What will happen in the second season of Big Little Lies?

The second season of Big Little Lies surpasses Liane Moriarty’s novel, which the series is based on.

For season two of the drama, Moriarty wrote a novella which show writer David E. Kelley will use for the second season.

Here’s the official synopsis for season two of Big Little Lies, according to HBO:

“The Golden Globe and Emmy-winning series is a subversive, darkly comedic drama, which will continue to explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting.

“Woodley’s character Jane Chapman will be processing Perry’s sudden death in the storyline, while trying to build a new life for herself and her son, Ziggy.

“Dern, who received both an Emmy and Golden Globe for her performance, will be reprising her role as Renata Klein, a woman who will be faced with new challenges in her marriage.

“Bonnie Carlson, Zoë Kravitz’s character, will confront her past while struggling to come to terms with Perry’s death.”

Will there be a third season of Big Little Lies?

Speaking to a Television Critics Association panel earlier this week, show creator David E. Kelly and actress Nicole Kidman revealed that there’s no plans in store for a third season of Big Little Lies.

“It’s one and two, and we like our closure with season two, but that will probably be it,” Kelly added.

“There’s no plan for it to end specifically… This was a long shoot for us, and it an enormous amount of work, and we’re just amazed that we can be here,” Kidman added.

Where can I watch season two?

Big Little Lies can be watched in Australia on Foxtel.

The second season, which has been directed by Andrea Arnold, will feature seven episodes.
