Big Little Lies’ Season 2 had its finale a few Sundays ago and fans are already pestering HBO for another reason. But based on what the people behind the show have said about Season 3, it may very well turn out to be the series finale, too. According to both, HBO president, Casey Bloys, and David E. Kelley, an executive producer, and writer for the series, Season 2 ended with real closure. And it doesn’t sound like they have any plans to continue the show.
Bloys told TVLine in an interview, “Season 2 was a chance for everyone involved to end in a way that feels satisfying,” Bloys told TVLine in an interview.
And Kelley reportedly told the same media outlet in another interview, “We like where our closure is at the end of Season 2. That will probably be it.”
Bloys also thinks that another big reason why Season 3 may not be on the table is because of the busy schedules of the actors involved.
I love this kind of person’s I would do everything with them. But the reality is, they are some of the busiest actresses working in Hollywood … I just think it’s not realistic.”
In fact, According to Bloys, it was a “small miracle” that Season 2 could happen in the first place. He said that Everybody involved is too busy that it’s very hard to imagine assigning everybody’s schedule again. Could we do it again? Who knows? It’s a great group. They love working as a team and they are really fun to work with. But everybody is too busy with the allocated work. So let’s see.
Overall, the odds are seemingly low for a third season, but one may never know. Maybe if the stars align and all the actors can come back for more, it might happen. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope for the very best.
