“Big Little Lies” Season 2 is just inches away from getting officially renewed!

In fact, the HBO series’ fate is almost entirely sealed since TV Line is reporting that the production for Season 2 will possibly kick off in the spring of 2018. Last week, writer and director David E. Kelley told the same publication that Season 2 is close to being renewed.

“We’re kicking around ideas and trying to lasso the talent and get the band back together. It’s just a lot of logistical things. But I’m optimistic because everyone wants to do it. We feel we still have storytelling to do. No decision has been made yet, but we’re hopeful…” he said.

Unfortunately, a rep for HBO refused to comment on the production schedule of the Nicole Kidman-starrer.

Meanwhile, there are also some reports suggesting that “Big Little Lies” Season 1 director, Jean-Marc Valle, will no longer return to Season 2. According to TV Line, Valle couldn’t make it due to scheduling conflicts. There are rumors claiming that HBO is looking for a female director to help Season 2.

Valle’s non-involvement in a possible Season 2 shouldn’t come as a surprise because the director previously opposed the idea of a sequel. While speaking with Vulture in April, he said that there’s no need for a second season because the series is meant to be a limited one.

“No, no, this is perfect ending. There is no way; there is no reason to make Season 2. That was meant to be a one-time deal, and it’s finishing in a way where it’s for the audience to imagine what can happen. If we do season two, we’ll break the beautiful thing and spoil it,” he said.

However, fans of “Big Little Lies” have been clamoring for a second season especially since Season 1 ended with a cliffhanger. After Perry (Alexander Skarsgard) was killed, none of the female characters were implicated for it. The series also received multiple awards at the Emmys in September, which proved that it’s a show worth continuing for at least another season.
