Nicole Kidman Defends Big Little Lies' Season 2 Return: "We Don't Have to Just Shut Down"

HBO’s star-studded limited series Big Little Lies — an adaptation of the novel written by Liane Moriarty — became the breakout hit of TV in 2017, and fans were either devastated by or satisfied with the idea that its seventh episode would be the end. That is, until rumors of a second season began circulating with the stars teasing their return and Moriarty revealing that she’d been approached by producers about another season. The second season was officially confirmed in December 2017, and according to all the details the stars have spilled, the story will continue soon after the dark events of season one.

Despite the scores of praise from fans and critics alike, the decision to bring back the limited series for another season has been met with a bit of trepidation. During a panel at The Wing in NYC, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, and Meryl Streep chatted with fans about season two, which is set to premiere on June 9.

Kidman noted that even though there are people who wanted the show to remain a stand-alone season, she’s happy that they all came back for another round. “Originally, it was that one go-around and I remember Reese and I both going, ‘Well, that’s that.’ Then by popular demand we had to address whether we wanted to do it again,” she said. “I had a lot of people say to me, ‘You did only one. It was fantastic as one season.’ And a friend of mine said, ‘Those women deserve their stories to be told beyond what was just that first season.'”
