Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon Reveal Season 3 of 'Big Little Lies' Is Officially in the Works

Based on the novel by Liane Moriarty, Big Little Lies was a massive hit for HBO when it first came out. Although it was initially labeled as a miniseries, the series was renewed for a second season, which was based on a novella written by Moriarty. The black comedy-drama featured a star-filled cast led by Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, and Zoë Kravitz as the five women who get caught up in a murder investigation in California. They were joined by Meryl Streep in the second season, with supporting roles played by Alexander Skarsgård, Adam Scott, James Tupper, Jeffrey Nordling, Kathryn Newton, and Iain Armitage.

And while the series supposedly ended with Season 2, Kidman hinted, in November 2023, that a third season would be made and this has officially been confirmed by Kidman and Witherspoon in a talk the two actresses had with Vanity Fair.

The second season of the series ended on July 21, 2019, and it’s been five years since then. Many fans thought that the series was over, not because it was bad, but because there was no new material. The first season was based on the book and the second season somehow managed to find that novella to adapt, but there was nothing more for a third season, so many thought it was over.

Nicole Kidman surprised fans back in November 2023 when she said that a third season was planned, but there had been no updates since then until yesterday when it was officially confirmed that a new season is in the works and that a new book by Moriarty would also be published. This was revealed by Kidman and Witherspoon during a talk with Vanity Fair:

“I got excited. We need to shut up. There’s a whole thing about how you should never talk about something until you’ve done it because if you talk about doing it then it’s the dopamine hit of doing it and you feel like you’ve done it. It’s a scientific study. (…) We’re moving fast and furious. Liane [Moriarty] is delivering the book. We’re in good shape.”

This was a truly interesting interview in which the two actresses reunited after a while, and discussed many things, among which was the third season of Big Little Lies, so Kidman’s confirmation is definitely a scoop, even if we don’t really know much about the planned season or its planned release date. A book and a new season are coming our way, so be sure to keep following us, as you will find out all the updates here on Fiction Horizon, as you always do.
