This is despite the fact that the second season of Big Little Lies came to an end in July 2019. The last episode of the HBO/Sky Atlantic drama had to deal with a few problems when it came back to TV. A lot of people said that Andrea Arnold, the director who took over for Jean-Marc Vallée because he had a lot of work, had lost “creative control” of the show.
There were “a lot of sources close to the production” who talked about how “the show was yanked away from Arnold,” who directed American Honey and won an Academy Award for a live-action short called Wasp in 2005. Vallée is said to have been given the reins back, but he stayed on as an executive producer. Then HBO said, “There wouldn’t be a second season of Big Little Lies without Andrea Arnold.”
“We at HBO and the producers are extremely proud of her work. As with any television project, the executive producers work collaboratively on the series and we think the final product speaks for itself.” HBO’s head of programming, Casey Bloys, also weighed in: “We’re indebted to her, she did a beautiful job, and she got some of the best performances we’ve seen in a long time. We’re grateful to her.”
Big Little Lies Season 3 Release Date: Any Chances It Will Return?
We didn’t get the second season until June 2019. The first season aired in February 2017. It didn’t matter what Bloys had to say, because season two just didn’t live up to the first one. Both the critics and the people who watched didn’t like it. Despite that, the finale was watched by 1.98 million people when it first aired, and that number rose to 3.1 million people when it was shown on HBO’s other platforms.
When a show is popular, it has a good chance of being popular for a long time. First, David E Kelley said, “I didn’t think it was a very good idea.” Because it was a one-off, we made the ending very poetic and we wrote it in a way that made sense. But we ended up telling a lie at the end of the day. People and series can be so important to me that I don’t want them hurt. I was so happy with how we ended year one that I thought, “Let’s just leave it at that.”
But there was one thing that changed his mind: “There were a lot of things at play, but the main thing was a creative analysis.” Liane wrote a book of new stories, and most of them are being used by us. That was a smart move on Meryl Streep’s part. “It’s a delicious character and I felt bringing her in was both liberating and daunting. Daunting because she sets a high bar and you have to measure up, but liberating in that now the show’s not going to be compared to last year. There was freedom in that.”
Big Little Lies Season 3 Future Expectations:
Asked about the show’s second season on Vanity Fair’s “Little Gold Men” podcast, Kravitz said someone was supposed to die at the end. A woman said, “There was someone who was supposed to die, but it wasn’t me.” “I think the way we ended the season was interesting, but also everyone got to come together,” she said. In season one, these women and their stories were all very different, but at the end, they all came together. That was one of the most powerful things about that.
People went in the direction they did because of that, I think. But I’d like to do another season. It’s clear that she isn’t the only one. Over the past few months, the cast hasn’t lost any steam. During an interview with ET Canada, Reese Witherspoon said: “It’s true.” “We’re trying guys, we’re trying to come up with the right story and how do we end after that cliffhanger?” “We want to do it,” she added. Nicole talked to us, didn’t she? In the last few days, we talked to Nicole on Skype. Adds Laura Dern: “She just texted us that we need to do another one right away!”
A lot of people love this show so much that it has been nominated for 101 awards and won 54 of them. Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman spoke on behalf of the team when they won Best Limited Series at the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards. They said that the show’s success was due to the empowerment of women. Witherspoon said: “It’s been a great year for women in TV” (reported via The Hollywood Reporter). In their own stories, put women in the lead and make them the hero. Thank you for giving me the chance. Now, more roles for women in great roles, please!
Eight Emmy Awards were given to Big Little Lies that year, with Nicole Kidman taking home the prize for Best Lead Actress. There, she said that the show had done a good job of raising awareness of domestic violence and that her character was an example. This is what she said in her speech. Kidman said: “It’s a complicated and sneaky disease.” “We don’t know as much as we should.” With this award, you show that I’m important. “She told the crowd that Big Little Lies came about because Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon were tired of not having enough big roles for women.”
Let’s hope they keep getting people to support the third series so we can have more important roles and stories for a female-led cast that’s a lot of fun to watch.
