and her co-stars have formed a firm friendship and the idea of not being able to work alongside each other is a hard pill to swallow.

Nicole and Reese are extremely close and they joined Shailene Woodley and Laura Dern at Zoe’s wedding back in June, where she wed actor Karl Glusman.
‘The thing is when when you have that camaraderie… we’re all just very deeply intertwined,’ Nicole explained.
‘The idea of having to walk away from it is really upsetting for us,’ she said.

Academy Award winner Nicole added that the future of a third series is dependent on them finding a ‘great storyline’ for it, but she did hint that there are already some ‘strong ideas’ being pitched.
It’s not the first time Nicole has teased Big Little Lies 3 is in the works.
Season two is gearing up for its finale and suggesting that it leaves space for a third series to follow, Nicole told News Corp Australia: ‘You gotta see this finale… there’s so much more to come.’
Unsure: HBO’s network president Casey Bloys cast doubt over season three, due to the calibre of the show’s in-demand A-list cast and said it would be ‘unrealistic’ to get the show’s stars to commit again. Pictured L-R: Shailene, Nicole and Reese
However, HBO’s network president Casey Bloys cast doubt over season three, due to the calibre of the show’s in-demand A-list cast.
He claimed it would be ‘unrealistic’ to pull the cast together, as they are some of the ‘busiest working women’ in Hollywood and scheduling could be problematic.
Big Little Lies is based on the novel of the same name by Liane Moriarty, and follows the lives and rivalries of a group of school mums living in Monterey, California.
