Big Little Lies director: "There’s no reason to make a Season 2"
Jean-Marc Vallée, director and producer of HBO's Big Little Lies, has played down the possibility of a second season.
The show, which stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgård, Laura Dern, Adam Scott and Zoë Kravitz, has been a big success for HBO and has just completed its run on US television, leading to speculation about a second season. There are three episodes left to show on Sky Atlantic, where it is on in the UK.
But Vallée has said he has no plans for that, saying to Vulture when asked about a second season: "No, no, this is the perfect ending. There is no way; there’s no reason to make a Season two. That was meant to be a one-time deal” Jean-Marc continues, “and it’s finishing in a way where it’s for the audience to imagine what can happen."
Big Little Lies set is set the small town of Pirriwee, we follow the lives of three mothers whose children are all in first grade at the local elementary school whose lives become bound together when a murder happens in the town.
The show will be available to pre-order from hmv.com in the coming weeks.
