Murder, mystery, and a series of cover-ups seems like a perfect backdrop for drama to take over. When will season 3 of this series show up to entertain us?
Sometimes projects become a lot bigger than initially planned. That seems to be the case for Big Little Lies. Initially developed to be a mini-series, HBO renewed the first seven-episode season for a second one, although they did end up having to bring on a new director. The series first came to our attention when Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman decided to option the book by Liane Moriarty. When it came out, it was everything we could have dreamed of a series of this caliber and more. The cast was all big-name celebs, the acting was terrific, the backdrops were superb, and there was very little we could ask for, aside from a season 2. And HBO delivered on that, even though they ran into some hiccups on the way.
Reese Witherspoon will reprise the starring role of Madeline Mackenzie, and we're likely to see most (if not all) of the previous season's actors return to their places. Among the star-studded cast we expect to come back to the show are Nicole Kidman (Celeste Wright), Alexander Skarsgård (Perry Wright), Laura Dern (Renata Klein), Zoë Kravitz (Bonnie Carlson), Shailene Woodley (Jane Chapman) and Adam Scott (Ed Mackenzie). We might get a second helping of Meryl Streep's Mary Louise if she isn't engaged with other projects, but she might well be. Witherspoon also dropped a hint that she'd enjoy having Jennifer Aniston join up with the cast, but for now, it's just speculation. Let's see if she can turn this dream into a reality.
While the series is based on Liane Moriarty's novel, the second season left the conclusion of the book behind and expanded the lore, characters, and setting far beyond what we expected. The result is a series that doesn't offer up many clues as to what we can expect. However, we can speculate based on what's happened so far. At the end of the second season, the Monterey Five waltzed into the police station, where we assume Bonnie will admit to pushing Perry down the stairs. The rest of the crew aren't just there for moral support, however. They're heading in there to let the police know that Perry was an abusive partner and that Bonnie is justified in what she did. From there, it's anyone's guess as to what's going to happen. Will Bonnie do hard time, or will the police accept the gang's statements? Or are we reading this all wrong, and they're about to frame someone else?
Rumors circulated at the close of season 2 that the new director HBO had brought on was having difficulties. It seems as though Andrea Arnold was being overruled on creative decisions by the former director turned executive director Jean-Marc Vallée. Arnold replaced Vallée due to the latter having too much other work commitments to dedicate time to the show. HBO vehemently denies any change in creative direction had occurred and insists that the directors worked collaboratively on the project. Whether this will affect what we get for season three or not is anyone's guess. As it stands, season 3 hasn't yet been renewed, but we have no reason to think it won't.
Your guess is as good as anyone's for this one. The star-studded cast means that filming will have to take place in between commitments for other work the actors may have. Season one didn't air until 2017, and season two dropped in June of 2019. We may be looking at a 2021 air date for season 3.Disclaimer : The views expressed in this article belong to the writer and are not necessarily shared by trinikid.com
