Now that we’ve binge-watched the entire second season of Big Little Lies (more than once…), there’s only one question on our mind: Will the popular HBO series return for a third installment?
While the cast previously teased that it’s unlikely, Nicole Kidman (Celeste Wright) recently sat down for an interview with Elle magazine and talked about the possibility of BLL season three. Although the timing isn’t right at the moment, the 52-year-old actress hinted that there’s room for discussion in the future.
“Everyone says, ‘Are you going to do a season three?’” she said. “We’re like, ‘Just give us a sec.’”
Kidman went on to say that she enjoys working with the powerhouse cast, which includes Reese Witherspoon (Madeline Martha Mackenzie), Shailene Woodley (Jane Chapman), Laura Dern (Renata Klein) and Zoë Kravitz (Bonnie Carlson).
“We’d love to [do another season] because we love being together, and it’s lovely spending time with your friends, and with such good material,” she added. “It’s part of the reason I wanted to do Bombshell, to support Charlize [Theron].”
Unfortunately, Kidman didn’t discuss any further details about a potential third season of Big Little Lies. However, Casey Bloys—president of programming at HBO—previously revealed that gathering the women for another installment is “not realistic.”
“I love this group of people—I would do anything with them,” he said. “But the reality is, they are some of the busiest actresses working in Hollywood.”
Still, if Kidman really said, “Just give us a sec,” we’ll take her word for it.
