Season two of Big Little Lies is looking like it might just go ahead. HBO are in discussions with author Liane Moriarty.
"I have started to think about ways this could continue," Moriarty told The Sydney Morning Herald. "The producers have asked me to see if I can come up with some ideas. I wouldn't write a new book but perhaps a new story and then we'll see what happens … there's definitely places you can go."
Big Little Lies starred Reese Witherspoon, Zoe Kravitz, Shailene Woodley and Nicole Kidman. The series of just seven episodes tells the story of three mothers whose lives unravel out of control. Fans were happy with the length of the series as it covered most of the content from the novel. All episodes were directed by Witherspoon's Wild filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club).
Moriarty said fans were keen for her to write more stories involving the Big Little Lies characters.
“ 99 per cent are saying ‘Please do it,’ but there is a small percentage saying ‘No, don’t do it, it should end there.”‘
Big Little Lies was originally published in 2014.
