When HBO announced there would be a Big Little Lies Season 2, people went crazy with excitement. But how can there be a Season 2, the Internet asked, and what will it be about? Of course, Twitter is dream-casting Big Little Lies Season 2 already, and they have some really good ideas. The new season of the book-turned-HBO smash will be helped by the network's decision to introduce new characters into the Monterey community. According to Vulture, there will be four new characters, though it's unclear when each will be incorporated into the show.
Even so, fresh characters will re-energize the series, particularly since two of them are none other than Bonnie's (Zoë Kravitz) parents. In addition to Bonnie's mother and father, Monterey will welcome a school administrator who befriends Jane (Shailene Woodley) and a second grade teacher that will cause some tension with Renata (Laura Dern). Considering Kravitz's phenomenal parentage in real life — she's the daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet — Twitter is clamoring to include at least one of them in the show. As for the Otter Bay Elementary administrator that bonds with Jane over their mutual secrets, or the teacher whose global warming lesson gives poor Amabella a panic attack? They have plenty of ideas for that too.
Here's who Twitter wants to star in Big Little Lies Season 2.
Twitter Wants Lisa Bonet To Play Bonnie's Mom Or So Help Them
Lisa Bonet still acts, though she seems to have taken on less roles as she focuses on her family with current husband Jason Momoa. The best part about this is, most of the people on Twitter don't care who plays Bonnie's dad — be it Kravitz, Momoa, or whoever else — but they demand Bonet in the role of Bonnie's mother, who is described as "outwardly Zen," and "ultimately controlling and abusive." according to Vulture. Honestly? Yes. Please cast her in Big Little Lies Season 2, HBO gods.
There Are So Many Ideas For The Role Of Teacher That Fights With Laura Dern
Considering it's the teacher's lecture on climate change that causes Amabella to spin out, Laura Dern will need a formidable opponent. Tall, blonde, and hunky, Garrett Hedlund would certainly not be out of place in the scenic Monterey community. He's handsome and boyish, and has confidently led blockbuster films like Tron: Legacy. He's also just vaguely Alexander Skarsgard-ish enough to strike a figure at the Otter Bay PTA meetings. On the other hand, the mega-dreamy Jesse Williams actually spent several years teaching in Philadelphia public schools before committing to acting full-time. Twitter's funniest idea, though, has to be fans casting themselves in the series. Because really, why couldn't Mr. Perkins be played by a random woman writer from the Internet?
The Demand For Elvis Presley's Granddaughter Is High
Riley Keough is an actress, model, and singer. She also happens to be the granddaughter of the legendary Elvis Presley. Keough has appeared in a number of films, including Magic Mike, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Logan Lucky. She also received acclaim for her role in American Honey, which was directed by Andrea Arnold.
Since Arnold will direct every episode of Big Little Lies Season 2, film buffs are eager to see them work together again. There's another element in play: It's being floated that the school administrator that bonds with Jane will develop into a love interest for her. People seem eager to see Keough and Woodley together. Can't blame them for that!
There Is Legit An Endless Carousel Of 'Big Little Lies' Season 2 Ideas
Okay, maybe the Kate McKinnon-as-everyone idea is a stretch. Amber Tamblyn in the role of the school administrator could definitely work, though. Also, incorporating Naomi Watts somehow is an inspired choice. She has the perfect affect for the show; her whole vibe practically screams "I belong in the show's vision of Monterey!" Can you imagine those outfits, too?
And Now, For The All-Time Greatest Tweet About 'Big Little Lies'
Amen. Perhaps in Season 2, the Monterey women can develop superpowers and save us all from 2017?
HBO hasn't announced the premiere date for Big Little Lies Season 2 yet, but fans will keep a close eye on Reese Witherspoon's amazing Instagram to see who does end up joining the Otter Bay Elementary fundraisers. Season 2 of Big Little Lies is already everything fans didn't know they wanted, or needed. But one thing is for sure: It's going to be good.
